Smiling on the stage of Saturday Night Live, Lizzo showed us there is nothing she cannot do. Walking out in a blue dress with a sparkly overlay jacket, Lizzo wowed the audience as usual. However, this time she showed the world she is more than just a singing talent and impressed fans and critics with her brilliantly entertaining opening monologue. "My name is Lizzo and, yes, I'm shocked I have clothes on too," she opened in recognition of her usual, more risqué attire. "I'm really excited. Tonight, we're going to make history! That's right, we're going to break the record for the amount of time 'b****' is said on live TV!" Here's what to know about her SNL debut...

In true Lizzo style, she used her moment in the spotlight to hilariously address all the rumors circling about her. "I read a lot online that I'm dating every little white boy in Hollywood. They think I'm collecting members of One Direction like infinity stones," she laughed. "I even heard a rumor that I'm pregnant with Chris Evans' baby. I have no idea where that one started. It could be the TikTok where I said, 'I am pregnant with Chris Evans' baby,'" she laughed. "It's called manifesting, OK!?" LOL.

Another hilarious moment was when the star poked fun at her own song and her now-iconic lyrics in reference to her big SNL moment. "I know it's shocking that I'm nervous because I'm the one who said, 'I just took a DNA test, turns out I'm 100% that b****.' Well, to be completely honest, I'm really like 50 percent 'that b****,' 10 percent 'boss b****,' and 40 percent 'flute playing, band nerd b****.'"

As the SNL host and musical guest, Lizzo had her work cut out for her. After her opening act, she took part in numerous hysterical sketches alongside the regular cast of SNL, perfectly taking on a range of roles. There may have been a few moments of laughter and broken character, but hey, it's Queen Lizzo! We'll let it slide! Towards the end of the show, when it was time for the musical guest, she made SNL history again, this time as the first act to introduce themselves. "Ladies and gentlemen, me," she joked. LOL.
