MTV is inviting transgender military members to the 2017 Video Music Awards

"MTV has invited transgender members of the USA armed forces to the 2017 Video Music Awards and we would be honored if they could attend".

She proceeds to warn of her vengeance on everyone who's wronged her in the "Look What You Made Me Do" lyrics, which draw from the turmoil of negative publicity she has endured over the last few years.

While a public appearance at the VMAs would certainly bring the transgender military issue to the forefront, it's still unclear whether the invited troops will actually be able to attend the event at all.

MTV has invited transgender military members to attend this Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) in a protest against U.S. President Donald Trump's recently signed ban on openly transgender people serving in the military.

If you're looking for some red carpet action (aren't we all?!), tune in starting at 7pm ET/PT for the pre-show hosted by Lil Yachty.

The show will also feature gender neutral categories and awards.

While some of America's favorite stars will spend the evening sipping drinks from crystal-encrusted flasks (looking at you, Rihanna) and singing along during artist performances at the Forum in Inglewood, California, on Sunday, mere mortals will watch from the other side of the TV screen, anxiously waiting to see which contenders claim a moon man award. There were even rumors that the 27-year-old singer would bury the hatchet with this year's hostKaty Perry for a duet, like Swift did at the 2015 VMAs after her feud with Nicki Minaj.
