Kenan Thompson, Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga pulled double duty as both host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live and she didn't hesitate to poke a little fun at herself. The night's sketches included a glimpse into the future, with a washed-up Gaga reminiscing about her glory days in her Upper West Side apartment, where she's forced to call upon her superintendent to keep her company. On the musical side, Gaga was joined by special guest R. Kelly for her single "Do What U Want."Check out highlights from the episode below:
25 totally unnecessary TV spin-offs
Lady Gaga Monologue: Gaga's opening monologue includes a jazz lounge version of her single "Applause" (which surprisingly wasn't one of the two numbers she performed), and an explanation of how to get cheap reactions from a crowd. She also gives a winking nod to those pesky hermaphrodite rumors.

"Waking Up with Kimye": The night's best sketch features Jay Pharoah and Nasim Pedrad as Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, respectively, who are now hosting their own morning show. Gaga guests as a dowdy Apple employee whose fashion sense goes up against Kim's in the segment "Kim Wore It Better."
Weekend Update: "Mr. Senior": Is this the human version of Grumpy Cat? Kenan Thompson plays an older gentleman who's completely exasperated with people who are already gearing up for Christmas.
The Rosé Zone: Introducing a new channel for fans of reality TV. Modeled after the NFL's RedZone platform, the Rosé Zone compiles all the trashiest moments from the Real Housewives to Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
Future Gaga: The year is 2063, and Lady Gaga's superintendent has no idea that the crazy old lady in his building used to be an international superstar. To be fair, he's more of a fan of classic rock, like One Direction.
