  • During a promo of 'SNL,' Dan Levy requested Phoebe Bridgers to write a song about him 
  • The singer politely declined the request
  • Levy also recently starred in his first Super Bowl commercial

"Schitt's Creek" star Dan Levy seems enthusiastic about his first appearance on "Saturday Night Live" (SNL) as a host.

In a promo of the episode that will be broadcast Saturday, the Canadian actor appeared with singer Phoebe Bridgers, and asked her if she would like to write a song about him. However, the 26-year-old singer didn't hesitate before politely declining the suggestion.

"Phoebe, since we've been this week, I wonder whether you could, like, maybe write a song about me, or whatever," Levy had suggested, to which Bridgers replied, "I think I'm good on that. Thanks though."

Levy has started the year 2021 with a bang as he tried his hands at a couple of new things. Besides hosting 'SNL,' the 37-year-old actor also starred in his first Super Bowl commercial.

Comedian Aidy Bryant, who was also sharing the stage with Levy and Bridgers, immediately started singing a song to tease the "Schitt's Creek" star.

All three of them donned a facemask considering the COVID-19 safety protocols. The "Shrill" star noted that viewers have huge expectations from Bridgers and Levy's performance this weekend.

"Dan, I want to see big commitment out of you and Phoebe, I expect your songs to be hilarious! Weird Al level," Bryant added. Bridgers immediately responded, "they're not."

Apart from appearing on 'SNL,' Bridgers had recently opened up about an interaction with Marilyn Manson, who has been accused of sexual abuse by several women.

The singer recalled visiting the musician's house as a teenager with a couple of friends. She noted she was a huge fan of the 52-year-old musician before she saw a room, which he referred to as "r*pe room."

She further wrote she immediately stopped being his fan as it was a "horrible frat-boy sense of humor." She concluded her tweet by stating she supports everyone "who came forward" to speak against the abuse.

In the same thread of tweet, she disclosed that everyone around the musician knew what was happening, including the band, management, and the label. She pointed out how everyone was distancing themselves from Manson while pretending to be horrified and shocked.

The series of allegations started after Evan Rachel Wood opened up about her experience on Monday. More than 10 women also came forward with similar claims following Wood's social media post revealing Manson's horrific abuse. She noted the musician "brainwashed and manipulated" her into submission and now, she wants to expose him.
