Cookie From ‘Empire’ Took Over ‘Sesame Street’ On ‘SNL’

Cookie, meet Cookie Monster.

It was a given that Taraji Puppet Henson would slip on her finest coat and play her breakout Empire character on last night’s SNL. It was a surprise, however, that the coat she’d be wearing would be made of Muppet feathers. Cookie visited Sesame Street, where she threatened Snuffleupagus, got some bird stoned, and stole their namesake food from Cookie Monster.

Also unanticipated: that the Sesame Workshop would agree to all that.
