Late night takes on Beyoncé’s ‘Lemonade,’ plus bonus Prince tribute
For as much talk as Beyoncé's "Lemonade" inspired over the weekend, it was inevitable that the visual album would still be making headlines when Monday's late-night programming rolled around.
Let's take a look at how the late-night heavy hitters interpret Queen Bey.
Stephen Colbert White-Mansplains: 'Lemonade'
If "Lemonade" is anything, it's a tale of empowerment for black women, so CBS' "The Late Show" decided to lean into the awkwardness of having Colbert analyze the album's greater themes and focused solely on translating "Lemonade" as a white man at his white man-iest.
'Lemonjames: A Visual Monologue'
James Corden took a very different tack on CBS' "The Late Late Show," deciding to go full-fledged parody, a curious choice when dealing with a subject matter full of deeply thematic and moving imagery.
For all of you eager to see Corden in bra and panties doing a Beyoncé impression, this video is for you.
Jimmy Kimmel explains 'Lemonade' via emoji
In the "Lemonade" take that proved to be the most fun, ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" attempted to translate Beyoncé's album and the ensuing controversy into the language of the people: emoji.
Jimmy Fallon talks Prince and pingpong
And, as a special bonus, Jimmy Fallon took time out of his Monday show to pay tribute to Prince, who died April 21, and share an extensive story that involves a new baby, pingpong and the Purple One. NBC's "The Tonight Show" was off last week, delaying Fallon's memorial until Monday.
