When controversy began to stir surrounding the lack of diversity on Saturday Night Live, I remember thinking, “this should be interesting.” In a world where a lack of diversity on TV shows is called out only to be completely ignored, this one seemed to take a hold of the American public and mainstream media. The controversy was fueled by the fact that one out of the two black male cast members, Kenan Thompson, publicly stated that he would no longer dress in drag to play black women.

There’s been a huge uproar ever since Saturday Night Live cast member Kenan Thompson went on record addressing the show’s lack of diversity claiming black women just aren’t “ready” to appear on the iconic TV show. And we applaud everyone who’s been speaking out against his claims, because in our eyes female minority comedians are more than ready for the big league show. Perhaps SNL’s creator, Lorne Michaels isn’t looking deep enough.

If it's possible, Bruno Mars made us love him even more when we found out he covered one of the most memorable Disney songs ever, "Part of Your World" from The Little Mermaid. Seriously, what's not to love about this? The song comes on and everyone instantly wants to sing along, then to have one of our favorite artists sing it for us just makes it even better!

Let's face it. Taylor Swift can thank Kanye West for one thing—giving her the best press of her life. The entire VMA debacle solidified her as America's sweetheart. If you weren't in Swift's corner before, you certainly were after West snatched that mic out of her hand. We all wanted to stand up and protect the young singer/songwriter from the cocky, drunk rapper. And now, after watching Swift's A+ performance as host of SNL this weekend, the teen can officially do no wrong.
