Richard Simmons Is Taking Over MTV's 'Video Music Awards' Red Carpet

Tonight marks the 30th year for MTV’s “Video Music Awards.”

For the first time ever, the network’s awards ceremony is being held in Brooklyn, N.Y.

As the celebrities are rolling in, many are surprised to see Richard Simmons among the star-studded crowd cozying up to celebrities and being absolutely fabulous.

Just what is the 65-year-old fitness god doing at the ceremony? Well, earlier this month he released a song along with lyric video “Hair Do.”

Check out Simmons livening up the red carpet:
