Halsey Hosts an Average ‘Saturday Night Live’ That Doesn’t Rely on the Usual Tropes

This weekend brought one of those rare instances where the host of Saturday Night Live also doubles as musical guest. Chart-topping singer Halsey joined the ranks of Justin Timberlake, Paul Simon, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus and more with her hosting debut this weekend, where she also performed two songs. Unfortunately, the show around her didn’t really let her break out too much as a commendable comedic presence, but the episode wasn’t entirely a wash either. So let’s dive into the ...

Incredibad Turns 10

Hip-hop wise, 2009 was a big year for the Bar Mitzvah dance floor. We were gifted Sean Kingston's "Fire Burning," 3OH!3's "DONTTRUSTME," and, of course, the Black Eyed Peas' "I Gotta Feeling." Big, cartoonish, easily-danceable pop-rap hits ruled the airwaves. But few songs were bigger and more cartoonish than the Lonely Island's iconic, T-Pain-assisted single … More »

Rachel Brosnahan Fits in Perfectly in the First ‘Saturday Night Live’ of 2019

Rachel Brosnahan has found success pretending to be a comedian on the hit Amazon series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (which is worth watching right this very minute if you haven’t already).
