Selena Gomez Tonight she made her debut as a host Saturday Night Livespeaking in her opening monologue about the Hulu سلسلة series Only the murders in the buildingShe starred alongside Steve Martin, Martin Short, and others.

Gomez opened her monologue by noting that, growing up, she’d been watching the late-night show with her mom every week. “This is a big moment for me,” she said. “I actually started acting when I was seven years old and was fortunate enough to work with some of the Hollywood icons, [like] Steve Martin, Martin Short and of course Barney.”

Then we snapped a shot of the actress with the purple dinosaur from one of her appearances on the kids show Barney and friends Back in the early 2000s. “This was the first show I was in, and now I’m on a show called Only the murders in the building,” Gomez noted. “I was honored to work with Steve Martin and Martin Short, especially after I Googled them to see who they were.”

Gomez remembered that when she told a friend that she participated in a show called just killingThe friend said, “Mm, that sounds exciting. Which co-stars are hot?”

“And I was like, ‘It depends,’” the host joked. “Do you like the banjo?”

Even if just killing It’s not all that exciting, Gomez said, it’s a “cool” job with two SNL legends. “When I found out I was hosting, I immediately asked for their advice,” she said. Steve said, ‘Trust no one,’ and Marty said, ‘I think Steve Martin was using my credit card. “

Gomez said she also asked one of her “older friends,” Miley Cyrusto host tips, and then get off on the impression that Cyrus tells her, “Just be yourself and have fun.”

The host went on to explain that she’s happy to be on the show because she’s single, and she’s heard it’s a “great place” to find love. Emma Stone met her husband here. [There’s] Scarlett Johansson, Colin Jost and Pete [Davidson] And… Machine gun Kelly,” Gomez clobbered. “Since I don’t want to get into dating apps, I go out in the universe where I show love. I would say I’m looking for my soul mate, but at this point I’d take anyone.”

“Ah, I’ll do that,” said cast member Kyle Mooney, as he took to the stage—and asked Gomez, “What?”

“Be with you as I said,” Mooney explained. “I’ll do it.”

Gomez then shot him, and when Mooney indicated that she would take “anyone,” the host admitted she was “kind of kidding,” also calling out the fact that Mooney is married.

Gomez’s next suitor was “new cast member, Jeff”—who he referred to as James, as in James Austin Johnson. And while the host was wrong about his name, she made it clear that she knows he’s married, too.

Then, there was Punkie Johnson, the self-proclaimed third potential love interest.

“Honestly, it’s kind of like the vibe,” Gomez said, “but let’s see how the next party goes.”

Before moving forward with the show, Gomez paused for a moment to express her gratitude for the hosting opportunity. “I’ll admit I’m a little nervous,” she said in closing, “but I’m just thinking about those words of wisdom that one of my co-stars said to me before every show.” “I love you, you love me, we are a happy family.”

Gomez then leads the audience members in long vocals for Barney and friends“I love you” to finish the drawing. She was joined on The Tonight Show by guest musician Post Malone. Check out Gomez’s monologue by clicking above.
