Video: Katy Perry Gets Old-Timey To Promote Her ‘SNL’ Hosting Gig

katy Perry hosting snl promoThis weekend, on Dec. 10, Katy Perry will follow in her funnyman husband’s steps and take the SNL stage to host the sketch show. And while we know her well for her colorful pop songs, she won’t be pulling double duty – pop star Robyn will handle the musical portion of the evening.

For now, we’ve got these promos that feature Perry alongside Kenan Thompson and they’re a little…drab. But at least Perry knows she’s not really known for her acting talents. You’ve got to love a superstar who’s okay with self-depreciation.

SNL with Katy Perry airs this Saturday at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
