MTV issued a press release Friday announcing that Gomez will “be reporting breaking news and interviewing her peers alongside MTV News correspondents Sway, Jim Cantiello and James Montgomery.” (In case you’re wondering, there is always a ton of breaking news on the black carpet at the VMAs.)

Gomez is quite excited.

“After all of my years watching the VMA’s, the pre-show has always been one of my favorite parts,” she says in the press release.

Hey, who knows? Maybe she’ll be good at this and can eventually work her way up to asking questions on the Golden Globe red carpet for E!

At the very least, she’ll most certainly have some hard-hitting questions to ask Justin Bieber during the VMAs on Aug. 28.
