Kanye West to (awkwardly?) guest on 'Saturday Night Live'

Posted on

Funny that West agreed to make an appearance on the show he so blatantly dissed (“F— SNL and the whole cast”) in his song “Power.” (The variety show poked fun at the rapper after his memorable interruption at the 2009 Video Music Awards — West wasn’t too happy about it. Hence the choice language in the song.)

I can only imagine the possible shenanigans of mixing West with live TV. That said, do you think he’ll be down with whatever SNL throws his way? Or will he provide us with the next “Kanye said WHAT?” post on EW.com?
