Miley Cyrus, the queen of twerking who is no stranger to controversy these days, will appear as host and musical guest on "Saturday Night Live" on Oct. 5, when the comedic sketch show returns for its 39th season.

Before Cyrus hits the stage, SNL veteran Tina Fey will host the first episode of the season on Sept. 28. Bruce Willis will host the third episode on Oct. 12. Katy Perry will host later in the season, and rumor has it that Lady Gaga will perform, although she is not confirmed like the others, MTV reported.

Cyrus' hosting gig comes days before the Oct. 8 release of her album "Bangerz," which features her hit single "We Can't Stop" that the singer performed at MTV's August Video Music Awards show. On Monday, the music video for Cyrus' single "Wrecking Ball" came out, and it depicts the 20-year-old star swinging back and forth naked on a wrecking ball. The video was shot by famed photographer Terry Richardson.

Cyrus' controversial stream of scantily clad appearances and suggestive dance moves on the VMAs and in her music videos has garnered immense publicity for the star, who started out as a Disney actress on "Hannah Montana."

Cyrus has been called "raunchy" by critics for her recent behavior, and rumors are swirling that the star may have been axed from the December cover of Vogue, after Editor Anna Wintour found Cyrus' on-stage conduct to be "distasteful." The Parents Television Council even filed a formal complaint about her VMA performance.

But the negative attention hasn't appeared to faze Cyrus.

"I don't pay attention to the negative because I've seen this play out so many times," Cyrus said in the clip for an upcoming MTV documentary. "How many times have we seen this play out in pop music? Madonna's done it. Britney's done it. Every VMA performance, that's what you're looking for; you're wanting to make history."

Her upcoming SNL gig has everyone wondering how she will shock the world next.

There are no questions surrounding Fey's hosting gig, as the funny woman never fails to deliver. This is Fey's fourth hosting job since she left the cast in 2006, and her first since her hit sitcom "30 Rock" — based partly on "SNL" — ended its run on NBC last year. Arcade Fire will be Fey's musical guest, according to the New York Daily News.

Like preceding seasons, "SNL" will have a different cast this season, and several long-term members have left, like Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, and Jason Sudeikis. Seth Meyers will return for the fall season, however, before he moves to his own late-night show early next year.
