Willow Pape is going to be so jealous, because Kim Kardashian is bringing her star power to the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards again!

This will mark the second such gig for the 33-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and wife of rapper Kanye West. Kardashian joins a growing list of at least 11 celebrity presenters that includes the likes of singers Gwen StefaniDemi Lovato and Jason Derulo and three Orange Is The New Black actresses.

MTV announced the news on Wednesday. The 2014 MTV VMAs will air live from The Forum theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, Aug. 24 (check out a list of nominations).

Kardashian made her debut at MTV's annual music awards ceremony in 2010 and last presented at the VMAs in 2011, when she donned a gorgeous, sparkling silver Kaufman Franco gown and handed the Moonman statuette for Best Male Video to Justin Bieber.

And speaking of another Franco, actor James Franco recently appeared in a VMAs promo titled Dave Skylark's Very Special VMA Special, in which he plays an awkward talk show host and interviews Derulo as well as rappers Iggy Azalea and Nicki Minaj, who is performing at the ceremony. In the video, the actor's frequent co-star, Seth Rogen, pretends to be a producer.

Franco asks Minaj about her butt, which she shows off prominently in her new sexually-charged and innuendo-filled music video "Anaconda," which was released on Wednesday.

"Is it natural or did you have to work on it?" he asks, adding, "There's like two balloons back there. It's like another being, almost, behind you."

Check out a list of presenters and performers confirmed to appear at the show, as of Wednesday.
