Offset Gets Outside Interference From Ric Flair ... To Rip Fallon Stage

4/18/2018 7:15 AM PDT

Takeoff & Quavo watch out ... Offset might've found a new companion to kill stages with, 'cause him and Ric Flair totally pinned the whole 'Tonight Show' crowd with a performance of "Ric Flair Drip."

Offset kicked off the proceedings, strutting his way through the first verse before Flair came out and drove the crowd wild, showing that at 69 (lol) he can still style and profile with the best of them.

We're not sure how far Offset and Ric will take this whole thing -- remember, they already dropped an epic video for the song together -- but the robes match, the swag matches and the struts are identical.

I'm telling you, somebody is about to get left off the next "Bad and Boujee."

Method Man & Ghostface Killah Teach James Comey About C.R.E.A.M. Where's Our Damn Album?!!

4/18/2018 7:52 AM PDT

Wu-Tang Clan's next collab is gonna be really weird ... is what we'd say if this pic with ex-FBI Director James Comey was taken anywhere near a recording studio.

Thankfully, Ghostface Killah and Method Man were just backstage at the 'Late Show' Tuesday when they ran into Comey. Truth is, Meth and Ghostface have some pressing biz with Comey's old boss ... and might have hit him up for advice.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions currently has custody of Wu-Tang's album "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin" ... which the feds seized from Martin Shkreli.

We're guessing Comey told 'em he's not exactly tight with his old crew at the Justice Dept. 

Sorry, 'fellas .. I got canned.

Questlove, NBC Sued You Fired Us 'Cause We're White All Over a 'Racist' Text

1/24/2018 1:00 PM PST
Breaking News

6:00 PM PT -- A rep for Questlove tells us he denies the "ridiculous allegations" in this suit, adding ... "Racism is REAL and exists throughout the world and for these gentlemen to claim victim is not only disrespectful to Questlove and his band mates, but to all that truly endure racism on a daily basis."

3:36 PM PT -- A rep for NBC tells us, "NBC is committed to providing a work environment in which all individuals are treated with respect and dignity. We have strong policies in place that protect against discrimination in any form. The decision about these plaintiffs was the company's alone."

Questlove demanded NBC fire two white camera guys on the 'Tonight Show' over a racist group text they never asked to be a part of ... this according to a new lawsuit.

Camera operators Kurt Decker and Michael Cimino just filed suit against the TV network and the leader of The Roots after what they claim was misappropriated blame and racial retaliation from Questlove after each of them received a racist text he caught wind of.

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, a stagehand sent Decker, Cimino and Roots member Mark Kelley -- who's black -- a text during a taping of the 'Tonight Show' last year, which they say they never asked for or responded to. They say they tried explaining this to NBC execs in an attempt to distance themselves from the vile text, which they feared would be associated with them.

Questlove got wind of this and demanded that NBC fire the camera operators, which NBC did.

The Roots band member who also received the texts did not get punished.

EXCLUSIVE

Jimmy Fallon's so stoked on Giancarlo Stanton joining the Yankees, dude went straight PRIMAL when we asked him about the blockbuster trade.

"OOOOOOOOOH ... what a season we're gonna have, oh my goodness!" Jimmy grunted/said to TMZ Sports in the Big Apple.

Fallon's New York born and bred ... so he couldn't even try to play it cool talking about Stanton -- and new manager, Aaron Boone -- putting on the pinstripes.

The real question -- how are Jimmy and Giancarlo gonna top Aaron Judge's appearance on "The Tonight Show?"

Another amazing moment from Tim Tebow -- this time, he surprised an "inspirational" special needs fan by asking her to slow dance on "The Tonight Show."

The whole thing is great ... Tebow was talking to Jimmy Fallon about his annual "Night to Shine" event (a prom-style event for special needs kids all over the world) when he pulled a fan out of the crowd!

Turns out the fan is Judy Adams -- who had invited Tim to be her date to the event, but a travel conflict kept Tebow from accepting her offer.

So he made it up to her on "The Tonight Show"  with some help from Fallon -- and it's awesome.

Breaking News

Julian Edelman says his Super Bowl miracle catch was more luck than skill -- and admits he wasn't even sure it was gonna count when the ref blew the whistle!!!

The New England Pats WR appeared on "The Tonight Show" with his coach, Bill Belichick, on Monday and, of course, they dissected the hell out of that insane 4th quarter game-saving catch. 

"It was probably 70% luck," a very bearded Edelman said ... admitting he tried to get Tom Brady to rush the next play so the refs couldn't review it!

Didn't matter ... it was as legit as it gets and Jimmy Fallon says the WR should use his newfound global catch fame to start a new business! 

Jimmy Fallon Unpacking Trump's 'Bag' with Hillary

9/20/2016 6:55 AM PDT

Jimmy Fallon finally hosted Hillary Clinton on his late night show -- and they did exactly what you'd expect ... took shots at Donald Trump.

The bit went like this -- Jimmy unpacked a brown paper bag he claimed Trump left behind from his 'Tonight Show' appearance. It was full of gag items, including a framed homage to Vladimir Putin

Check out the clip -- Hillary gets in a couple jabs ... first at Jimmy, then at Putin. The Putin could potentially complicate things at a future state dinner. 

The rest of it was more like a stump speech by Clinton -- and Jimmy let her go and go ... 

Donald Trump Gets Messy with Fallon ... It Ain't A Toupee!

9/16/2016 7:19 AM PDT

Donald Trump let Jimmy Fallon get in what he hopes is one last shot at his famous hairdo. 

The candidate went on the 'Tonight Show' ... and Jimmy acknowledged this might be his final shot to mess up the Donald's 'do. After all, the Secret Service doesn't take kindly to that kinda thing with actual presidents.

Trump was game and the end result wasn't pretty but it's real.

Take that, Bill Murray

Obama on Fallon I'm Really Into My Side Hustle

6/10/2016 6:15 AM PDT

President Obama reinforced his footing in entertainment with another performance -- this slow jammin' with Jimmy Fallon again.

Obama took a shot at Trump during the bit ... not his best.  

This one definitely required rehearsal. So the question ... who's in D.C. running the country?

Obama Trump's a Good Choice For Republicans!!!

6/9/2016 6:50 AM PDT

President Obama is thrilled with the presumptive Presidential nominee ... on the Republican side.

The Prez taped a segment for Jimmy Fallon Wednesday and seemed pleased as punch that Trump will be the standard-bearer of his party.  

He was a little more coy about his meeting Thursday with Bernie Sanders, and whether he can get the Bern to fall in line behind Hillary.

Meghan Trainor My Ankle Says NO! Takes 'Tonight Show' Dive

5/13/2016 6:41 AM PDT

If someone told Meghan Trainor to "break a leg" before her 'Tonight Show' appearance -- she took it way too seriously.

She performed her song, "Me Too" Thursday night and turned to face her band for the BIG finish ... which was great. Not so great her pivot back to the microphone.

And you know what always makes a fall worse -- fighting it. Watch ... you'll cringe and then laugh, which is okay since her camp says she didn't get injured. 

That right shoe is so fired.

Madison Bumgarner Hey Jimmy Fallon ... Here's a Pair of My Undies!

11/4/2014 7:37 AM PST


Jimmy Fallon tried on Madison Bumgarner's underwear on live TV last night ... and it was hilarious. 

The World Series hero appeared on "The Tonight Show" -- armed with a gift for the talk show host ... a pair of the "Mad Bum" undies that Jockey started making in Bumgarner's honor. 

FYI -- the undies have quickly become collector's items ... since Jockey only made 2,000 pairs to commemorate the pitcher's historic World Series performance. 

Fallon was pumped about his new drawers ... and tried 'em on right on the set. 

Bumgarner couldn't have been prouder.
