Miley Cyrus’ SNL Promos Are Here and We Watched Them and We Don’t Feel Terrible so There’s That

To say that we weren’t enthused after we learned that Miley Cyrus was serving as the host and musical guest on this week’s Saturday Night Live is a bit of an understatement; we may or may not have written the show off as a “hot mess” that’ll spill forth like a vat of radioactive waste, killing all the fish and turning the children into twerkin’, hammer-licking Alex Macks. (We did. We absolutely did say that.)
So we didn’t expect much (other than a pesky case of eye chlamydia) from Cryus’ SNL promos but we have to admit we were pleasantly surprised. Cyrus and Taran Killam make a charming pair; sure, they’re no Britney and Justin in #AllDenimEverything but we wouldn’t not stand next to them at a party and make small talk about our drink choices. (“Oh yeah, just whiskey and ginger ale. It’s funny, I often think I should drink something more adu — Gatorade and Malibu? Really? That’s what’s in your cup? I was wondering why it smelled like a youth soccer league had thrown up in a Sandals…”) We also admire Cyrus’ willingness to make a joke at her own expense. That’s how you win your way out of America’s watchful side-eye and back into America’s heart, Miley: self-deprecating humor!
