Brenda Song Hyperventilated During a Lakers Game

-So, Brenda, you grew up
in Southern California, correct? -Yes.
-Okay, girl, so, tell me, what is the most L.A. thing
about you? -Uh, probably the fact
that I bleed purple and gold. I’m a huge Lakers fan.
[ Cheers and applause ] Well, hold on, guys.
This is my big claim to fame. I have a Lakers
championship ring. -[ Gasps ] Wait. What?! -With my nickname “B-Song”
on it. And this all happened
because I — Like, in my dressing room
on “Suite,” I would have a huge cut-out
of Kobe Bryant. My whole room was Lakers. And Tish Buss, her kids love the
show — Jerry Buss’ daughter. And so we sort of traded. I would go to games,
they would come watch the show. And when we won in ’09,
they asked, “Would you like to —
Because you’re such a big fan, would you like to buy
a championship ring?” Like, of course! -That’s insane.
-Yeah. -So, the ring is cool, but
somebody got some custom shoes. [ Cheers and applause ] I actually would like you
to zoom in if we could. The Raptors, the NBA champs,
sent me these shoes. I’ll just bring them over here
so you can see. -Wait, wait. -So, this side says “World,”
and that side says “Champs.” ‘Cause, you know, the Raptors
are the world champs, so… But you know. But you know. -Wait. I am so confused. I literally thought that all
girls who said they liked sports were lying or their dad
just really wanted a son. [ Laughter ]
I can’t believe that. You guys are legit.
-How dare you. Are you kidding me?
-Are you kidding me? Rings and shoes?
What’s there not to love? -I know. -It’s so super-dope
that you have a ring. Round of applause.
[ Cheers and applause ] So cool. So, Esther, I want to talk about
other SoCal news right now, because you posted a picture
that is — how do I put this — epic! I want to show it right now.
It’s with one of my other faves. The one, the only Tyra Banks. [ Cheers and applause ] I can’t even imagine
what it feels like to post next to Tyra Banks. -It was the greatest
experience of my life. Okay, so, I went up to Tyra,
I’m like, “I’m so sorry. I’m a huge fan.
I have to ask you a question. Can you please look at me and tell me how I can be
prettier in pictures? Like, you’re the queen.” And I thought she’d be like — I didn’t know what
I was getting into. But Tyra goes, “Give me your
phone.” And I’m like, “What?” She’s like, “Give me your phone.
Let me see your photos.” She scrolls through all
my selfies, all my photos. She literally assesses my face.
She goes, “This is what you do. Drop your jaw. Relax your jaw.” Relax my jaw.
Look how good I look. -But you also look like — I’m not sure
if you’re scared or… [ Laughter ] Now, Brenda, before “Dollface,” you were a Disney Channel star,
obviously. Obviously.
[ Cheers and applause ] I have always been
so curious to know. What is it like
growing up on a set where you have so many other
childhood experiences on set? -Well, you have a lot of firsts
on set. Like, I had my first kiss on
“The Suite Life of Zack & Cody.” Yeah. -We have the video, so…
-No! [ Cheers and applause ] -I would like to present to you
Brenda Song’s first kiss. Check it out. [ Cheers and applause ] Didn’t mention he had cake
all over his face. -Oh, yeah. It’s a Disney show. Of course there’s gonna be pie
on my face. -Are you a better kisser now? -I hope so.
-That is — You know, I really want to
applaud that, ’cause I can’t imagine how nerve-racking that
is in front of all those people. -Aw, thank you.
[ Cheers and applause ] -And now you are dating
another former child star in Macaulay Culkin.
Yes, you are. And I just have to show this because, truly, I’m obsessed
with what I’m about to say. He was caught on a stage
of a different type recently. Check out this video of your
boyfriend, Macaulay Culkin. [ Laughter ] [ Crowd cheering ] -Oh, God.
-Okay. Hold on. There is so much to unpack here. What were you —
Walk me through. What are you thinking
when you look up and see your boyfriend
next to Lizzo on stage? -Okay, so, I actually was there
with Kat Dennings, one of my costars
from “Dollface,” and we were up there talking,
and Mac was with us. And he kind of slipped out.
Thought he went to the bathroom. And all of a sudden, Kat’s like, “Hey, that guy looks like
he’s wearing Mac’s shirt.” And I was like, “Mac —
Oh, my God! What?!” And here’s the thing about Mac, is we always like to say
that wherever he goes, he’ll probably either end up
on stage or being kicked out. He came to my special taping,
and I don’t know how he did it, but by the end, he was on stage.
-Yeah, he was. -And now he did it
with Lizzo, too. He’s — You’re right. He’s always
up on stage or kicked out. -Yeah.
-Always. -That’s kind of amazing, though.

  1. Brenda is so damn beautiful that I felt the need to post this comment just to tell someone. Never seen her work before but I'll check out doll face mmmmkay… πŸ‘€

  2. I initially did not understand when she said she bled purple and gold – 'uh! is that an LA thing……oh it's a team thing'

  3. One championship Toronto? Wow that’s so awesome!! Wish the Lakers had that much success. Yes I’m being sarcastic.

  4. Uhh…. Lilly, bit of advice – you're the host of the show, not the star. I feel like if you're not very comfortable being out of the spotlight for long then perhaps, change up the format of the show. Like that part where Brenda shows off her ring and you chime in with your shoes comes off a bit rude and brash. Please only take this as feedback, I mean you no ill will. Cheers from India! Hope the show gets better πŸ™‚
