I know, if you’re reading this closely, AND you’re familiar with my content (Sid here) then you know that I’m not a fan of KK – or and of the K’s or J’s for that matter. But, after watching some of Kim’s performance on SNL this weekend, I gotta admit….I think she (as much as she could) killed it.
When celebrities poke fun at themselves in a self-deprecating way – AND – also make fun of the controversial things people associate with them while on a HUGE platform….that’s gold. For me.
Kim started off with as all SNL host’s do…with a monologue. Obviously, 100% of the jokes were written for her and she was coached on how to deliver them…but the fact that she dealt them in the way that she did while agreeing to make jokes about things she’s probably wanted to move past for years….it was great. Dare I even say, very entertaining? LOL
Kim started off the night making fun of her mere presence on the show. “I know, I’m surprised I’m here today too. When they asked me to host, I was like, ‘You want me to host? Why? I haven’t had a movie premiere in a really long time.’ She continued in a VERY tight and on-brand pink outfit, ‘Actually, I only had that one movie come out, and no one told me it was even premiering.’ CRUSHED IT!!!!!
Kim came out and addressed the number one issue most people have with her. She’s famous for her performance in an adult film. She not only didn’t ignore it, she led the entire night with it and immediately cleared the way for what was to be a decent show. A show that actually saw the ratings spike, AND stay there for most of the show. Ratings were up 23% in most key demos, making this a very successful appearance for both KK and NBC. I’ve grabbed some of the sketches Kim did, beginning with her monologue. Run through them and hit me on socials if you’ve got the feels either way.
