Kevin bashed Russell’s previous MTV Video Music Awards hosting gigs, right before ex-wife Katy came on stage to present! Read on for more details.
Kevin Hart took the stage at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards on Thursday, Sept. 6 and began his monologue by joking about mistakes that had been made at the ceremony in previous years, zeroing in on Russell Brand‘s back-to-back hosting appearances! Russell’s ex-wife Katy Perry appeared on stage almost immediately after and thanked Kevin for the diss!
During his monologue, Kevin said, “I’m gonna make mistakes because people have made mistakes here before…Russell Brand hosting…twice! The point is, tonight I will make tons of mistakes. Prep yourself [because] you don’t know what I’m gonna do!”
Katy came on stage almost immediately after to present the award for Best Pop Video and began her bit by saying, “Thank you, Kevin!” She must’ve got a real kick out of it!
Russell hosted the VMAs in 2008 and 2009 and also hosted the MTV Movie Awards this year.
Do you think Kevin’s diss of Russell was funny, HollywoodLifers?
