    SNL: The Next Generation. Make it so.

  2. Amanda says:

    I want Degrassi jokes, and I want them now.

  3. Babybop says:

    Considering how funny he was in that “A Brief Interview With Drake” sketch last year, I’m alright with this.

  4. Duboahj says:

    Drake eh? Well, its good to see them start to feature women of diversity. Good choice Lorne, sorry that it took you so long.

  5. Filll says:

    Well, as long as he doesn’t sing.

      He hasn’t heard of you either. The good news is he’s rich and doesn’t have to care.

        Oh yay, a celebrity worshipper has put me in my place. If this guy counts as a celebrity since I honestly don’t know any of his music by name. Not a big rap fan. Anyway, some nobody that this guy wouldn’t piss on if he was on fire feels the need to defend him to someone who has literally never heard of him. Seriously pathetic.

        And Beyonce regularly shops at Walmart.
