Chelsea Handler Tries Too Hard As Host Of 2010 MTV Video Music Awards
Chelsea Handler and her dry humor tried just a little bit too hard at last nights VMA’s.
For the first time in 16 years, the MTV Video Music Awards was hosted by a woman, Chelsea Handler. Did Chelsea Handler’s jokes about everyone in the industry make the audience laugh or leave them with a sense that she tried entirely too hard?
Chelsea opened up the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards with a poke at Lady Gaga, as she was lowered down onto the stage wearing a ridiculous outfit, which consisted of a house on her head and a cage containing a pigeon in her crotch.
Chelsea Handler immediately spoke about her high hopes for the evening. She promoted everyone to be on their worst behavior and even went on to say that she snuck two sawed-off shotguns in through security. She was able to do so of course because she is white. Nothing like a nice racist joke to start off the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards.
Chelsea Handler continued the night with more of her ridiculous jokes, poking fun at everyone from Taylor Swift to Snooki. At one point in the night, Chelsea was in the hot tub with Snooki, The Situation, Pauly D and J-WoWW. After a commercial break she came back, got out of the hot tub and was wearing a pregnant suit of some sorts. Not sure what that was all about, I guess she got pregnant from the dirty Jersery Shore water?
Throughout the entire VMA’s Chelsea Handler jabbed at relatively easy targets with less than entertaining jokes. I belive she said Mariah Carey couldn’t be at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards because Nick Cannon was starting his first day of pre-school. Seriously? You are picked to host a big event like the 2010 MTV Music Awards and that is all you can come up with. Mariah and Cannon dating is old news and any jokes about them are not funny anymore.
From what I gathered after watching the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, Chelsea Handler is not funny and tried entirely too hard to entertain the audience. It is almost like she went to TMZ an hour before the show and read the past couple months headlines. That is all she covered and it was pretty damn boring.
It is a good thing that there were stellar performances by Eminem, Rihanna, BOB, Hayley Williams, Usher, Taylor Swift and Florence and the Machine because Chelsea Handler sucked as a host.
I hope that for next years MTV Video Music Awards they pick a host that has some sort of comedic value.
