Chelsea Handler to Host VMAs

August 19, 2010 by  

File this under the category of  ‘Surprising Yet Kick Ass Moves’. During her late night E! talk show, Chelsea Handler announced that she will be hosting this year’s MTV VMAs.

Handler is only the second woman ever to tackle the hosting duties, but please don’t take her gender as an indication that this will be a softer, gentler VMAs.  Handler is one of the sharpest, most biting, relevant comics today and to say she isn’t afraid of going there (wherever there may be) is an understatement.

“This has been a huge year for hip-hop and rap, and it is well-known that I have the closest ties with these communities – musically and sexually,” she joked in a statement. “I am to rap and hippity-hop what Warren Buffet is to finance, minus the sex.”

Just when I think the only reason to tune into MTV is Jersey Shore and Teen Moms, the network goes and pulls off this big win!

The MTV VMAs will air LIVE on September 12th at 9pm.

Anyone else as excited as I am to see what trouble Chelsea will get herself in to? The comments are open for your sharing pleasure.
