Cat Power Sings For Kids, Has Inevitable Breakdown
Remember when Chan Marshall—otherwise known professionally as Cat Power—casully mentioned she’d like to audition for Saturday Night Live? I’ve seen her freak out on stage before, although definitely not as bad as some of her more notorious on-stage meltdowns (friends of mine have told tales of seeing her play shows with her back to the audience before walking off in the middle of her set), so I can’t imagine how she’d fare on live TV every week. But who knows, maybe her Miley Cyrus impression would rival Vanessa Bayer’s. She has the hair for it, after all. The folks at Funny or Die pretty much made a stellar audition tape for Marshall, who shows up in a new sketch in which she performs classic songs for second graders. As expected, everyone feels weird by the end.
