Chelsea Handler Talks Her Love of Hip-Hop
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.
