NEW YORK, NY – Jenny from the block hopped on the 6 train and hosted Saturday Night Live this past weekend!
With the Olympics close to over, SNL returned from its winter hiatus. Among its sketches was one poking fun at the “We Are the World 25 For Haiti” single, headlined by guest host Jennifer Lopez.
“Recently, the music world came together to record ‘We Are the World 2,’ a song to raise awareness of the Haiti earthquake disaster; sadly, the song itself was a disaster,” said Kenan Thompson playing the role of Quincy Jones.” He then added that the new version recruited a “sloppy mess of half-famous Brandos,” introducing “We Are the World 3: Raising Awareness of the ‘We Are the World 2’ Disaster.”
Lopez assumed the role of Rihanna and scored points for her humorous and scathing portrayal. Lopez added Rihanna’s trademark “ays” and “ella-ella-ay-ay” after every line. The rest of the SNL cast members assumed the role’s of Gwen Stefani, Adam Lambert, Willie Nelson, David Crosby, Lady Gaga, Shakira and several others.
