'Late Night With Seth Meyers'

A lot of women are feeling empowered by Beyonce's Lemonade HBO special. Including, it seems, the female staffers at Late Night with Seth Meyers.

On Thursday night's show, Meyers shared a video in which the men of Late Night were confronted with the bat-wielding, middle finger-thrusting, copy machine-adjacent twerking of female colleagues who clearly drew some inspiration from Bey's take-no-prisoners short film.

"A very empowering message from Beyonce, so empowering I can't help but notice I feel like it's affected the women in our office," said Meyers.

What followed were scenes of a staffer named "Queen Jenny" refusing to give up her stapler and offering up a one-finger salute instead and a writer in Bey's signature yellow dress taking some constructive criticism from Meyers on her sketch idea ... and then smashing in his office window with a bat.

The episode also featured a drop by from Iggy Azalea, who helped Meyer decipher some of the latest teen slang. Among the terms he tried to explain were party-starting adjectives such as "lit."

But, because he's 42 and nobody wants to hear an guy that age explain teen talk, he had Azalea try her hand at a series of increasingly ridiculous phrases including "Bowladex" (the list of people you call for weed), "Brooch-ella" (a concert attended by mostly middle-aged ladies) and "WhileFi" (the socially acceptable amount of time you need to be at someone's party before asking for the wifi password).

Watch Azalea provide the proper context:
