Chelsea Handler: I Love All Rappers -- Except Diddy
Chelsea Handler can get away with saying just about anything. And when it comes to her show, she wants stars who aren't afraid of speaking their mind.
“Rappers are great interviews because they just don’t really care and they are willing to say anything,” she said in the new issue of Hamptons magazine. “And I love that because that’s kind of how I am. They all hit on me. I love Pharrell and thought he was really sweet; Nelly, too."
But there is one rapper who won't be receiving her praises anytime soon.
"P. Diddy was the only one I was like, ‘Get away from me.’ He’s so late all the time—maybe he won’t show up in the Hamptons until summer is over," she said.
Either way, the comedian has a unique way of getting A-listers to be more candid than they might on other late-night talk shows.
“I love Jennifer Aniston. I love any girl that comes on and has fun and isn’t self-conscious about what she says, because it’s not that serious," she said.
"I don’t get in trouble a lot for what I say because people are used to hearing me say it, but if you’re a really big celebrity and say something that I would say, you get so much heat for it. It shouldn’t be that way. You should be able to say whatever you want as long as it’s not malicious or racist. As long as you’re joking around and it’s kind of innocuous, it’s OK.”
