Taylor Swift's opening monologue for "Saturday Night Live" has been buzzed about for weeks. But it was still surprising.
"I have wanted to host this show ever since I was a little kid," Taylor explained. "I'm so excited and nervous." And then, as she usually does when she's excited and nervous, she sang a song about it.
She admits that she often writes songs based on her real life, for instance, "douche bags who cheat on me." But there were certain people who were off-limits in this song.
]]>"You might think I'd bring up [Joe Jonas]," she sang. "That guy who broke up with me on the phone. But I'm not gonna mention him. 'Hey, Joe. I'm doing really well.'"
She kept singing, "If you're wondering if I might be dating that werewolf from 'Twilight,' I'm not gonna talk about that," as she playfully waved and mouthed "I love you" to the camera.
And she didn't talk about Kanye West either. But she had a security team this time lining the stage.
Way to go, Taylor. Well sung!
