Reportedly, “SNL” has had open arms for Chris since the early 2009 Chrihannagate incident. But, of course, he shifted away from almost all public appearances for the rest of the year. And also didn’t make big appearances outside of tour dates and party walk-thrus last year either.
But it looks like Chris is taking another big step in getting back in the public’s good graces. He’s been tapped for next week’s episode of “SNL.”
“It’s not up to me, but I’m sure we would [book him] if he had another hit single. We don’t care about scandal. We just care about what brings us ratings!” said cast member Kenan Thompson last year.
Chris will be the musical guest with host Russell Brand. His music has been heating up the charts lately and his album F.A.M.E. drops March 22nd. And he will likely be in a skit or 2 seeing that they have tons of material to choose from. The jokes will def write themselves. I’m happy Chris is still paying his dues, maturing, and changing right in front our eyes . Congrats to him.
