Lady Gaga hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend, and it was everything that we’d hoped it would be … that is to say, a little weird, funny and occasionally magnificent.
Here are our favorite highlights.
1. Waking Up with Kimye
We’re not sure why it took so long for someone to make a joke about Kanye West getting upset at an Apple Store “Genius” for calling dibs on that term, but it finally happened Saturday. And the writers may have taken a passive aggressive potshot at Gaga, 27, whose character said that “people who try too hard with their outfits are maybe hiding something.” Or maybe that was referencing West’s fiancée, Kim Kardashian. What do you think?
2. Gaga Performs with R. Kelly
Yes. This happened. And while it’s not going to light up too many dashboards in a post Miley-at-the-VMAs world, Gaga and Kelly certainly got our tongues wagging with their performance of “Do What U Want.”
3. Fourth Grade Talent Show
Gaga’s native upstate New York accent gets brought out in this skit about a pair of overzealous parents coaching their daughter through a talent-show performance that gradually gets a little out of control.
