Presenting “Saturday Night Live” for the first time, singer-actor Selena Gomez announced in her monologue that she was single and wanted to mingle – but ended up dreaming about a dinosaur.
Gomez, who began her acting career at age 7 with the big purple dino Barney, is now on the Hulu series “Only Murders.”
“I was so honored to work with [series co-stars] Steve Martin and Martin Short, especially after I Googled them to find out who they were,” Gomez deadpanned.
She was serious, she explained, about finding love on the show.
“Emma Stone met her husband here…Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost, and Pete [Davidson] and … Machine Gun Kelly,” she blundered.
But she quickly turned down instant offers from Kyle Mooney, James Austin Johnson and Punkie Johnson (although Punkie was “kind of vibe,” Gomez noted). “Let’s see how the afterparty goes,” she added hopefully.
It was then that she led the public in a song of one of her first very great loves: “I love you, you love me, we are a happy family.”
