Swift to host SNL in November
Thursday, October 15, 2009
– Taylor Swift will host "Saturday Night Live" on Nov. 7, she told Associated Press today.
Swift said she has "been thinking about skit ideas for a long time. There are definitely some hilarious things that have happened to me over the past couple of months that I think will be pretty substantial skits."
Could the interruption of her speech at the Video Music Association awards by Kanye West be among them?
Swift said the chance to host the show was "mind-blowing." Producers asked her during the summer to host the show, but she had to keep it a secret. Swift was a musical guest on the program in January. She will also perform in November.
"I love being around people who I feel have a different kind of creative genius," said Swift. "And the funny genius is definitely a fascinating one to be around."
Swift said she hoped to collaborate with cast member Andy Samberg on a digital short music video. "Of course I've been such a fan for a long time, but I've gone back and re-watched everything over the past couple of months and digital shorts would be so much fun to do, because they've been done so well. Andy Samberg is hilarious."
Swift also will perform on "Dancing With the Stars" on Oct. 27.
