Chelsea shifts to MTV for the night

Chelsea Handler will host the Sept. 12 MTV Video Music Awards.Handler

The latenight E! star will handle the jokes from the stage of the Nokia Theater for the annual kudofest in which nobody remembers who won. This one’s all about bling, fashion and ‘Did he really say that on live TV?’ moments.

Presenters include Kanye West (who knows a little something about trying to be too cool on live TV), Justin Bieber, Emma Stone and Penn Badgley.

“This has been a huge year for hip-hop and rap, and it is well-known that I have the closest ties with these communities musically and sexually,” said Handler. “I am to rap and hippity-hop, what Warren Buffet is to finance, minus the sex.”

Jesse Ignjatovic and Dave Sirulnick are exec producers.
