The comedian says no one is off-limits...
Chris Rock will aim his barbed wit at the nominees for the BET Awards next month. PEOPLE reports that the actor/comedian will host the award show, which airs on June 29th at 8 PM ET on BET.
Rock told the site in regard to his jokes during the show, "Nobody is off limits. I'm sure I'll get some memo I'll ignore."
This is his first time hosting the gig. He added, "To me you've got to get in that barbershop funny. You've got to know what's going on. Be aware. Get your timing. I don't change a lot. I try to pay attention to the show."
As previously reported, Jay Z, Beyoncé and Drake lead the nomination list with five noms apiece. Pharrell Williams and August Alsina have four nods each.
Rock said, "I'm rooting for everybody. It's weird because I usually root for the person whose life it'll change the most. I love Beyonce, but she'll be fine whether she wins or not. I root for the little people."
