Watch Lin-Manuel Miranda and Freestyle Love Supreme rap about open-office seating… and bunions?

Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s rap skills were put to the test Tuesday night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Miranda and the cast of the improvisational hip-hop group he co-founded, Freestyle Love Supreme, had to make-up raps on the spot after taking suggestions from the late-night show’s audience. The theme was things people dislike, such as open-office seating and bunions.
“First day of work and I’m feeling so great, grateful for having a job on my plate. Walk into the office, and it’s not that I’m bitter, but everyone can see me every time I check Twitter,” Miranda opined about open offices.

The multi-hyphenate announced back in June that the improv group would be kicking off a 16-week run at Broadway’s Booth Theater in New York City on Sept. 13, ahead of an Oct. 2 opening night. Freestyle Love Supreme‘s core members include Anthony Veneziale, Andrew Bancroft, Arthur Lewis, Bill Sherman, Chris Sullivan, and Utkarsh Ambudkar, while the rotating cast is comprised of Miranda himself, Christopher Jackson, James Monroe Iglehart, Wayne Brady, and Daveed Diggs. Miranda will co-produce and occasionally make surprise appearances in the show.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights at 11:35pm ET/PT on NBC. Watch a clip of the performance below.

Bill Murray’s brother Ed, who inspired ‘Caddyshack,’ dies

News of the elder Murray’s death came in the form of a statement on the William Murray Golf Instagram account.”It’s with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of the legend Ed Murray,” the statement read. “Named after the family patriarch, it was Ed who introduced the Murray family to this wonderful game of golf — by way of caddying at Indian Hills Country Club — at the age of 10, no less. (They don’t make ’em like that anymore.)”The statement went on to read that Murray “was the recipient of the Evans Scholarship back in 1963, while attending Northwestern University — a scholarship awarded to golf caddies — a family storyline which served as inspiration for the Danny Noonan character in ‘Caddyshack’ when Brian Doyle-Murray co-wrote that iconic screenplay.””Ed and all five Murray brothers are members of the Caddie Hall of Fame, as well — something all the boys take pride in, as this game helped shape their lives,” the statement said. “It was an honor for all of us to get to know Ed and to spend time with him over the past half decade as we’ve built this brand with the Murray family — and his loss is a hole that will never be filled.”No age or cause of death was given. Bill Murray played Carl Spackler in “Caddyshack” while Michael O’Keefe starred as Noonan in the 1980 sports comedy. CNN has reached out to an attorney for Bill Murray for comment.

Singer Christina Perri says she lost her baby, who was ‘born silent’

“She is at peace now & will live forever in our hearts,” the singer and songwriter wrote on Twitter, posting a picture of the baby’s hand. Perri was in her third trimester. Perri’s heartbreaking post on Tuesday came just days after the 34-year-old singer wrote that the baby was being closely monitored and would likely have some “challenging issues when they arrive but hopefully I can stay pregnant a bit longer.”The singer in January announced the miscarriage of an 11-week-old baby, saying her family was “shocked & completely heartbroken.” Perri and her husband, Paul Costabile, also have a 2-year-old daughter, Carmella. “I am so sad but not ashamed,” Perri wrote of that earlier loss. “I am ever reminded how amazing and powerful women are at making life and at healing. To all the mothers who have been here and who will be here, I see you and I love you.””I am so sad but not discouraged. When the time feels right we will try again, but today, we mourn our little life lost.”It was that experience that Perri says helped changed her mind about a lot of things, including maternity photo shoots. She posted photos from one earlier this month. “I truly am grateful to be pregnant and grateful to be a woman,” she wrote on November 9. “I am so blown away by what our bodies can do. I don’t know if I’ll ever be pregnant again, so this time I’m going to celebrate and honor my pregnancy, my baby & my beautiful body.”
