Justin Bieber delivers funny, factually-incorrect Black History Month monologue on Saturday Night Live

Teen heartthrob Justin Bieber was last week’s host and musical guest on NBC’s Saturday Night Live and though he may be known for being a multi-platinum recording artist, his comedic timing was right on cue. His opening monologue, a tribute to Valentine’s Day and Black History Month was as equally funny as it was inaccurate.

“Girl you driving me crazy but did you also know that Denzel Washington invented the peanut?” Bieber said to one female audience member as he offered her a rose. He perused the audience looking for a “special girl” to help him celebrate that “special time of year, that romantic time of year… Black History Month,” he said.

The Canadian teen continued to screw up the facts as he made romantic gestures toward young women in the audience, saying things like, “Sup gorgeous? Did you know that black folks invented the Kwanzaa?”

SNL actor Kenan Thompson was there shadowing Bieber, straightening him out. “Yeah that’s barely a fact, JB,” Thompson said to Bieber about his Kwanzaa remark. “I think everyone just assumes that.”

After a minute of questioning what he knew about Black History Month, Bieber once again attempted to combine the romance of Valentine’s Day with his knowledge of Black History Month, singing, “Maya Angelou invented the peanut.”

“It’s not every year that Valentine’s Day and Black History Month fall in the same month,” he confidently informed the audience.

The opening monologue ended with Justin Bieber finding his special girl, handing a bouquet of roses to audience member and actress Whoopi Goldberg.
