Demi Lovato excited for Selena Gomez’s MTV VMA pre-show gig

Demi has some kind words.

On Sunday night, one of the most highly-anticipated TV gigs of the year is going to be here courtesy of the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards — and one person is going everything they can to make it clear just how excited they are for one of their friends.

At a phone launch event earlier this week in Hollywood, Demi Lovato was greeted by a massive crop of her devoted fans — and also talked with a good many publications about everything from her music to her continued recovery following a stay in treatment.

However, Demi may have been the most excited when talking about pal Selena Gomez’s red-carpet gig for the VMA pre-show (which airs Sunday night at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time):

“I have no advice because I’ve never hosted anything in my life … But she’s great; she’ll do fine.”

Demi and Selena have been friends ever since their days on “Barney & Friends” as children, and the two recently posed on the red carpet together for the 2011 Teen Choice Awards earlier this month.

Are you excited to see how Selena will do in this gig?
