She Straight Up Turned This Sad Song Into An Instant Salsa Classic

THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON / NBC

Salma Hayek never ceases to amaze.

In her recent appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” the 50-year-old actress revealed her love of turning sad songs into something more… danceable, like her character does in her latest movie, “Beatriz at Dinner.” Hayek told the audience, “When I’m sad, I take a sad song and I turn it into a salsa […] and then it puts you in a good mood.” Luckily for the audience, Fallon had some sad songs already picked, “just in case” Hayek wanted to try one out. Hayek picked “All By Myself,” by Eric Carmen.

Hayek was nervous at first…

It’s a very difficult song to sing, let alone dance and sing too.

…but it’s safe to say she found her groove.

Rosario Dawson Didn’t Hold Back In Her Late Show With Stephen Colbert Appearance

THE LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT / CBS

Rosario Dawson recently joined “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” to talk about a number of things, from her love life to her role in the Marvel universe.

First on the list of topics was Dawson’s connection to Prince. The 37-year-old recounted the time her mother embarrassed her in front of The Purple One, calling him an “alien.”

Totally a mom thing to do, embarrassing you in front of one of one of the greatest musical icons ever.

Though she was horrified, Dawson’s mom meant it as a compliment, as in Prince is so talented he’s got to be from another planet. Things turned out for the best, however, as Prince actually ended up hanging out till the next day and even made them pancakes. Not a bad story.

Colbert then brought up Dawson’s recent love connection with comedian Eric Andre.

Colbert brought up the skepticism people had when Andre and Dawson first went public with their romance.

Chance the Rapper actually called up Dawson to find out if it was a prank, to which she replied, “That’s my man.”


To prove they were actually an item, Andre insisted on taking tongue-touching photos. Dawson who is a 37, called out Andre for being “such a millennial” when it came to social media PDA.

Being the boss that she is, Dawson agreed to prove to the world they were together.

In case you’re wondering, they’re still very much together. Dawson went on to praise Andre for how healthy he actually is. After a recent medical emergency, Andre got Dawson into legit meditation, eating healthier, and even journaling, saying, “he’s got me taking care of myself.” Andre even took care of Dawson when she had to wear a diaper after the surgery, to which both Colbert and Dawson agreed, “that is love.”

The conversation then turned to what Dawson thought her role would entail in the Marvel universe.

Dawson, who plays Claire Temple in multiple Netflix-Marvel originals – “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones,” “Luke Cage,” “Iron Fist,” and “The Defenders,” originally thought she was going to get some kind of amazing superpower for her role, but that didn’t pan out like she thought. Her character is a nurse, but as Dawson informed the audience, her superpower is, “my superpower is being an awesome human, with great resources, who uses them and tools…”

“…That’s a real hero and heroine.”
