Lady Gaga Helps Spoof Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on Saturday Night Live
The skit, titled "Wake Up With Kimye," featured the highly-publicized couple running their own morning talk show. SNL vets Nasim Pedrad and Jay Pharaoh portrayed the dynamic duo, and Lady Gaga played Karen, an Apple Store employee who worked at the Genius Bar.
After explaining that she fixed computers for a living, Karen got a piece of West's mind.
"And this somehow makes you deserving of the title genius?" Pharaoh as West shouted. "You do not deserve the title of genius. You can't just throw that term around. Mark Zuckerberg is a genius. I am a genius. I am a god!"
He then made Karen stand up and compared her outfit to Kardashian's.
"Y'all like this dress? I picked it out. This ain't no Kris Humphries, basketball wife Kim," he declared. "I turned this woman into an artist. A philosopher. An intergalactic icon of creativity."
"And I'm blond now!" Pedrad as Kardashian joked.
But while playing the computer store employee, Gaga made a comment on West's fashion-obsessed persona.
"I don't care about fashion," she said. "I think people who try too hard with their outfits are maybe hiding something. Like come on, dress like a person!"
The line got a lot of laughs, and so far there's been no comments from the real West or Kardashian, who were spotted on a fashionable dinner date in Philadelphia last night following the return of the Yeezus Tour.
West is known for not taking jokes about him or his bride-to-be well. After talk show host Jimmy Kimmel spoofed the rapper's BBC interview, the "Black Skinhead" emcee blasted the comedian on Twitter, which ultimately led to him being invited on the show to air his grievances.
In 2009 West and Gaga were set to co-headline the Fame Kills: Starring Kanye West and Lady Gaga tour, but West pulled out following the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards where he infamously interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech to declare Beyonce had the best video of all time. West took a break from his career and Gaga went on to do her solo tour, The Monster Ball.
