Why We’re Excited Chrissy Teigen Is Co-Hosting Billboards

If you haven’t been following Chrissy Teigen on social media, you’re been missing out—especially on Twitter. Teigen is easily one of the most entertaining people on social media—between firing shots back at hateful commenters, sharing personal details about her and John Legend’s life together, or making jokes left and right, she offers a refreshing taste of the realness from her personal life, dismantling the idea that just because she is a supermodel, and married to one of the most successful singers in the world, she is without flaws.
Which, oddly enough, only makes her more loveable. This is (just one of the reasons) why we are so excited that Teigen will be hosting the BIllbard Music Awards tonight alongside Ludacris. As a first-time host, Teigen has been the first to admit that she is “scared shitless” for how tonight is going to go.
Last week, she posted a photo of herself from BIllbaord with the heart-warming caption: “If you would have told me 10 years ago this would be my life, I would have laughed my puffy little face off. Grateful for my @imgmodels team who told me to not change a thing when every other agency wanted me to change absolutely everything.” PREACH, Chrissy!

But in good “buzz-worthy” fashion, Teigen has been giving her audience much anticipation leading up to tonight’s show, sharing Instagrams and Tweets in the days leading up to tonight’s show as they get ready—from piles of shoes from the fittings to an array of hair extensions she’s trying on while reading the script.
“[She’s] already my new best friend!” Ludacris told his Instagram followers in a behind-the-scenes clip he shared at their cover photoshoot for Billboard. In the magazine interview, Teigen shared some insight and opinions about everything from the red carpet interviews and celebrity tun-ins, to wardrobe malfunctions and drinking at the event.
Below are some of Teigen’s quotes from the interview, perfect examples of why we’re so excited to have this hilarious and refreshingly-blunt personality hosting tonight.

On Red Carpet Wardrobe Malfunctions

“I have broken my dress and can’t even zip it, so we have to leave – that’s why I’ve missed every carpet appearance…One time we had to go into Virginia to find me a new dress. Nip slips, everything – I’ve seen it all. Honestly, I don’t really care.”

On Fancy Outfits

“I’m not a fashion girl, so it’s cool to be dolled up and have those diamonds where they send armed guards with you.”

On Ever Being Drunk at Award Shows

“Yes. All of them. Honestly.”

On Random Celebrity Encounters

“I sat by Grumpy Cat once. You know that cat everyone is obsessed with? That’s pretty random. She’s not allowed to be touched. Are you kidding? You can’t put a cat next to me and expect me not to touch it.”
While we know Teigen has expressed how nervous she is for hosting tonight, we know we couldn’t be more excited. With the two playful personalities Teigen and Ludacris have, it’s sure to be entertaining!
