Ben said, "There was a bit of a courtship that went down," before Zach admitted, "I slid into his DMs." Zach said that though he did meet Ben backstage, he wanted more: "I said, 'Can we do things together? Can we hang out?'...I did worry [that I was coming on too strong. I thought he might think I was hitting on him or something. I was like, 'I'm straight, I just wanna be with you!'"

    On Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Seth said, "So, in the movie [Knocked Up], the scene is we're supposed to hallucinogenic mushrooms and go to a Cirque du Soleil show. And, I was a producer on the movie, so the director, Judd [Apatow], sent me and my partner Evan Goldberg to Las Vegas to scout all the Cirque du Soleil shows over the course of a weekend to pick which one would be the best for the movie. And, as responsible producers, we thought the only appropriate way to really know which one would be the best would be to do 'shrooms for two days straight, and see every single Cirque du Soleil show that was on the strip at the time, which we did. And it was amazing."

    On Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Tiffany Haddish explained what happened the night before her infamous Miami NYE show, where many fans walked out. She told Jimmy that, against her better judgement, her friends convinced her to go out the night before the show to "celebrate all her successes."

    She said, "I danced all night, I drank more than I've ever drank in my entire life, my kidneys fell out, I'm pretty sure my Uber rating dropped a little low because I pooped on myself a little bit in the Uber. It was bad."

    She continued, "When I woke up, I thought I was dead. I definitely woke up dead. I was hurting really bad and they were like, 'Come on Tiff, you gotta make a video to let everybody know where you're gonna be.' If you saw this video on my Instagram page, you know that that was not gonna be a good show. If you had any common sense you know she not ready. She was not ready."

    On Busy Tonight, Logic discussed his new book, saying, "A lot of it does deal with anxiety and depression, and overcoming that. A lot of the times it's, like, a taboo thing to talk about. Discussing it can make you look weak, especially in positions as our own." He continued, "I was going through it and it was really hard, but I didn't turn to drugs, I didn't turn to alcohol...but, I decided to write, and really just vent."
