Jennifer Lopez did a Saturday Night Live takeover, on the February 27, 2010, episode. She was the host, and the musical guest. I don’t know why she was frontin’ like she still had a musical career, when we all know she was ditched by her label (I don’t believe her protests that rumours were untrue, and it was a mutual split). She did a monologue, a few skits, and even a send-up of a fellow singer. It was a rather light mocking. But since she was mocking someone with an actual career, this looked ever-so-slightly passive aggressive and even catty.
Lopez played herself, when she mocked Rihanna’s lack of vocals. Homegirl is no (pre-crack) Whitney Houston, but at least she can aim and actually hit the Billboard 100 like she means it. As part of an ensemble cast singing a We Are The World parody, Lopez dresses and sings as the Alien Princess. Click to play.
