Kacey Musgraves Performs “justified” and “camera roll” on Saturday Night Live
- American singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves appeared on Saturday Night Live to perform “justified” and “camera roll”.
She previously made her SNL musical guest debut back in 2018, ahead of the release of her fourth studio album “Golden Hour”.
Two songs are included on her latest album “Star-Crossed”, which was released on September 10, 2021.
On performance of “justified”, she wore only cowboy boots and her guitar.
It is similar to the scene from the 1994 film “Forrest Gump”, where Robin Wright as Jenny Curran performs some songs naked with her guitar.
Kacey Musgraves tweeted that it is inspired by Robin Wright's Jenny before taking the stage.
“camera roll” is the 9th track of the album. She said of the song, “I thought I was fine. I was on an upswing of confidence. I'm feeling good about these life changes, where I'm at; I made the right decision and we're moving forward. And then, in a moment of, I don't know, I guess boredom and weakness, I found myself just way back in the camera roll, just one night alone in my bedroom. Now I'm back in 2018, now I'm in 2017. And what's crazy is that we never take pictures of the bad times. There's no documentation of the fight that you had where, I don't know, you just pushed it a little too far.”
The new album is her first LP after her divorce. She explained of the album, “This last chapter of my life and this whole last year and chapter for our country — at its most simple form, it’s a tragedy. And then I started looking into why portraying a tragedy is actually therapeutic and why it is a form of art that has lasted for centuries. It’s because you set the scene, the audience rises to the climax of the problem with you, and then there’s resolve. There’s a feeling of resolution at the end. I was inspired by that.”
