More About Bad Bunny
The 29-year-old Puerto Rican rapper took center stage as the host and musical guest for the second episode of the 49th season, joining Pedro Pascal, a notable figure and former SNL host.
During his monologue, Bad Bunny, whose real name is Benito Antonio Martinez Ocasio, brought out the 48-year-old Pascal, who switched from presenting in English to helping with the rapper’s Spanish translation, saying, ‘It’s not my first language.’
As soon as the actor stepped on stage with Bad Bunny, they shared a warm embrace. After some more lines spoken by the rapper in Spanish, Pascal humorously said, ‘He says, I’m grateful to be here with my favorite actor, Pedro Pascal.’
The rapper asked Pascal for advice on his monologue. The ‘The Last of Us’ actor shared that ‘making self-deprecating jokes’ or ‘taking embarrassing photos’ is always a winner.
Bad Bunny then showed a hilarious picture of himself, covered only with a small towel in the sun. Pascal asked, ‘How is this embarrassing?’ and Bad Bunny replied, ‘Because I forgot to wear clothes!’
Pascal joked, ‘Clearly, making fun of you is nothing, so why not tell everyone what you want to say.’ Bad Bunny concluded his monologue expressing gratitude for being on SNL and thanking the fans for their support.
In a sketch alongside actor and rapper, they played a scene where Pascal portrayed a mother unimpressed by her son bringing his ‘second girlfriend’ home.
Participating in various skits, including one featuring a caricature with The Rolling Stones icon Mick Jagger, Bad Bunny returned to his musical roots by performing his hit songs ‘On Preview’ – which was presented by Lady Gaga during another memorable cameo – and ‘Monaco,’ presented by Pascal.
Just two days before his SNL appearance, the Grammy-nominated artist announced that he would embark on a 31-city North American tour starting in Salt Lake City, Utah in February 2024.
According to a press release, each performance on Bad Bunny’s ‘The Most Wanted Tour’ will be a ‘first-day experience for fans.’
The announcement of the busy global superstar’s tour came just a few days after the release of his highly anticipated album ‘Nada Sabes de Amor (Nobady Noz What Happened Tomorrow)’.
The new record follows his award-winning album, ‘El Último Tour Del Mundo,’ which was nominated for Album of the Year at the 65th Grammy Awards and won a Grammy for Best Urban Music Album.”
