Taylor Swift's opening song on 'Saturday Night Live': Sings to Kanye West and Taylor Lautner


In her opening “Monologue Song (La, La, La),” SNL host Taylor Swift sang, “You might think I might say/something bad about Kanye/and how he ran up on the stage and ruined my VMA monologue/but there’s nothing more to say/because everything’s okay/I’ve got security lining the stage.”

She also took a jab at “Joe” (that is, Joe Jonas) and sang that we might expect her to say something about “dating the werewolf from Twilight” — but instead, she silently mouthed “Hi, Taylor” and blew Lautner a kiss and winked at the camera.

Having finished the song, she announced, “We have a great show. Kanye West is not here.”

So far, so good…

    And she also mentioned her ex, Joe Jonas. She can’t seem to get over that can she? I really wish she would just learn to keep her personal matters to herself and grow up. She needs to get over him and whatever happened between them.

    • dwayne

      yeah relax on Taylor, the fact that she can mention things and make light of the somewhat negative media attention is by mentioning it. its HER life why can the MEDIA mention it and not HER?

    • ashley

      i know, i thought that was soo wrong,.. she honestly made a fool out of her self, sooo sad :( plus she cant sing a tune

      • simon

        thank you, her songs SOUND decent but the lyrics are STUPID and laughable. She pathetically tries to insinuate she is a “regular” girl not a cheer captain, yet she dresses up all the time and clearly is fairly good looking. Do music companies think people are so stupid to buy this “regular girl” act? It’s just like in Disney movies where the main actress trips and falls a lot to show us she is just like us!

      • LK

        alright go find yourself a regular girl and take her to a music company and see if she can sell records. the music industry is biased and full of themselves. if you aren’t beautiful, even with a half decent voice, you’ll never have a record contract.

        get real, simon.

      • sarah

        lolz i agree

    • S

      Um, I don’t think she wrote that monologue. She delivered it. And that Joe comment was pretty funny.

      • Jonas

        I thought the Joe comment was WAY funny – and I am glad she “went there”.

    • Kristi

      The people complaining about what was said in her monologue have obviously never seen SNL before. That’s what they do. They make fun of pop culture. It’s a joke… and they wouldn’t have been doing their jobs if they wouldn’t have poked fun at the headlines their host has made. Everything on SNL is a JOKE. It’s a show for people who have a sense of humor. And I doubt she wrote that monologue herself. SNL has a team of writers who take care of those things.

      • Tom

        Wow, the jonas brothers fan club came out in full force for these comments

    • JayJay

      Really? Why are you hating on her when In fact it is a comedy show and the produces had a say in what she should talk about. Seeing as that was one of the most media frenzy moments in her life and the fact that jow jonas is an idiot made the whole things more funny. Hence the show.

    • Matthew

      Are you kidding? It’s a comedy show. She’s not seriously making an issue of it, she’s alluding to the general public’s shared mental reservoir of her personal life. Kind of what she has to do, a big part of comedy.

      • Gabriela

        Greetings from Los angeles! I’m bored to tears at work so I decedid to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the knowledge you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, superb site!

  • Sara

    I thought it was funny. You’re just biased because you must worship the Jonas brothers.

    • ohmyjonasmeg

      Yes, I do love the Jonas Brothers but even if I was neutral on both of them it’s still a little pathetic. It happened a year ago. No one’s talking about it anymore but her. Not the media, not Joe, just her

      • brandi

        Agreed. Also if she is secretly dating Taylor, I wonder what he thinks about her still being bitter about Joe.. Hopefully he can see she’s STILL no over him!!

      • Kristi

        It’s COMEDY. It’s what SNL is about. NOTHING ON THAT SHOW IS MEANT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY. If you’re taking anything said in the monologue (or any other part of the show) as anything other than a joke, you need a reality check.

    • Steph

      yeah, seriously! SNl is a comedy sketch show, people here need to relax. I thought the monologue was hilarious…so she took some jabs at people? It was funny! Well delivered- and probably not written by her. It was a very good intro. And she was a very good host.
      So stick that in your juicebox and suck it JoBro-Tweens!
      P.S. That ^ is a joke- try to laugh.

  • Kyle

    The song was funny and tonight so far the epsiode has been pretty good, They Still need to work on the opening of the show!!!

  • Alex

    It was cute and funny. I was ambivalent about Taylor but she sure charmed me!

    • Mike

      You captured my response perfectly. I thought it was an excellent opening monologue. The song was hilarious and she hit the comedy just right. I frankly could care less about Taylor herself, or all the gossip that surrounds her, but apparently I had picked up enough by osmosis to get all the jokes.

  • Kyle

    Ok let me tell you but that one sketch on Weekend Update about the dogs, I believe that someone is not happy about that!!!

  • Alyssa

    haha, i am an over the top jonas brothers fan and even i found that it was hilarious, i love the song in general :P

  • SAM

    It hasn’t came on here yet so i really shouldn’t be reading this but i couldn’t help it but i can’t wait 2 hours!!!!!!!

    I ♥ Taylor Swift

  • Mackie

    Her monologue was sooo Taylor! Team Swift all the way!

    • Sam Mayday Malone

      I’m sorry but what is with people saying Team”insert name” – it sounds really dumb and a little sad honestly.

      • x

        Does’nt it though, and not to mention reallllllly corny and a little pathetic.

  • invaliduser

    i tried but taylor swift is horrible

  • Kelly Rodriguez

    First that Foxx girl from Transformers now some hillbilly singer? SNL has its highs and lows, but this season is just awful. It’s on par with the sophomoric attempts like MAD TV. Just bad comedy….

  • Ryan

    Wow…she has been just awful. Each of her skits have been incredibly awkward. This has to be one of the worst SNL episodes I’ve ever seen. I really hope she sticks to singing because she is talentless when it comes to acting. I really don’t have any idea what SNL is thinking when the recruit a host like her. Are they just trying to save money because she can host and be the musical artist? Because it seemed pretty clear even before seeing the show she wasn’t going to be a good fit for SNL. SNL would have lost a viewer tonight if I didn’t love Mad Men’s January Jones. Heres hoping next week’s episode will be better, although I find it highly unlikely it could be any worse.

  • Ryan

    Please, please, for the love of God, bring back Justin Timberlake or just cancel this show already.

    • James T

      I agree – they show Kirsten Wiig WAY too much, please kick her off the show and bring back Michaela Watkins

      • Scott

        Are you kidding, Kristen Wiig is the only funny thing about this crappy show.

  • Tari

    Frankly, it was hilarious.
    And now it needs to go on itunes so that we can buy it.

    • Ryan

      No offense, but did we watch the same show? Or is this Taylor Lautner?

  • fancypants

    she seems like a nice girl and is quite pretty, but let’s be honest Taylor CANNOT sing. her singing sounds like talking. miley cyrus sounds like old school whitney compared to taylor.

    • Alex

      Now, now, Miley is GOD-awful.

      • fancypants

        true. but she can carry a tune better than swift (which isn’t saying much).

    • James T

      Renee Olstead is the best talent of this generation, not these cookie cuter “talents” that these corporations shove down everyone’s throats. Have you seen the ridculous Rock Band commercials with Taylor Swift – she is so awful but they are funny

    • riley

      Well, She wasn’t REALLY singing the song with her real voice! She was talk-singing it!

  • Jackie

    The whole point of SNL monologues is to basically poke fun at everything the media says about you. The media brings up Joe Jonas all the time. Same with Taylor Lautner and Kanye West.

    And to this Simon person: being “fairly good looking” and caring about fashion isn’t exactly an anomaly among teenage girls, regardless of whether or not they are cheer captain. Dressing nice? It’s called being an average girl. Most of us do.

    • Sam Mayday Malone

      In her songs she tries to paint herself as an outcast yet her face seems to be everywhere these days, seems phony to me. Honestly I think the whole Kanye thing was a planned stunt to draw more attention to her. She has what two decent songs to her name – she will be forgotten soon enough

      • Jenna

        She kinda has an entire hit album. And wow with the conspiracy theories. She makes a lot of people (especially teen girls) feel like they have someone to relate to. Don’t be such a hater.
