Selena Gomez pokes fun at her dating life: ‘I will take anyone’

More like Singles Night Live.

Selena Gomez made light of her complicated dating history while hosting “Saturday Night Live” over the weekend.

“One reason I’m really excited to host ‘SNL’ is because I’m single — and I’ve heard ‘SNL’ is a great place to find romance,” the actress, 29, joked during her opening monologue.

“Since I don’t really want to try the dating apps, I just want to put it in the universe that I’m manifesting love,” she added. “But at this point, I would take anyone.”

Gomez then brought up all of the successful romances that have come out of “SNL” as cases-in-point: Emma Stone and her “SNL” producer/writer husband Dave McCary, as well as Colin Jost and Scarlett Johansson.

The former Disney star also joked about Pete Davidson’s bromance with Machine Gun Kelly, who famously performed and fell off the stage in 2021.

However, audience members and viewers at home clearly understood the joke she was alluding to – about Davidson falling in love with Kim Kardashian after the reality star’s own hosting debut in October 2021.

When Kardashian, 41, hosted the NBC show last fall, she appeared in a skit with Davidson, 28, in which they played Jasmine and Aladdin.

The pair kissed in the sketch, which marked their first-ever smooch. The rest, as they say, is history.
