The Women of SNL Embrace Sara Bareilles and Say What They Want to Say

Still from YouTube

Fifty Shades of Grey star and new ISIS recruit Dakota Johnson hosted SNL on Saturday, and the best sketch of the night saw her and the cast’s women eschew social niceties to engage in some hilarious, much-needed truth-telling.

The reason for this bold rejection of propriety? Sara Bareilles’ “Brave,” the ubiquitous anthem that entreats listeners to say what they want to say. Everyone is at their comedic best here, but Kate McKinnon once again displays an unerring ability to be the funniest person in a show full of funny people.
