Precious‘ star Gabourey Sidibe is nothing like the character that made her famous — Sidibe referenced her Oscar-nominated performance during Saturday night’s ‘Saturday Night Live‘ monologue, when the first-time host insisted “I’m not Precious, I’m Gabourey” to the tune of the ‘The Shoop Shoop Song.’

Sidibe was smiling and bubbly as she informed the audience that, unlike the bleak life of Precious, her real mom is “really nice,” she has plenty of friends, and Mariah Carey doesn’t have a mustache.

Highlights of Sidibe’s stint as host are below.
