Leslie Jones to host BET Awards

Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones has signed on to host the 2017 BET Awards.
The Saturday Night Live regular is returning to the network where she landed her first TV break.
“I went out in the world and did what I needed to do and now I can come home to my people and say, ‘Yo! Look what I did!'”
And Jones insists she’ll be leaving politics and world affairs at home when she hits the stage on 25 June (17).
“I am tired of everybody being sad and angry,” she tells People. “I want people to just downright laugh. You can’t do the event without touching on certain things, but I’m trying to make it all funny. It’s really just about pulling the elephants out of the room and, actually, I’ll make the elephant in the room laugh about it.”
Meanwhile, the big talking point at the BET Awards this year is sisters Beyonce and Solange both competing for Best Female R&B/Pop Artist.
