CNN -- Jimmy Fallon debuts on the Tonight Show and Rihanna adds star power to a gay rights campaign.

Comedian Jimmy Fallon takes the reigns of NBC’s iconic Tonight Show on Monday.

Fallon picks up where Jay Leno left off and becomes the show's sixth host in 60 years.

Notable first guests are set to include actor Will Smith and the band U2.

The Fallon era begins with a big move for the Tonight Show from Los Angeles back to New York.

The show has not been taped there since 1972 when Johnny Carson moved it to the west coast.

Rihanna is backing a campaign aimed at Russia's anti-gay laws and the Sochi Olympic Games.

The singer posted a selfie on Instragram wearing a hat with the P6 logo.

P6 or Principal Six is a campaign that challenges Russia's crackdown on gay rights.

In a subsequent post on Twitter, she linked to more information highlighting the issue.

Finally, at the movie:

For the second week in a row The Lego Movie came in at number one with around $50 million in sales.

Kevin Hart's romantic comedy About Last Night took the number two spot.

Coming in at number three was Roboco.
