This weekend, Lizzo made her debut as a host on Saturday Night Live and a return performance as the night’s musical guest, pulling double duty. Of course, she knocked her opening monologue out of the park. The musical artist has a sense of humor about herself in interviews and on social media, and she brought that energy to the show immediately.
“My name is Lizzo and, yes, I’m shocked I have clothes on too,” she joked after a warm reception from the audience. “I’m really excited. Tonight, we’re going to make history! That’s right, we’re going to break the record for the amount of time ‘b-tch’ is said on live TV!”
She then decided to “address some rumors” she’s heard about herself online, and why it made her a bit nervous to host.
“I read a lot online that I’m dating every little white boy in Hollywood,” Lizzo said. “They think I’m collecting members of one direction like infinity stones. I even heard a rumor that I’m pregnant with Chris Evans’ baby. I have no idea where that one started.”
But then she added, “It could be the TikTok where I said, ‘I am pregnant with Chris Evans’ baby.’ It’s called manifesting, okay?”

Lizzo explained a bit more about what it was like to be nervous hosting an episode of Saturday Night Live.
“I know it’s shocking that I’m nervous because I’m the one who said, ‘I just took a DNA test, turns out I’m 100% that b-tch,’” Lizzo explained. “Well, to be completely honest, I’m really like 50 percent ‘that b-tch,’ 10 percent ‘boss b-tch,’ and 40 percent ‘flute playing, band nerd b-tch.’”
She added, “But I’m thrilled to be hosting this particular episode, especially because I do love tonight’s musical guest: Me!”
Definitely seems like she came around.
