Ke$ha is currently prepping for her stint as musical guest on this week’s “Saturday Night Live,” when “MacGruber” star Ryan Phillippe hosts the show. And while Ke$ha is known for her wild pop-star persona , she has yet to show the world her comedy chops. So will the “Tik Tok” singer be able to flex her comic muscle on Saturday night?
“I have some ideas. I don’t know … it hasn’t been confirmed or denied yet [if I’ll appear in a sketch], so I can’t say for sure. But I would love to do something funny,” she revealed to MTV News on Thursday (April 15) during show rehearsals.
Although she’s still unsure if she will actually appear in a sketch, she did pitch some ideas to “SNL” writers. “Well, they’re top-secret, so I can’t tell you,” she teased. “But one idea was someone recently told me I smell like shrimp in a diaper, so I thought I could do a perfume skit about me with my eau de perfume being a shrimp in a diaper. It’s very sensual.”
Ke$ha would also love the opportunity to appear in at least one sketch with Phillippe. “We bonded. You can say that,” she laughed. “I mean, that would be ideal [to star in a sketch together]. I hope that happens.”
It’s not always easy to get up there and be funny on “SNL,” and Ke$ha hopes to score some time with Andy Samberg to ask for advice. “I just met Andy and that was awesome,” she said. “But we didn’t really get to chat yet.”
