Kanye West Agrees to Perform on Saturday Night Live, But No Kim Kardashian Skits Allowed

Kanye West Kim Kardashian Bump

Kanye West is returning to Saturday Night Live! Ye’ will be the musical guest on May 18th, but he only agreed to perform if SNL promises not to make fun of Kim Kardashian.

“Kanye as musical guest is a great get for SNL, but of course the writers want to push the envelope and take advantage of it with a Kim Kardashian skit,” an insider at NBC told Radar.

“That’s not unusual since her famous family has been spoofed before with some very hilarious and spot-on impersonations of a whining Kim. They have to tread lightly because Kanye hasn’t been happy with all the flack Kim’s been getting about her pregnancy weight gain.

“It’s definitely going to be a challenge – the writers don’t want to piss off Kanye so they’re prepared not to cross the line, but they will go as far as they can.”

According to the source, the producers are desperate to spoof the famous and pregnant reality star, but they’re being careful not to cause any “creative differences” with Kanye.

“The writers are pushing real hard for an over-the-top skit and the producers are there to reel them right back in if they go too far. Normally the writers have free reign and just go for it, but there has to be some boundaries when your musical guest is Kanye and he’s super sensitive about the constant Kim bashing,” adds the source.

“They’ve come up with a win-win scenario where Kim actually gets a cameo at the end of the skit. That would probably make everyone in Kanye’s camp — and especially Kim — very happy.”

We’re looking forward to seeing Kanye. We wonder if he’ll perform any of the new music he recently played for Island Def Jam last week?
