So. Much. Shade. Miley Cyrus kicked off the 41st season of ‘Saturday Night Live’ with a bang on Oct. 3 by dissing a ton of people, including Drake, Meek Mill, Ariana Grande, Kim Davis, Rick Santorum, and more. Very few people were spared during her opening monologue.
Miley Cyrus, 22, just threw some major shade at a number of people who she felt made the summer of 2015 what it came to be. But instead of celebrating them on the Oct. 3 season premiere of Saturday Night Live, she said they’d be people we’ll never talk about again. So who did she throw shade at by pretty much saying they’re no longer relevant? Ariana Grande, Drake, Meek Mill, Kim Davis, Rick Santorum, Josh Duggar, etc.
After seemingly admitting to being high during her opening monologue on SNL — Miley said she was on a personal 7-second delay — she sang a song, commemorating a number of people who made the summer of 2015 what it came to be. And in that moment, Miley chose to say “goodbye” to those people because according to her, we’ll never talk about them again. Ouch!
As you’ll recall from this past summer, Ariana Grande licked a donut, Drake and Meek Mill got into a heated feud with each other, Kim Davis was arrested after refusing to sign gay marriage licenses, Josh Duggar admitted to cheating on his wife, and so much more. While we’d certainly like to forget some of those people (ie. Kim Davis), it’s a bit harsh for Miley to insinuate that Ariana, Drake and Meek Mill are no longer relevant.
With Miley, fans could only expect the unexpected. In promos for her SNL appearance, she suggested she would host and perform without wearing clothes. That’s no surprise. Miley and nudity tend to go hand in hand, as she even flashed her boob during her last hosting gig at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards.
Later in the evening, Miley performed “Karen Don’t Be Sad,” watched as Hillary Clinton mocked Donald Trump, and appeared in a number of other hilarious skits. Taylor Swift even got dissed in a skit, but Miley didn’t appear in it.
The season premiere marks the third time Miley has hosted SNL. Her first appearance on the long-running sketch comedy show happened in March 2011. She came back in Oct. 2013, where she performed “Wrecking Ball” and “We Can’t Stop.”
