Will Ferrell & Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith Compete In An Epic Drum-Off On The Tonight Show!

| Filed under: TV NewsWill FerrellJimmy FallonRed Hot Chili PeppersLate Night TV

The gods of Rock and Roll have demanded blood and they will not be denied!

Will Ferrell and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith have been in a feud the likes of which haven't been seen since Mozart and Salieri.

Apparently, their feud began when someone on Reddit suggested to Will that he looked like Chad, and then Will said that no, Chad was a character he created.

Gauntlet equals thrown.

Well, on the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon the two engaged in a drum-off for one purpose and one purpose only: to publicly shame their rival in front of millions.

Oh, and it was also done for charity, too. And there's also some cowbell.

Ch-ch-check out the two go crazy on the drums (above)!!!

The thing about playing an electric guitar is you need electricity in order to play it!

But there were NO wires coming out of any of the Red Hot Chili Pepper’s instruments during their Super Bowl Halftime Show with Bruno Mars on Sunday!

After all the accusations from fans saying they were faking it, bass player Flea is ready to admit that they were indeed just playing air guitar up there!

He posted an explanation though as to WHY the band didn’t plug in for their big performance.

He’s blaming the NFL! Apparently it was the league that wanted the band to pre-record their musical track and only have Anthony singing live!

In a wordy message on RHCP’s web site, he explained:

| Filed under: Music MinuteZportzBruno MarsSaturday Night LiveMelissa McCarthyRed Hot Chili PeppersFootballSuper BowlFunny

They've combined two of our favorite things: musicals and sssssparkles! You thought we were going to say 'sports,' didn't you? Ha!

Saturday Night Live kept with their trend this year of cold opens, and this one was Super Bowl themed.

The halftime show got a fancy update, complete with third-time host Melissa McCarthy as Momma Pass!

Honestly, we would be TOTALLY okay if this was a part of the real halftime show! In addition to Bruno Mars and Red Hot Chili Peppers of course!

Then, for her opening monologue, Melissa and Bobby Moynihan had an aerial battle

The Queen has done it again…

Madonna announced this morning that she and Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis are teaming up on a new grants program that fights for social justice!

The initiative, in coordination with the Art For Freedom project, aims at fueling free speech through artwork, all of which will come from fan submissions! Over the next year, Madge will select one artist EACH MONTH whose work she feels fights oppression, intolerance and complacency!

Oh hellz yes!

Madonna will then award $10,000 to a nonprofit organization, project or charity of the winning artist’s choice!

Madonna got things started with her OWN artistic call to action last month, with her Secretprojectrevolution, a 17-minute video she created with Steven Klein!

Ahhhh… It's all making sense now!

She issued a statement today about her drive to participate in #ArtForFreedom, saying:
