  • -Taraji P. Henson, thank you so much for joining us tonight

  • on "Tonight Show" at-home edition.

  • You know I love you. You look fantastic.

  • -Thanks, Jimmy. So do you. Red looks good on you.

  • -Yeah, we're both wearing red.

  • Red looks good on you too. Look at us reds.

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • -I want that painting in the back, by the way.

  • -Oh, yeah. You know, a fan did that for me.

  • -What?

  • I want that fan to do one of me or -- Yeah, I want that.

  • Maybe you can loan it to me. -Put it out there.

  • I forgot. I have the card somewhere.

  • I don't know. But you see, fan?

  • If you're out there watching, I put it up.

  • It's in my salon. Jimmy, this is my salon.

  • -Salon. Is this L.A. or Chicago?

  • -L.A. I got back to L.A. because the show was done.

  • We did 100 episodes.

  • We weren't able to finish the season

  • because there would have been no way to get back and film

  • an episode and a half and have it ready and cued up to --

  • you know, for the show.

  • It just wasn't gonna work.

  • -That's an amazing achievement. 100 episodes.

  • Congratulations, "Empire."

  • To everyone, congratulations. -Thank you! Thank you.

  • -Oh, my gosh.

  • You said you're in your salon. What does that mean?

  • -That means I have a TPH salon.

  • You know, I came out with my own hair products.

  • -That's right. I knew about that.

  • But I didn't know you had a salon.

  • -In my house. -Oh, my gosh.

  • -Well, it's separate.

  • It's a separate, you know, structure from the house.

  • And it's my little happy place.

  • You know how you have a man cave?

  • -Yeah.

  • -Well, this is my queen cave.

  • -What -- [ Laughter ]

  • -This is where I have hair and little things.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • Makeup. -Oh, my gosh.

  • I heard that you've been doing a lot of nail work.

  • -Yes. I do my own nails.

  • This is gel. -Whoo!

  • -Mm-hmm. I did my own pedicure.

  • I did my own hair.

  • -I know. My wife is, like, freaking out.

  • She's like, "I need a pedicure so bad."

  • I'm like, "No."

  • -I wish she could come to the TPH salon.

  • -I saw some client that you had, has a picture of someone --

  • Who is this?

  • -That is Tabal. That is my other son.

  • And he was ready for his lineup.

  • You know, this quarantine is getting to him too, you know?

  • He hasn't seen his barber.

  • He hasn't had his nails done.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -He's so cute. Come on.

  • -Thank you. That's my baby.

  • -A lot of interesting stuff

  • is happening during this quarantine.

  • But one thing I saw your name a couple times

  • is DJ D-Nice, his club quarantine.

  • How fun has that thing turned out to be?

  • -It's so much fun.

  • It really takes your mind off of it.

  • I was an only child. I'm an only child.

  • So I was an only child for 17 years

  • until my sister and my stepbrother came along.

  • So I have a very creative imagination.

  • So, you know, it's so much fun when you get in there

  • because people are talking about bottle service.

  • And I came up with this whole skit that I left my credit card

  • and, you know, I was like, "That damn bottle service girl better

  • get her credit card back."

  • [ Laughter ]

  • I mean, it's just a good way to get outside of the house

  • without leaving the house, you know?

  • Another way to hold on to our sanity.

  • -You know, it's funny, I was talking to him and I was saying,

  • "Is it weird not having, you know, an audience?"

  • Because usually you're deejaying for a crowd

  • and getting their response and seeing how they react.

  • And he said, "In a weird way it was almost just as satisfying

  • because you see all these hearts going up the screen.

  • And then you see people actually typing and commenting exactly

  • what they think of every song."

  • He's like, "That could never happen in a real club."

  • -No, because we wouldn't be able to hear each other.

  • -Exactly.

  • "I love that one!"

  • So he actually liked it even better.

  • He goes, "It's actually weirdly more satisfying."

  • And then to have people like you go on there and support him,

  • it made him feel like a million bucks.

  • -Yeah. I'm sure he's not as excited about me

  • as he is about Halle Berry.

  • You saw that. Halle was in there a couple times.

  • I was like, "Yes!"

  • -No, come on.

  • I'd be so psyched to have you anywhere, man.

  • Now, are you meditating throughout this whole time?

  • Because I found myself meditating more.

  • -Yes, Jimmy, I am meditating.

  • -Oh, the bowls!

  • -I'm going to make two Tibetan bowls sing simultaneously.

  • [ Tibetan bowls ringing ]

  • -Ahh.

  • Oh, I need that.

  • ♪♪

  • I love that. -You hear that?

  • -Oh, I love that.

  • Oh, my gosh, Taraji, thank you so much for that.

  • You made them both sing.

  • Have you been doing a lot of meditating?

  • -Yes, yes, I have Jimmy! -What?

  • -A lot of meditating. I've got blue balls.

  • [ Laughter ] -Oh, my God.

  • -You know what I like more than blue balls, Jimmy?

  • -Oh, my heavens. Wow. -Jimmy, no, I know.

  • There are so many jokes in this.

  • But these are meditating balls.

  • And these really, really calm my nerve.

  • And you hear.

  • They have bells in them.

  • So I juggle my blue balls because they --

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • They calm you down. You're frozen.

  • You're frozen holding your balls.

  • You're frozen holding your balls.

  • Oh, there you are. -That's terrible.

  • -No, you were holding your balls like that and you were frozen.

  • -I know.

  • That's a joke.

  • And you was frozen like this.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -Oh, God, I miss you.

  • -I miss you so much, Jimmy.

  • -I really can't wait to see you in the studio.

  • We do a thing on this show called

  • "What are you doing Wednesdays"

  • because we know everyone's at home.

  • Have you seen anything online or anything people are doing

  • that you go like, "Oh, that is really fun

  • and it's making me laugh and getting me through the day"?

  • Now you're frozen. Am I frozen again too?

  • -Okay. You said --

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • -Am I frozen weirdly? No!

  • -You're doing like -- You're like this.

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • -Do you want to try calling back?

  • -Yes. -Alright. Come back.

-Taraji P. Henson, thank you so much for joining us tonight
