Maya Rudolph Kills It On “Saturday Night Live,” Justin Timberlake Nails Bon Iver Impression

Watch Video

Look, I am not one of those people who is nostalgic for the good ol’ days of “Saturday Night Live,” when the Coneheads and Pat were making everyone laugh. No, I like “SNL” now. But that doesn’t mean it always cracks me up. Usually I watch the show on Sunday mornings, with my coffee and New York Post, and I smile and maybe a giggle or two pops out. But when Maya Rudolph hosted the show this weekend — featuring special guests Amy Poehler and Justin Timberlake — I cracked the hell up. 

Above, Blue Ivy Carter meets Prince, Taylor Swift, Brangelina, and Bon Iver, portrayed perfectly by Timberlake. And after the jump, more sketches I loved. Keep reading »

“Saturday Night Live” Defends Lana Del Rey With Spoof

Watch Video

Weeks after her performance on “Saturday Night Live” was, well, universally loathed, Lana Del Rey returned to the show to defend herself … sorta. Kristin Wiig actually played the pop star — whose debut album, Born To Die, was released last week ant hit number one in the U.K. — in a “Weekend Update” segment that was, this time, pitch perfect. Watch it above!

The interwebsphere is a buzz with Lana Del Rey post SNL hatred. I just thought I would do something I never do and give my opinion on it. (irony)

I have many random thoughts. First, everybody calm down. It’s a little troubling that when a young girl fails at something that we keep kicking her why she is down. I get very protective of girls, especially young performers, because they live a hard, emotionally challenging, often physically challenging life where you are constantly given reasons to be insecure and have panic attacks. I totally get the stuff about her not deserving to be there and I don’t mean to insult musicians in any way if that’s how they feel obviously, but this is an opportunity to show us how hard being a performer is so maybe they can all be cut some slack. Flack?  I think we take our performers for granted. It’s super fucking hard to entertain people and it takes a lot of work. 

– Whitney Cummings took to her Tumblr on Thursday to defend Lana Del Rey’s right to be a human being who performed poorly on live TV for three whole minutes. Quel horreur! Whitney’s spot-on assessment about how the pile-on is a mix of jealousy and pretty-girl-hatred (which Whit knows a thing or two about), after the jump: Keep reading »

Did you catch Jimmy Fallon hosting “Saturday Night Live” this weekend? I’m not the hugest Jimmy fan, but I thought he did a great job hosting — after all, he was a fulltime cast member for years. And he didn’t do it alone! It was a full blown reunion of past cast members, including Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who showed up with Jimmy to challenge Seth to a joke-off. Clip above!
