Saturday Night Live
Megan Thee Stallion
October 15, 2022
Between the Astros clinching their place in the ALCS and Megan Thee Stallion hosting and serving as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live (on an episode whose start was threatened by the Astros game because it just went on SO LONG), Saturday was a big night for my hometown of Houston, Texas. Now, this might shock those of you in Houston, but there are people out there in this world who do not like either the Astros or Megan Thee Stallion. WHAT’S WRONG WITH THEM, AMIRIGHT? But to them I say: too bad, so sad, Saturday night was all about HustleTown.
Megan Thee Stallion is only the second female rapper to host and serve as the musical guest of Saturday Night Live after Queen Latifah had the honor back in 2004. And I have to say, Megan did Houston proud. She has so much charisma and personality as a performer that extends past her obvious musical talent. Those of us who have seen her in She-Hulk and as a judge on Legendary already knew this, and weren’t surprised at her ability to hold down a live sketch comedy show. Plus, the writers gave her a series of sketches that played to her larger-than-life persona helping her deliver a solid — if not particularly revolutionary — episode of SNL. Good job, H-Town Hottie.
