Watch out, Mom. He'll be bigger than you in no time.

In just over a month, the baby giraffe that gained a following when his mother, April, was pregnant with him, is growing up big and strong.

Tajiri (Swahili for "hope") is now 6-foot-4-inches tall and 200 pounds. The baby stood at 5-foot-9-inches tall when he was born on April 15.

He is happy and doing well with April and his dad, Oliver, at Animal Adventure Park in upstate New York.

[[423346234, C]]

The zoo is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

April gave birth to Tajiri on April 15 at the privately owned zoo. It was her fourth calf, but the first for Oliver.

[[417818823, C]]

Visitors are expected to flood the zoo for its fifth season after April's pregnancy became the second most livestreamed channel in YouTube history, with more than 232 million live views during a seven-week period.

<![CDATA[Trump Team Sings 'Hallelujah' for the Season Finale of 'SNL']]> Sun, 21 May 2017 08:53:11 -0400 http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/222*120/Screen+Shot+2017-05-21+at+1.12.05+AM.png

In a quieter "Saturday Night Live" cold open, SNL's Trump administration serenaded the audience with Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" ballad.

Alec Baldwin's President Donald Trump was seated at the piano in a reprising of the song Kate McKinnon's Hillary Clinton performed on "SNL" immediately following the election in November.

But unlike the solo Clinton performance, Trump was not alone. He was accompanied by key members of his administration: Kellyanne Conway (Kate McKinnon), Mike Pence (Beck Bennett), Melania Trump (Cecily Strong), Sarah Huckabee Sanders (Aidy Bryant), Eric Trump (Alex Moffatt) and Donald Trump Jr. (Mikey Day).

Scarlett Johansson made a guest appearance as Ivanka Trump and Stephen Bannon was portrayed as the Grim Reaper. 

"I'm not giving up because I didn't do anything wrong," Baldwin's Trump said at the end of the song. "But I can't speak for these people."

[[423405874, C]]

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson hosted "SNL" for the fifth time, and was inaugurated into the "Five-Timers Club" with a black robe presented by Baldwin. In his opening monologue he followed up on comments he made to GQ earlier this month about the "real possibility" of a presidential run. 

"Tonight I wanna put this to rest and just say once and for all: I'm in. Starting tonight, I am running for president of the United States," the actor joked.

Johnson said he had never considered a run for the White House in the past, but now he's worried he's "too qualified" for the job.

And his running mate? None other than fellow "SNL" five-timer Tom Hanks, who joined Johnson for the monologue. 

"The truth is, America needs us," Hanks said. "No one can seem to agree on anything anymore, except for two things: pizza and us." 

Johnson and Hanks plan to draw on their past movie roles to lead the country and win the hearts of the voters.

"When it comes to politics, we need more poise and less noise," Johnson said seriously. "Americans deserve strong, capable leaders. Leaders who care about this country and care about its people." 

The monologue ended with the unveiling of a Johnson-Hanks 2020 banner and red, white and blue confetti. 

[[423412864, C]]

Colin Jost and Michael Che kicked off "Weekend Update" with a familiar line.

"I know I said this last week, but this week is crazy," Jost said. 

In reviewing some of the breaking stories that were published this week about the administration, Jost said that Trump is not on the way out yet, but "Mike Pence is warming up in the bullpen." 

"You're not a real politician," Che said about Trump. "You're a politician like Ja Rule is a festival organizer," referencing the rapper's failed attempt at creating the Fyre Festival.  

Jost noted that Trump will be giving a speech during his time in Saudi Arabia about Islam. He said that Trump giving the speech is "like Mike Pence giving a toast at a gay wedding."

The segment about the administration ended with a reel of "all the people Trump has lost this year" to Daniel Powter's "Bad Day." Included in the slideshow were pictures of Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, Chris Christie, Rudy Giuliani and Sean Spicer, with the words "shhh, he doesn't know it yet."

Katy Perry was the musical guest this week. She performed two songs, "Swish Swish" and "Bon Appetit."

<![CDATA[Fans Camp Out for Tickets to the 'SNL' Season Finale]]> Sat, 20 May 2017 14:10:55 -0400 http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/236*120/cms808.jpg

Live from New York, it's the last "Saturday Night Live" of the season. 

That's why dedicated fans have been camped outside the studio since Friday waiting for tickets to the variety show. Stand-by tickets are distributed at 7 a.m. Saturday on a first-come, first-served basis. 

The two fans at the front of the line drove from Delaware County, Pennsylvania, about two hours away from 30 Rockefeller Plaza. 

"We packed sleeping bags and chairs and we've just been sitting here since," Macy Barbacano said. 

[[420703013, C]]

Barbacano said one of the reasons that compelled her to make the trip was Alec Baldwin's portrayal of President Donald Trump, a recurring skit that has contributed to "SNL's" high ratings this season. 

Season 42 of "SNL" ran from October through May, and was plenty political, covering the presidential election and the Trump administration. Notable performances include Beck Bennett as Russian President Vladimir Putin, Melissa McCarthy as Press Secretary Sean "Spicey" Spicer and Kate McKinnon as Hillary Clinton and White House adviser Kellyanne Conway. 

[[422192634, C]]

The season finale will also be the last show for cast member Bobby Moynihan, who has been part of "SNL" for nine seasons. Moynihan is leaving the show to pursue a comedy series with CBS, "Me, Myself, & I," that he is set to star in for the 2017-18 season.

It will be the fifth time Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will host "SNL." Katy Perry is this week's musical guest.

<![CDATA[Toby Keith to Perform at Men-Only Concert in Saudi Arabia]]> Fri, 19 May 2017 23:24:45 -0400 http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/213*120/AP_17019857706997.jpg

American country music star Toby Keith is scheduled to perform at a men-only concert in Saudi Arabia — on the same weekend that President Donald Trump will be visiting the nation, NBC News reported.

Saudi entertainment website Lammt, which is marketing the event, said Saturday's concert would be free but open to men only.

Keith spokeswoman Elaine Schock offered "no comment" on the male-only aspect of the show.

Trump is scheduled to travel to Saudi Arabia, Israel and the Vatican before attending attending the G7 and NATO summit in Taormina, Italy, and Brussels, respectively.

<![CDATA[Amandla Stenberg Is Ready to be a Voice for Her Generation]]> Fri, 19 May 2017 18:34:29 -0400 http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/213*120/GettyImages-672018906.jpg

Eighteen-year-old actress, activist and all-around talent Amandla Stenberg is OK with being considered a voice for her generation.

"I kind of accept that responsibility," she said in a recent interview. "I realize that I have this very unique privilege of gaining this attention from a lot of people, whether it's through the internet or through movies, and so I feel like I have no other option than to try to utilize that well, otherwise I feel like it would all be pointless."

Stenberg has gotten attention for her non-binary gender identity, interviewing Gloria Steinem and making a video for her high school's senior class project that went viral, in which she calls out Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and other stars for appropriating black culture. It's enough to make you forget she played Rue in 2012's "The Hunger Games."

Now Stenberg stars in the new young-adult romance opening Friday, "Everything, Everything." She also recorded a song for the film's soundtrack, then starred in, directed and edited its music video .

Stenberg said she wanted to make the movie because it's a whimsical love story with a black girl at its center, yet it has nothing to do with race.

"When I was a kid, I wish I could see myself in media in that way, and see myself in media that... wasn't necessarily pointing out or creating a dialogue around my race," she said. "I wish I could have just seen myself existing onscreen, so with this film I got to fulfill that desire in a really powerful and incredible way."

Getting an opportunity to record one of her favorite songs (Mac DeMarco's "Let My Baby Stay") and make her own music video was an unexpected bonus.

"It's probably the most authentically me thing you can watch, just because I got to control every aspect of it," Stenberg said.

Now that she's gotten a taste of recording and directing, she intends to do more of both, she said. And of course she'll continue acting and writing and speaking out.

That outspokenness is partially what drew Tony Award-winning actress Anika Noni Rose to "Everything, Everything."

"I think she's extraordinarily smart, forward-thinking and socially conscious," Rose said of Stenberg.

Stenberg says activism is a part of her and thus a part of her work, and chances are she may not always get everything right.

"I do think there are times when people assume because I've said some things or have certain mentalities that I know everything and I definitely don't. I'm only 18 and still kind of collecting information about the world by observing it and living in it," she said. "It's important sometimes for people to realize that it's inevitable that I'm going to, in some ways, make mistakes. Or not even make mistakes, but just be someone who's figuring it out."

<![CDATA[Ex-'Dance Moms' Star: Money Brought to US Wasn't Mine]]> Fri, 19 May 2017 15:09:39 -0400 http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/213*120/AP_918270442466.jpg

Former "Dance Moms" reality TV star Abby Lee Miller says the $120,000 she’s accused of smuggling into the United States was not hers and that “she hasn’t seen it since it's come back.”

“My attorney said if i haven’t seen it in three years, it’s not mine,” Miller said Friday in an interview on the “Wendy Williams Show.”

According to Miller, several dancers from the show, along with their equally famous mothers, were in Australia for a publicity event. She said tickets to attend the “Master Class” conference were purchased electronically online during the registration process, “and that goes straight to a bank.”

“The moms were out in the lobby area, they are selling the merchandise, taking pictures,” Miller said, noting those transactions were made in cash because they were told “you can’t get a credit card machine in other countries unless you have a bank account in that country, and you rent them from the bank.”

Miller, who was sentenced Tuesday to a year and a day in prison for bankruptcy fraud and for bringing the Australian currency into the U.S., alleged that she personally was carrying less than $10,000. By law, all travelers carrying in excess of $10,000 must declare it at Customs. Asked if people in her group traveling for the event were carrying money for her, Miller said “that’s debatable.” 

“I can show you all the moms’ 1099s for what they made,” Miller said.

The reality star also said she regrets filing for bankruptcy after the 2008 financial crash. Miller explained that she opened the studio at a time when the community was “thriving” and most of the students were from the area. But several years later it was “not a good neighborhood anymore.”

“Not one kid in that zip code went to my studio,” Miller said. “Everyone was driving in hours to get to me.”

Miller filed for bankruptcy after defaulting on a $245,000 Florida condominium mortgage and a $96,000 mortgage on her dance studio in Penn Hills, a Pittsburgh suburb, her bankruptcy lawyer said. She said keeping up with the bills in a down economy became difficult.

“But what really happened, when I refinanced the [dance studio] building, they didn’t put the taxes into escrow and I did not know that. I was not aware of that,” Miller explained. “And they always had been because when you build a building they are automatically included. So I owed $37,000. So this whole entire thing, and me going to jail, is over $37,000.”

Prosecutors said Miller repeatedly hid her true income and contracts for future income from her TV shows until her channel-surfing bankruptcy judge saw her on TV and concluded she must be making far more than the $8,899 in monthly income she initially declared. She told Williams the bankruptcy was filed before she was ever on the show “Dance Moms,” and didn’t understand why the two cases were conflated.

The "Dance Moms" star was known for her brash behavior and pursuit of perfectionism from her dance students. The show follows a class of Miller's elite students and the perilous relationship she has with the girls' mothers. Critics of "Dance Moms" accuse Miller of being emotionally abusive toward the girls, and many episodes show her students dissolving into tears after a harsh critique.

Miller also accused Lifetime of conning her into signing a 4-year contract “in the dark.” She said she started off as a choreographer on “Dance Moms,” and allowed the network to use her building “for free” to film the show. According to Miller, producers from the show told her she had to sign an appearance release during one of the dance competitions and said the other parents had already signed it.

“I was a 4-year contract with a 4-year option,” she said.

Miller said she regrets ever being on TV and revealed where she is eating her last meal before she begins her prison sentence.

"Red Lobster," she said. "Because I like the biscuits."

<![CDATA['Tonight': Dwayne Johnson on Running for President]]> Fri, 19 May 2017 04:44:43 -0400 http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/213*120/Screen-Shot-2017-05-19-at-4.43.44-AM.jpg

Jimmy Fallon sits down with Dwanye "The Rock" Johnson, who addresses the rumor that he may run for president. The actor says he has what the people want.

<![CDATA['The Rock' Gets to the Bottom of That Presidential Rumor]]> Fri, 19 May 2017 09:11:06 -0400 http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/213*120/Screen-Shot-2017-05-19-at-4.30.50-AM.jpg

It’s the story that keeps on running — that’s how Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson described the tenacious rumor that he'll run for president of the United States. But the thing is, he didn’t exactly deny the rumor.

Johnson sat down with Jimmy Fallon on the “Tonight Show” Thursday to talk about the possibility of America one day having the wrestler-turned-pop culture icon as president, an idea that drew enthusiastic cheers and applause from the studio audience.

“I’m so incredibly flattered,” Johnson said. “I’ve been blown away.”

The actor wasn’t shy about suggesting a reason why so many people may want him running the country.

“A lot of people want to see a different leadership today,” he said. “Or, I’m sorry, a better leadership today.”

“More poise, less noise,” Johnson added, sounding like a seasoned campaigner already.

The talk about Johnson running for president began last year when he joked about it with his 11.3 million Twitter followers. The conversation grew from there, with publications such as The Washington Post weighing Johnson's background, experience and political chops.

The issue may be getting more serious than just internet buzz. He told GQ for its June cover story that he was considering running

"I think that it's a real possibility," the "Baywatch" actor confessed.

On "Tonight," Johnson referred to a May 16 poll by Public Policy Polling that matched him up against President Donald Trump in a hypothetical 2020 election. The “Sexiest Man Alive” beat America’s current leader 42–37.

While Johnson remained humble at the thought of having so much support, he seemed confident — and proud — that he has the qualities voters crave.

“Over the years I’ve become a guy that a lot of people relate to,” he told Fallon. “Get up early in the morning at a ridiculous hour, go to work and spend time with the troops, take care of my family. I love taking care of people. That kind of thing really resonates with people, especially today.”

“Three and a half years is a long way away,” Johnson concluded. “So we’ll see.”

All political talk aside, Johnson’s appearance on the “Tonight” stage wasn’t without its fun. He and Fallon talked about the GQ story, which includes photos of Johnson frolicking on Los Angeles' Venice Beach, dressing as a butterfly, serving up some juice (with his shirt open, of course), and showing off matching tribal tattoos with some young fans.

And, in true “Rock” fashion, Johnson even walked onto the show with his cellphone in hand and recording, not completely unexpected for a guy who has more than 143 million Instagram and Facebook followers. Because the social media superstar is remaining coy, only time will tell if he’ll someday update those followers from the Oval Office.

Even though this week has been, as Seth Meyers calls it, "insane," the host argues it shouldn't be a surprise — because President Donald Trump talked about exactly these situations during the campaign.
