The billionaire businessman is set to make his hosting debut on the comedy show on Saturday, May 8.
“We didn’t discuss it at all because we’re all just like … I just don’t understand why this is the dude everyone’s so freaked out about,” said Davidson, while appearing on “The Breakfast Club” on Thursday, May 6.
“I was like, ‘What did he do? He’s just like, a really wealthy businessman that makes, like, nerd s**t’ I don’t know. He’s really nice. I’m excited.”
Asked if other cast members were upset about Musk’s appearance, Davison replied, “Nobody that I f**k with.”
He continued, “Everybody’s kind of been like, ‘Yo, who’s the guy that’s so pissed off?’ ‘Cause we’re on a group text, so we’re all just like, ‘I don’t know. So, yeah, we’re all excited and really don’t understand the controversy.”
Co-host Bowen Yang previously shared a frowning face on his Instagram Story after Musk’s hosting debut was first announced.
Elsewhere in the interview, Davidson also dished out the secret recipe to his all-star dating game.
The comedian’s known romantic involvements include Ariana Grande, Kate Beckinsale, Cazzie David, Margaret Qualley. Most recently, Global’s “Saturday Night Live” star is rumoured to be dating “Bridgerton” actress Phoebe Dynevor.
“I am just very, very honest,” Davidson shared. “I think what a lot of people do is they try to put on — not even their best self — but almost a version of themself that they would like to be. And eventually, that will unravel, you know?”
“So, I just, off the top, I’m like, ‘Hey, I’m nuts. Here’s all my issues. Here’s what I do. Here’s the therapists. This is what happens.’ And that can either be a lot for someone… or they could be like, ‘Cool, that was really refreshingly honest.’ Or, sometimes it can be a little intense and weird and people can’t handle that stuff,” he added.
Davidson, 27, also stressed the importance of communication.
“No, if I’m into you, I’m really into you,” he explained. “It just creates this whole anxiety and a lot of stress, and there’s enough of that going on. So, I think, like, that part of the relationship, it should be so easy. It should just be like, ‘Hey, there’s something wrong today.’ ‘Hey, I’m really happy today.’ Communication’s really key.”
“If you trust and love the person, they’re doing their thing whatever, I think as long as you guys keep in touch or can understand each other, I think you’ll be fine,” he added. “That would be my advice.”
Davidson and Dynevor sparked in March after being spotted in the U.S. and England together.
