News of a Punk’d return to MTV has been swirling around for months and recently heated back up with the news that Justin Bieber would prank Taylor Swift in the first return episode.
The new format for Punk’d will have a few differences from the original. First, a rotating host will be used each episode. Second, Ashton Kutcher will executive produce instead of being a staple host.
The reports of Justin Bieber’s part in Punk’d began to surface right before his MTV Video Music Awards appearance and some thought he might try his prank on Taylor Swift there, but it looks like the episode might have already been filmed.
Punk’d ran at the hands of Ashton Kutcher for four seasons and pranks were had on a slew of famous faces faces including Jessica Alba, Tyra Banks, Outkast, Thora Birch, Tommy Lee, Beyonce and Justin Timberlake.
We’re hoping the joke isn’t on us, because a Justin Beiber prank on Taylor Swift will be a sight to see.
In other Justin Bieber news, the music star was recently in a car accident when another vehicle tried to go around him. Have no fear, JBiebs is fine. His Ferrari was okay too.
The Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement, ”No one was injured and there was no damage to either vehicle.”
