Lady Gaga takes the stage on Saturday Night Live this weekend, pulling double duty as host and musical guest.
In a run of SNL promos touting her upcoming stint, the ARTPOP singer — decked out in a fancy black dress, blonde bob and a memorable hat — and cast member Kenan Thompson do their best to bring a united front. Thompson even tries to win Gaga over by wearing a meat watch, a reference to the 2010 meat dress that she wore to the MTV Video Music Awards.
“Just be yourself!” Gaga insists. He takes a bite out of the lunch meat. “Maybe don’t be yourself…” Gaga trails off.

In another promo, Thompson and Gaga tackle issues surrounding weight. Thompson is seen talking to a lamp with a blonde wig over it, which he mistakes for the “Applause” singer. “Gaga, you look just like I remember you,” he says to the lamp. “No, Kenan, I’m over here. That’s a lamp,” the real Gaga says. “Wait, what?! No!.. I can’t tell the difference,” Thompson says.
Another spot sees the duo faux-throwing up and having fun with a flashlight (aka Tinker Bell).
