Taylor Swift: Saturday Night Live's New Host!

Taylor Swift will host Saturday Night Live on November 7.

“I’ve been thinking about skit ideas for a long time,” the 19-year-old country cutie tells The Associated Press. “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.” (She would be referring to Kanye West ruining her VMAs win.)

Taylor added, “I love being around people who I feel have a different kind of creative genius. And the funny genius is definitely a fascinating one to be around.”

Will be collaborate with SNL regular Andy Samberg on a digital short music video? Most likely.

Taylor shared, “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.”

In other news, Taylor will perform on Dancing With the Stars on Tuesday, Oct. 27.

    you cant sing live

  • Rhonda

    I don’t think I’d even want to be on that loser show anymore! she should be on “glee” that would be cool.

  • Lowest denominator

    “Funny GENIUS?”
    Has she actually WATCHED SNL lately?

  • Rhonda

    Dear Taylor,

    there aren’t any creative genius on that show sweetie? you’d be better off writing your own stuff.

  • marie

    what happened to the hosts of SNL being talented ACTORS and ACTRESSES???
    i’m so sick and tired of singers trying to act and vise versa

  • mailey

    it’s true, she can’t sing live. and she has no vocal range whatsoever.

    she’s not really special. she’s skinny. she’s blonde. lots of those.

    however, she writes about what every teenage girl can relate to and country loves squeeky clean. so there u have it.

    I’m so tired of hearing Taylor Swift. Her music is crap. Shes is an annoying celebrity , she even looks annoying. Every time I hear her song on the radio it makes me so annoyed I just want to shoot my radio. Taylor make better songs and learn to do your makeup better biotch.

  • madi

    Hmm.. I just don’t think Taylor Swift and SNL go together. Can’t see her being that funny.

  • lucy

    taylor is a nice girl but it’s true she can’t sing live…

  • lauren

    eh i dont like her so much

  • Shakaiya

    I don’t care for her.

  • Jane

    Love Taylor. Love SNL. Very, very happy to hear that she’ll be hosting. I’m definitely looking forward to the episode. And to maybe hate on SNL a little bit now, (albeit a bit tired) is slightly reasonable. But folks. Taylor’s a kid. She’s 19. “An annoying celebrity?” She was the top selling artist last year. She’s doing something right. And, yes, her music tends to be geared toward the younger set so if you’re over thirty and “annoyed” by her, maybe get a life? Or an iPod so you don’t risk hearing her “crap.”

    Ridiculous.

  • Rhonda

    hope her musical guest isn’t Kanye West!

    I just heard she’s up for 6 AMA awards, someone is enjoying her music

    ewwwwwwww! What is with this girl?

    Granny Grass picked up two sacks of Oreos at Al’s Thursday, “Milk’s Favorite Cookie”. They were on special for 2 bucks each. So I was just wondering, is that some bald guy’s head in the above sexy pic, or is that her knee?

    Sure am looking forward to her on SNL…

  • Nay

    Lame!

  • Denise

    Why is she holding up a cookie???

  • http://www.gsr-twn.blogspot.com Gregory

    Denise at 6:02 am,

    Because that’s the way the cookie crumbles…

  • Mikey

    So many haters coming out of the woods here. I really think when things get posted like this if you are not a fan then why do you read them… What a waste of valuable time.

    You would never see me looking up stuff on Kanye West or Jay Z.. why.. because I don’t care about them enough to waste time posting stupid comments about the medocre performances they call COOL ;) … Anyway.. I hope you do great Taylor.. Later!!!

  • peetee

    Okay, you gotta admit that monologue song a.k.a LA-LA-LA was really adorable, wouldn’t be any better if Taylor swift is not the one who sang that song!

    as for the anti-fans who say its booring… I say, “are you kidding me? You should open your eye balls a little bit and turn-on your sense of humor even once”

    All the juiciest info plus the firelight video: Twilight Spoof: http://bit.ly/taylor-swift-on-SNL-monologue-song-plus-firelight-video

    Never seen Swift as a vampire… LOL..peace out!

  • Annika

    Yeah, jesus christ, what a bunch of hateful, ignorant idiots. She wrote that monologue, which was clever and funny and I think it’s awesome. Also, what makes some of you guys think you can criticize when you can’t even spell or include proper punctuation?
