WATCH: Kanye West Is Really Not Impressed in This New ‘SNL’ Promo
Kanye West is having the time of his life…NOT.
The rapper looks so unimpressed in Saturday Night Live’s new promo that’s it’s actually laughable and glorious at the same time. In a new teaser released on Friday (Feb. 12, 2016), he joins host Melissa McCarthy and SNL cast member Taran Killam on stage looking very excited to be there.
“Melissa and Kanye, biggest show over!” Killam says before McCarthy humbly tells him to “stop.” West, however, doesn’t say a word and just blankly stares at the camera for the entire 23 seconds. Later when the Ghostbusters actress turns to him for a response to her joke, Kim Kardashian’s husband just awkwardly nods and shrugs…a little.
After making headlines all week for his controversial lyrics about Taylor Swift and his Yeezy Season 3 show, maybe he’s just tired of talking. West is scheduled to perform songs from his new album, The Life of Pablo, but we’re just wondering whether he’ll sing “Famous” or not. While we doubt that he’ll perform in a skit, we’re kinda hoping he will just for kicks.
Saturday Night Live airs tonight at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT on NBC. Watch the incredibly awkward teaser above — you’ll laugh at how uncomfortable he looks.
