*Kanye West will appear as the musical guest on the October 2 episode of “Saturday Night Live,” which will feature “Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston as the host.
The appearance, which NBC confirmed this morning, will come less than a month after West closed out the VMAs with the debut of a new song, “Runaway.”
West’s visit to the long-running sketch comedy series was arranged despite the fact that he dissed the show in his track “Power” — where he raps, “F— ‘SNL’ and the whole cast. Tell ’em Yeezy said they can kiss my whole ass.”
His last “SNL” appearance came during its 2007 season premiere — and it didn’t go over so well. [Listen below.]
He also appeared in a sketch during that episode, which was hosted by NBA star LeBron James. There’s no word on whether he will act during this upcoming appearance.
