Halsey Portrays Kendall Jenner in Saturday Night Live Sketch with Kim Kardashian, Performs New Music

PEOPLE 11 October, 2021 - 06:30am

Halsey was a powerful presence on Saturday Night Live!

The singer, 27, returned as the musical guest on SNL, joining host Kim Kardashian West on the show to perform songs from their fourth studio album, If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power.

First, the musician took the stage in a dark green catsuit and thigh-high boots to deliver a fierce rendition of "I Am Not a Woman, I'm a God."

They later came back for a second time for a heartfelt performance of "Darling" with former Fleetwood Mac member Lindsey Buckingham, wearing a black gown and hat.

In addition to singing, Halsey also flexed their comedic chops, appearing as Kendall Jenner in the "The People's Kourt" sketch, alongside Kim, Khloe Kardashian and Kris Jenner.

In the sketch, Kim presides over the courtroom as sister Kourtney Kardashian, while Kris sues Kendall and Kylie Jenner. "I'm suing Kendall because she has absolutely no drama," Kris says. "She won't cause any drama and it's damaging our brand."

"I'm a Jenner, not a Kardashian!" Halsey as Kendall replies. Kris then responds, "And that's something you need to work on, honey!"

Hours before the scheduled performance, the new mom — who welcomed son Ender Ridley in July with boyfriend Alev Aydin — teased that they might be too busy to hit the stage!

"Feeling very busy playing with my baby's chubby legs and tater tot feet might skip SNL idk," they tweeted. To which SNL playfully replied, "😳 please no!!!"

In August, Halsey opened up to Apple Music 1's Zane Lowe about being in love and the role their relationship played in the making of If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power.

"I love my partner, our relationship is so full of love and passion and communication. I remember having that moment when I was probably five or six weeks pregnant and being like, so what happens now? Do I have to be boring?" the musician said.

"So many of the things that I self-identify with are not compatible with motherhood," they added. "Well, that's when you realize too, that's when you take a step and you go, oh, I'm holding onto my trauma because it's part of how I define myself and I'm never really going to grow unless I really let go of that trauma."

Halsey also said the album was the "easiest one" they've ever written.

"Everyone was like, 'Why are you writing an album, you're pregnant?' Because it was the easiest album I've ever written," the "Without Me" singer said. "In true Halsey fashion, the writing of the album always manifests itself in a complete juxtaposition to how I feel in my real life."

"Manic, I told you, was this album that I had initially intended to be an angry, political, pissed off, fem pop-punk album. And then I ended up with these eclectic rainbows and butterflies, synth-like. And I was when I made that album, but it manifested itself in a different way," they continued.

In an Instagram post from July, Halsey said the concept of the album was "the joys and horrors of pregnancy and childbirth."

"The idea that me as a sexual being and my body as a vessel and gift to my child are two concepts that can co-exist peacefully and powerfully," they wrote. "My body has belonged to the world in many different ways the past few years, and this image is my means of reclaiming my autonomy and establishing my pride and strength as a life force for my human being."

Halsey also delivered a fiery performance of their lead single “I Am Not A Woman, I’m A God.” In it, she commanded the stage in a leather bodysuit against a futuristic backdrop.

Halsey has frequented SNL the past few years. She pulled double duty as host and musical guest back in 2019, becoming the 38th entertainer to handle both roles. The singer made their SNL debut in 2018 performing the single “Bad At Love” from her sophomore album Hopeless Fountain Kingdom. Then, G-Eazy joined them onstage for “Him & I” from the rapper’s fifth studio album The Beautiful & The Damned.

The singer released her third studio album If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power in August. Produced by Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, the LP chronicles the beauty and pain of motherhood. “The idea that me as a sexual being and my body as a vessel and gift to my child are two concepts that can co-exist peacefully and powerfully,” they said of the record on Instagram.

Alongside the record, Halsey also shared an hour-long IMAX movie, which grossed nearly $1 million at the box office during its limited theatrical release in August. The concept film, described as an “evocative, horror-tinged fairytale,” will be available to stream via HBO Max starting October 7.

The Kim Kardashian West-hosted episode marked Halsey’s fifth appearance as musical guest.

Lindsey Buckingham Joins Halsey During ‘Saturday Night Live’ Performance

Yahoo Entertainment 11 October, 2021 - 06:30am

For their two-song set, Halsey selected two songs from their recently released fourth studio album If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power.

Halsey’s first song of the night was “I Am Not A Woman, I’m A God,” the first single from the album. The performance took place under a spotlight on the industrial-themed stage that featured copious amounts of fog and an animation of a red ball bouncing down pillars to the beat of the song.

Halsey stuck closely to the original arrangement of “I Am Not A Woman, I’m A God,” though they did recently release a four-track remix EP for the song that features new takes on the high energy single from Gazelle Twin, On-U, Underworld’s Drift and Hot Chip.

For their second performance of the night. Halsey was joined on the Saturday Night Live stage by Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham for a heartfelt performance of “Darling,” which appears about halfway through If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power.

With Buckingham on acoustic guitar with backing vocals, Halsey performed the lullaby-like song that reads like a letter to her recently born child against a background of rolling green fields. The song features hopeful lyrics to revisit during hard times as they sing: “Until it's time to see the light / I'll make my own with you each night / I'll kidnap all the stars and I will keep them in your eyes.”

Halsey last appeared on Saturday Night Live in 2020 to perform “You Should Be Sad” and “Finally // Beautiful Stranger” from her third studio album Manic. Her 2019 appearance featured performances of “Without Me” and her Benny Blanco and Khalid-assisted collaboration “Eastside.”
