Taylor Swift will host Saturday Night Live on Nov. 7, and it doesn’t take a comic genius to guess that her opening monologue will be interrupted. The question is: After a few of the cast members — or perhaps popular recurring hosts like Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin? — take their shots at her, will Kanye West actually pop up? Good PR move if they’ve kissed and made up. Or like press.
Swift’s said producers asked her over the summer if she’d like to host, and she’s been thinking of sketches ever since. I’m looking forward to seeing what she and the writers come up with: If you follow her on Twitter (“Getting photobombed by Daniel Craig = Priceless”), watch her MySpace videos (sample below), or remember her acting on SNL last January, or that “Thug Story” rap video from June’s CMT Music Awards, you know she’s got a good sense of humor and a willingness to “go there.”
Any sketch ideas you’d like to pitch her? I’d love to see a Celebrity Rehab-like sketch for headbangers. The girl is a big fan of the hair toss, and it’s got to stop. I’m also gonna need a Kellie Pickler cameo (they’re BFFs).
