Riz Ahmed Delivers Moving Spoken Word Peformance of 'Sour Times' on 'The Tonight Show' - Watch Here!

Riz Ahmed made his return to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday evening (August 14) and took the opportunity to perform a special spoken word rendition of his song “Sour Times” in wake of the white supremacist rally that occurred over the weekend in Charlottesville.

The 34-year-old Star Wars star, who is also one-half of the hip-hop duo Swet Shop Boys with Heems, had more to say than just movie chit chat. At the end of his conversation with host Jimmy, Riz asked for a microphone, walked to the performance area, and delivered a three-minute a cappella.

“In light of all the current events that are going on, it just seems like we’re living in really, really divided times and it really hurts,” Riz said, noting that he wrote the “Sour Times” about 10 years ago and that every year he hopes it will become irrelevant, but it just keeps becoming more relevant. “It’s my attempt to get behind the headlines and work out where all this extremism is coming from.”

Nicole Kidman Would Not Hesitate to Eat These Gross Bugs: 'I Could Go on Survivor'

Alexander Skarsgard, Nicole Kidman, Riz Ahmed, and Milo Ventimiglia are just some of the TV stars featured in W magazine’s August 2017 issue.

Here’s what they shared with the mag…

Milo, on his first kiss: “It was at my friend’s house. I think this beautiful girl, her name was Michelle. And I remember she walked up and just grabbed me, and pulled me in and kissed me. And I couldn’t leave the couch after that. I was shocked and terrified and in love and feeling something I’d never really felt before. And it was amazing and I wanted it again, but that was my friend Roger’s girl that he was kind of dating. Yeah, I think that one definitely put me on my ass. . . It lasted a long time, the memory of it. You don’t think about those things, and then the question is asked, and you’re right back there in that moment. It’s, Oh, man, I remember everything.”

Nicole, on being very adventurous with food: “I’m one of those people. I could go on Survivor and I wouldn’t be good at the climbing and all of the physical stuff, but I could eat anything. Just so you know. That’s my secret skill. Give me a cockroach, I’ll eat it! Spider, I’ll eat it! You name it, I’ve tried it. I’m adventurous.”

Jennifer Lawrence, Jon Hamm, & More Unite for Planned Parenthood (Video)

Jennifer Lawrence and Jon Hamm are just two of more than 25 stars who want you to take control of your health and body.

In a new video posted by Lena Dunham‘s online newsletter, Lenny Letter, along with news company NowThis, celebs have joined forces to support Planned Parenthood.

They urge viewers to fight against President Donald Trump‘s proposed health care bill and protect access to health care services by calling their senators.

The video also features Brie Larson, Amy Poehler, Judd Apatow, Spike Jonze, Riz Ahmed, Elisabeth Moss, Aubrey Plaza, Alison Brie, Jack Antonoff, Jenny Slate, Suki Waterhouse, activist Gloria Steinem, comedian Retta, and more.

“We are so grateful to have the support of so many artists, many of whom have themselves relied on Planned Parenthood for health care and who understand the importance of speaking out,” said Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, in a statement.

“This support is especially important right now as the Senate is jamming through a bill that would block millions of women from getting birth control and cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood,” she added. “Now is the time to speak out. One in five women in this country rely on Planned Parenthood for care. They will not stay silent as politicians vote to take away their care and their rights.”
