Questlove got in trouble with NBC for playing Fishbone's "Lyin' A– B-–h" as the walk-on song for Michele Bachmann on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” but Bachmann hasn't been his only target.
According to the New York Post, he also had a particular track in mind for Katie Holmes.
Questlove reportedly told Rolling Stone that he wanted to play "She Blinded Me With Science" as the actress walked out, but Jimmy Fallon shut him down.
"That would have been good," the musician laughed, adding that his choice for the starlet was the only song Fallon has ever vetoed.
Questlove told the magazine that because of the Bachmann song debacle, Fallon isn’t his only censor - he now has to clear his song choices with NBC execs.
“It was a real bummer,” Fallon told Rolling Stone about the fallout from the incident, which included an apology to the Republican presidential nominee. “We don’t want to censor anyone, but . . . I don’t know. Maybe Questlove is a Romney guy.”
