-"Invasion of Privacy" dropped Friday, and thank you for being here tonight. First of all, I love the cover of the record. Did you know this was going to be the cover when you shot it? -No, not really. You know, we did different looks. I didn't even know this was going to be a look. The outfit that we had for this hair, it just wasn't fitting me anymore. -Oh, 'cause of the baby? -Yes. -Ah. [ Laughter ] By the way, I want to say the reveal of your beautiful baby bump was so awesomely done on "Saturday Night Live," and classy, and kind of -- It was just beautiful 'cause you were just -- you were rapping, and just with the microphone, and the beautiful white dress, and as the camera came out, and just revealed your baby bump I was like, "What?" Did you time that out? Did you know that you were gonna reveal? Yeah, I was like, "You know what?" I kind of -- I never really wanted to reveal that I had a baby, I just wanted to hide it till the end, ahh. The "ahh" day. I could have gotten away with it if it weren't for them meddling paparazzi. [ Laughter ] Meddling paparazzi. -Meddling paparazzi. Yeah, but you were going to hide it? You were just going to like -- private -- have your own private thing. -Yeah, because, you know, I was just scared of what people would think and say. I was just freaking out, but I just couldn't -- It was like well, why not, why not present it in a beautiful, clean way, and then "Saturday Night Live," just why not? -It was beautiful. It was great. And you did that, and I know I just asked you, but you went there, and then you -- the show ends at, like, 2:00, well I mean 1:00 in the morning, but then did you go home right after that? -Yes. -You did, yeah. [ Laughter ] Now, this record is certified gold already. [ Cheers and applause ] I knew! I knew it was going to be good. I knew it was going to be good. I called it. I want to take credit for it even though I had nothing to do with it, but on the album you have a reference to Chrissy Teigen and Rihanna. -Yes. -Yeah, and -- -Ay yi yi yi yi, spicy! [ Light laughter ] Yi yi yi! And it said I need @ChrissyTeigen, know a bad bitch when I see one. Tell ri-ri I need a threesome." And -- [ Laughter ] [ Clears throat ] Yeah, and Chrissy Teigen tweeted out, "Gasp! Drops biscuits." [ Laughter ] That went viral. That was pretty fun right there. -Drop your panties. [ Chirping ] [ Music plays ] -Now part of you -- [ Laughter ] I want to -- for people at home that are getting to know you, I know you have this -- you have very awesome ways of expressing yourself through different sound effects, and I think it's good to know what they are, and what they mean so that everyone here in the audience and everyone at home and everyone around the world can talk to you, and you know, really express back to you. So I was wondering if you could help us out with that and just go through three of the words, or sounds, or things that you're famous for, and just explain it to all of us, please. Do you mind? -Sure. -This first one is eeow? Eeow! -Oh. You know, that's, like, almost like -- like a sad cat sound. [ Laughter ] Like a cat that's going through pain. Eeow!

It almost seems like a plane landing. -Eeow! -And what situation would you be in for that to come out? -Oh, you know like when they tell you good news, but it's good, but it's not exciting. Like, it's like, "Oh, I have a new job." Eeow. [ Laughter ] -You guys ready to try it? Three, two, one. -Eeoow! -Okay, this is good. This is -- Now, the second one, is same spelling. [ Laughter ] This is eeow, but it's higher? [ High-pitched ] Eeow. -No, no, no. Aaaooow! [ Laughter ] [ Applause ] -What is that one?
