Just in Time for the Holidays: Last Night’s SNL with Katy Perry

Katy Perry teamed with Andy Samberg (and Matt Damon! And Val Kilmer! And even Abraham Lincoln!) for last night’s awesome SNLDigital Short.” I didn’t LOL or anything, but Katy Perry’s facial expressions slay me. And! Val Kilmer, singing! How I’ve missed you, Val.

Anyway. The song is about meth addiction and time-travel, and I love it. Then again, I almost always laugh at jokes about meth. I think drug references are hilarious. That isn’t weird, though, right? Everybody loves those Harold and Kumar movies.

Well, It Wasn’t The Best Show, But…

Late last week I was talking up how well I thought Gabourey Sidibe’s turn at hosting SNL would go, but uh… She was just alright. This Digital Short (consistently one of the high points of the show) Cherry Battle was pretty funny, but Gabby still messed up a few of her lines. Actually, that was consistently her problem on the show. Good improvisational skills are important when you’re hosting the most fast-paced sketch show in the game.

Also a disappointment? MGMT. They weren’t exactly dropping Ke$ha-style suck bombs, but they were definitely “eh” at best.

Next up over at Saturday Night Live is Betty White with musical guest Jay-Z. There’s no question that that will make up for all this mess.
