Selena Gomez Debuts Rap Alter Ego For The MTV Europe Awards Promos
Following in the footsteps of many artists before her, like Brandy (Brand’Nu), Tyrese (Black Ty) and her boyfriend Justin Bieber (Shawty Mane), pop starlet Selena Gomez has debuted a rap alter ego. But unlike her predecessors, she’s not really serious. Whew!
The 19-year-old channeled her inner Nicki Minaj for the leaked promo as the host of the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards. Sitting in front of a mirror in a cotton candy pink room, the Wizards of Waverly Place star begins to talk to her refection. “I guess I did it,” she says. “Finally, I get to host the EMAs. Wow…” Her reflection, a gang-banger wannabe of sorts, complete with a bandanna and blood red lipstick responds, “Seriously? Shut your face. Who else could it be?”
Squeaky clean Selena then duets with her badass rapping other self, who rhymes: “Who else better than me to be hosting the show / People know who the F I is, I’m a pro / The right time and place for me to be / Yeah, I’ll say it, congratulations to me.”
This isn’t the first time the teen queen has shown off her rapping chops. The singer, who is nominated for the MTV EMA Biggest Fans Award, against Lady Gaga, Paramore, 30 Seconds to Mars and Justin Bieber, has been known to perform “Super Bass” in concert on more than one occassion.
Check out’s the “hostest with the mostest” below. Will you tune in when Selena hosts the Belfast ceremony on November 6th?
