Megan The Stallion becomes the latest artist to do double duty Saturday Night Live, welcoming and performing as a musical guest. She joins Harry Styles, Miley Cyrus and a few others in recent years.
As she reels from a shocking burglary at her Los Angeles home, while grateful no one was hurt, she is also preparing to hopefully deliver a moment to remember. SNL episode. She’s already made a few waves with her fashion choices ahead of the live show, but she’s upping the ante in her promos for this week’s episode.
Alongside Heidi Gardner, Megan Thee Stallion ratcheted up anticipation for an episode centered around the sketch show’s “hot girls”. The first promotional joke about the show’s creative process throughout the week, with Gardner agreeing that it’s going to be a great show, “all we have to do is write it.”
In the second promo, Gardner may be crossing a line by giving herself a new “hot girl” moniker. “I’m Heidi THEE Gardner, and I’ll be there too,” she says in the promo. This doesn’t sit well with Megan telling him to let it go. “Don’t do that,” she said.
Megan Thee Stallion also appeared in another fun bit earlier in the week, alongside sophomore star Sarah Sherman. It’s very different from normal promos, with Sherman stripping down his performance in an ode to “WAP”, Megan Thee Stallion’s hit with fellow rapper Cardi B.
But for many fans, it was the style and warmth the star brought to the SNL studios this week that have generated some interest. She took a moment to show off her outfit from the promos on Instagram, modeling the sheer black outfit like she was born to do it. Fans loved it, but they might have enjoyed her SNL daytime outfit even more.
The the rapper arrived on Saturday in a pink jacket above a smaller pink undergarment, with hot pink heels. If this is a preview of what fans will see tonight, it truly is a special night. It could rival Tiffany Haddish’s white dress that she wouldn’t stop wearing during her appearance as a host. SNL airs on NBC at 11:30 p.m. ET and will air live on NBC and the next day on Peacock.
