Lizzo both hosted and perform on “Saturday Night Live” in an episode that started with outrageous Easter messages from politicians and celebrities.
“A Message From the Easter Bunny” featured impersonations of Britney Spears, Jared Leto disguised as Jesus Christ, Elon Musk and Donald Trump.
Singer and rapper Lizzo drew big applause in her monologue by reflecting on the arc of her rags-to-riches career.
She said, “At every show I tell my audience the same thing and I’ll tell you too: I love you, you are beautiful and you can do anything. I am proof of that. I used to live in my car and now I’m hosting Saturday Night Live."
Lizzo referenced her infamous back-and-forth with Chris Evans last year, which started with an alleged drunk DM and led to fan pics of what a baby between the two of them would look like.
On SNL she joked, “I even heard a rumor that I’m pregnant with Chris Evans‘ baby. I have no idea where that one started.”
“It could be the TikTok where I said, ‘I am pregnant with Chris Evans’ baby.' It’s called manifesting, OK!?”
Kenan Thompson hosted a trivia game show called “Guess That” where Lizzo played an uncooperative contestant who antagonized Thompson until rival competitors Redd and Ego Nwodim also turned on him.
A skit set in an Interscope Records circa 2008 gave viewers a look into the Black Eyed Peas’ creative process as they wrote nonsensical lyrics to “Boom Boom Pow,” “Let’s Get It Started” and “I Gotta Feeling” under the guidance of A&R reps Lizzo and Aidy Bryant.
In another skit Lizzo brought a first date (Mikey Day) home to the house she shared with her grandpa, Six Flags mascot Mr. Six (Chloe Fineman).
It was eventually revealed that the house was full of elderly people in suits and bowties that liked to dance to Vengaboys’ “We Like to Party.”
