Bowen Yang delivered an instantly iconic performance on Saturday Night Live over the weekend as the ice berg that sank the Titanic.
We no longer need to debate what this iceberg would be if it were a person, because now we know – a queen of pop.
Appearing on “Weekend Update” to promote her new album “hyperpop EDM nu-disco fantasia”, titled “Music,” Yang’s Titanic Iceberg stole the show.
Addressing Berg’s cultural heritage, Yang explained, “It was a very long time ago. I have thought a lot to try to get past it. It’s a very small part of me, but there’s so much going on below the surface that you can’t see.

But when Colin Jost urges him to talk about the defining event, Titanic Iceberg’s true feelings come through:
“First of all, you came to where I live and hit me. It was midnight. I was afraid. And then I hear this Irish cacophony behind me.
“And before I turn around and leave, what?” Half of my ass is gone which was my best feature. And I’m literally hurt, but everyone cares if 40 or 50 people are dead or whatever.

And a lot of ado has been made about musical guest Kid Kudi’s choice of wardrobe, which was later explained as a tribute to Kurt Cobain:
Kurt Cobain was a precious soul. At a time when it was popular to shame things that went against society’s idea of normalcy, Kurt embraced and stood up for them. Kid Cudi paid homage by doing the same. I really LOVE to see it. pic.twitter.com/KD94wQ8ROe
