This week, Hannah Montana hosted Saturday Night Live. Poor, little Miley Cyrus. The 18-year-old girl is destined for a lifelong struggle of "Hootie" syndrome (I'll constantly flip name reference, Total Recall problem). Her appearance on SNL, at least expanded her demographic, as an audience outside 12-year-old girls or 40-year-old men tuned in. Montana was luckily accompanied The Strokes, who performed songs off their forthcoming album, Angles.
Celebs are constantly barraged with the media's hype over their faults. Similar to siblings, they wait for a star-peer to absorb the heat with his/her own blunders. A few months back, Miley was captured in a photo with a bong. Montana in a revealing, white dress (if Salvia's legal, so are 18 y/o's), performed a monologue that addressed the errors that far-exceeded her own.
The bubonic, "Bieber Fever" is making the "Cyrus Virus" look like the common cold. It's a bit frightening how closely Hannah resembles her male counterpart Justin Bieber in this sketch of The Miley Cyrus Show. The highlight of the entire clip is Sudeikis's 90s, Billy-Ray mullet.
Everyone's talking about Charlie Sheen's existential enlightenment due to heavy doses of hookers, cocaine, and tiger blood. SNL is a little late to the party, but Bill Hader does a great impression of Wild Thing on "Duh! Winning". So who thinks that Sheen wasn't actually cast for the "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" scene?
In lieu of the weakness of Cyrus-whelmed sketches, The Strokes' performances confined our televisions on NBC. Following their extensive, 5-year break, they're finally releasing Angles on March 22. They performed the album's closing track, "Life is Simple in the Moonlight", as well as the newest single, "Under Cover of Darkness".
Next week appears promising, as Zach Galifianakis returns to the SNL stage. It's going to be difficult for him to follow his season 35 monologue (HEY EVERYBODY, HERE COMES THE CHOO-CHOO!)
