Shaq And Jimmy Fallon Got Down In This Lip Sync Battle, And Pitbull Could Not Control His Laughter

During last night’s episode of “The Tonight Show,” Jimmy Fallon decided to challenge Shaquille O’Neal to a lip sync battle. Little did Fallon know that Shaq had a special guest to help him out — PITBULL. Check out how it went down when this NBA Hall of Famer paired up with Mr. Worldwiiiide. ?

Jimmy Fallon got the lip sync battle started with the House of Pain classic “Jump Around.”

Shaq even brought a person from the audience onto the stage to werk it out.

But the lip sync battle was really over for Fallon once Shaq’s special guest appeared on the stage: PITBULL.

Of course there was no way for Fallon to compete against this dynamic duo.

And the best part about the lip sync battle wasn’t the lip syncing itself — it was Pitbull’s reactions.

I’ve never seen him leap to such altitudes just to give someone a high five.

He was just SO. HAPPY.

He was like a little kid all over again. ?

The entire night, Shaq had him smiling and laughing from ear to ear.

So it wouldn’t be a surprise if he was crying tears of joy underneath those sunglasses.

Watching Shaq carry Jimmy like a baby made Pitbull the happiest man on the Earth.

Detroit Millionaire Raises Money For Young Girl’s Funeral After She Died From Vicious Dog Attack

Detroit Millionaire Raises Money For Young Girl’s Funeral After She Died From Vicious Dog Attack

GoFundMe

On Monday morning, Emma Valentina Hernandez, 9, enjoyed a hearty breakfast, passed her back-to-school physical and spent the afternoon riding her bike in her Detroit neighborhood. That’s when three dogs, described as pit bulls by the police, attacked her in an alley. One of her neighbors heard her screaming and ran to the alley where she laid. Emma’s neighbors all tried to help save her, one even fired a gun and shot one of the dogs.

Her father, Armando, performed CPR on the scene. Today, he says he feels ’empty’ after paramedics were unable to save her. Emma died from her injuries.

Emma Hernandez’s family describes her as “a smart and silly girl… a beautiful soul inside and out.”

Emma leaves behind two brothers, ages 12 and 4, who will be returning to the Academy of the Americas without her next week. They’re currently with their abuela in Detroit while their parents grieve.

Just one week before Emma’s death, Armando got into a fight with the dogs’ owner over the inadequate fence enclosure.

He told Detroit News that he had warned the owner that his yard fence, the one his dogs eventually lept over to attack Emma, was too flimsy. Neighbors told the outlet that they had filed police reports about the dogs, who seemed too skinny, and were roaming the neighborhood freely.

The dog’s owner is in custody, and the dogs are likely going to be euthanized.

While a bullet didn’t stop the attack, a cement brick was finally enough to scare the dogs away.

“I went and grabbed a brick and threw it right at the dog,” neighbor Edward Cruz told CNN affiliate WXYZ. “They all ran and I stood next to the girl to make sure she was OK and I yelled out for help.”

That’s when Deborah Golden heard the screaming and ran to find Emma laying on her back with bite marks on her neck.

A neighbor quickly called on Armando to come help his daughter. Around the corner from his house, Emma laid in a pool of blood, with Golden performing CPR. Armando applied pressure to the wounds in her neck to help stop the bleeding. The injuries were too severe to be recovered from, and she died at the hospital.

Emma’s injuries were so appalling, counseling services were offered to emergency responders.

Detroit Police Department Captain Russel Solano told CNN affiliate WDIV, “It’s hard for me not to cry. It’s tough, real tough. We’re talking about a 9-year-old girl who was just out there playing, and now she’s not here.”

“This is her neighborhood. She should be able to be free,” tía and godmother to Emma, Claudia Stapleton told WDIV.

@freep / Twitter

“This is her neighborhood. She should be able to be free and do what every kid does — walk around, ride their bikes — they shouldn’t be afraid to be in their own neighborhood,” Claudia said, holding a photo of Emma in front of her family’s home and memorial. “This is just very devastating. Very, very hurtful for this family.”

A Detroit millionaire has helped raise nearly $50k for Emma’s funeral costs in less than 24 hours.

@pulte / Twitter

Claudia was on her way to the cemetery to help the family understand the funeral costs for her niece when a friend called to let her know that the funeral was paid for. Founder of The Blight Authority, Bill Pulte, shared the GoFundMe link. A few hours later, he tweeted again, to assure the family that he would personally make sure the family doesn’t have to pay for the funeral.

A warrant is pending for the dogs’ owners but has not been issued.

@wxyzdetroit / Twitter

The Detroit police are handling the investigation, and Detroit Police Chief James Craig is not mincing words in getting justice for Emma. “Certainly the owner has a responsibility when they have violent animals that those animals are to be secure at all times,” Craig said in a press conference Tuesday morning. “I believe that, and if you can’t secure the animal, you shouldn’t have the animal — period, not open for conversation.”

While many sympathizers for Emma have taken to Twitter to call for murder charges against the owner, the prosecutor’s office has not disclosed what charges they are considering.

Pitbull And John Travolta’s Bromance Started With Hair — Or The Lack Of It

While John Travolta’s elephant-trunk hairstyle had fans going wild in his role as Danny in the ‘70s classic “Grease,” he’s now sporting a bald look — and it’s all because of one Latinx megastar: Pitbull.

In an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with guest-host Lena Waithe, the actor announced that he decided to shave his head after the 305 cubano motivated him to do it.

“Both he and my family encouraged it,” the 65-year-old actor said of the “Timber” singer.

The hairless Hollywood legend went viral in January of 2019 when he first revealed his look to the masses in an Instagram post alongside his daughter, Ella Bleu.

I hope everyone had a great New Year!

“Your hair was pretty famous. You had this, like, beautiful mane. And then you guys posted this picture … people kind of went a little crazy, it went viral, were you expecting that,” Waithe, 35, asked the “Hairspray” star.

Somehow, the celeb who was widely beloved for his dark brown locks throughout his career, didn’t think changing up his aesthetic would prompt a reaction.

“No! It’s just a haircut,” he said.

Happy Mother’s Day Mom! I love and miss you

“The last time I went this viral was when I mispronounced Idina Menzel’s name at the Oscars,” he continued, referring to his gaffe as a presenter at the awards ceremony in 2014.

Travolta said the switch-up was “easier” than most people thought it would be because he had cut his hair before in his role in the 2010 film “‘From Paris with Love.”

“I got used to it. So it wasn’t a total shock,” the actor said.

Travolta, who was on the late night show with Ella Bleu to promote their movie together, “The Poison Rose,” said the best part of going bald was the community that came from it, particularly his new friendship with Pitbull.

“I became friends with Pitbull — you know all of us guys who do this have got to stick together,” he said.

“The Poison Rose,” a crime thriller about a heavy-drinking detective’s attempts to discover the truth behind the murder of a college quaterback, hits theaters Friday, May 24.
