Looking For Love, Host Selena Gomez Shuts Down 'SNL' Suitors

"Let's see how the after-party goes," she told Punkie Johnson.

Hosting “Saturday Night Live” for the first time, singer and actor Selena Gomez announced in her monologue she is single and wants to mingle — but ended up mooning over a dinosaur.

Gomez, who started her acting career at the age of 7 with the big purple dino Barney, is now in the Hulu series “Only Murders in the Building.”

“I was so honored to work with [series co-stars] Steve Martin and Martin Short, especially after I Googled them to find out who they were,” Gomez deadpanned.

She was serious, she explained, about finding love on the program.

“Emma Stone met her husband here ... Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost, and Pete [Davidson] and … Machine Gun Kelly,” she goofed.

But she quickly turned down instant offers from Kyle Mooney, James Austin Johnson and Punkie Johnson (though Punkie was “kind of a vibe,” Gomez noted). “Let’s see how the after-party goes,” she added hopefully.

That’s when she led the audience in a song from one of her first, very big, loves: “I love you, you love me. We’re a happy family.”
