Lady Gaga's Saturday Night Live Promos: Wig Lamps, Meat Watches and…a Case of the Voms?

Lady Gaga is pulling double duty as host and musical guest on this week’s Saturday Night Live — but while we know the “Bad Romance” singer can be outrageous, the question remains — “Can she be funny?”

The following set of promo videos is, alas, inconclusive — mostly because the concepts (all co-starring Kenan Thompson) are as lukewarm as hour-old tea.

There’s Thompson rocking a meat watch, there’s the duo talking in heightened “thee-ay-ter” voices, there’s the pop star explaining “Lady Gaga” isn’t her real name — and Thompson responding with mock outrage. I won’t spoil the punch line in the promo centered around Tinkerbell living for the applause, as long as you don’t get your hopes too high.

    Don’t know if Gaga is going to topped Miley this time around.

  2. Rose says:

    Good god that is terrible. And when will they finally ask Connie Britton to host?! JFC

  3. murley says:

    She was game and seemed comfortable and natural. I think she will do well hosting. The question is, will she be given anything to work with?

  4. erin says:

    I have never skipped an episode of SNL due to not liking the host, but I don’t think I can watch this week. She is just so unappealing and unattractive, I can’t watch.

  5. Scarlett says:

    C’mon people, she’s been pretty great every time she appeared as musical guest and was also included in skits… she seems to be a natural. I’m hoping for a good show.
