MTV recently chose Selena Gomez to host the 2011 MTV Europe Awards in Belfast, Ireland on November 6th. Gomez did such a great job this summer hosting the 2011 VMA pre-show that it appears the network trusted her to host an entire show.
“I’m so excited to be the host of the 2011 MTV EMAs – it’s a dream come true!” Selena told MTV. “This is such a huge event that always recognizes the biggest stars in music from across the globe, so it’s a real honor to be MC at this year’s show.”
Selena’s been in the public eye since the tender age of 7, so there’s no doubt the 19-year old Disney star can handle hosting the Europe MTV awards by herself—but giving her a rapping alter ego? That I’m not so sure sure about.
Check out the EMA promo where Selena reveals her hard, rapper self. Both Rapper Selena and “Regular” Selena sing about how they’re so glad to finally get their time to shine. Rapper Selena seems cocky, but Regular Selena is excited and grateful.
Don’t get me wrong, Selena’s a talented performer, but I think the rapper alter-ego is a little much. It’s a direct satire of Selena’s 45 seconds of fame rapping Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” that went viral on YouTube a couple months ago. So how does that translate into giving her a plaid-wearing, pants-sagging other half? Watch the promo and see for yourself.Tags: 2011 EMAs, hosting, MTV, promo, rapper alter ego, rapping, Selena Gomez, Super Bass
