It’s a good thing Gaga got the whole puking thing out of the way during her funny ‘SNL’ promo. The ‘Applause’ singer will tackle both hosting and performing for the upcoming Nov. 16 episode, and given the success of Miley Cyrus’ recent jaunt, Gaga has a lot to live up to.
“Sometimes you just gotta let it out,” Lady Gaga, 27, says to Kenan Thompson after she “throws up” in her Saturday Night Live promo. Gaga, who will take on hosting duties for the first time ever this weekend, mocks everything from that infamous meat dress to her recent weight issues in the promo, which features Gaga wearing everything that was on sale at Ricky’s Costumes the day after Halloween. Check out the promo below!
Gaga’s SNL Promos: Making Light of Serious Issues
Gaga’s weight gain (and subsequent loss) led to a ton of nasty headlines last year, but Gaga makes light of the situation in one of her bits with Kenan. “No Kenan, I’m over here,” she says, as Kenan chats up a wig-clad lamp that me mistakes for Gaga. (Get it? Because Gaga was super skinny last time she appeared on SNL with Justin Timberlake in 2011?)
They also do a silly bit about Tinkerbell needing Gaga’s applause to live, as well as a throwback to that meat dress that honestly needs to be retired from the pop culture lexicon at this point. The puking incident happens near the end, so make sure you stick around for the whole thing.
How Will She Do?
Gaga starred in a skit with Justin back in 2011, and for being the second-billed star in said skit she did a pretty decent job bringing the laughs. We were skeptical going in to Miley’s hosting debut, but given that popster’s surprise success, we’ll give Gaga the benefit of the doubt and hope for a great show.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Will you tune in for some Gaga?
