Teen country star Taylor Swift poked fun of herÂ love life and a recent incident with Kanye West when she hosted â€œSaturday Night Liveâ€ (“SNL”) this weekend.
Swift, 19, started out the evening with a â€œMonologue Song,â€ which not only showcased her voice, but her sense of humor as well.Â She sang about her famous breakup with Joe Jonas, of the Jonas Brothers, and the recent rumors (based on sightings together, including a recent hockey game) that she is dating â€œTwilightâ€ and â€œNew Moonâ€ star Taylor Lautner.

In the â€œMonologue Song,â€ she also joked about how West wouldnâ€™t be able to interrupt her on stage this time, as she had security.Â This parody stemmed fromÂ the MTV Video Music Awards in September, when WestÂ went on stage during Swiftâ€™s acceptance speech for Best Female Video, grabbed the microphone, and said that Beyonce had the best video of the year, leaving Swift speechless onstage.Â On a side note, and a nice tie in, Lautner was on stage as a presenter at the time.
Another shout out to the Lautner-Swift dating rumors on “SNL” included a â€œTwilightâ€ parody sketch, â€œFirelight.â€Â In the clips, Swift played the role of Bella Swan, who was infatuated with Frankenstein, instead of a vampire. Â

Other sketches of the evening included Swift as reality star Kate Gosselin as a substitute host on â€œThe View,â€ and Swift as a teenager (with braces and headgear) complaining that parents’ distracted driving skills are worse than teenagers texting while driving.
Aside from hosting, Swift also rocked the stage as the musical guest of the night, which was expected.
