Chelsea Handler to Host MTV VMAs

Award show season just got interesting. Funny girl Chelsea Handler will host this years MTV VMA awards.

MTV announced Wednesday that the raunchy comedian will host the live show from Los Angeles on September 12. Bet they're hiring extra censor people.

"Everyone knows that when you think of rap music and hip-hop you think of Chelsea Lately," Handler joked on Wednesday's Chelsea Lately. "And that's why I will be hosting them."

It's certainly going to be an interesting year. Justin Bieber and Kanye West will reportedly perform together and Lady Gaga will probably be on stage more often than Chelsea considering she's up for 13 nominations.

Russell Brand has hosted the last two years, so it'll be refreshing to have someone like Chelsea on stage this year. What do you think of MTV's decision to hire Chelsea as a host?
