On September 12, comedian, television host and best-selling author Chelsea Handler will be hosting the MTV Video Music Awards broadcast live from Los Angeles.
Most popularly known as the E! host of late-night show Chelsea Lately, Chelsea Handler will take the VMA stage, joining the company of past hosts such as Russell Brand, Jimmy Falon, Chris Rock, Jack Black, Arsenio Hall, and Eddie Murphy. She’s like, VMA host girl power.
The New York Times best-selling author of books Are You There Vodka? It’s Me Chelsea and Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang told the New York Times online that “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.” Chelsea added that “her irreverent comedic sensibility will help her win over an MTV viewership that is more likely tuning in for a performance by Justin Bieber, the 16-year-old pop sensation.”
VMA performances also include B.o.B., Kanye West and Drake, Florence + The Machine, Nicki Minaj, and… Selena Gomez? The wizard?
Tune in for the VMAs Sunday, September 12, 9/8c. It shall be a riot.
