More performers added to MTV VMAs

Rihanna is back for another performance at the MTV Video Music Awards, along with Pink, Paramore and T.I., who will be making his first appearance at a major awards show since his arrest right before an awards ceremony last year.

The VMAs are set for Sept. 7 in Los Angeles with British comedian Russell Brand as the host.

Performers already announced include the Jonas Brothers, Lil Wayne and Kid Rock.

Rihanna, who appeared with Chris Brown to sing her song ''Umbrella'' at last year's VMAs, is slated to perform her No. 1 hit ''Disturbia''; Paramore plans to sing ''Misery Business,'' while Pink is scheduled to showcase her new song ''Say What.''

''I can't wait,'' Pink said Thursday, adding that she plans to ''blow stuff up.''

Rapper T.I.'s appearance will be noteworthy given that the last time he was scheduled to perform at an awards show, he was arrested instead. He was apprehended in the parking last October before the BET Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta and accused of trying to buy machine guns and silencers; he was sentenced earlier this year to serve about a year in prison after completing at least 1,000 hours of community service. He has a new album out next month.
