Well as you may have already noticed my obsession with the MTV VMAs knows no boundaries and this year is likely to be just as good. After their announcement of the nominations MTV revealed today that US comedian/talk show host Chelsea Handler will be hosting this year's show which takes place in L.A. on the 12th of September.
This is an interesting move and one that should pay off. Handler has built a strong profile and a knack for dealing with high profile celebs on her fantastic talk show Chelsea Lately and she is a fine ambassador for being perfectly snotty towards top name celebrites (and Katie Price)
Handler is a good choice and this strong New York Times piece goes into the detail behind MTV's decision to give her the role.
As if I wasn't excited for the awards already! In the meantime let's enjoy Handler grilling Justin Bieber one of the performers at the Awards this year.
