While promoting Sandy Wexler on Monday (April 17) in New York City, Jennifer revealed that Whitney Houston was her main influence for her performance.

“I remember Adam and Steven Brill, the director, saying it’s kind of like a comedic version of The Bodyguard, in a way,” Jennifer told ABC. “And you definitely feel the sentiment of Whitney throughout the film, even with the song ‘DJ,’ it kind of has more of a ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’ or ‘My Name is Not Susan’ type of vibe to it. And even my style — Whitney was a huge reference for a lot of the looks for Courtney in the film.”

That same evening, Jennifer made an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where she showed off her immaculate range with one of her favorite church hymns – Watch!

Adam Sandler Shares His Don Rickles Fond Memories With Jimmy Kimmel - Watch Here!

Adam Sandler, along with tons of other celebs, is paying his respects to the late Don Rickles.

While making an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote his new original Netflix movie Sandy Wexler on Thursday evening (April 6) in Los Angeles, the 50-year-old entertainer reminisced about some of his time with Don in honor of the legendary comedian’s death that same day at age 90.

Jimmy, who also presented a montage of some of Don‘s greatest moments on his show, began by remembering an occasion when Adam and Don were on the show together.

Don, known for being an insult comic, shouted, “let’s take up a collection and buy Adam a suit.” On another occasion, Adam was having dinner with Steve Buscemi just after the release of Reservoir Dogs and Don happened to be there. The comic threw a barb at Buscemi, joking, “I saw your movie, Mr. Pink, more like Mr. Stink.” And then he turned his attention to Adam, quipping, ‘I saw Happy Gilmore, it’s amazing how no talent can get you a movie.’”

Pictured: Adam making an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show (airing April 7) before hitting the carpet with his co-stars Jennifer Hudson, David Spade, Quincy Jones, Terry Crews, Rob Schneider and Jane Seymour at the premiere of Sandy Wexler held at ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome on Thursday (April 6) in Hollywood.
