“Dope” isn’t available to download until November 4, but Lady Gaga just unveiled the single artwork. It’ll be the third and final promo single until ARTPOP drops. Mother Monster lives up to her moniker and looks a tad frightful. Fitting I suppose since she debuted it on Halloween. Gaga spots an extremely shoulder-padded blazer ripped from the 80s, a floppy hat, some serious grill and barely-there sheer underwear. Just another typical fashionable look from the “Applause” singer.
With Kerry Washington hosting this weekend’s Saturday Night Live, naturally, a few Scandal references are in order. SNL regular Taran Killam teams up with the 36-year-old actress for a series of promos. The best one features the two playing up the ABC drama’s signature flair for the dramatics. Their looks when they look straight into the camera and utter “ooooh Scandal” are priceless.
If this is a taste of things to come, I’m definitely recording this weekend’s show. Believe it or not, Washington is only the 9th African-American woman to host in the show’s 39-year history. Insane, right? Watch all the promos below.
Gladiators be sure you set your digital recording devices to tape Saturday Night Live on November 2. Kerry Washington is breaking her SNL cherry that night and hosting the show for the first time. The Scandal star will be joined by SNL music veteran Eminem who returns for his sixth appearance on the show.
I can’t wait for the inevitable Olivia Pope sketch. Should be priceless. Surprisingly, Washington is only the 9th black woman to host in the show’s 39-year history. That’s such a low number considering over 750 shows have aired. Previous hosts include Oprah Winfrey, Queen Latifah, Gabourey Sidibe, Janet Jackson and Halle Berry. I believe Cicely Tyson was the first to do so back in 1978. SNL experts, please correct me if I’m wrong.
Last night’s episode of SNL hosted by Miley Cyrus was actually quite funny! In the opening monologue, no time was wasted making fun of Miley’s twerking and her MTV VMA performance. Myley also updated people on the whereabouts of Hannah Montana… “She was murdered,” explained Miley.
The first sketch of the night was a series of celebrity impersonations by way of a faux 50 Shades of Grey screen test. They were actually pretty bang on and it was great to see some of the new cast members putting their skills to the test. Following that sketch was “Girlfriend Talk Show“, which is always hysterical.
One of my favorite sketches of the night was the “We Did Stop (The Government)” parody. “This is our house/ This is our rules / And we did stop (the government)/ Yeah, we did stop (shut it down),” Miley sings. “Can’t you see it’s we/ Who are right?/ Can’t you see it’s we/ Who ‘bout that life?” Miley played Michele Bachmann in the parody. Check it out below if you missed it – enjoy!
Miley Cyrus returns to Saturday Night Live this weekend to host for the second time. She’ll serve double duty, performing as the musical guest as well.
The “We Can’t Stop” singer appears with SNL repertory player Taran Killam in a series of promos released today, hyping up her weekend gig. In the clips, they banter back and forth regarding Cyrus’ new image, VMA performance and most importantly, why she’s always sticking out her tongue. Find out the reason below.
With a rebuilding year ahead of them, Lorne Michaels wisely tapped Tina Fey to usher in this new era. Six new cast members were added to replace departing favorites. For her opening monologue, Fey not only introduced them but also forced them to dance backup for her. Was anyone else distracted by all the bulges as the guys were thrusting in their gold lamé short shorts? In addition to kicking off the show in grand style, Fey delivered huge in several skits including the airport one and the fantastic promo for HBO’s Girls where she joins the cast as an older Albanian chick.
Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul was the surprise MVP of the night. He popped up in three segments including a hilarious faux meth commercial. Out of the newbies, Kyle Mooney, Mike O’Brien and Noel Wells impressed the most. The latter does a killer Lena Dunham impression.
On the flip side, returning cast member Cecily Strong looked a bit nervous in her new position fronting Weekend Update. Hopefully, she settles in her new gig in the coming weeks. Check out all the skits below and be sure to weigh in on which newbie you’re most excited about. Be forewarned, you’ll need a US IP to watch the clips.
With Bill Hader, Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis leaving Saturday Night Live last season and Seth Meyer’s planned midseason exit, pressure was on Lorne Michaels to recruit talented newbies to fill the void.
Entering its 39th season, the show is going through one of the biggest cast overhauls in the sketch comedy’s history. Five new faces are being added to the roster this year. The most new talent since 1995 when Will Ferrell made his debut, along with Cheri Oteri and Darrell Hammond to name a few. Get to know the quintet of new players hoping to make you laugh this season below. One of them (Beck Bennett) is a certifiable hottie. Wouldn’t mind spending some early Sunday morning time with him ;)
Saturday Night Live is bringing in the big guns to open its 39th season. Tina Fey returns to her former stomping grounds to guest host the September 28 episode. This will mark her fourth time hosting the show. Joining her as the musical guest are Arcade Fire. Coincidentally enough, it’s also their fourth appearance on the show. Find out who else is heading to SNL in the coming weeks below.
