Elon Musk showed a mixture of humility and joy when he opened one of his most anticipated hosting kicks Live Saturday night.
The Tesla CEO and founder of SpaceX opened his monologue by mocking his monopoly speaking style, saying no one could tell when he was making fun.
“The hosting is very good Live Saturday night I really mean it, “said Musk, who stood on stage in a black T-shirt.” Sometimes after I say something, I have to say that I mean it. “
Musk mocked his Twitter account, which has more than 50 million followers, and tweets that led some critics to object to his invitation to host the show. “Look, I know I sometimes say or post weird things, but that’s how my brain works,” he said.
Then he added a pride, which received the biggest laugh of the night and an applause break. “For anyone who has been hurt, I rediscovered electric cars, I send people to Mars on a rocket ship,” Musk said. “Did you think I would be a cool, casual dude too?”

Musk did not appear in the hot and unusually cold open air of the show, in which guest cast Miley Cyrus sang at the inspiration of her god Dolly Parton as the cast members and their mothers made brief bits for Mother’s Day Clear blue morning light.
But Musk brought his own mother model May Musk to the stage during his monologue and talked about what he looked like when he was 12 years old.
“I’m excited for my Mother’s Day gift, and I believe it’s not Doc Coin,” he said, citing the cryptocurrency Musk on his Twitter account.
“It is,” he replied.
The casting selection brought criticism from those who felt that a show was celebrated by a man with great inequality for his exaggerated wealth, and from those who spread misinformation on his biggest Twitter account when underestimating the severity of the Govt-19 crisis.
Muskin’s look has been compared to the show’s controversial end in 2015 to invite guests as Donald Trump prepares for his presidency.
