I am happy to say that 1984 was definitely a good year, I mean come on I was born and Eddie Murphy was a cast member on the sometimes funny Saturday Night Live.
After being absent from the show for 30 years Mr. Murphy will return to SNL for their 40th anniversary special. Upon leaving SNL their was some bad blood smeared for a few years. Murphy was not happy about the show poking fun at his career in their skits. Murphy told News One that he was not happy about a skit that featured David Spade. In the skit David Spade is holding a picture of Eddie Murphy and he says look a falling star. The comedian has since forgiven all involved with the tasteless joke.
Murphy’s career since SNL has been pretty much a success, he has faced a few knock outs and drag out along the way, but overall the man remains a star.
For all of you who gave up on Saturday Night Live, you just might want to turn back the dial. SNL has some tricks up their sleeve. The November 1st episode will be a must see. SNL alum Chris Rock will host the show and Prince will perform. I will be watching.
I’m sure you know that Jay-Z was attacked by Solange in a hotel elevator after the Met Gala. Don’t act like you don’t know about it. (Side eye) I still can not believe that happened. You can’t make this kind of stuff up.
The security guard who taped the beat down has been fired. I think Inside Edition should hire that person as an Investigative Field Reporter. Yes. I am serious.
While Jay-Z and Solange are trying to move forward from their elevator incident. Saturday Night Live is not. They made fun of the royal music family. Keenan played the security guard, Jay Pharoah played Jay-Z and newcomer Sasheer Zamata played Solange. Those 3 were good, but Maya Rudolph came out and played Beyonce and killed it. Surfboard!
