"I can tell you two are best friends. We're not going to get any work done," joked MTV News correspondent Sway Calloway.
There was a bit of work done, though. Lovato talked up her forthcoming album, Unbroken, due in stores September 20.
"It's definitely not pop/rock how I used to do. It's definitely more radio-friendly. It's more R&B, it's more pop, and I think you guys are going to like it," Lovato said. "I got a lot of collaborations with Timbaland, Missy Elliott ... Jason Derülo."
"You love Missy Elliott!" Selena shrieked.
Lovato is just one of many celebrities platinum recording artist and Emmy-winning actress Gomez interviewed. She talked to her peers alongside MTV's team of correspondents, including Calloway, Jim Cantiello and James Montgomery.
"I am very excited to be a part of the 2011 VMAs! After all of my years watching the VMAs, the pre-show has always been one of my favorite parts. It is a true honor to be hosting from the black carpet this year," Gomez said before the show in a statement.
