As Michelle Obama prepares to make her final exit out of The White House, The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon had to do a proper send off for our First Lady that included a serenade by Stevie Wonder.

“When I think about the fact that some of them are afraid about what’s to come … I don’t want them to be afraid,” Michelle says during Wednesday’s show. “I want them to embrace the future and know that the world is getting better. We have bumps in the road, we have ups and downs. But I want our kids to move forward, I don’t care where they come from, with strength and with hope.”

 

“I didn’t think it was going to be that emotional. It’s been surprisingly emotional for all of us in ways that we didn’t expect.” She adds.

 

Fallon took the time to express his thanks to our First Lady during his epic “Thank You Notes” segment.

“Thank you, Mrs. Obama, for being a smart, strong, independent woman, an activist, a style icon, and a great dancer. And showing us all what it would look like if Beyoncé had married a much nerdier Jay Z,” Fallon joked.

 

“That’s my boo! Mom jeans and all.” Michelle replies with laughter.

In this next video, The First Lady shares how emotional it has been to say goodbye after eight years as FLOTUS and why one of her daughters, Sasha, missed her dad’s last presidential speech.


A statue of Shaquille O’Neal will be the newest addition to the statue of icons outside the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. 

On Wednesday, The Los Angeles Lakers organization announced that they will honor O’Neal with a statue that will be unveiled during the 2016-17 season.

We look forward to having Shaq join the other legends who have been honored with statues at STAPLES Center,” Jeanie Buss, Lakers president and co-owner, said in a statement. “He is a giant not only in size, but also in stature and in what he accomplished as a Laker. Shaq literally broke the ground for the site, and was hugely responsible for not only getting STAPLES Center built, but for making it one of the most successful and famous arenas in the world. It’s an honor that is well deserved.”

 

Jimmy Kimmel surprised Shaq with the great news on his late night show.

When I watched this, I had one of those hearty, hard-to-breathe laughs!

I haven’t cried tears of laughter in such a long time and this has definitely helped!

On a recent episode of Conan, Conan helps a staff member with her driving skills (and etiquette). With the help of Kevin Hart & Ice Cube, the stars of Ride Along & Ride Along 2, Diana is bound to be the best weed smokin’, Popeyes-eatin’, drive-by shootin’, black nerd-lovin’ driver in the world…LOL

You have to see it!

Press play and be ready to get a good laugh!

Friday, November 13th, 2015, all four members of the legendary Hip Hop Group A Tribe Called Quest, namely Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Jarobi tore up the stage at The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon with their reunion performance of the classic  “Can I Kick It?”.  Their performance was a celebration of the 25th-anniversary deluxe edition of their debut album, People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm. Performing on Fallon is the group’s first time together on stage in 15 years.

Tribe did what they do best when they’re live on stage and that’s getting the people on their feet and boppin’ their heads! I caught a couple of the white dudes in suits in the front row…LOL

Man, I gotta tell you….we need this album reissued for us to be reminded of how Hip Hop used to be. We need to be exposed to the kind of Hip Hop that made us fans of Hip Hop in the first place. A Tribe Called Quest’s lyrical content/delivery and instrumentation behind their lyrics made us appreciate jazz-influenced Hip Hop with substance and maturity.
