Judging by the first promos to be released for Taylor Swift’s hosting gig on Saturday Night Live this weekend, there will be more riffs on Kanye than a South Park episode:

We know Taylor can take a good prank at her own expense; but will this weekend’s episode devolve into one long ‘Ye rant? Despite bloggy rumors, neither the singer’s publicist nor reps for the show itself would confirm whether West will actually make a surprise appearance—though SNL did say more promos would be released tomorrow evening.

Swift talked to MTV about the taping today, saying, “I want to look nothing like myself. I told all the writers, ‘Don’t count anything out.’ I want to go completely, 100 percent in. I don’t want to be halfway involved. Just because I have a lot of things to do as far as being musical guest and host doesn’t mean I don’t want to live up to my full hosting demands.”

We can haz Penelope skit? Also, no painful Madonna/Gaga-style improvs, por favor. But seriously, how does this promo bode for the upcoming show? And what are you expecting from Taylor, musical-guest and host-wise?
