Though she has been acting and telling jokes for several decades, Betty White has never been on "Saturday Night Live." But that will change this weekend when White takes the stage at 30 Rock. She'll host a very special Mother's Day edition of the show, which will also feature appearances from great "SNL" comediennes of the past, including Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, Maya Rudolph, Ana Gasteyer and Rachel Dratch. It promises to be a great night of comedy and a stellar piece of music as well, as Jay-Z will serve as the musical guest.
According to promos about the show, White and Jay will actually be collaborating on a sketch or two. But as it turns out, it's not the first time the man born Shawn Carter and White have teamed up. In fact, MTV News' own Sohyung Kang managed to unearth (or, more accurately, completely invent) a handful of photographs from their past projects together. Remember that time early in his career when Jay subbed in for Bea Arthur on "Golden Girls"? Or the special appearance spot White made in Jigga's video for hit from The Blueprint "Girls, Girls, Girls"? And of course, who could forget the major impact White made when she showed up alongside Jay and Rihanna in the eye-catching "Run This Town" video?
But by far their best (and probably most famous, if it actually happened) tag team effort was back in 2004, when White showed up in the video for Jay-Z's "99 Problems." Wearing her trademark (OK, not really) beard and fur coat, she strutted her stuff next to Jay as they made their way through his former neighborhood in Brooklyn. Who will ever forget this image?
