Lindsay Lohan was one of the guests last night on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. I fell asleep before she came on, but I’m assuming she was there to talk about her upcoming documentary/reality/need a paycheck show that is debuting on OWN this Sunday.
During the monologue, Fallon said that Lindsay Lohan wanted to play Water War with him. For those of you who didn’t watch Fallon when he was on the Late Show, Water War is basically the simple card game War but the loser of each hand gets water thrown in their face.
Perhaps one of the best movie franchises of my thirty year existence (relax, nerds, I said “perhaps” and “one of”), Back to the Future, has spawned some of the best marketing tactics ever. A couple years ago, we were all dumbfounded when Nike announced they would be releasing the glowing Nike Air Mag shoe, aka the Marty McFly’s. The demand and buzz created from the shoe went above and beyond what was expected and the shoes didn’t even lace themselves, like in the movie.
Lea Michele gets a reputation as a good girl. Probably because of her long running role on Glee. However, leave it to photographer Terry Richardson to take that reputation and blow it up. In fact, this isn’t the first time the pair has worked together. You might remember the Glee themed photo shoot that Richardson did not too long ago with Michele, Dianna Agron and the late Cory Monteith.
Jimmy Fallon wrapped up his first week as the new host of The Tonight Show as well as we all could have imagined. As soon as it was announced that Justin Timberlake would the guest and performer, it was almost a certainty that the two would pair up for another edition of their famous “History of Rap” performances. Both Fallon and Timberlake did not disappoint as they quickly got into their performance as the crowd was beginning to die down.
Last night marked the debut for Jimmy Fallon as the Tonight Show host and it was a star-studded event to say the least. His first guest was Will Smith and in classic Jimmy Fallon-late-show-fashion, they did a sketch together.
Will and Jimmy teamed up to bring us the “Evolution of Hip-Hop Dancing” and it did not disappoint at all. Following the format of the “Evolution of Mom Dancing” he did with Michelle Obama, Fallon and Smith show everything from the Cabbage Patch to the Robot and even some twerking.

This past Sunday, the world was devastated by the news that Philip Seymour Hoffman had passed away, likely due to an overdose of heroin (though official autopsy reports have yet to be released). The actor, who is widely recognized as one of the greatest character actors of his generation, was found with a syringe in his arm, in his apartment, where close to 50 envelopes of heroin were later discovered.
Winner of best actor in 2005 for his role in Capote, Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his New York Apartment Sunday.
Both New York City Police and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner are working together on the investigation with the latter working to find the exact cause of death.
Last May, Hoffman entered a detox program because he relapse back into using narcotics after 23 years clean. He said it started with prescription pills and escalated to snorting heroin. He only spent 10 days at the facility before leaving to start another movie.
