, , 100 Comments


>>Stephen: PLEASE WELCOME,
LUPITA NYONG’O! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
IS THERE NICE TO SEE YOU AGAIN.>>GOOD TO SEE YOU.>>Stephen: YOU WERE ON THIS
TIME LAST YEAR.>>I WAS.>>Stephen: AND WE DID SOME
FUNNY WALKS TOGETHER.>>Stephen: WE DID.>>Stephen: “QUEEN OF KATWE”
IS AN INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL MOVIE, AND YOUR PERFORMANCE IS
WONDERFUL. MY FAVORITE MOVIE OF THE YEAR SO
FAR.>>THANK YOU.>>Stephen: BEFORE WE GET INTO
TALKING ABOUT THAT MOVIE YOU HAVE ANOTHER VIDEO PROJECT WHICH
I HAVE TO SHOW EVERYBODY WHO HASN’T SEEN IT. YOU RECORDED SOMETHING IN THE
BACK OF YOUR CAR.>>UH-HUH.>>Stephen: JUST RELEASED IT
YESTERDAY?>>I THINK IT WAS TWO DAYS AGO.>>Stephen: TWO DAYS AGO UNDER
THE NAME “TROUBLE MAKER,” AND JIMMY, LET’S GIVE PEOPLE A TASTE
OF HER NEW CAREER. ♪ SPEAK FOUR LANGUAGES
DOING DEALS IN SPANISH ♪ HIM THEM WITH MY AUTOGRAPH
POOF, I VANISH ♪ SHOUT OUT TO THE VILLAGERS,
HIT 3 MILLION YEAH, YEAH, HU, YEAH ♪
>>Stephen: SO YOU GOT A FALL-BACK CAREER. NICELY DONE.>>THANK YOU.>>Stephen: NICELY DONE. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
SO YOU’VE GOT A FALLBACK CAREER. IS JAY Z CALLING.>>MY PHONE LINE IS OPEN. I’LL TAKE THE CALL.>>Stephen: DON’T TELL THESE
PEOPLE YOU’LL NEVER SLEEP. WHY TROUBLE MAKER?>>MY FRIEND COMMON
CHRISTMASINED ME TROUBLE MAKER. I VISITED HIM IN HIS STIEWD QUO
ONCE, AND I WAS THREATENING TO DROP A BEAT, DROP SOMICS OR
SOMETHING. AND HE SAID, “OH, OH, TROUBLE
MAKER, “AND IT STUCK SINCE.>>Stephen: THAT’S THE BEST
CEEND OF TROUBLE. SPEAKING OF YOU GETTING IN
TROUBLE, YESTERDAY, OR THIS PAST WEEKEND, YOU WITHIN TO THE
OPENING OF THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY AND
CULTURE.>>I DID.>>Stephen: OKAY, NOW I
UNDERSTAND YOU WERE NOT INVITED. YOU JUST SHOWED UP.>>NO, CORRECTION, CORRECTION. I WAS INVITED, AND I DECLINED
BECAUSE I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO HAVE “QUEEN OF KATWE” PRESS IN
NEW YORK. AND SO THE DAY BEFORE WE WERE
DOING A Q & A AROUND 9:00 OF “QUEEN OF KATWE.” AND TODAY WAS LIKE I’M ON MY WAY
TO TIM KAINE AT 10 SPP AND I SAID,”WHAT’S HAPPENING IN D.C.?”
HE SAID, “THE MUSEUM IS OPENING. AREN’T YOU COMING?”
I SAID, “WE DON’T HAVE PRESS IN NEW YORK? I’M DEFINITELY COMING.” IN 45 MANSLAUGHTER WE GOT MY
MAKEUP ARTIST IN THE CAR. WE GOT CLOTHES TO WEAR, AND WE
KARL ROVE TO D.C. SO WHAT I COULD BE THERE AT 8:00 IN
MORNING.>>Stephen: SEE, THAT’S A REAL
STAR. THAT’S A REAL STAR. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
BECAUSE– ( APPLAUSE )
THAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOU AND ME IS BECAUSE YOU’RE A
REAL STAR. WHILE I’M ON TV I RARELY GET
MADE UP TO GO TO THE MUSEUM.>>WELL, WHEN THE PRESIDENT IS
THERE, YOU MIGHT WANT TO PUT ON A LITTLE POWDER.>>Stephen: A LITTLE BIT. ( LAUGHTER )
HOW WAS THE MUSEUM, BY THE WAY? I’D LOVE TO GO DOWN.>>IT WAS INCREDIBLE, IT WAS
INCREDIBLE. I MEAN, IT WAS SO WELL THOUGHT
OUT. AND IT’S SO INSPIRING. THEY’VE GOT SO MANY COOL THINGS
LIKE NAT TURNER’S BIBLE, HARRIET TUBMAN’S SCARF, EMMET TILLS’
ORIGINAL CASKET. IT IS TRULY THE HEADS OF
AMERICAN HISTORY AND CULTURE. FOR ME IT WAS SO AMAZING TO BE
THERE BECAUSE WHENNIVE DOING “12 YEARS A SLAVE” AND LOOKING FOR
EXPERIENCES TO PUT MYSELF THROUGH, THERE WAS NO DEFINITIVE
PLACE FOR AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY AND CULTURE AND NOW WE
HAVE THIS. IT’S HUGE. IT’S ON THE MALL. IT’S FULL OF RESPECT FOR THIS
HISTORY. AND I THINK IT’S REALLY HEALING
FOR AFRICAN AMERICANS TO HAVE THIS PLACE TO SHARE THEIR
HISTORY WITHERN THAT COMES TO VISIT AMERICA AND AMERICANS
THEMSELVES.>>Stephen: AND I UNDERSTAND
THAT YOUR WARDROBE– ( APPLAUSE )
I UNDERSTAND THAT YOUR WAR CROAB AS PATSY IS IN THE MUSEUM.>>YES, OH, MY GOODNESS, HOW
COULD I FORGET? THEY HAVE A FILM AND THEATER
AREA, AND PATSY’S DRESS IS THERE. AND THERE’S A PHOTO OF ME AND
OUR CHARACTERS AS WELL. IT MADE ME WEEP TO THINK THAT I
WAS SOMEHOW INCLUDED.>>Stephen: I’LL TELL YOU WHAT
MADE ME WEEP IS “QUEEN OF KATWE.” IT’S A BEAUTIFUL STORY– A TRUE
STORY. OF A YOUNG WOMAN NAMED FIONA. WHAT WAS HER LAST NAME.>>FUTESES.>>Stephen: WHO LIVES IN THE
UGANDA AND LEARNS CHESS AND CAN CHANGES HER LIFE AND THOSE
AROUND HER.>>AND NOW MINE.>>Stephen: IT’S A DISNEY
MOVIE, BUT IT DOESN’T SHY AWAY FROM THE HARSH CONDITIONS. I MEAN, IT DOESN’T SEEM
SANITIZED.>>NO.>>Stephen: IT DOESN’T
SANITIZE THE HARSH CONDITIONS THESE PEOPLE LIVE IN. WHERE DID YOU SHOOT THIS? WHERE WERE YOU WHEN YOU ACTUALLY
WERE IN THESE SLUMS?>>HE SHOT IT IN KATWE. IT’S THE BIGGEST AND POOREST
COLUMN IN COMPALA. WE SHOT SOME THERE BUT ALSO
OUTSIDE OF JOHANNESBURG. WE SHOOTING IT IN THE PLACE
THESE THINGS TRANSPIRED. IT’S A VERY RECENT STORY. THE GIRL THAT IT’S ABOUT IS ONLY
TWEN NOW. SO WE WERE REALLY WHERE THESE
THINGS HAPPENED, WHICH WAS SO GREAT. IT WAS SUCH A SOURCE OF
INSPIRATION FOR US. BECAUSE WHAT YOU FIND IN THESE
PLACES, THOUGH THEY’RE IN ABJECT POVERTY. THEY DO NOT LACK DIGNITY. AND THERE’S LIFE GOING ON. IT’S VIBRANT. YOU KNOW, PEOPLE ARE WORKING
THROUGH THEIR STRUGGLE. AND SO MUCH– SO MUCH SO, THAT
FIONA DISCOVERS CHESS, AND THEN USES THAT CHESS TO PULL HER
FAMILY OUT OF POVERTY. AND SO IT’S REALLY UPLIFTING,
HEARTWARMING, AND OFTEN FUNNY STORY TOLD.>>Stephen: IT’ IT’S FULL OF
HEARTBREAK AND HEARTWARMING AND I’M NOT GOING TO GIVE AWAY THE
ENDING BUT THE ENDING IS HOPEFUL AND BEAUTIFUL AND SHE’S A CHESS
MASTER NOW.>>YES, SHE IS. SHE VERY MUCH IS. HER FUTURE IS STILL VERY BRIGHT
AND YET TO BE WRITTEN, SO SHE’S STILL WORKING ON GETTING TO BE
THAT GRANDMASTER.>>Stephen: ONE THING I WANTED
TO ASK YOU, YOU WERE BORN IN MEXICO BUT RAISED IN KENYA, I
UNDERSTAND. AMERICANS LOOK AT, WHEN WE SAY,
“OH, YEAH, GUATEMALAARGENTINA, THE SPANISH-SPEAKING AREAS.” WE DON’T DIFFERENTIATE. WE THINK AFRICA, UGAWND AKENYA. WHAT IS THE VISION FROM UGANDA
FROM KENYA AND THE VISION OF KENYA FROM UGANDA.>>WE’RE BOTH IN EAST AFRICA AND
WE HAVE A LOT IN COMMON WHEN IT COMES TO CLIMATE. YOU KNOW HOW IN NEW YORK
SOMETIMES THERE ARE ALL SORTS OF PREJUDICES AGAINST NEW JERSEY,
YOU KNOW?>>Stephen: YEAH, A LITTLE
BIT. ( LAUGHTER )
WHICH ONE’S NEW JERSEY? IS KENYA NEW JERSEY OR IS
UGANDA– UGANDA–
>>NO, NO, IT IS DEFINITELY NOT NEW JERSEY. KENYA, ONE OF THE THINGS MY MOM
KEEPS SAYING IS IN UGAWND ATHEY HAVE CULLURE WHERE YOU KNEEL TO
SHOW RESPECT, AND THE KENYAN MEN REALLY LIKE THAT. AND MY MOM IS ALWAYS SAYING HOW
THE UGAWNDANS ARE STEALING ALL THE KENYAN MEN.>>Stephen: IT’S A BEAUTIFUL
MOVIE. THANK YOU FOR MAKING IT AND
THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.>>THANK YOU.>>Stephen: “QUEEN OF KATWE” IS
IN THEATERS NATIONWIDE THIS FRIDAY. LUPITA NYONG’O, EVERYBODY! WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH DONNIE

    English called Kenya "Keenya" and they called Uganda "Ugonda", like Stephen Colbert. He did say "Kenya", not "Keenya". She says "Ugonda", too. She didn't mention Museveni or Uhuru Kenyatta. Museveni doesn't believe in elections, Uhuru believes in money. So which is like New Jersey, and which is like New York. I was in Mosul, an Iraqi pronounced it "Mazool", like English calling Kabul "Kabool", and I asked him why, given the spelling made it clear it was called "Mow-sl", and he said, "That's what you guys call it" with a big smile. Heshima si utumwa. Home is where the heart is. Bloom where you're planted. Don't take crap from anyone. Pull your weight. Enjoy things. Wait. Know.

    Just image that Eve looked like Lupita. This may be the reason why Adam lost focus.
    Just a fun way to say how beautiful she is.

    You go girl, you are beautiful inside and out, talented intelligent, confident, eloquent yet so real and authentic. The greatest thing about all this is that you inspire so many girls, women and all people in general. You have so much to offer by letting your light shine, it validates so many people who aspire to reach their potential. God bless you.

    As long as she memorized lines upon lines she'll Fall asleep!

    When will she actually get started on writing her own lines…?

    Her own label & record company!

    But then to write, rap, sing, compose, produce, etc….
    That's not a 1 man show…it requires a team…. she's happy with the
