The Most Embarrassing Celeb Teenage Photos Just Raised $1M For Puerto Rico. Peep Them Here

Just when it seemed all hope was lost, Lin-Manuel Miranda showed up with a #PuberMe video to save the day.

Stephen Colbert and comedian Nick Kroll wrapped up their #PuberMe challenge to raise funds for Puerto Rico. The #PuberMe challenge called on celebrities to share photos of themselves during that awkward puberty phase. Colbert, who pledged to donate $1,000 for every photo shared, raised $233,000 just from celebrities sharing their photos. Then, Kroll called Colbert and offered $100,000 more thanks to the people who work on Kroll’s Netflix show “Big Mouth.” Colbert then announced that CBS was matching the money raised by Kroll and Colbert, bringing the total up to $666,000. Kroll called it the “devil’s donation,” so Colbert offered up another $266,000 to make up for it. Kroll didn’t want to be outdone, so he threw in another $67,000 dollars.

For everyone at home doing the math, that brings the total up to $999,000. As they lamented how close they were to raising $1 million, Lin-Manuel Miranda showed up and offered to help to make up the last $1,000. Miranda shared a video from his teenage years where he sang about returning to Puerto Rico. If you want to see a 13-year-old Lin-Manuel Miranda sing about visiting Puerto Rico and hating New York City, check out the video above. Congrats on the #PuberMe success, Stephen.

Colbert’s donations come from the AmeriCone Dream Fund which was created by Colbert and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.

“Do marshmallows have feelings?”

Only a couple of months after their first appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” podcasters and TV hosts Desus and Mero returned to the show to discuss some of their most “fuego” takes of the moment. The Bronx-bred duo were on to plug the new Netflix series “Neo Yokio,” an anime parody starring Jaden Smith which features Desus and Mero as the characters Gottlieb and Lexy, respectively. Fallon, who usually spends his interviews slapping his desk and telling guests they’re “the best,” took this interview in the same direction he did the first: he turned the segment into an impromptu episode of Viceland’s “Desus & Mero,” asking the pair to give their takes on various topics, including apple picking, the new iPhone and their beloved New York Yankees. And of course, the duo wasted no time sharing their most scorching takes, like this gem about apple picking: “Apple picking is fun until you realize it’s one of the stupidest things you can do.”
