Rebel Wilson recently debuted her new rap persona, Rebelicious. The only thing that could possibly make that unveiling any more delightful is Wilson's acquisition of a fabulous hype woman, and that's exactly what happened when she sat down with Twitterer extraordinaire Maude Apatow for an interview.

In the following video, Wilson explains that she had to drop her sister as her hype woman because her sister wasn't really doing anything with her life. Apatow, on the other hand, is in in the upcoming movie "This is 40," and also has Judd Apatow for a dad, which doesn't hurt.

All she's really looking for in a hype woman, Wilson notes, is "someone who will do exactly what I say."
