Chelsea Handler to host 2010 MTV Video Music Awards

August 19, 2010 |  4:48 pm

Chelsea-handler-vma Talk-show host and comic Chelsea Handler has been revealed as this year's MTV Video Music Awards host.

Certainly a departure from last year's host, Russell Brand, Handler might not have a rock edge, but she can certainly be a loose canon when required. 

As host of E!'s "Chelsea Lately," Handler cuts up bold names and tabloid fodder, speaks often of her serious relationship with booze and deadpans like a pro. 

On Sept. 12, she'll have plenty of targets, as the always interesting Lady Gaga is nominated for a ton of trophies, Justin Bieber is set to perform and Ke$ha will serve as one of many presenters. 

Are you excited for this year's VMAs? Tell us in the comments section below.
