Bono's hand may be injured but it looks like he still knows how to rock -- even in the most unlikely of venues!
Before their scheduled performance on this Friday's Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Bono, The Edge and the rest of the boys in U2 popped up at NYC's Grand Central subway station and performed an impromptu session of "Angel of Harlem." More like Angels of Manhattan!
In the video, showing the U2 frontman, clad in a oversized jacket and bright blue cowboy hat, at the microphone and singing the band's beloved 1988 classic as the eager crowd cheers on the band.
Last month, the Irish rocker told The New York Times that a hand injury from a bike crash prevented him from playing the guitar. The superstar had surgery following the accident but still didn't know if he has permanent damage to his hand.
"It feels like I have somebody else's hand," Bono told NYT, refering to his fourth and fifth finger. "I can't bend these, and this is like rigor mortis. But they say that nerves heal about a millimeter a week, so in about 13 months I should know if it's coming back."
Despite the significant setback to the band, Bono and the gang will set off on their 20-city Innocence + Experience tour in Vancouver on May 14.

Adele celebrated her 27th birthday by dressing in drag as her idol George Michael, and the she completely nailed the look! The British songstress donned a fake beard, aviators, and a cross earring, and it was so spot on, it even caught the attention of the "Gotta Have Faith" singer himself!
"Thank you for the birthday wishes I had a wonderful time! I was my hero x #gottahavefaith," she captioned the above Twitter photo. "Happy Birthday @OfficialAdele !!! I'm so flattered, love The Singing Greek! xxx," Mr. Michael responded. What a dream come true!
The chart topper has been living life out of the spotlight since giving birth to son Angelo with husband Simon Koneki, but her third studio album should be dropping some time next fall. We need more Adele in our lives!

We got a peek at a quickie teaser a few months ago, and now here's the whole enchilada!
The full-length trailer for Magic Mike XXL has hit the web, and from Channing Tatum's abs (AND footwork!) to Joe Manganiello busting some R-rated moves in a convenience store, we can't help but feel a little hot in the cheeks after watching this.
In addition to Joe and Channing, we also get a peek at Matt Bomer, Adam Rodriguez, Stephen Boss and Kevin Nash. Jada Pinkett Smith, Andie MacDowell, Amber Heard and Elizabeth Banks also make appearances in the flick, which hits theaters on July 1.

Less than 24 hours after attending the 2015 Met Gala, Kris Jenner has had her fill of the Big Apple!
Barely allowing herself a moment to rest after the Metropolitan Museum's big bash the night before, Mama K jetted out of NYC and back home to Los Angeles. Someone must not be loving New York City and all it has to offer!
For the flight back to the City of Angels, Kris opted to suit up in a black-on-black tuxedo jacket, black shirt and leather pants. Is it just us or is the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star dressing more and more like Kanye West?!
The night before at the glittering gala, the 59-year-old made waves with her ruby red dress and her severe hairstyle.
The reality star also seemed to take a minute from the glitz and glamor to comfort the always sad Selena Gomez, who teared up during their brief encounter on the red carpet. Maybe Kendall Jenner's mama was talking to her about her feud with her model daughter or Selena's ex Justin Bieber, whom the matriarch seems to be buds with? Whatever it was the two were discussing -- Selena seemed to find some solace.
Kudos Kris! You did the unthinkable -- made Selena Gomez stop crying!

Who doesn't love JB?!
Lady Gaga was a vision in feathers as she arrived at LAX last night after spending time in NYC for the Met Gala, and we wish there hadn't been such chaos surrounding her as she made her way through the terminal, because we wanted to ask her about becoming a Belieber!
In case you missed it, Mother Monster spent time with the Canadian crooner at fashion's biggest night, and took to her Instagram to publicly declare her support of the The Biebs! "He really has a sweetness to him. He grew up in front of the whole world. I reminded him to not get bothered. Because at the end of the day. He's the boss. And life isn't always Roses. Lots of thorns," she captioned a photo of them that the singer had previously shared on his page.
Something we did get a chance to ask? If the "Do What U Want" songstress is planning on changing her last name once she ties the knot with fiancé Taylor Kinney. "Yes!" she happily declared with a smile on her face. The pair became engaged on Valentine's Day, and lately we've been wondering if the eccentric pop star is pregnant, so we wouldn't be surprised if she becomes a Mrs. sooner rather than later!

But where were the rest of the boys?!
On Tuesday night Louis Tomlinson got his Cinco de Drinko on at the Argyle Club in Hollywood with a few male pals, and when the One Direction singer arrived at the club, he already looked like he might have down a margarita or two. And what's going on with his eye? He doesn't seem like the type to get into a bar brawl, but if that's not an eye infection, it's definitely a small shiner!
The 23-year-old boybander quietly made his way into the club, but on the way out he was in a much better mood -- and accompanied by a handful of blonde girls in short skirts. Louis made headlines last month after a wild night out in London, and while he has been working on 1D's new album, we have to wonder if his partying is under control. A few months ago Louis split from his girlfriend of four years, Eleanor Calder, so it looks like he's making up for lost time!

Selena Gomez landed at Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday afternoon, and despite the fact that she was up late for the Met Gala the previous night, she appeared very chipper. Might this have something to do with the fact that she got a major shout out from former flame Justin Bieber last night? Never say never!
When Bieber was leaving the bash last night, he was heard shouting to fans, "Hey, Selena looked gorgeous at the Met Ball!" and he even tried to catch her attention at Rihanna's afterparty at Up & Down. Bieber was already there hanging out with Tyga, and a source tells Us Weekly Biebs "tried very hard" to chat with SG, but "their encounter was pretty short."
But now another outlet is reporting that Justin was actually texting Selena the entire time! "He was trying to get her to leave with him so they could talk in private," a source tells Celebrity Dirty Laundry. "He showed some of the text messages to his friends and bragged that Selena could never say no to him, and they were going to hook-up after the party. Selena kept saying things like ‘why don’t you just leave with Kendall.'"
Burn! But Selena and Zedd are dunzo, and Bieber doesn't seem too serious about Kendall Jenner or Hailey Baldwin. Is a reunion in the cards for these two?!

There's so many things we love about Miley Cyrus: Her Bangerz album, the fact that she adores animals and we definitely dig that she recently launched the Happy Hippie Foundation, which helps support homeless and LGBT youth. But her outfits?! We can't get behind those!
On Tuesday afternoon the 22-year-old pop superstar stepped out of her New York City hotel to greet her fans, and she wore a pair of wild pants, a tee with a naked photo of Madonna, heart-shaped sunglasses and and eyeball sticker on her forehead. And that scarf around her neck? So 80s flight attendant chic!
When she's not wearing questionable attire or working on new music, Miley has used her starpower to help raise awareness for homeless teens. So what's the story behind her new org? Yesterday she officially launched the Happy Hippie Foundation, and she posted a video on her Facebook page to help spread the word. The Backyard Sessions are a collection of music video collaborations with artists like Joan Jett, Laura Jane Grace and Ariana Grande, and as the name indicates, each set is performed in Cyrus' backyard. Each clip will include a "Donate" feature that enables fans to make a donation directly to The Happy Hippie Foundation.
"Pointless judgment and its effects are unfortunately something that is way to common. All humans have valid feelings and rights! I want to use my voice as a megaphone to young people everywhere and encourage human evolution," Cyrus says. "No one should have to hide who they really are, no matter what his or her name, gender or status." Amen!
