No longer hosting the show in Las Vegas, MTV is moving their annual Video Music Awards ceremony to Paramount Studios on September 7, according to the Associated Press. The plan is to broadcast from the studio lot, rooftops and city streets making this edition possibly a very local and special show for Los Angeles. "With Paramount Pictures as the ideal setting, the glamour and musical heritage of L.A. are sure to be catalysts for creating explosive pop culture moments that the VMAs are known for," the president of MTV Networks Music Group, Van Toffler, said in a statement.
