MTV VMAs host Kevin Hart has threatened to put a seatbelt on Kanye West so he doesn't storm the stage again on Thursday (06.09.12).

The rapper caused controversy at the Video Music Awards in 2009 when he interrupted Taylor Swift's speech, after she won the award for Best Female Video, to insist Beyonce Knowles should have won and Kevin is taking no chances this year.

He joked to BANG Showbiz: ''What we did this year was we banned the artists who could embarrass themselves.

''With Kanye we've got a seatbelt for his seat that he can't get out of, little things that they never thought of in the past to make sure it all goes ok this year.

''No, actually I Hope someone does something stupid though, that's what it's all about.

We need stuff to talk about the next day. It's the MTV VMAs. This is where all the stupid stuff can happen and should happen.''

While this is Kevin's first time hosting the event, he is a fan of the show and says Chris Rock, who presented in 1997, 1999 and 2003, was his favourite host.

He explained: ''Chris Rock was my favourite VMA host of the past because he did the unexpected. He talked about everybody but he did it in a way that showed people they could laugh at themselves. That set a great tone for the VMAs.

People come in as if they're perfect and we show them that they're not. We're here to have fun.

''You don't know what to expect. No one's off limits, I'm gonna show people they can poke fun at themselves.''

The MTV VMAs will take place at the Los Angeles Staples Center on Thursday, September 6. For more information go to MTV.com
