SNL video: Lil Nas X gives God a lap dance at Britney Spears’ request

Rapper Lil Nas X made his “Saturday Night Live” debut (via Chris Redd) this week in a cold open that also featured Britney Spears, canceled Looney Tunes character Pepé Le Pew and disgraced Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz occurred. Because why not.

It was all part of Oops, You Did It Again, a recurring sketch in which Spears (perfectly played by Chloe Fineman) sheds light on the week’s biggest parias. She also called out Selling Sunset’s Chrishell Stause – if not by name – for claiming Spears didn’t post her own social media posts before thanking this week’s sponsor: Georgia, “didn’t pick the best place … didn’t choose”.

Lil Nas X (played by Redd) was the first to hit the hot seat when Spears grilled him over his cheeky new music video and controversial line of Satan shoes. “I don’t know why Nike is so crazy,” said the rapper. “Their motto is’ Just do it. ‘Well I did it! “Spears decided, of course, that the rapper could only give God one lap dance, which he did, although he did remind the audience that it was actually his friend Gary (played by Mikey Day) who was disguised like God. You know, just in case you got confused (meanwhile, the real Lil Nas X tweeted, “Snap to hell.”)

The second guest was Kate McKinnon as Pépe Le Pew, who proved he has changed by greeting Spears with a handshake rather than an unwanted kiss. After insisting he doesn’t have harsh feelings about being taken out of the new Space Jam movie, the canceled skunk insisted, “I’m an actor. The role you see me play on TV and in the movies is not me. ” Fair enough.

Then came the real guest of shame: Davidson as Gaetz (with a strong shot of Quagmire from Family Guy). The hostess went over all recent sexual misconduct allegations against Gaetz – including the fact that he allegedly dated a 17-year-old girl he’d taken across state lines and that he allegedly had inappropriate images of his Republican employees who had shown women he slept with – before telling him, “I think I can smell a predator if I see one. After all, I was in the Mickey Mouse Club. “
