Jimmy Fallon debuted his version of the Tonight Show last night. He started off with the PERFECT introduction, saying, quote, “I’m Jimmy Fallon and I’ll be your host . . . for now.”
He did 2 monologues. First one was more of a thank you to everyone. Including his parents. Then he came out with monologue #2 – and started in on the Olympics and other current events. When he finally got to his desk – He looked in the camera and said something like ‘for you my friend – you know who you are – you never thought I would make it as host of the tonight show – you owe me 100-bucks”. And a slew of celebs came out and slapped a C-note on his desk. Robert DeNiro, Tina Fey, Joe Namath, Rudy Guliani, Mariah Carey, Tracy Morgan, Joan Rivers, Kim Kardashian, Seth Rogen, Lindsay Lohan, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mike Tyson and Lady Gaga. Steven Colbert comes out and dumps a hundred dollars in pennies on Jimmy and then took a selfie. here’s the video of all that – soo funny! His guests were Will Smith and U2 sand 2 songs… one on the roof.
Forget a cigar – Simon Cowell offered to pay for a Barbados vacation for the hospital staff that brought his son into the world. Insiders say he was in such a good mood and felt like he owed them all a massive debt for bringing his son into the world safely. Just a few hours after the birth he said he wanted to pay for seven of the staff to enjoy a trip to Barbados. He felt it was the least he could do.
Anything for a tall skiny vanilla latte. The Wall Street Journal claims NBC is housing a secret Starbucks store inside their Sochi Olympics compound. The coffee is free and poured by baristas, who were flown in specifically for the games. Starbucks isn’t suppose to have a presence in Sochi because McDonald’s McCafe’s are already in place.
Remember during the Grammys – when Ozzy Osborne was supposed to introduce the Beatles – and then forgot to say The Beatles? (here’s the video to refresh your memory!) Well, Sharon Osborne is finally explaining the flub. Apparently he loves the Beatles too much. He saw Ringo – Paul – Yoko – and just froze up. “He was overcome. When they finished the other guys were teasing him the entire night. His entire life he has just idolized the Beatles. He says that’s what got him into music. I’ve been with Ozzy… coming up 35 years and every single day for 35 years he has listened to the Beatles… When Ozzy was in a coma, when he had his motorbike accident, we used to blast the Beatles in his room.”
