Rick Springfield is promoting his new movie Ricki and the Flash, and yesterday he talked about it on Jimmy Kimmel Live. To make his appearance more interesting, he brought along some never before seen video. That video was a band rehearsal he did in 1980 for the biggest song of his career, Jessie’s Girl. Before it was a huge hit, it was in the development phase.
You get to see him perform the song with his band for the first time, and we finally find out who that song was written about.
So if you are like me and have wanted to know who is Jessie’s Girl, well now we know. Did that revelation make you Bop ‘Til You Drop or do you wish he was going to love somebody else?

Kaitlyn Bristowe picked her bachelor on The Bachlorette yesterday and that means she is going to get married. What does every bride need? She needs a wedding gown and Jimmy Kimmel and Guillermo took her dress shopping.
Which of course was an interesting experience to say the least. When the saleslady said to Kaitlyn, “We have different colors. Are you thinking a non-traditional color?” The ABC late night host stopped her and said, “Hold on, can I just interrupt for a second? I think that’s very rude, have you been watching the show? Is that why you told her she can’t wear white dress?” He of course was referring to her sleeping with Nick and then choosing another man to be her fiance’.
But let’s move past that since Sean B did. She tried on a few dresses and then the men tried on a few bridesmaids dresses. In fact, Kimmel put on Kaitlyn’s leather leggins. He was able to get into them, but not out of them. Good thing Guillermo was there to get him out of them. Is it just me or does it feel like that wasn’t the first time they got themselves into that situation.
Back to Kaitlyn, good thing she found a dress because I don’t think that leggins will ever fit her again.
I think of Apple as a cult. As in, they come up with something new and people will buy it. They might not need the newest version of the iPhone, the iPad, the iPod, the iWatch or whatever else they come up with, but they have to have it no matter how much it costs.
Yesterday, Apple released a music subscription service for $9.99 month and people subscribed because it is Apple’s new product.
Well, it isn’t. Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, they debuted the hottest, new, must-have from Apple and it will only cost you $20 a month. What is it? They don’t know, they just want your money. And you know what, people who are part of the iCult, have already starting sending in their dinero. Have you?
Last week the Supreme Court made Same-Sex Marriage legal all over the United States and several people wondered how do you explain it to the kids. So Jimmy Kimmel Live went out on to the streets of Hollywood and asked kids if they know what gay marriage is. Not only do they know what it is, they don’t care. They think that everyone should get married if they want to.
What makes this video so precious is when the interviewer asked them why people should get married and if they plan on tying the knot some day. Watch the segment all the way through because the last kid is going to grow up to be a great divorce lawyer or the World’s Best Husband! You tell me.
There are certain holidays that Jimmy Kimmel Live likes to destroy for people like Halloween, April Fool’s Day and Father’s Day and yesterday was no exemption. The ABC late night host asked his viewers to surprise their dads in the shower with breakfast. He asked the offspring to serve it him in there, and many of them threw it on their sperm donors. To say the naked men weren’t happy would be an understatement.
Out of all the viral dares that JKL has done throughout the years, I think this one is the worst. Not in as it’s so bad, it’s funny. But as in it totally didn’t work and was just mean. Did you think it was funny or plain cruel?
Before Kobe Bryant was one the top players in the NBA getting tons of endorsement deals, he was just a Rookie in the NBA guest starring on TNBC’s Hang Time. You could totally tell the 19 year old was going to be a star from that 1997 episode.
BTW here is Anthony Anderson telling Jimmy Kimmel how he asked Kobe to guest star on the show, and who he had to ask to get the legendary basketball player to do it.
Father’s Day is just two days away, and what better way to celebrate it than to tell your dad a secret you’ve never told him. Actually, that is a bad idea unless you are walking on Hollywood Blvd and Jimmy Kimmel Live asks you do it. That is what happened to several fathers and their offspring as they were walking all over the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
How did the dads react to their pride and joys telling them about the tattoo they got a year ago, the house party that was shut down by cops and what really happened to the bathroom walls that caused them to redo the boudoir? You just have to watch because their expressions say it all. And let’s just there are a bunch of people who are exchanging the Ties they bought their dads for iWatches as we speak.
The cast of Magic Mike XXL were on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday and the ABC late night host asked them whose family member will be most traumatized by seeing this movie. Adam Rodriguez was the first to answer the question and he said he was concerned about his grandmother. Then he explained why, “She took a group of her friends at the senior housing that she lives in, when the first one came out.” Adding, “My proud grandmother walks in with 15 or so of her closest 85 year old friends. She is going to see her grandson in a big movie.” As soon as the movie ended, she called him to say, “Little baby why did you that to me? I was so embarrassed. I took all my friends to see this, you’re shaking your a$$.”
When he was done telling the story, he declared, “It’s not your grandmama’s movie.” The cast quickly disagreed with that statement. In fact, Kevin Nash found the positive effect if they go, when he said, “It knocks the blockage out.”
So if your grandmother needs to get that blockage out, then take her to see Magic Mike XXL. Heck, make grandma really happy and take her to see it and then to take her to a male strip club to see the real thing. You can put all of those singles she has been sending in your birthday card for years to good use! Let granny go crazy!
As we all know Jimmy Kimmel and Matt Damon hate each other and can’t wait to make fun of the other one. Earlier this week, the trailer came out for Damon’s latest movie The Martian and the ABC late night host had some fun with it. Not as much as Jason Borne does in it, but a lot. Why do I say that? Just watch Jimmy Kimmel Live‘s version of it called The Mastronaut: Emission to Mars. Need I say more?
Oh and I should warn you, if you watch it, you will not be able to get Violent Femmes’ Blister in the Sun out of your head.
Tonight at 11:35p on CBS, David Letterman is saying goodbye to late night after 33 years, a third of a century. Not only has he influenced many people, he has been a big part of all of the remaining talk show hosts’ lives. Jimmy Kimmel was obsessed with him since he was a teenager. Conan O’Brien would still not be on the air had Letterman not come on to Late Night to save it. Ellen DeGeneres and Jimmy Fallon were guests on his show when they were starting out. Finally, Seth Meyers wouldn’t have a show if Jay Leno didn’t screw Letterman out of The Tonight Show.
So in the last few days, all of the above took time out of their shows to rightfully salute their hero. So watch them pay tribute to the man who they all have to thank for their jobs. Without him Kimmel would still be doing radio, Conan would be writing for The Simpsons, Fallon would be doing unwatchable movies, Ellen would have another sitcom and Meyers would still be on Saturday Night Live. Come to think of it… Joking, they are all better when they are!
