@Lin_Manuel / @nbcsnl / Twitter

Get those DVRs ready, kids. Lin-Manuel Miranda will be hosting the second episode of this season’s “Saturday Night Live.” There are so many reasons why the genius behind “Hamilton” deserves this spotlight, and it isn’t just because “SNL” has a notorious record of ignoring Latino talent. Here are nine reasons why Lin-Manuel Miranda is going to totally slay the SNL stage.

1. He is super inspirational.


That is definitely something we would all love to do.

2. Since Lin-Manuel Miranda was just a little kid, he showed a knack for performing.

Clearly, this man should have hosted the show a looong time ago.

3. The people clearly recognize him and his incredible work.

4. He is very dedicated to his fans and craft.


It helps that he is very comfortable with himself to really go for those out-there roles. #ShipGoals

5. Dude did a rap on International Women’s Day calling for equal pay.

“SNL” could use some more woke af people, imho.

6. He’s connected to the president so, duh.

One just can’t say no to the friends of the prez, OK?

7. He has increasingly become one of the most influential voices in America.


Have YOU ever tried to get a kid to eat a whole egg? #NotThatEasy

8. He is using his fame to get young people politically active, which is crucial this year.


You know, if SNL ever wanted some substantial content laced in with kick-ass comedy. #Ham4Vote

9. But, mainly, because he is Lin-Manuel Miranda!

The MAC + Selena Premiere Was Everything

@SelenaLaLeyenda / Twitter

If you live in Corpus Christi, Texas, then you are undoubtably the luckiest person on the whole damn planet. MAC + Selena made it’s world debut today in Selena’s hometown and the reaction was exactly what you would expect for La Reina.

The lines for the MAC + Selena release were intense.

Hundreds of people lined up and waited for a chance to take home a piece of Selena’s legacy.

Like, seriously. The line was next level.

Anything fro Selenaaasss!!!

And, despite the long lines, people were so excited to be the first to own some of the line.

The rest of the world will get a chance to get their hands on the Selena collection on Oct. 1. Just one day after the lucky fans in Corpus Christi.

And it wasn’t just the guests to the free event that were hyped. Check out the employees.

Ayyyeeee! Not only were this in Corpus Christi privy to seeing the collection first, they were also given swag bags and other merch.

Even John Leguizamo couldn’t help but to get in on all the fun.

And once people got into the store it. got. LIT.

OMG! This is so awesome.

A smart few even ditched their education for the event.

And those who didn’t aren’t real Selena fans. Just a bunch of posers.

Here’s a reenactment of people’s wallets during the launch.

Bank accounts were drained today, as they should. We have waited so long for this moment.

Because once you see this, it is all about swiping that card and owning the collection.

How can you not spend your life savings on this magnificent collection?

Of course, big sis Suzette was there to buy her own Selena collection.

She loved her sister so much. ????

And, yes. There were even some super badass novios there to make their girl’s day extra special.
