Katy Perry returned to Saturday Night Live over the weekend to promote her upcoming album, Prism. For her first performance of the night, a rendition of the single “Roar,” Perry took on a jungle theme by wearing a leopard print dress while her band wore animal costumes and played on a stage covered with tropical foliage. For her second song, Perry offered the new single “Walking on Air” on a sleek, white stage with backup dancers and elaborate lighting. Prism will hit stores on October 22.
If you fell into a deep sleep for over 24 hours and somehow missed it, you should know that Miley Cyrus‘ highly-anticipated album, Bangerz, was released yesterday. Last night was the official record signing and release party, a.k.a. 2 opportunities for Miley to show off dem abs.
Her first look featured a number of her fave things: white on white, a crop top, T.U.K Creepers, and pasties. The pasties were not merely circles like she wore a few weeks ago, but giant stars. It is her release, after all: special occasions call for special pasties. She also has on the diamond-encrusted chain link necklace she wore on SNL this weekend because, LBR, if you had that necklace, you’d wear it to everything too. Oh, also, because yesterday was, weather-wise, the first real day of fall in NYC, Miles swapped her preferred hotpants and tanktops for distressed white jeans and a long-sleeve shirt. The sheerness probably isn’t helping with the insulation, but how else would everyone know she’s upgraded her pasty game?
For her release party at The General in NYC, where there were performers from Beacher’s Madhouse in LA, X-rated balloon artists, and dancers in elephant and bear costumes (duh), Miley changed into a pink, satin bra and matching high-waisted miniskirt. It gets hot in the club, y’all, she can’t be wearing long pants and long sleeves! We haven’t seen this much color on Miley since she wore an altered Jordan jersey in the ’23’ video. First long pants, now color, what’s next, an full-length shirt?
Lady Gaga may be getting plenty of ‘Applause’ of her own this fall. TVLine.comreports exclusively that the ‘Born This Way’ singer may be returning for her third visit to NBC’s Saturday Night Live to serve as both musical guest and host.
A representative for the network declined to comment on the report, maintaining that the line-up for the new season of SNL is “still being finalized.”
Lady Gaga has previously appeared as the show’s musical guest in 2009 and 2011. On both visits she appeared in several sketches alongside hosts Ryan Reynolds and Justin Timberlake.
Lady Gaga performed her new single, ‘Applause’ for the first time ever LIVE on the 2013 “MTV Video Music Awards” stage from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on August 25.
From her powerful and bloody rendition of “Paparazzi” to the gender bending, adrenaline fueled version of “You and I,” Lady Gaga is the mastermind behind some of the most memorable VMA performances in recent years.
As one of the most talked about and innovative artists of this generation, Lady Gaga has left an indelible mark on the “MTV Video Music Awards” by winning an astounding 13 Moonmen since 2009, including “Best New Artist,” “Video of the Year” for “Bad Romance” as well as “Best Video with a Message” for “Born This Way.”
Lindsay Lohan made a triumphant return to Saturday Night Live as she poked fun at her drug problems and run-ins with the law.
In the opening monologue, castmembers covertly tried to determine whether the Mean Girls star was under the influence. Keenan Thompson even shined a flashlight in her eyes to see if she was high.
Former SNL regular Jimmy Fallon then told Lohan, “Everybody makes mistakes but that doesn’t mean you can’t shake them off. You can do this – but if for any reason you can’t, Jon Hamm’s on standby as back-up host,” before pointing out the Mad Men star in the audience.
Kristen Wiig also pulled Lohan in for a reassuring embrace, which turned into a full-body frisking – but she covered it up by insisting, “I’m a lesbian now!” to which the host quipped, “Been there, done that.”
Further poking fun at her reputation, Lohan headed behind bars in another sketch to scare young delinquents straight by telling them that petty theft is a path that ends “in Malibu in rehab”.
The actress was sentenced to 120 hours of community service and counseling sessions following a necklace theft conviction in early 2011, when she was already on probation for a 2007 DUI incident.
Lohan, who has hosted SNL three times before, previously said she hopes the TV appearance will help to restore her professional reputation, which nosedived after regular run-ins with the law and a series of stints in jail and rehab.
Miley Cyrus does her best Justin Bieber impression on The Miley Cyrus Show during Saturday Night Live’s March 5 episode.
The 18-year-old starlet was pretty spot-on with her hair flicks, lip biting, and chin holding.
“It’s all about the crotch grabbing, though,” Miley told Just Jared after the taping. “I’ve watched Justin’s talk show appearances, so I knew how to imitate him.”
Good job, Miley! It was… pretty cool.
