11:35 pm
>> that is our repor >> lou: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight, tyler perry, usher, and music from ari lennox. and now, jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: thank you very much. hi, guillermo. very nice, thank you. welcome. relax, i appreciate it. i'm jimmy, i am the host of the show. thank you for watching at home. thank you for joining us here in freezing los angeles, california. it was cold today, right? i almost called you up to come to my office and cuddle for warmth.
11:36 pm
[ laughter ] >> guillermo: jimmy, i'm always ready for cuddle. >> jimmy: i know, he's like my hot agua bottle. [ laughter ] as the eyes of the world are on ukraine, a small but determined group of american truckers is traveling cross-country to protest joe biden's pandemic policy. i like that truckers are traveling cross-country to protest. isn't that what they do all the time? [ laughter ] might as well throw a load in and make some money off it. [ laughter ] biden announced he was extending the national state of emergency last week, but the truckers want him to end it, because they believe the pandemic is over. the point of the protest is unclear. they say they want to end mandates everywhere and "restore our nation's constitution." i think they just got jealous of the canadian truckers getting all the attention. [ laughter ] they're calling themselves "the people's convoy." their journey started about an hour and a half from here in adelanto, california. they're planning to meet up in d.c. in ten days, where they will presumably stage some kind of rally. and get out to pee. [ laughter ]
11:37 pm
this is their route. as you can see, they're going thataway. and they're off to a great start. one of the convoys is behind schedule because the lead truck got two flat tires the first day. probably one of them vaccine needles poked a hole in the tires. [ laughter and applause ] in this country we have truckers who are so angry, they're trucking. [ laughter ] we've still got qanon waiting for jfk and rooting for the russians. which, as we know, would be right up jfk's alley. he loved those russians. [ laughter ] the latest batch of crazy from the q klux klan is that they are largely on team putin. they've been praising russia's invasion of ukraine. which is confusing. the russian alphabet doesn't even have a "q." [ laughter ] but they're all over this. one of the q'ers who has been leading the russian cheerleading squad is a woman named romana didulo. she believes herself to be the queen of canada. which to me seems a weird way to tell the world you don't have 20 bucks. [ laughter ]
11:38 pm
this is good too. not only are these knuckleheads in dallas waiting for jfk, this is pastor bob joyce. so this weekend, some of these guys who believe bob joyce is an 87-year-old elvis presley -- [ laughter ] they believe that he's still alive and he's this guy. [ laughter ] which he's quite clearly not elvis. he, in fact, is kenny rogers. [ laughter and applause ] you've got your legends mixed up. i don't know. i have to say, i know they're nuts, but it must be kind of fun to be in qanon. they think an invasion of ukraine is being led by jfk and michael jackson driving a russian tank. [ laughter ] and it's not just the nutjobs, unfortunately. according to a new poll from yougov, republicans, american republicans, have a more favorable view of vladimir putin than joe biden. 15% of republicans say they have a very or somewhat favorable view of putin. compared to 10% for biden. >> what is this really about?
11:39 pm
why do i hate putin so much? has putin ever called me a racist? has he threatened to get me fired for disagreeing with him? has he shipped every middle-class job in my town to russia? did he manufacture a worldwide pandemic that wrecked my business and kept me indoors for two years? is he teaching my children to embrace racial discrimination? is he making fentanyl? is he trying to snuff out christianity? does he eat dogs? these are fair questions, and the answer to all of them is no. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i see. so in order for you to despise a man who murders his rivals. who are who murders and poisons people and is actively trying to destablize our country, he has to do something to you personally. he has to eat your dog. [ laughter ] that makes sense. thanks, tuck. thanks for asking all those very dumb questions and then answering them. [ laughter ] i want to see the tape putin has on him because it has to be something special. [ applause ] seriously. how did we go from being a
11:40 pm
country that hated communism since well before i was born, how did we go from being the country that made "red dawn" and "rocky iv" to this? it boggles the mind. can you imagine ronald reagan turning on fox news and hearing this? he would strangle his monkey. [ laughter ] he would. and tucker carlson. he knows what he's doing. he knows this is garbage he's feeding these people. i'll tell you. between tucker carlson and "pam & tommy," this really is the golden age of talking dicks on television. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] meanwhile, president biden is busy looking for a new supreme court justice. he's pretty far along, already up to the hometown dates. [ laughter ] biden has reportedly met with three highly qualified candidates. judge ketanji brown jackson of washington d.c., associate justice leondra kruger of california, and judge sofia p. vergara of "america's got talent." [ laughter ] [ cheers ] this is kind of a weird detail, two of the three judges on biden's list, this is true, are married to gastroenterologists.
11:41 pm
when you get to be joe's age, you can never have too many colon guys. [ laughter ] biden put out a statement laying out the qualities he's looking for in a supreme court justice. he wants someone with a keen understanding of the constitution, comprehensive knowledge of jurisprudence, someone who will do everything in his/her power to get "hawaii five-0" back on the air. the old one. with jack lord. [ laughter ] must always have a bowl of hard lemon candy. [ laughter ] strong pinocle player. and a gal who puts her britches on one gam at a time. [ laughter ] he's taking his time picking it. which is in sharp contrast to how trump picked his nominees, which was to write a bunch of names on paper, flush them down the toilet, and whichever one floated back up, supreme court. [ laughter and applause ] see all those crypto ads during the super bowl? there could soon a crypto-owned nfl team. a group of "crypto enthusiasts" is teaming up to try to buy the denver broncos.
11:42 pm
changing its name to the "denver bored apes." i don't know. [ laughter ] the group is trying to raise $4 billion using something called a "decentralized autonomous organization" or "dao." which is described as being like an internet community with a shared bank account. which -- i don't know, that is good? imagine if everyone on facebook had a shared bank account. [ laughter ] someone's aunt would use all the money to buy a hummel figurine or something. [ laughter ] imagine if this happens? what a great way to lure free agents to denver. "we can't pay you in cash. not our thing. we can give you a virtual cartoon giraffe." [ laughter ] "now go get 'em!" if the sale goes through, 4 billion crypto dollars would set the record for biggest sale of an american sports franchise. meanwhile, you can get the jets for 50,000 spirit airlines miles. [ laughter and applause ] president biden is expected to issue an executive order this week that would commission a study into digital currency. and if i know joe biden, the immediate future of
11:43 pm
crypto-banking is not bright. >> hey, america. it's your old pal, joey b. i don't need to tell you that the world's changing fast. a little too darn fast, if you ask me, jack. everything's putting their dough in bitchcoin this, kleptocurrency that. trouble is, there are no laws to keep those investments safe. if you're the kind of dude who wants to keep your money safe and out of the hands of the government, save the way my mom and dad did, in a coffee can full of nickels, hidden under your mattress, just about the safest investment there is. first of all, it's a coffee can. those suckers seal up tight. second, there's no sweeter treasure than a tub of shiny nickels. as long as there are general stores selling candy buttons, nickels are going to be worth a whole hell of a lot. third, it's under your mattress. come on, man. that's like your own cushy fort
11:44 pm
knox. nobody's checking under there, not even mr. taxman. this investment appreciates in value. sometimes i open my coffee can, it feels like there's a hell of a lot more nickels in there than before, like they're having nickel babies in there. act now, you also get a bill may malarkey card for the spokes of your bicycle, absolutely free! [ applause ] >> this offer for those who still use dial-up internet. >> jimmy: oh, he's got mail. this is something i'm surprised biden hasn't weighed in on. on top of everything else we have to worry about, now we've got alcoholic mountain dew. [ cheers ] >> jimmy: oh! from florida? [ laughter ] mountain dew yesterday launched a new libation they're calling "hard mountain dew." also known as mountain dui. [ laughter ] they're rolling it out in three states. tennessee, florida, and iowa. florida i get. tennessee makes sense too. how did iowa make the list? [ laughter ] what are you naughty little
11:45 pm
hawkeyes up to? they've got a new product. if you can't find the hard mountain dew, they've got the meth-laced fun dip for the kids. [ moans and applause ] guillermo, maybe instead of tequila, you bring some of that to the oscar red carpet? >> guillermo: i like the tequila better. >> jimmy: the oscars are happening just over a month from now. and in order to cut down on the length of the show, they have decided to hand out some of the technical awards before the television broadcast starts. the categories that will not get the usual live on-air treatment are documentary short, makeup, hairstyling, original score, production design, animated short, live action short, sound, and editing. it does feel ironic for the editors to be cut out of the show. [ laughter ] but how could they do this? i mean, who could forget that magical moment in 1975 when ron alleged pierce and melvin metcalf won best sound for earthquake? [ laughter ] i think they should go even further with this, boil it down to best actor, best actress, and
11:46 pm
best picture, and we can all get to sleep. the oscars aren't the only awards show happening across the street. on saturday, the 53rd annual naacp image awards are taking place at the dolby theater. which got me thinking, with it being black history month and all, about how far we've come. as far as bringing people together goes. this is something we did back in 2015, and i'll be honest, the results back then weren't great. so we did it again to see if we're headed in the right direction. we went out on hollywood boulevard to ask pedestrians of the caucasian variety, "do you have a black friend?" this is how it works. we're going to see someone introduce themselves, based solely on the introduction we'll guess if that person has a black friend. does everyone understand? [ cheers ] >> jimmy: okay. our first pedestrian is? >> what's your name? >> my name is ellen. >> hi, ellen. do you have a black friend? >> jimmy: what do we think? almost everyone says no. except for one woman says yes. let's find out. >> yes, i do. >> what's their name?
11:47 pm
>> mariah. >> do you have more than one black friend? >> jimmy: does she have more than one black friend? now we're pushing it, let's see. >> maybe three. >> what are the other two names? >> okay, hm. [ laughter ] okay, i have a friend named naomi. and i have a friend named -- um -- okay. two. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i'm going to put you down for one. next up? >> what's your name? >> emily. >> do you have a black friend? >> jimmy: does emily have a black friend? everyone says yes. >> no. i mean, yeah, maybe. i don't know. >> maybe? >> i mean, yes, i do. i don't necessarily keep in contact with them right now. but yes. >> jimmy: he's an imaginary friend. [ laughter ] our next white person is? >> hi. >> hello. >> what's your name?
11:48 pm
>> mayan. >> do you have a black friend? >> jimmy: does mayan have a black friend? all right, let's find out. >> not in australia. >> no. >> in canada. >> you have a black friend in canada? >> i do. >> what's their name? >> i haven't seen them in a long time. i did at university. i've lost touch and i'm really bad with names. >> oh, the old "i have a black friend in canada" routine. [ laughter ] all right, our next pedestrian is? >> hi. >> hello. >> what's your name? >> cameron. >> cameron, do you have a black friend? >> jimmy: immediately everyone says yes. >> i do. >> what's their name? >> christie. she's right there. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> what's christie's last name? >> i have no clue. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: he was doing so well.
11:49 pm
she waved and everything. all right, who's next? >> hi, what's your name? >> hi, i'm story. >> story, do you have a black friend? >> jimmy: what is story's story? all right, she's got tattoos. does she have a black friend? >> yes. >> what's their name? >> well, i have many. >> how many? >> 15? >> i don't even have 15. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: 15? maybe she's friends with the lakers. 15, that's good. let's meet another one. >> how's it going? >> going good. >> what's your name? >> my name's stezie. >> do you have a white friend? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: it's a twist. do we think stezie has a white friend? >> uh -- i have a lot of white friends, yeah. i would say that's why i talk like this. [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> jimmy: that's so stezie. all right. we have one more. >> what's your name? >> nadal. >> nadal? do you have a black friend?
11:50 pm
>> jimmy: nadal, does he? all right, let's find out. >> yeah. i have -- >> yeah? >> yeah. >> i'm not shocked. black people love "scarface." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: well, all right. i think we're making progress, right? [ cheers and applause ] i don't know. all i know is we found some pretty sweet shorts. [ laughter ] we have a good show for you tonight. usher is here with us tonight. [ cheers and applause ] we have music from ari lennox tonight. we'll be right back with tyler perry!

>> jimmy: you look good. >> i'm good, thank you, how are you? >> jimmy: i like that jacket, it looks sharp. >> thank you very much. i try. >> jimmy: i'm doing well. not as well as you, of course. last time you were here, i don't know if you remember, it was right after you'd opened your big studio in atlanta. >> that you didn't come, to the big party. >> jimmy: the big party. >> yeah, that one. i remember. i'm still scarred from it. you said you would send me a gift, i still don't have a gift, where's the gift? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: did i say that? >> you didn't come, you didn't send a gift, where's the gift? >> jimmy: go to the hollywood souvenir store next door and get something. >> grab something real quick. >> guillermo: i'll grab something real quick. >> jimmy: i apologize for that, i don't know what i was doing. oh, covid. i think covid maybe was happening. >> this is before covid. >> jimmy: oh. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i knew it was coming. >> you knew it was coming, you were ahead of it all. you and aunt chippy were somewhere, yeah. >> jimmy: i figured it must have been intended to jimmy fallon or something. why would i be invited to your party? >> it said jimmy kimmel, i did a special video to you, saying please come. i don't know how you could have mistaken.
11:57 pm
>> jimmy: yes, now i'm remembering all of this. >> now you remember why you haven't invited me back since then to give you a hard time. [ laughter ] it's all good, man. it's all good. >> jimmy: now you're adding to this huge complex that you built. >> yeah. >> jimmy: how many acres are you adding to it? >> it's 330 acres, i bought 37 acres in front too for an entertainment district, i'm pretty excited for it. >> jimmy: that means an area for people to come and enjoy -- >> yeah. >> jimmy: at universal studios, there's universal city walk in front of it. >> exactly, exactly what i was thinking. so many people come to the gates who can't get in that want to see. so i'm telling you, thousands of people are coming to the gates. i've got to do something to invite them in. covid hit, we had to take a pause on it, now we're back at it. >> jimmy: have you ever thought of opening a full-fledged tyler perry theme park? i have not, i think the madea ride would be weird, going up her dress. [ laughter ] i don't know if people want to do that. i don't think i have enough product to make that work. >> jimmy: "forbes" last year put you on the list of billionaires.
11:58 pm
they list all the billionaires, there you were on it. [ cheers and applause ] did you know that you were going to be on that list? >> they'll call you up and say -- you know what they do, they call around, they talk to everybody you work with, they try to get an estimate of what's going on. >> jimmy: i see. >> they tell you, you're going to be on this list. there's some people, yeah, man, put me on the list! i'm going, uh -- >> jimmy: that's a weird donald trump impersonation. [ laughter ] >> pretty good, right? well, for me, you know, i'm grateful to be doing well. but for me, i just wanted to do well and take care of my mother and all this other stuff has happened. so i'm grateful. >> jimmy: you didn't want to be on that list, did you? >> it's pretty interesting. you start getting some weird phone calls. >> jimmy: oh, really? >> i'm your cousin from so-and-so, i need a kidney transplant. i don't know you, i've never heard of you, you don't need a kidney transplant, why are you drinking so much? [ laughter ] you know what i mean? >> jimmy: yeah, that's not something you necessarily want called out.
11:59 pm
although it's pretty great to be a billionaire, i would imagine. >> yeah, but i mean, if you were like -- i mean, who wants to -- everybody to say, okay, here's what you made last year, let's put it on the list. if you worked at forward or something, you don't want that in the magazine for everybody to see. >> jimmy: well, depends on who you are. some of these guys get very upset if they're not in the magazine. >> some people do, i don't. i'm okay with not being there. >> jimmy: you have -- how many people work for you in your empire? >> hm. right now, i think we're approaching 600. >> jimmy: 600 people? >> yeah. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: and many more when you take up a movie or something like that. >> yeah, if i add it all up, all the people, it's in the thousands. but every day through the studio gates, at least 3,500 people come to work. >> jimmy: how would they describe you as a boss? >> it depends who you ask. [ laughter ] like, the executives who work very closely with me, they see the best and worst of me. they're my generals, right? >> jimmy: uh-huh? >> then i've got other people that work for me that i have great fun with, you know. i'm a prankster.
12:00 am
so they clearly say that i'm a prankster. >> jimmy: you will pull pranks on your staff? >> it's really good, too, yeah, yeah. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: are they allowed to do stuff to you? >> no, no. [ laughter ] no, but i tell you who does. somebody pranks me once, i still cannot get over it. my phone rings. this facetime. i answer. stevie wonder, he's facetiming me. [ laughter ] i kid you not. and he's staring right at the camera. i'm going -- and i do this to see if he can actually see me. he's a big prankster, man. you get a facetime from stevie wonder, he's a big prankster. >> jimmy: lionel richie told me that once he was with stevie somewhere, they were getting in the car, stevie got in the driver's seat and told lionel to get in the passenger seat. >> that's right, that's stevie. >> jimmy: then started driving backwards. >> yep, yeah. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: this guy is having more fun with being blind than anyone ever. [ laughter ] >> that's right, that's right. he says, i'm not blind, it's a gimmick. no, stevie, you're actually blind.
12:01 am
[ laughter ] wait, wait. you got lionel richie tomorrow? >> jimmy: yeah, he'll be here tomorrow. >> ask him about smoking the joint with bob marley. >> jimmy: oh. >> somewhere in jamaica, he smoked a joint. please ask him to tell you that story. >> jimmy: i will ask him that. he's usually pretty careful about not talking about that stuff, i'm glad you revealed that. >> i guess i said too much. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: it's all right. >> you've got to ask him now. >> jimmy: maybe that's how he came up with "jambadesaylamoya." >> yeah, say the word. >> jimmy: jambasaydemoya? note jumbo jumbo ♪ >> okay, varying with what the words are. >> jimmy: close enough? >> they know what we're talking about. >> jimmy: right, exactly. are you dating right now? >> no. >> jimmy: why not? >> i don't like it. [ laughter ] no, the rules are different now, man. you know, now you get instagram and dms and all the stuff, people send you stuff and say,
12:02 am
let's have sex. can i take you to dinner first? can i get to know your name? >> jimmy: i bet they would eat. [ laughter ] >> yeah. >> jimmy: what's going on here? this to me, you know what this says? this is a man who says, look at my biceps, they're stuffed with money. [ laughter ] line up, ladies! >> no. >> jimmy: let's go! >> no, you've got to read the caption. i was in the gym, had an incident, i gained some weight since then. >> jimmy: yeah. >> it's called -- you heard of a thirst trap. that's called a thirst-piration, expire at the same time. >> jimmy: thirst-piration, i like that. when we come back, we'll see a clip from tyler's new movie. tyler perry is here with us!

12:10 am
>> yeah, yeah. yeah, started in 1999. so to have all these years of, you know -- selling out arenas all over the place. i would tell some of these jokes years ago, and -- here's a great story. i was telling a joke about rosa parks in my show "diary of a mad black woman." rosa parks actually saw it and loved it, right? she loved this joke. the joke is about the reason she didn't get off the bus is madea was waiting at the bus stop to beat her up for stealing her man, that's why she didn't get off the bus. [ laughter ] i put it in the movie. to think that rosa loved and it it gave her joy. that was really great. >> jimmy: you heard from her family? >> i still know her caregiver who took care of her for many, many years. >> jimmy: unbelievable. >> yeah. >> jimmy: that's a thrill to hear something like that, right? >> yeah. >> jimmy: what could be better than that? >> yeah, yeah.

a quick change in my plans is no big deal. don't receive cabenuva if you're allergic to its ingredients or taking certain medicines, which may interact with cabenuva. serious side effects include allergic reactions, post-injection reactions, liver problems, and depression. if you have a rash and other allergic reaction symptoms, stop cabenuva and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have liver problems or mental health concerns, and if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or considering pregnancy. some of the most common side effects include injection-site reactions, fever, and tiredness. if you switch to cabenuva, attend all treatment appointments. every other month and i'm good to go. ask your doctor about every-other-month cabenuva.

for people living with h-i-v, keep being you. and ask your doctor about biktarvy. biktarvy is a complete, one-pill, once-a-day treatment used for h-i-v in certain adults. it's not a cure, but with one small pill, biktarvy fights h-i-v to help you get to and stay undetectable. that's when the amount of virus is so low it cannot be measured by a lab test. research shows people who take h-i-v treatment every day and get to and stay undetectable can no longer transmit h-i-v through sex. serious side effects can occur, including kidney problems and kidney failure. rare, life-threatening side effects include a buildup of lactic acid and liver problems. do not take biktarvy if you take dofetilide or rifampin. tell your doctor about all the medicines and supplements you take, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding,
12:21 am
or if you have kidney or liver problems, including hepatitis. if you have hepatitis b, do not stop taking biktarvy without talking to your doctor. common side effects were diarrhea, nausea, and headache. if you're living with hiv, keep loving who you are. and ask your doctor if biktarvy is right for you. your record label is taking off. but so is your sound engineer. you need to hire. i need indeed. indeed you do. indeed instant match instantly delivers quality candidates matching your job description. visit

[ laughter ] singing is my thing, and it was something positive. i didn't get into gangs. i didn't get into negative things. but they were there. so it definitely was good that i stuck to it, because then i ended up doing a lot of other things.
