New York, consider yourself warned: Miley Cyrus is coming for you.
In a new promo for the upcoming 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, which will be held at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Aug. 25, the “We Can’t Stop” singer leads a pack of fire-breathing fans and graffiti artists through the borough’s filthy subway tunnels as they march onward to the festivities.
It’s a clever clip that begins with a subway busker performing an acoustic version of Cyrus’ hit song and ends with Cyrus giving her now-infamous growl to the camera. No sleep ’till Brooklyn.
With Cyrus joining a roster that includes performances from Lady Gaga and Kanye West, this year’s VMAs look to be as buzzworthy as ever. Be sure to check out the clip above.
The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards air live Sunday, Aug. 25 at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.
