‘SNL’: Michael Che Jokes Kanye West Is Transitioning Into ‘Old White Lady’

By now you’ve probably heard Kanye West released his gospel music album Jesus Is King, after weeks of delays.

This weekend on Saturday Night Live, “Weekend Update” co-anchor Michael Che noted that the album finally dropped Friday, and said West plans to alter his old hits with G-rated lyrics.

While Che found the idea interesting, he told the audience he has other concerns about West.

“At first, I thought Kanye was losing his mind. Now I feel like he’s fine, he’s just turning into an old white lady,” Che said to laughter.

The comedian went on to explain why he thinks West may be transitioning into an elderly woman.

“He used to be one of the coolest Black dudes on Earth. Now he shows up to events in sweatpants and orthopedic sneakers, listening to Kenny G and trying to get Black people to like Trump,” he continued. “It’s like how long before this guy changes his name to Kathy?”

Che then mentioned another member of the Kardashian clan — an old photo of Bruce Jenner before the Olympian transitioned into Caitlyn Jenner — flashed on screen.

“Now, you might think that I’m crazy, but about five years ago there was a fella named Bruce Jenner, and he moved to Calabasas…” the SNL star said as his voice trailed off.

Che appeared perplexed and turned to co-anchor Colin Jost, who chuckled while covering his face with his hand.

West’s friend, Chance the Rapper, hosted the episode and served as music guest.
