Rebel Wilson Hosting the MTV Movie Awards? So Far the Apocalypse Is Awesome

The MTV Movie Awards have finally figured out what it will take to get us to watch the MTV Movie Awards: they have announced that Rebel Wilson will be hosting this year's ceremony on April 14th, the first female host since Sarah Silverman in 2007, and a damn good choice at that. However, it being MTV, here is the weird, lame torture scene they announced the news with (co-starring Rebel's real life roommate Matt Lucas).

She confirmed the news via Twitter:

Wilson was last seen on the network at the Video Music Awards, presenting the Best Female Video category along with English band The Wanted, best known for being somehow involved with Lindsay Lohan in an Almost Famous capacity. [MTV, Vulture]


Leann Rimes indignantly denies pervasive rumors that she was drunk when she performed a duet of her song "How Do I Live" with 13-year-old X-Factor contestant Carly Rose Sonenclair: "'In my 18 years of performing, I have never been anything but professional onstage. It is a shame that gossip and lies are overshadowing the performance of Carly, a very talented young girl" Meanwhile, Rimes' lawyers claim that she was only trying to help the nervous Sonenclair onstage. The girl's family now blames Rimes for Carly Rose's defeat at the hands of Tate Stevens.

Wiz Khalifa and his pregnant fiancee Amber Rose told E! News that their kid was going to be born in a marijuana-friendly zone. ("Of course, I'm not going to be smoking right there over the baby, because smoke in general and being high is not good for a kid. None of that," he clarified.)

Khalifa: "I think it's all about how you're raised with it. Before there was a much more negative outtake on it. You know, pot and what it can do, and the effects of it."

Rose: "It's just like alcohol, basically. That's how I feel about it, you know. When you're a kid, you know that you're not supposed to drink alcohol, that it's for adults and that's it."

Khalifa: "Our son is just going to know that daddy likes to smoke." [E!]
