See the New VMA Moonman, Redesigned by Jeremy Scott
The redesigned Moonman will be handed out to this year's winners
The MTV VMA Moonman has become one of the most iconic images on television, but for this year’s show, producers are giving it a facelift, courtesy of designer Jeremy Scott.
“From the distinct color of the TV color bars, to the peace sign necklace, to Jeremy’s signature sneakers,” the network says, “the redesign of the statue is part of MTV’s long-standing history of bridging the gap between the world of fashion and music.”
The redesigned award will be handed out to every winner this year, so if you want one, you’ll probably have to make some significantly more famous friends.
The MTV VMAs air live on Sunday, Aug. 30, at 9 p.m. As you may have guessed from that promo, Miley Cyrus will be hosting. The Weeknd is set to perform, along with some other as-yet-unannounced guests.
