2014 MTV Video Music Awards return to Los Angeles at the Forum [VIDEO]

After a quick jump over to Brooklyn last year, the MTV Video Music Awards are packing up and heading back to Los Angeles.

Today (April 23), MTV announced that the VMAs will be going to the West Coast once again but will be moving away from its familiar venues (Nokia Theater and the Staples Center) for the newly renovated Forum, technically in Inglewood, Calif.

MTV announced the VMAs return to California with a short video, featuring the Moonman statue on a glamorous car in front of the Forum.

The Forum, once one of the most world-class venues in the country, experienced a bit of a decline over the last 20 years, before going under a major renovation thanks to Madison Square Garden, which purchased the hall in June 2012.

The hall reopened in January with a six-night residency by the Eagles. The VMAs will be the first major awards show event ever held at the venue.

The 2014 Video Music Awards will take place on Aug. 24. No other information, including a host, nominees or performers, has been announced.

The 2014 Inglewood VMAs follow last year's controversial ceremony, in which Miley Cyrus stripped down to nude underwear and gave a lewd performance of "We Can't Stop" and "Blurred Lines" with Robin Thicke. The incident made headlines for weeks following the ceremony and helped to launch both Cyrus and the VMAs back into the spotlight.
