Elon Musk's 'SNL' promo is as 'wild' as he is!
By now we know that Elon Musk will be debuting on Saturday Night Live on May 8. He will be hosting the episode, along with Miley Cyrus. The promo of the same dropped recently, where we hear the SpaceX founder joking, saying, "I'm a wild card, so there's no telling what I might do." "Same here. Rules, no thanks," the crooner quips.
The unlikely (?) duo was part of a hilarious promo, where Cyrus asks the Tesla founder, "What's new with you?" "I just did a successful rocket launch this week," he laughs, while SNL cast member Cecily Strong adds, "Wow, I did my laundry." Cyrus will be making her sixth SNL appearance as a musical guest, and fans are eagerly waiting for her performance.

Cyrus made her last appearance on SNL last April, as a surprise musical guest and performed Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here. She made her SNL debut in 2011 with The Strokes. In 2013 and 2015, she was both the host and musical performer. Cyrus recently dropped her remix of The Kid LAROI's Without You, and she will be performing it on SNL today.
It's said that SNL cast members, Bowen Yang and Aidy Bryant, voiced their displeasure over Musk's booking. Yang, a staff writer at SNL, posted a frowning emoji on his Instagram story while responding to Musk's announcement, "What the f**k does this even mean." SNL boss Lorne Michaels said members who are not comfortable working with Musk won't be forced to appear on the show.

Musk will make his SNL debut just a week after his SpaceX Crew Dragon Endeavour successfully docked with the International Space Station. He also celebrated his son X Æ A-Xii's first birthday on May 4 with his girlfriend Grimes. The outspoken entrepreneur courted a lot of controversies related to COVID-19 in the past. He also called the coronavirus lockdown measures "fascist."
