'SNL' Spoofs Kanye West & Kim Kardashian, And Lady Gaga Makes Fun Of Herself

"Saturday Night Live" went out on a limb this weekend and parodied known parody-hater Kanye West and Kim Kardashian in a talk show spoof, "Waking Up with Kimye."

Jay Pharoah and Nasim Pedrad nailed their respective impersonations of the A-list celebrity couple, with Kanye fawning over Kim's supposed innovation ("She just changed the game! Food is jewelry now!" he exclaimed, as Kim held up a macaroni necklace).

He then brought on a nerdy woman, played by host Lady Gaga, who works at the Apple Store's Genius Bar. He pointed out how dull her clothes are, leading Gaga's character to winkingly remark, "I don't care about fashion. I think people who try too hard with their outfits are maybe hiding something."

She continued to make fun of her own flashy sartorial choices: "Like, come on, dress like a person!"

Only time will tell how and if West will respond to the sketch. Earlier this year, he was rumored to have threatened to pull out of his scheduled "SNL" performance if the sketch show made fun of Kardashian.
