After Beyoncé launched her visual album titled "Lemonade" during an HBO event on Monday night, various other late night hosts, including James Corden, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel, brought out a parody of it.

Corden and Colbert spoofed the visual album with their monologues, even as Kimmel explained the controversy about "Lemonade" with emojis.

The "Lemonade" parody of "The Late Late Show" into "Lemonjames: A Visual Monologue" by James Gorden showed the British host dressed up like Beyoncé from "Lemonade" with "cornrows, a fur jacket and later a sundress."

While her album had been broken into various chapters such as "Denial" and "Resurrection," Corden also borrowed the concept with chapters such as "Truth Bomb,""Hangry" and "Trump Joke."

"A new ice cream shop opened at a former Massachusetts funeral home," Corden deadpanned melodramatically. "They're calling it, 'Casket Robins.' Did that make you laugh, baby? That's one of my own. Does that make you laugh, like Jimmy with the good hair?"

In Colbert's "The Late Show" opening, the "Colbert Report" host dressed up in yellow, walked down a hallway with a large smile on his face, swiping everything around him with a baseball bat.

While Beyoncé's bat had inscribed "Hot Sauce", Colbert's bat parodied it with "mayonnaise." He again spoke about "Lemonade" later in the show and gave five minutes of his monologue to "White-Mansplain".

"This album is about so much more than Beyoncé's marriage: It makes powerful statements about women being disrespected, especially black women, and I know you've been waiting for a white man to explain it to you. The waiting is over," Colbert said.

"Now, if you are white, there may be some stuff in 'Lemonade' that you are not familiar with," the host continued. "For example, Beyoncé refers to the woman Jay Z slept with as 'Becky with the good hair.' Now, you might think Becky is the actual name of the woman, but it turns out that is just a slang term for a kind of valley girl type."

In "Jimmy Kimmel Live!", he explained everything in the film with the help of emojis. His main focus was on rumors that Beyoncé's husband, Jay Z, had had an affair with a woman named Rachel Roy.

"Regular people do their oversharing on Facebook," Kimmel joked. "Beyoncé does it on HBO."
