“Hi guys! I’m really excited to announce I’ll be hosting this year’s VH1 Divas!” the 47-year-old wrote on her Twitter page. “I am so excited!!”
The VH1 Divas concert will be televised live from the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn, New York. The special will air @ 9PM ET/PT on Thursday, September 17 on VH1.
“It was just a drunk dude at a concert [who] just like jumped on my back,” the 22-year-old told Extra. “Not that I wouldn’t [defend her], cause I love Paula. I would hit the streets for her but that’s not what happened.”
Idol alum Michael Johns also was shocked at the Paula news: “What can I tell you, I was a bit flabbergasted. Definitely she’s the reason people tune in whether you love her or whether you just want to see if she’s going to be a train wreck, you know. I think something special from the show will be missing.”
