Lindsay Lohan will be the queen bee of the MTV Movie Awards, serving as host of the June 10 ceremony.
The 17-year-old actress stars in “Mean Girls,” a comedy about high school queen bees and wannabes.
“Lindsay is smart, funny, she has an amazing connection to the MTV audience, and she’s a huge star,” the network’s president, Van Toffler, said Thursday. “That makes her the perfect choice to host this year’s show.”
Lohan’s other movies include “Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen” and last year’s remake of “Freaky Friday.”
“Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” has the most MTV Movie Award nominations with six, including best movie and best on-screen team for co-stars Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom.
D12, the Beastie Boys and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are among the bands scheduled to perform at the show, which will be taped June 5 at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, Calif.
