Chelsea Handler continued her not-so-secret love for rappers while hosting this year's MTV Video Music Awards. The late night talk show queen opened the show with an a-- slapping montage that featured the likes of rapper Lil Jon and Flo Rida, before hitching a ride around the arena with Rick Ross on a red scooter. The 35-year-old talk show host, who is newly single, explained to The Boombox why she loves rappers so much. "Because I love black people!" she exclaimed.

Handler has become known for her adoration of rappers, shamelessly flirting with all of her hip-hop guests, including T.I. who she affectionately calls her boyfriend. Following a skit which found her in the hot tub with the cast of MTV's 'The Jersey Shore,' she emerged from the jacuzzi "pregnant." Handler revealed that a certain rapper was the father of her baby. "50 Cent -- he's the father," she said. "It's gonna be a mulatto."

This year's MTV Video Music Awards proved to be a big night for hip-hip with Eminem taking home the prestigious Best Male Video and Best Hip-Hop Video awards, and Kanye West making his return to the VMA stage after being shunned last year.
