VMAs host Kevin Hart: The DNC can't compete with me

Sure, the President's going to speak at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday night, but MTV Video Music Awards host Kevin Hart is confident in his ability to draw an audience.

The timing of the two events will narrowly miss each other, as this year's VMAs will air from 8 to 10 p.m. and President Obama is set to accept the Democratic nomination for a second term after 10 p.m.

But, as Hart noted when we chatted with him Tuesday about the slight scheduling conflict, have you seen how many Twitter followers he has?

"I don't think they can compete. 'Cause it's me! You know at the end of the day, the world wants to see me," Hart joked (we think). "You know, I've got six million followers on Twitter ... [the] Facebook fan page is almost at seven million. Click of a button baby... It's easy. All I have to do is tweet that I'm about to go on stage and everybody's going [to] watch it in the world."

Hart expects that those viewers might also catch a few awkward moments - and hopefully, he added, one between Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

But, he cautions, this is live TV - you never know what you're going to get, especially with the VMAs.

"You have to expect the unexpected, I mean that's the beauty of having a live show. So literally - I'm welcoming the nonsense," Hart told us. "I hope something crazy DOES happen. It gives me more material, it gives me more stuff to play with so I honestly hope something does happen. I WANT Robert and Kristen to come. I want to see it! I want to see it be awkward. I want to see 'em not really speak and hug and try to pretend in front of the press. I think it'll be hilarious."

    I would be happy if the MTV audience flips the channel to the DNC coverage tonight so they can make a well-informed choice this November. I’m working at Dish tonight so I set recordings for both programs on my Hopper so I can see them both later. The 2,000 hours of hard drive space helps me keep up with shows that are on at the same time. I’m sure it was also a difficult choice for celebrities to choose which party to attend tonight, so to speak!

  10. Yea Right...

    vh1 has a personality.. they don't need to put anyone in lines...they respond to them immediately.
    One doesn't have the personality? then nobody has to stand in "line" to anyone.

    Honestly...think about it. What sense does it make to even have a "video music award" from a channel that has turned its back on music videos? Gone are the days you could actually sit down and watch the latest music videos from a group on the channel...now we're all going to the internet. Wouldn't have to if the channel that is called Music television, MTV, kept in line with its premise and hadn't sold out.
