This announcement comes after the news that Jim Carrey would take over the reins from Woody Harrelson playing Joe Biden, as America draws closer to the presidential election. Alec Baldwin will be reprising his role as Donald Trump.

Carrey pitched himself as Biden to creator Lorne Michaels directly. Michaels told Vulture, “He and Colin Jost had a bunch of talks. He and I as well. He will give the part energy and strength, and…Hopefully it’s funny.”

Earlier this week, Megan graced the cover of TIME Magazine as one of the 100 most influential people of 2020. Other musicians profiled as part of the feature include The Weeknd, Halsey and Selena Gomez.

Megan is also currently topping charts around the world with her collaboration with Cardi B, ‘WAP‘, marking both artists’ first UK number ones.
