Scores of songs have been tossed around as pandemic playlist must-haves, from "Stayin' Alive" to "It's the End of the World as We Know It." But one song that belongs on everyone's list, for obvious reasons, is "Don't Stand So Close to Me" by The Police. HA.
Sting joined forces with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots for a socially distanced performance of the song on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and it's perfection. First of all, it's easy to forget that Jimmy Fallon can seriously sing. Second of all, who knew you could use a Connect Four game, a pillow, and a pair of scissors as instruments?! I mean, it's The Roots. I shouldn't be surprised. They're amazing. But still—impressive. Third, Sting is flippin' 68 years old and out here looking like he's never going to age like the rest of us. No fair.
There’s no doubt that Gwen Stefani is a woman of many talents.
During Blake Shelton‘s remote interview on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Monday, the “Don’t Speak” singer, 50, interrupted the proceedings to give her boyfriend a quarantine haircut.
“This interview — I wanted to do it, but we actually have a schedule that we already had lined up for today and I don’t think we can put it off any longer,” Shelton, 43, explained as Stefani appeared, wielding clippers.
The pop star proceeded to shave the sides of the country singer’s mullet, which he previously announced he’d be growing out “as a symbol of hope” amid the coronavirus crisis.
As Stefani worked — at one point attempting to shave Fallon’s initials into the sides of Shelton’s hair — the “God’s Country” crooner discussed the future of “The Voice” and his work with MusiCares, which recently launched a relief fund to help those in the music industry who have been impacted by COVID-19.
Jimmy shares his and Nancy's engagement story during an Ask the Fallons Q&A before Nancy turns the tables, grilling Jimmy about pet peeves and more on another Tonight Show home edition.
It’s not every day that someone surprises you with a reservation to Per Se, one of Manhattan’s most exclusive restaurants (although some critics would disagree), which is, for some reason, located in a very nonexclusive building complex in Columbus Circle. More than a decade ago, Jimmy Fallon’s then-girlfriend Nancy Juvonen was one of those lucky people to snag a day-of res, but unbeknownst to her it came at the worst possible time: Fallon was planning to propose to her that evening, and he sure as hell wasn’t going to do it over citrus-cured Montauk fluke and black winter truffles. “I was dying to go to Per Se. It was like, Oh my gosh, this is a big deal; I really do have to go to Per Se,” he recalled. “But I don’t want to get engaged at the restaurant. I wanted to get engaged at, like, Gramercy Park or something that will always be around, a classic. I didn’t want to go to a restaurant because what if in 30 years the restaurant changes hands, and now it’s a laser-tag place. ‘Kids, this is where your mom an I got engaged, at the laser-tag house.’”
