Jameela Jamil's first DJing gig is definitely one for the books.
On Thursday, The Good Place star, who has been DJing for eight years, recalled her first-ever experience behind the booth during her visit to Conan—get this: it was for Sir Elton John's birthday party! After joking that she wanted to become a DJ in order to avoid talking to people at parties, she revealed that a booking agent presented her with the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. There was just one problem: Jameela had never actually DJed before.
"She said, ‘You know, do you DJ?' And, I was like, ‘cause I'm a sociopath, ‘Yes, I do,'" she told host Conan O'Brien. "And because this woman books all the biggest events in London, she was like, ‘Oh, my God! I need a DJ next week for Elton John's birthday party.' And I said yes! And I had one week to learn how to DJ."
To put the moment into Good Place terms, she added, "I am trash. I am Jason Mendoza, not Tahani."
