from nbc news, this is "today" with kathie lee gifford and hoda kotb. live from studio, 1a. >> hello, everybody. it's wines-day wednesday, just in time for me to feel better. i want to thank all of you for the best wishes yesterday. i didn't tell everybody i wasn't feeling well for sympathy. i just wanted to create suspense that i might barf at some point in the hour. >> you're all back? >> it's one of those things where i thought you never know how it's going to go.
i found the key is less than 24 hours, just drink water. no fizzy stuff, no crackers, don't do anything. >> sometimes that works. you don't put anything that might have a desire to come up. thanks, everybody. >> a.j. clemente was the anchor at bismarck. >> for one day. >> it ended quickly. it ended in a matter of seconds. >> morality failed for all of us. >> he cursed on the air. his explanation was they came on 30 seconds before they were supposed to and he was unaware they were on the air. he was cursing, because he was trying to pronounce the name of the marathon winner. he couldn't say it. >> he also dropped the f-bomb.
>> so letterman had some fun with this young man. >> right down letterman's alley. let's see. >> here's what happens. take a look. >> a.j. clemente was fired by kfyr after this unfortunate incident on his first day. >> [ bleep ]. after being relieved of the position, he said he's now proud to curse for you. he will curse at your corporate events, birthday parties. [ bleep ] bar mitzvahs [ bleep ] or just to tell that special someone you love her. act now and get half off golf appearances by tiger woods. don't delay and book today. >> oh, my gosh. hopefully he's having a sense of humor about it, because he was with savannah and matt earlier, and he did explain why, sort of. >> kind of.
>> i was looking down and i'm going over my script, my co-anchor happens to be looking at the camera and she notices the red light came on. we came on 30 seconds early. i'm going on, the london marathon is my second story. there is literally three names i don't know how to pronounce at all. >> you're practicing. as you kept messing them up, you got frustrated, and you thought you had time before you went on the air. >> and fireball shot came right out of my mouth. >> fireball shot. >> okay. you know what? i feel for the guy, i really do. it will be interesting to see what happens as a result. i think most people feel like [ bleep ] -- shoot, that could have been me. we all make mistakes. you wonder how systemic that is in him. >> it was his first day. we've all had horrible weekends.
>> he had been on the weekend before. >> and he was promoted. >> you kind of wonder who should lose their job, poor a.j. or the person who hired him. oh, gosh. jimmy fallon was having some fun, as he tends to do. >> can't the man have a career without us? >> i don't think so. let's look. >> let's take a look at the pros and cons of nbc earth week. pro -- a recycling plant can store millions of bottles. con -- so can kathie lee and hoda's wine fridge. >> it's all organic. >> and judge not lest ye be judged. >> and we have some more -- >> my liver is in shock. >> we ran out. this is all that's left. >> it's a special. tell me how it is, hoda woman.
she was drinking before the show. i sigh lipstick spots on before it. >> all right. let's talk about some kids at a dance. there's a dance that is going on among eighth graders at a school in new jersey, and the principal of the middle school decided he didn't like how risque some of the girls were dressing, so she told them that they should have straps. you can't wear a strapless dress, you must have straps, and she decided the dresses would be distracting to boys. that's why the girls should make sure that they wore straps, which would apparently change how the men felt if there was a tiny piece of cloth there. >> just put them in hazmat suits and call it a night. it does trouble me that the
sexualization of young people long before they are -- basically have not even grown their brains yet and they're already so sexually active. i do understand what she's trying to say, but it's not really here from up that's the problem really. some of the prom dresses are so short that it's far more revealing -- >> yeah, i think so. >> if i were a true -- at that school, that's what i would do. i would take my strapless dress and shorten it like crazy. take that fabric and make straps, but i would have it up to the wazoo. ♪ if i were a slut girl ♪ la, la, la, la, >> this is a very serious news story. >> for someone to say put on a
sweater over your dress, i just wouldn't want that to interfere with my daughter's self-esteem. i would never let my daughter walk out of the house in something inappropriate. >> for guys, they're not going to do anything inappropriate. >> i don't want to waste my money just because i bought a dress that doesn't have straps. >> apparently they just announced this, and a lot of kids had already purchased their dress. >> their dance isn't until june. i think it's strange. >> and it's being held at a venue away from the school. the school apparently is not paying for it? is that right? we don't know. we're not sure. i think separate and apart from anything that is not at the school. >> here's the school's statement -- the school district has a policy regarding dress code which is universally applied to the school day and school events. we regret that a small number of families are upset by this, and we welcome their input and
communication. the board of education regularly reviews and revises this policy. >> sorry. no, i think there's classy and there's trashy. >> and straps don't make it one or the other. >> and you know it when you see it. i've seen some beautiful dresses that are strapless, and some trashy long ones. >> let's show that picture of j.lo in the versace thing. >> we do want to know what you think. is the principal doing the right thing, telling girls they need to wear straps? >> i think the motivation is right, i think she just didn't think it through. let's talk about "the voice." >> no, beyonce. beyonce is upset, okay? apparently when she was performing at the super bowl there were some photographs taken by photographers, and she didn't like them because she
looked like that, and like that. so, anyway, she said this was a group called bud -- buzzfeed.com. they said here are the pictures that beyonce doesn't want you to see. and she was upset. >> you know, that's part of being a celebrity. there's unflattering pictures of you, anyway. forget about it and keep moving on. she's a beautiful woman, an amazing talent. she just drew attention to it, and we wouldn't be talking about it if she hadn't made something about it. >> we all have terrible photos taken, but whatever it is, and especially if you're her, we know you're gorgeous and we know the pictures aren't great. >> anybody in one second can be caught in an unflattering -- >> but i think it's speaking to a bigger issue. >> that's my concern.
we love beyonce. i didn't love the title of her last show, i don't like the dress she's wearing in the tour, i get upset, i think she's brilliantly talented, but she's so talented she doesn't need to go down that road. >> trying to control the situation. let her talent speak. >> yes. there are talented people on "the voice." >> that's what i hear. these are the battle rounds. they sang a song? spanish written by shakira, or sung by her, anyway. let's listen. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪
♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> okay. so the little girl, the smaller woman -- >> we could hardly hear her in here. all i heard was the second girl singing. >> this is a really big dramatic moment. so the smaller girl, the shorter girl ended up the littler one, and -- >> let's say vertically challenged. >> she was chosen by shakira. it was over, the other one was crying, so she's leaving the stage, she's free to be stolen and everyone sits there. she's walking away. it's over. she's walking away and usher's staring at his button and hits it and saves her. she's crying again. it's drama, when you lose and then you win. it's so exciting.
she won. >> so they're all moving forward. >> those are. >> is that it? >> yeah. so they sang "wanted you more" by lady antebellum. ♪ something in you must have changed ♪ ♪ all the words unspoken ♪ promises broken ♪ i cry for long ♪ wasted too much ♪ not knowing what went wrong the second girl i thought -- she sounds like trisha yearwood and then sounded like kelly clarkson. i liked the guy, a lot of soulfulness.
so what happened there? >> well, who do you like? who would you have picked? >> honestly we're -- enough, so i have to go with the second girl. >> you're right. that's who adam chose. >> what about the morgan kids, the blond kids. >> they got booted. that's over, out. should we say congrats? >> yes, yes, yes. we love our curtis stone. we feel like we own him. >> we made him. >> actually tammy did. >> but we absolutely love him to pieces. he's done one of the most unbelievable cookbooks, "what's for dinner" and he made the "new york times" list. bobbi will, too. >> she's on a roll. >> number 19 or something. >> she's rockin' it. >> hi, sara. >> hi, guys. i'm here to remind you the most deserving mom contest sponsored by expedia.com.
