Inneresting choice, MTV. Inneresting!
Late Night comedian Chelsea Handler, who hosts E! network’s Chelsea Lately, will host the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, which airs on Sept 12.
Traditionally, this hosting role has gone to males, and actually, the last female host of the VMAs was Roseanne Barr, who hosted back in 1994!
Here’s what Chelsea had to say about the honor:
“If there’s one awards show that I should be hosting, it’s probably this one. My personality probably wouldn’t jell with the Emmys or the Golden Globes.”
Other than Chelsea’s hosting skills, a Justin Bieber performance will be another big draw for the show. Maybe Justin and Chelsea can collaborate on something during the VMAs. We’re not sure what they would do, but collaborating with the Biebs is definitely the thing to do these days!
Perhaps they’ll make an announcement of a new book: Are you there Justin? It’s Me, Chelsea.
Will U tune in to MTV on Sept 12 for Chelsea?
