Only a legend!

Word on the street was that Christina Aguilera was set to receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the VMAs on August 27, but MTV has announced the prestigious honor will be given to Pink.

It makes perfect sense. The singer recently dropped her brilliant new tune, “What About Us,” off her forthcoming album Beautiful Trauma out Oct. 13.

The accolade is given to musicians who have inspired a profound effect on the MTV culture. In the last five years, MTV has honored Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Kanye West and Rihanna.

Congrats, P!nk!
