The minute I saw that Katy Perry would be hosting Saturday Night Live with Robyn as the musical guest, I could already feel the angst filling in my soul. I love Swedish popstar Robyn, but I despise Katy Perry. I didn't like her Christian pop record when I cared about such things, I don't understand how someone who wrote the song "UR So Gay" turned into some pseudo-champion of self-esteem for "Firework" and I can't stand her weird attempt to be adorable and sexy at the same time because I think it makes her seem like she's suffered a brain injury.
So, I was already cringing that I would be forced to DVR the entire ninety minutes of SNL just to catch two performances by Robyn, but the promos for this week's episode make me want to just wait and see the musical performances on Hulu later or something. How could you ruin Robyn for me by putting seemingly the least funny celebrity on earth on your show, Lorne Michaels? How could you?
