We’ve been dying to see Selena Gomez host ‘SNL,’ and it looks like it may actually happen in Season 41! Justin Bieber’s ex-girlfriend will be asked to ‘host and perform on the show this year,’ HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned. Find out all the details!
Selena Gomez, 23, has a hot new single out, a new album on the way, and fans are still obsessed with her on-again/off-again relationship with Justin Bieber, so she has plenty of material to succeed as not only a host, but a performer in Season 41 of Saturday Night Live. Thankfully, NBC feels the same way because she’ll be asked to “host and perform on the show this year.”
“SNL wants to steer very young this season, and if they haven’t already set something up, they will be asking Selena to host and perform on the show this year,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
This is amazing news! Not only because we love Selena, but she has never hosted SNL before. We know — it’s hard to believe, but it’s true. Plus, the timing couldn’t be any better. Selena has a hit record out, a new album on the way, and she’s one of the most talked about celebrities of our generation. A lot of that may have to do with her relationship with Justin, but that doesn’t matter. She’s being talked about, and that means she’s doing something right.
Furthermore, Selena loved when Kate McKinnon mocked Justin’s Calvin Klein underwear campaign in Season 40, so maybe Selena will also take the opportunity to poke fun at the Biebs. We’d LOVE to see that. All in good fun, of course!
