Phelps to Cap Busy Week at Video Music Awards
He does comedy, writes books and mixes it up with the hottest stars in music and Hollywood. With all this, who needs swimming?
Certainly not Michael Phelps. But as a presenter at the 2008 Video Music Awards, all that fresh Olympic bling will certainly help.The swimmer who took home a record-breaking eight gold medals from the Beijing Games joins Miley Cyrus, Scarlett Johansson, Lindsay Lohan and Ciara as presenters at the Sept. 7 VMAs telecast from Los Angeles. British comedian Russell Brand will host.
It's been a busy week for Phelps, who announced he'll write a book about his road to Olympic history.
