Rihanna, Paramore, Pink and T.I. are the latest additions to the list of performers at this year's MTV Video Music Awards.

Also on the bill for the event, which is set to be held September 7 in Los Angeles, are Kid Rock, Lil Wayne and the Jonas Brothers.

"I can't wait," Pink told the Associated Press, adding that she plans to "blow stuff up."

British comedian Russell Brand will host the event, as previously reported. Britney Spears has been nominated for several awards and has done promos for the event, but it is not yet known whether she'll make an appearance on the show after her come-back debacle at last year's VMAs.
