Recently doing her promotional duties by posing for press pics, Katy is ready for the big job and cannot wait to do it again.  And so how is she preparing? By getting sexy. Katy says she wants to make it as sexy as possible by wearing only skimpy outfits that show off her body. “I’m hosting the MTV Europe Music Awards again. This time with more outfits and more antics. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it eh? Yay!”Last year, everyone loved Katy, whose hit song I Kissed A Girl was just out. Her costume wardrobe has gotten even wilder so we’ll have to wait and see what she has this year! The 2009 MTV Europe Awards will take place in Berlin November 5th.
