Pitbull a Diva? Joins Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus, Metric for VH1 Divas Special

He's known as Mr. 305, Mr. Worldwide, and Dat Lil Chico ... But a diva, he is not.

However, Pitbull is teaming up with VH1 Divas to help raise money for the network's Save the Music Foundation, as well as pay tribute to two of music's biggest deceased divas, Whitney Houston and Donna Summer.

The Miami MC turned international superstar will join Miley Cyrus, Kelly Clarkson, Kelly Rowland, Canadian indie-poppers Metric, and other present-day divas at the annual benefit show next month.

We're hoping that Pit digs deep into his aural arsenal and slaps these Divas with some "Culo."

On second thought, rapping about "esa hevita [que] esta enterita [y] tiene tremendo culo" at a concert celebrating all things female may come off a tad chauvinistic. As such, he probably shouldn't perform Chris Brown collaboration "International Love" either.

But we're not worried. 'Cause Pit'll know what to do. El tipo's professional as hell, and he works really well with women.

In fact, he's already collaborated with some divas, including Shakira, who performed at the 2002 VH1 Divas show. And for this year's show, the cable network tapped Australian DJ and Pit's "We Run the Night (RedOne Remix)" collaborator Havana Brown to hold down DJ duties.

Hosted by former American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert, this year's VH1 Divas benefit show will air live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Sunday, December 16, at 9 p.m. on VH1.
