MTV invites trans soldiers to attend VMAs following Trump's military ban

MTV confirmed Thursday that they have invited transgender military members to this year's Video Music Awards in response to President Donald Trump's new guidelines on the matter.

Whether or not the "Look What You Made Me Do" video alludes to any other Kanye-related drama is yet to be determined, but fans are sure to keep their eyes peeled during its VMAs reveal.

The MTV will be broadcast in the United Kingdom on the MTV channel at 8pm on Monday. Also, Todrick Hall, is that you? Miley Cyrus, Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes and Fifth Harmony are also slated to perform, which should make for an interesting moment, considering all four are contending for the Best Pop award. Oh, and to add more fuel to the fire, the ceremony will be hosted by Katy Perry, another celeb Swift has been known to have ongoing beef with.

While Lorde will likely be the highlight performance of the night, we're especially looking forward to seeing rapper Cardi B hit the stage to perform her hit single "Bodak Yellow", which has become the song of the summer, reaching the number three spot on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.

Who is nominated for what? They've recently ditched separating categories by gender at both the Movie & TV Awards and now the VMAs, and there are now categories devoted to achievements in activism.

Wait, some of those categories are new. Instead of "Best Male Video" and "Best Female Video", the VMAs will simply award "Artist of the Year" and instead of their traditional Moonman trophies they will present "Moonperson" trophies, though it's unclear whether they'll look any different seeing as real-life men's and women's space suits differ only in size.

However, despite the speculation, it sounds like we probably shouldn't get our hopes up.

When asked about the speculation of a Katy-Taylor reunion at the VMAs, however, show producer Garrett English was quick to halt the stories in their tracks. "The first acting award in history that doesn't separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience", Watson said during her speech.
