Lizzo showed off her many talents as both host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live this weekend.

In her opening monologue, she joked that she would be breaking the record for the most times “b****” was said on live TV, shouted out her mom in the audience, and joked about he rumors that she’s pregnant with Chris Evans’ baby.

“I have no idea where that [rumor] started. It could be the TikTok I did where I said, ‘I’m pregnant with Chris Evans’ baby,’” she said, adding, “It’s called manifesting.”

She went to appear in a bunch of sketches, including one called “Orchestra” where she plays a flautist who can’t play her flute without twerking, one about the Black Eyed Peas coming up with lyrics to their songs in 2008 and a trivia game segment called “Guess That.”

Lizzo also performed twice – singing her new song “About Damn Time,” as well as the title track off her upcoming new album Special.

Her SNL appearance marked her second time as musical guest, but her first time as host.
