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.

  • 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?

    • Absolutely agree. Stefani is a natural at performing.

      • She tends to be more Stefani when she’s on SNL and home in NYC. She’ll do fine I’m sure. Drop the character and just be herself.

  • 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.

  • 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.
