Exclusive: Lady Gaga Returning to Saturday Night Live as Musical Guest… and Host?
Lady Gaga was apparently born to appear on Saturday Night Live every two years.
Mother Monster will make her third visit to Studio 8H this fall, and rumor has it she may do double duty as host and musical guest, TVLine has learned exclusively.

An NBC rep declined to comment, maintaining that SNL‘s fall lineup is still being finalized.
Gaga previously served as musical guest in 2009 and 2011, but on both occasions she acted in several sketches alongside respective hosts Ryan Reynolds and Justin Timberlake (including a memorable Deep House Dish skit that pitted her against Madonna).
Gaga is currently in the throes of a major PR push ahead of the Nov. 11 release of her new album ARTPOP. The disc’s first single, “Applause,” currently sits at No. 4 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart.
