Kumail Nanjiani and Idina Menzel were both guests on The Late Late Show yesterday and James Corden asked the Wicked singer, “Did you have a good night?” She asked him the same question and he told her that, “I’ve had the time of my life.” Then two of them broke out into the song from Dirty Dancing. Which was extremely odd, not only because his voice got extremely deep, but because it was just weird. I wasn’t the only one who thought so, Nanjiani’s face towards the end of the song proves he feels the same way. He’s like WTF did I sign up for and WTH did my publicist get me in to? Kumail, I am not quite sure.
Seriously, if it wasn’t for his expression, I would not have posted it. When I saw his face, I broke out in to uncontrollable laughter. Didn’t it make you laugh hysterically too because it is so unexpected? I know he is a comedian, but I think he meant to make that face.
Shhhh, don’t tell anyone, but Page Six is reporting that Rosario Dawson reportedly adopted a 12 year old girl in October. Not much more is known, but good for her for adopting an older child. That girl is going to be lucky to have her as a mom. Unless the Rent star shows her daughter her film Kids. I like her, but that detested that movie.
Taye Diggs posted some videos of him working a pole, and do you think he has what it takes to make it as a stripper? We obviously can see that he has the body for it, but he slides down a pole is slower than a virgin on top for her first time. Too crude? I am sorry, but it was the best analogy I could come up with. Can you do better?
Taye Diggs is recently divorced and he told Seth Meyers on Late Night yesterday that it has made him an emotional wreck. The actor explained to the NBC host that he acts like a woman suffering from PMS when the littlest things happen to him, like stubbing his toe. And you know what, even though the Murder in the First star might come off a little less masculine after sharing that information, he is still all man to me. The fact that he admitted that shows just how manly he truly is.
Now when it comes to Handsome, not Handsome Vine; let’s be real he’s always handsome. Although I have one request for him, don’t make those videos when you are driving right by my place on the highway I frequent.
Idina Menzel is having an interesting year. First, John Travolta mispronounced her name as the Oscars and yesterday she had a wardrobe malfunction while she was performing at Radio City Music Hall. Just as she was about to start singing Take Me or Leave Me from Rent, her boob decided to leave her dress. The audience told what was happening and she handled it perfectly. Once her boob was back in its place she told the crowd, “Well f*ck it, they’re real!” And that real reaction is why we love Adele Dazeem, I mean, Idina Menzel so much.
I’ve said this before and I will say it again. I am happy she is finally getting the press she deserves because she sincerely is one very talented lady.
Rosario Dawson and Katie Couric both showed up to the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday in off white lace dresses and I can’t decide who wore the over-sized doilies better? Do you prefer the newsanchor’s floor-length gown or the Rent star’s knee-length one? Or do you think both wash them out and make them look duller than Katie’s now cancelled daytime show? I think the latter!
On Saturday night, the cast of If/Then, that includes two castmembers from Rent’s original Broadway lineup, sang the song Seasons of Love to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Idina Menzel and Anthony Rapp raised $8,000 for the charity and along with their new castmates recaptured our hearts with the defining song.
Even though it has been 18 years since we first heard that tune, it is still just as timeless and it will never age. Even if it keeps counting the seconds in the year.
Ever since the Oscars, everyone has wanted to know what Idina Menzel thought of John Travolta introducing her as Adele Dazeem. Well, Billboard finally asked her about it and she told them she Let It Go. Actually what she said was that leading up to her performance she was very Zen and focused, that is until he botched up her name. His screw up threw her for a loop, but then she remembered when she was and got back on track singing the track. So what happened after the Oscars? She said that, “He was really gracious and sent this gorgeous email, and we’re buddies and it’s all cool.” Does she hold any resentment towards him? Nope, she also said, “Please. I mean, I’ve only benefited from it.”
That is so true, ever since the Oscars everyone knows her name, Adele Dazeem, I mean, Idina Menzel!
