the end is near

Pope Francis, Kim Davis Join Miley Cyrus And Other Controversial Newsmakers For SNL Opener

mileyjpgAs pansexual pop star Miley Cyrus opened the 41st season of NBC’s Saturday Night Live with a rendition of the standard “My Way,” an array of the past summer’s most controversial — and in some cases, widely-despised — figures joined her onstage to hopefully bid adieu not only to summer but to headlining news stories. Among them are such trifles as the beef between rappers Drake and Meek Mill, Ariana Grande’s “Donutgate,” and Lenny Kravtz’ wardrobe malfunction to the more perplexing like transracial poster girl Rachel Dolezal (where’s she been, btw?) to the deadly serious such as Walter Palmer, the big game-hunting dentist, as well as Pope Francis and his antigay pal Kim Davis. As much as we wish it weren’t true, our intuition tells us we haven’t heard the end of those last two.

Watch these folks take what we hope are their final bows below.

    thought she had a job is she on holiday has she been put on permanent leave if neither of these how come she is not at work earning the $80 thousand a year she is picking up

  • Graveetas Chan

    Jared/Josh one had me in stitches

  • Glücklich

    Miley’s right. I’d already totally forgotten about the Dolezal thing.

  • Brian Morris

    Stop giving this Bitch any publicity good or bad. So sick of hearing of her and seeing her ugly face

  • Jon Mackey

    Kinda wished Chris Farley was still alive too play as Kim Davis.

  • martinbakman

    SNL captured the Kim Davis EGO nicely.

    I do agree. That hillbilly, X-tian ho can go away now.

  • Keith Perdue

    No to Kim Davis getting more of her dope…er…uh…PUBLICITY…

  • Brian

    Miley Cyrus and Kim Davis are both over-exposed celebrities. Let’s not give them more exposure.

  • bicurious

    I’m sorry, but Rachel Dolezal doesn’t belong with those other people at all. That Miley Cyrus and the GAYS of all people would think it is appropriate to include her in this is disappointing to me. Rachel Dolezal didn’t hurt anyone. All she did is become the person she wants to be, and in rather spectacular style if you ask me. I think Cryus and any Gay should be on the side of anyone who is brave enough to be who they want to be despite what society says.

    This was so fantastic. We have such a weird Country. Thank you Miley Cyrus and SNL for a great laugh. The Pharmacy kid with the serial killer eyes and the lion killer were wonderful. The extra length on St. Kim’s hair, so fun. Seeing the Pope squirm away from her was killer.

    This was so fantastic fantastic. We have such a weird Country. Thank you M.C. and SNL for a great laugh. The Pharm kid with the dead eyes and the lion snuffer were wonderful. The extra length on St. Kim and seeing Frankie squirm away from her was so right on. (my comment got moderated, so I’m reconfiguring sentences, so I’m supposing “K1LLer good” is unacceptable?) Thanks for the laugh.

  • Arcamenel

    @bicurious: She didn’t become anything but a damn laughing stock. She isn’t nor will she ever be black.

  • Roy Lewis

    Love it!

  • NJjoe

    I missed the episode but will catch it when it reruns.

  • Glücklich

    She may not have hurt any *person* but her ridiculous charade didn’t do the NAACP’s credibility any good. No crime was committed but she’s a con-artist.

  • bicurious

    @Glücklich: I understand that the readership of Queerty is wide and varied, that not everyone here went to college, reads anything beyond online sites such as this, etc. but still it always surprises and somewhat depresses me to read these type of conservative and conformist comments coming from a gay.

  • 1EqualityUSA

    bicurious, “I understand…blah, blah, blah, insulting and demeaning remark…but it always surprises and somewhat depresses me to blah, blah, blah, coming from a gay.

  • bicurious

    @1EqualityUSA: I apologize if what I wrote came across as insulting or demeaning. It is just that all the gays I know and associate with seek to create culture, not kowtow and even enforce the morse of the absolute lowest forms culture. Forgive me if I expect better of my fellow gays.

  • bicurious

    Forgive me again, I meant to write “mores” note “morse.”

  • 1EqualityUSA

    Could you have any more disdain?

  • Glücklich


    Meh, Dolezal is a laughing stock so that’s what I’ll do: laugh.

    Now if you’ll excuse me, I must return to becoming Crown Princess Miki-Mousei of Japan, the woman I always wanted to be.

    Wha..what? I don’t understand the question. Of course I’m a Japanese lady of good breeding!

  • 1EqualityUSA

    Glucklich, this has been the finest use of 4:29 minutes of my life.

  • M K

    @bicurious: Fine to become the person you want to be… just don’t lie to everyone about it. She’s still a loser.
