Megan Thee Stallion had a busy night this past Saturday (October 15) when she hosted and performed on NBC’s Saturday Night Live. Her double-duty appearance was promoted last week with two skits: a sketch featuring a nude Sarah Squirm and a more traditional, outtakes-style promo reel with Heidi Gardner.
In her opening monologue, she took some time to revel in her recent accomplishments, which include the obvious ones — twerking, “being one of the hottest emcees in the game right now, period!” — among many other, lesser-known talents. During the three-minute speech, she showed off her British accent (in order to demand a role on Netflix’s Bridgerton), her recent degree in health administration, and her new website, BadBitchesHaveBadDaysToo.com, which links to several therapy platforms and crisis hotlines below the official visualizer for Meg’s recent mental health anthem “Anxiety.”
In addition to her bookending monologue and musical performances, Meg showed off her acting ability in seven sketches Saturday night. Below, watch her play a nurse at Hot Girl Hospital, a +1 at an awkward reunion of old friends, a daughter showing off her rustic new home to her father (Keenan Thompson), a guest on an Ego Nwodim-hosted show called Girl Talk, a fitness instructor, a single woman in a public service announcement about single women getting chilly in the winter, and an honors physics student.
Meg’s show-carrying performance was even more impressive considering her Los Angeles home had been reportedly robbed of goods worth hundreds of thousands of dollars just two days earlier. On Friday, she tweeted that she’d be taking some much-needed time off in the near future. “Hotties im really sorry, she wrote, “but after SNL I really gotta take a break I’m so tired, physically and emotionally.”
