Elon Musk, 49, was an unexpected choice to host Saturday Night Live — but the Tesla CEO certainly delivered in his monologue. No topic was off limits, as he confirmed he was the “first person” with Asperger’s to host the series.
“It’s an honor to be hosting SNL — and I mean that. Sometimes when I speak, I have to say ‘I mean that’ at the end because I don’t have a lot of intonation or variation when I speak,” Elon Musk, wearing a sleek black blazer and t-shirt, said on stage.
“Which I’m told makes for great comedy. I’m actually making history tonight as the first person with Asperger’s to host SNL,” he added. He went on to poke fun at his confusing, and sometimes controversial tweets.
Elon Musk’s stunning mom, supermodel Maye Musk, also appeared! The 73-year-old glowed on camera next to her son, absolutely beaming with pride. The tech founder is a longtime fan of SNL, and according to HollywoodLife, sources close to the show told that he didn’t want to be remembered for controversy — but rather being a good host.
