Watch: Selena Gomez says she's 'also an actor' in Saturday Night Live promo
- Selena Gomez hosts the upcoming Saturday Night Live episode
- Post Malone appears too
- SNL ends its 47th season on May 21
Selena Gomez, the pop star, is hosting the upcoming episode of 'Saturday Night Live' on May 14, though, in a recently released promo, she's set the record straight that the 29-year-old is also an actress.
Gomez, who hosts the episode along with rapper Post Malone, appears in the promo alongside castmembers Aidy Bryant and Bowen Yang.
When Bryant refers to the four as "two pop stars and two comedy actors", Gomez corrects her by saying "I’m actually also an actor."
Post Malone follows the 'Only Murders in the Building' star, correcting Bryant that he isn't actually a pop star, and Yang jumps in stating he prefers drama over comedy.
Bryant quips in reply, "OK, well, I didn’t know you were also a bunch of divas".
Another part of the segment clip starts off with Yang trying to get a sense of how Gomez might be feeling, running the show as its host. Notably, she was on the NBC show as a guest back in 2016. Yang says, "Selena, first time hosting", adding, "You nervous? You got ants in your pants?"
As the clip goes on, it becomes evident that Gomez might actually need to check for ants, when Bryant and Post Malone both urge her to do so. The pop star asks if she should know about something, to which the trip reply they've accidentally spilt jelly on her pants, and then left it out in the sun for three days before the 'Sunflower' singer comes in with big news that he spilt his ant farm on her pants.
All three say "Sorry" in unison, as Gomez looks on.
The long-running show closes out its 47th season in the coming week, on May 21. The musical guest and host are yet to be announced for the episode after Gomez's.
