James Franco Interviews Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea for VMA Special

In honor of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, VMA performers Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea sit down with entertainment tabloid TV host Dave Skylark, played by The Interview star James Franco, for “Dave Skylark’s Very Special VMA Special.”

During the 30-minute program, the uninformed Skylark asks the Aussie rapper if she knows Austrian actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and questions Nicki about her song “Super Bass,” or “Superb Ass” as he calls it, making for some funny and uncomfortable moments.

Jason Derulo also joins Skylark during the promo, which airs Sunday, August 17, at 9 p.m. on MTV.

Iggy will perform “Black Widow” with Rita Ora at the VMAs, while Nicki will treat viewers to the first performance of “Anaconda.”
