Conscious uncoupler and noted lifestyle purveyor Gwyneth Paltrow graced the stages of “The Tonight Show” to perform a charming and insipid medley of popular rap songs, Broadway-style. It is, in short, a nightmare. Let us count the ways: That jumpsuit, which pulls strangely at the crotch; her smug-as-shit expression right before she launches into “Anaconda“; Jimmy Fallon’s egregious winky-winky shtick that has been tired since 2011. This is really just as annoying as it sounds, friends! What she does to Big Sean’s “IDFWU” should be illegal. Check it out, above. [The Fader]
I find the holidays generally pretty depressing, but oddly enough, I LOVE Christmas music. Like, I could listen to it year round. Nothing lifts my spirits like the opening bars of “Jingle Bell Rock” and “Silent Night.” Reese Witherspoon is also a fan of Christmas carols, so she agreed to sing “Silent Night” on “The Tonight Show” — only the lyrics had been changed to random and wonky phrases. The “Wild” actress actually has a decent set of pipes — remember her singing as June Carter Cash in “Walk The Line”? — but the sudden change in lyrics proved to be a bit of struggle. It’s okay, you don’t need to sing in tune to get into the holiday spirit.
When Brad Pitt paid a visit to “The Tonight Show” last night to promote his movie “Fury,” he opted out of the traditional interview route and chose to have a subtitle-fueled dance conversation with Jimmy. I have to admit, I’m pretty impressed with their moves! [Us Weekly]
The hilarious (and oddly dressed) Amy Sedaris hung out with Jimmy Fallon last week and gave him a not-so-accurate CPR lesson. What Amy lacks in lifesaving technique, she makes up for in humor.
Jimmy Fallon couldn’t help but notice that the world generally seems to be falling apart these days, especially whenever the evening news comes on. To help lift our spirits, he made up some good news. If only it were true! But hey, like Jimmy says, we’ll get through this together. Things have to get better eventually, right? [Gawker]
Apparently, I’m not alone in wishing Jared Leto would ditch that beard of his, and Jimmy Fallon was all too happy to offer a surprise shave to Leto during his “Tonight Show” interview. The horror in Jared’s eyes when Jimmy pulls out a razor isn’t enough to save him from a trim, whether he wants one or not. I only wish he’d gotten rid of the entire thing! [Fashionista]
