SNL: When is Elon Musk hosting Saturday Night Live with Miley Cyrus?
SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE on NBC is gearing up towards a very special episode hosted by Elon Musk. But when is Elon Musk hosting SNL with Miley Cyrus?Fans of the long-running comedy skit series don't have long to wait until Elon Musk will host the show.
Elon Musk and his SpaceX company are determined to make it to Mars, and so too is his partner, Grimes. Grimes, the Canadian singer whose real name is Claire Boucher, recently said on Instagram she is "ready to die with the red dirt of Mars beneath my feet". Similarly, Mr Musk, who fathered the child of Grimes' first born called X Æ A-Xii, has said he hopes to get SpaceX to Mars "well before 2030".
As a result, the couple are the bookmakers' favourite to become the first couple to wed in space.
Paddy Power has given the couple a 50/1 chance of getting married in space.
While 50/1 might seem a little high, Leicester City were valued at 500/1 to win the Premier League title in 2016 - but the Foxes pulled it off.
Dogecoin price skyrockets to an all-time high as Elon Musk drives DOGE frenzy with memes
DOGECOIN prices have hit an all-time high amid a flurry of investing from memesters spurned on by SpaceX mogul Elon Musk. The "meme cryptocurrency" is now valued at a staggering £12.54billion ($17.24billion).Dogecoin has seen an unprecedented amount of high-profile support in recent months, with Mr Musk taking the charge.
Mr Musk and Grimes have also been given a better chance of being the first couple to have a child on Mars than Leicester were to win the league, according to Power Power.
The popular Irish bookmaker believes the eccentric billionaire and his pop sensation partner have a 250/1 chance of becoming the first couple to produce a Martian.
A Paddy Power spokesman said: "With Elon Musk saying he wants to get people to Mars by 2026, it sounds like someone's first trip out after lockdown is going to be pretty special.
"So, we really have to consider the possibility that Grimes might end up giving birth to a Martian.
"She's going to serious lengths to make sure a child named X Æ A-ii is not the weirdest one in the family."
SNL confirming Elon Musk as a host draws a mixed response
SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been announced as the host of Saturday Night Live on 8th May but not everyone is eager to see the South African entrepreneur front the show. Musk will be appearing alongside musician Miley Cyrus on the show in two weeks time and given his antics on Twitter, shouldn’t come as a huge shock to anyone. Unlike his equivalents such Jeff Bezos or Bill Gates, Musk has developed an unusual persona for himself on social media, where can often be found posting memes. He has also dipped into the world of conspiracy theories about the Covid pandemic too.
In a Q&A video in February, Grimes said she is prepared to serve as a manual labourer on Mars, even at the risk of death.
When asked about the biggest risks of moving to Mars, she said: "Manual labour until death most likely, but hopefully, that can change".
SpaceX's Starship will make it to Mars within the 2020s according to its owner, Mr Musk.
Mr Musk said on Twitter: "SpaceX will be landing Starships on Mars well before 2030.
"The really hard threshold is making Mars Base Alpha self-sustaining."
Mars Base Alpha is the code name for the first human base on the Red Planet.
For humans to settle there, there will need to be a constant supply of food, energy and water.
SpaceX has said of the Starship: "This capability will enable a fully reusable transportation system designed to carry both crew and cargo on long-duration, interplanetary flights and help humanity return to the Moon, and travel to Mars and beyond."
