How I Wrote That Album


Sivan talks about how he wrote his album Blue Neighbourhood on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. This is a web exclusive for The Tonight Show’s YouTube channel.

I wrote it in a lot of places like garages and apartments and bedrooms and hotel rooms and stuff like that. One of the songs the power went out during the writing session in the hotel room and we had a bus show up outside that was powering the whole hotel and I’m pretty sure you can still hear in the song a very low hum of this bus.

Trump – Clinton call skit


Clinton chats with Fallon, playing Trump, in a skit on The Tonight Show. 

Clinton: What is your stance on women’s issues.
Fallon/Trump: I know a lot of women and they have issues.

When Fallon/Trump makes fun of Sanders’s lack of hair, Clinton:

Yeah, well, at least he doesn’t have one strand that he twirls over his head like a soft-serve at Dairy Queen.

Tonight Show interview


Trump is interviewed by Fallon on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. On talking without notes:

I’m blessed with a great memory. If you’re reading a speech, it’s much easier, but you don’t get the feeling. When you do it just off the cuff, it’s a riskier thing, but when you get it right, it’s a thing of beauty.

On Kanye West:

Kanye has been so nice to me. He always says great things to me, so I love Kanye. I love people who are nice to me. Kanye is actually, I know him a little bit, he’s actually a much nicer person than people think. Now if he happens to run for office, and I’m running against him, I’m gonna take that back.

Fallon skit


Fallon plays Trump talking to himself in the dressing room mirror while Trump plays his reflection.

Let’s be honest. Fallon’s a lightweight. The only one qualified to interview me is me.

Explains finger injury

Makes Statement

Fallon returns to The Tonight Show after a 10-day hospitalization and explains his finger injury. What he thought was a broken finger was actually a ring avulsion injury, and he was sent to another hospital for specialized microsurgery. Many people with the same injury lose their finger. The six-hour surgery involved taking a vein from his foot to help repair the finger.

I tripped and fell in our kitchen on a braided rug that my wife loves. I can’t wait to burn it to the ground. And I caught my fall. So I’m getting up and my finger is sideways. It looks like a cheap horror movie.

This is no ordinary Karoke, this is Nonsense Karoke…We are going to take turns singing well known songs, but here is the catch. All the lyrics have been replaced with odd and an usual sentences, basically nonsense.

Kelly Clarkson is on the show tonight and she’s awesome. I was actually reading a piece last week that says she’s been having trouble finding people to do duets with her. I don’t understand what they’re talking about I would love to do a duet with Kelly Clarkson!

Plays air guitar

TV Appearance

Cooper performs air guitar to Young’s solo Down By the River on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.

When I was a kid I had a lot of time on my hands and there’s this one song by Neil Young. I don’t know if everybody knows this, and I’m sort of proud that I know it. It’s just the guitar solo from Down by the River, to air guitar to it is so meaningless, but I’d love to give you a little taste. It’s long!
