She cracked up the audience during her “Weekend Update” segment on “Saturday Night Live” over the weekend, but writer Leslie Jones' racially-themed remarks have rubbed some folks the wrong way.
During her rant, Jones lamented the fact that she’s tall and strong because she can’t get a date these days. And though she congratulated Lupita Nyong’o for being named People’s Most Beautiful Woman, Leslie also noted, “The way we view black beauty has changed.”
Her vocal chops caused quite a buzz in "Pitch Perfect," even spawning a radio smash with "Cups," and Anna Kendrick showcased that talent when hosting this week's "Saturday Night Live" (April 5).
Sketches that featured her singing voice included her opening monologue channeling Belle from "Beauty and the Beast," a "Little Mermaid" parody, and the hilarious "Dongs All Over the World" musical short with the other lovely ladies of "SNL."
