Leslie Jones Hosting The BET Awards Will Make You Laugh


Leslie Jones will be hosting the 2017 BET Awards this Sunday, June 25, so you know what I'll be doing all weekend: preparing to laugh my *ss off.

Elite Daily was able to talk to the SNL star about what fans can expect from the awards show, and let me tell you, this interview will pump. you. up.

When I was first connected on the phone with Jones, she was in the middle of ordering a margherita pizza. If this woman isn't your hero, I don't know who is.

After giving the delivery girl $50 or whatever, Jones was able to talk with me about the BET Awards. First, I asked her if she has any surprises up her sleeve for the big night. She tells me,

Honestly, I'm ready. She adds,

GIRL, YOU'RE GONNA KILL IT. In terms of her hosting style, Jones did clarify she's "not a roaster." She explains,

The BET Awards will take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California. Therefore, it's gonna be hot, hot, hot.

I asked Leslie Jones if she has any hacks for how to survive the heat on the red carpet. She shares,

I WILL DIE IF I SEE JONES IN AN UMBRELLA HAT. Please, girl, we need it.

Be sure to watch the 17th Annual BET Awards this Sunday, June 25, at 8 p.m. ET on BET. You can check out the full list of nominees here.

Good luck, Leslie! I'll be laughing at your jokes all night long.
