The fabulous Macy Gray appears on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and performs "Beauty in the World", the lead single from her upcoming album The Sellout.
"I really liked the set they designed for me on 'The Tonight Show'," Macy tells Rod 2.0, as we spoke on the phone about an hour ago. "I borrowed it from something John Lennon did.
