The song is the first single from her upcoming album “Teenage Dream,” slated for release beginning August 24 (US) and later that week in the rest of the world. She joins the case of new movie, “Grown Ups” — Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Kevin James, Rob Schneider and David Spade, along with Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, Anna Kendrick and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. Other stars confirmed for the show include Christina Aguilera and presenters Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Zac Efron, Jonah Hill, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Steve Carell, Miranda Cosgrove, Shaun White, Vanessa Hudgens, Sean “Diddy,” Combs and Russell Brand.

Said Katy: “I’m proud to represent the West Coast at the MTV Movie Awards in the magical glow of the Hollywood sign with my new single ‘California Gurls.’ I hope it will be the theme song to a lot of summer loving, I know it will in my house!”
