The perplexing truth about Kim Kardashian news is revealed below.
She is uncharismatic, zipped-up, and inflexible as a performer—as a presence in the room, even. Every action has a mechanical component. She reads cue cards like legal books and listens by nodding vaguely while looking away from her scene partner. However, as her Saturday Night Live stint progressed, I grew to like the woman more and more. The dedication with which this woman works is wonderful, even inspirational. She appeared in practically every sketch, demonstrating her commitment to the task. And, by God, she’s a wonderful sport, telling the writing staff to go ahead and take every shot they could.
Kardashian West’s monologue was a masterful display of high-quality burns.
She hammered the reality of her sex tape, her venal mother manager, Kris; “my perfect butt;” her sisters (who take her photo as a reference to their plastic doctors); her mother’s gold-digging lover; her father’s renowned client, O.J. Simpson; Caitlin Jenner. It was like a wedding DJ spinning the ideal obvious hits for inebriated wedding guests looking to dance.
Kardashian West tried to modulate her voice and throw in a hand gesture every now and then, and you could tell she’d been instructed to stop the audience laughing in her delivery. It was very clever of her to conclude by informing the audience that what she admires about herself is that she is real, and that she recognizes the genuine honor of being present. This felt like the aesthetic equivalent of a couch potato preparing for a marathon: someone who doesn’t dream of greatness, but rather of achievement. The woman accomplished what no one thought she could and avoided embarrassment as a result of her visible efforts. I found myself cheering her on.
“The People’s Kourt” gave her the chance to mock her sister Kourtney’s lip curl
while presiding over a trial as an irritated judge. I really wish Kardashian West had been able to go deeper into Kourtney’s draining distaste of everything in her presence, and that the wigs department had come up with a different choice. (It’s worth noting that Khloe Kardashian was present last night, taking part in two routines, although Kourtney was absent, presumably because comedy is tedious and draining.)
Kris Jenner, a much tougher performer than her daughter, was suing Kylie for allegedly costing the brand money by failing to spit out her new kid sooner. Travis Barker, of Mikey Day, showed up to mac the good judge. Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox (who looked exactly like Pete Davidson and Chloe Fineman) panted on each other while sleeping.I was certain we’d have a Kanye West glimpse, however melancholy and via sunglasses, but Chris Redd pulled off a nice, ludicrous turn.
“The Dream Guy” had all the makings of a terrific sketch—a pool of love partners that included John Cena, Chris Rock, Chace Crawford, and Tyler Cameron from The Bachelorette—but Kardashian West struggled to push her performance past solid line readings. Even at the top of the sketch — “I had a wonderful connection with one of my producers… Do you accept this token, Amy S.? — Kardashian West seemed disconnected from the material. Kardashian West appeared to be mildly breaking when Amy Schumer replied, “With both of my holes.” Even it felt scripted, as if her publicist had instructed her that viewers enjoy a good break and that she should pretend she’d never fight back laughing through quivering lips.
who plays zeros who think they’re tens, was the true star of the sketch. I’d like to see more of him in sketches this season because he’s such a big dog. He has the potential to be the season MVP.
With her second song, “Darling,” Halsey had a lovely performance, with Lindsey Buckingham joining her on stage. Witchy woman, to be sure. Now there’s someone charismatic, with the ability to pulsate with both joy and darkness. Kardashian West appears to be completely accepting of the reality that she isn’t as talented as Halsey and will never be able to dominate a stage like her idol. However, the woman works extremely hard and deserves to be respected. Last night, she did a good job at work that wasn’t her strong suit. Mama gave it her all.
Lindsey Buckingham joined Halsey on stage for her second song, “Darling.” Indeed, she’s a witch. Now there’s a charismatic figure who pulsates with both joy and darkness. Kardashian West seems to understand that she isn’t as talented as Halsey and will never be able to dominate a stage like her idol. The lady, on the other hand, works extremely hard and deserves to be respected. Last night, she did an excellent job at work that was not her strong suit. Mama had made an attempt.
