The announcement that Chelsea Handler would be the host of this year's Video Music Awards came as a surprise to many. Chelsea explains, "When you think of rap music and hip hop, you think of Chelsea Lately." Riiight.

This will make Chelsea the first woman since 2007 (Sarah Silverman) to host the show and the 4th woman to host the show ever. And yet, many of us are left wondering who she slept with to get the gig.

The awards will air on September 12th.
