AceShowbiz - Pink took the stage on "Saturday Night Live" October 14 in New York. She delivered her new songs "What About Us" and "Beautiful Trauma". Both songs have powerful messages. They are taken from her seventh studio album which came out over the weekend.
The 38-year-old singer arrived at the studio, accompanied by her longtime husband Carey Hart. "Such an honor to do so," she wrote on Twitter after her performances. "So fun!!!" Her husband gushed, "Wifey absolutely slayed #SNL tonight. Very proud of you baby."
The episode was hosted by "Silicon Valley" actor Nanjiani Kumail. The Pakistani star addressed racism during his monologue. "Islamophobia is really on the rise right now," he said. "It never really went away, but it's really having a moment right now." He added. "Islamophobia is kind of like Will & Grace. It was huge a while ago, and then we thought it was gone and done, but now it's back and bigger than ever. Thursdays on NBC."
"If someone yells at me 'go back to India,' I'm like, 'that guy's an idiot.' But if someone was like, 'go back to Pakistan,' which was part of India until 1947, and is now home to the world's oldest salt mine,' I'd be like 'that guy seems to know what he's talking about.' " The comedian told racists to "do the research!" "Put in the work! You will see the benefits," he said. He finally quipped, "Just because you're racist, doesn't mean you have to be ignorant. An informed racist is a better racist."
"SNL" also tackled Harvey Weinstein scandal during "Weekend Update" and an all-female "Film Panel" sketch, saw Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump announcing an upcoming "response rap" following Eminem's diss freestyle, and portrayed Kate McKinnon's Kellyanne Conway as the creepy Pennywise the Clown from the horror movie "It".
