Lizzo played double duty on last night’s Saturday Night Live as the host and musical guest making it her first appearance on the late-night comedy show.
The singer reflected on her past in her opening monologue, “At every show, I tell my audience the same thing and I’ll tell you too: I love you, you are beautiful and you can do anything. I am proof of that. I used to live in my car and now I’m hosting Saturday Night Live,” she said to rousing applause.
Later in her monologue, she addressed her TikTok about being pregnant with actor Chris Evans’ baby.
“It could have been the TikTok I did where I said, ‘I’m pregnant with Chris Evans’ baby.’ ” she laughed as she called herself out on the rumor. “It’s called manifesting.”
The “Truth Hurts” songstress performed in several skits including a trivia game show called “Guess That” hosted by Kenan Thompson, later she played a horny zookeeper in the “Please Don’t Destroy Comedy” sketch, and an A&R rep for Interscope Records circa 2008 for the Black Eyed Peas as they pitched “Boom Boom Pow,” “Let’s Get It Started” and “I Gotta Feeling.”
As the musical guest, she performed her newest song “About Damn Time” and debuted the track “Special” which shares the title with her upcoming album set to be released July 15.
