Comedian Kevin Hart to host MTV Video Music Awards

LOS ANGELES (AP) - August 9, 2012

The comedian stars alongside Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in a video posted Wednesday on MTV's website. Hart tells the pair he's hosting the VMA show and that paparazzi are trying to get a look at "the new 'it' couple," even though they would actually be a trio. He says, "I'm talking about Kev-Ye-Kim."

The video shows a casually clad Kardashian and West, who is up for two Video Music Awards, lounging on the end of a bed. When West asks what Hart means, he offers other possible couple nicknames, including "Ye-Kev-Kim" and "Ye-Kim-Kev."

The MTV Video Music Awards will be presented Sept. 6 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
