Digital Dish:’106 & Park’ Host Keshia Chante on Bow Wow, Favorite Guests and the Harsh Realities of Google [Photos]
Terrence J and Rocsi have both tried acting; what are your plans for that?
I’ve done acting before in Canada. That was a lot of fun. Right now, priority is 106 & Park and music. I really just want to master being a television host right now. It’s a lot harder than it looks. Between the teleprompter and the earpieces and the DJs that are loud and the kids that are screaming and it’s live television, the content is changing throughout the show constantly. I just want to get to a point where I just make it look easy and once I get to that point, then I’ll expand into acting and stuff.
What celebrities would you like to see on the show?
They’ve been on the show, but not with me as the new host. I’m excited for Beyoncé and Rihanna. They are just fun girls. I’d like to see them. I can’t wait for Kanye to come on the show. I’m actually scared. I am kind of terrified. I think the trick with him is that the audience can’t scream. I kind of like when he rants.
How would you describe your style on the show?
I bounce around. I really like to be comfortable. In my dream world, I wear a beanie, baggy jeans, and crop top. I also like to be the trendy girl with the skinny jeans and the baggy sweater. Every week, the style team knows I want one baggy/comfortable outfit, one with really cute shoes and one that’s a dress.
What’s your style like off camera?
Glam with a little street. J-Lo’s my favorite fashion icon, especially when she’s in her “Jenny From The Block” moment and mixes urban with high fashion.
Is there a fashion or beauty trend that you are sick of?
You know what I hate? Uggs, but I just bought two of them from Nordstrom… I hate these things, but I’m wearing them.
