We caught Lauren in a rare free moment (guys, she’s prepping for the MMVAs! It’s kinda a big deal!) and got her to answer some of our questions. Check out the interview below!
What are you going to be doing for the MMVAs?
I will be co-hosting the 2013 MMVAs with Scott Willats and PSY!
What’s your favourite MMVA moment?
My favorite moment of the MMVAs is walking out onto that stage and seeing the see of happy fans screaming their faces off. I always make sure to take a moment to take it all in so I can remember that feeling. It’s just so different from anything else I do as a MuchMusic VJ!
Who are you looking forward to seeing at the 2013 MMVAs?
I can’t wait to see PSY. I think he’s the funniest celebrity co-host to ever grace the MMVA stage.
What have you been doing to prep for MMVA madness?
I’ve honestly just been trying to keep it peaceful and simple. This is my third year and I feel like I have a great grasp on everything that’s required of me in terms of picking an outfit, getting ready, doing press, and rehearsing for the show. I don’t need to sweat it! The night before I’ll be dying my roots, painting my nails, and getting my fake tan on.
What’s the best piece of advice the other VJs have given you?
The first year I co-hosted in 2011, Sarah Taylor told me “stay present”. I remember that always.
Any hints as to what you’re gonna wear to the MMVAs?
It’s tight and glittery. You can’t miss me!
If you could win an MMVA, which one would you want to win?
Best MuchMusic VJ, obviously. That’s not a real category though. Haha!
Why do fans need to watch the MMVAs?
Fans need to watch the MMVAs because you’ll see your favorite celebs and pop acts all on one unique stage. Plus there’s always surprises and unexpected moments, being a live show, and you’re going to want to be the first to see it all go down.
Watch the 2013 MMVAs on Sunday at 9E/6P on Much in Canada and Fuse in the U.S. Don’t miss The MMVAs RED CARPET SPECIAL, which airs just before the big show at 8E/5P.
