Is there anything Gwyneth Paltrow can't do?
The Academy Award winner has previously proven that she can rap N.W.A.'s "Straight Outta Compton" like a boss, and on Wednesday, the Mortdecai actress performed Broadway versions of current hip-hop hits. Back by Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon on piano, Paltrow put her own spin on three rap songs: Drake's "Started From the Bottom," Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" and Big Sean's "I Don't F--k With You."
You've got to see it for yourself.
Earlier in the show, Paltrow recalled her days at Spence School, a private girls' academy in New York City. The actress was in an a capella singing group called Triple Trio, because there were nine members; underclassman Kerry Washington was a big fan. "It was like a really cute barbershop quartet, but nine-tet—however you say that!" Paltrow said with a laugh. "We would sing 'Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.' We would sing Billy Joel's a capella song, 'The Longest Time.' That was my audition song for the group."
Paltrow's family moved from California to New York when she was 11 years old, and her own daughter, Apple Martin, is 10 years old. "She's so big now," the Country Strong actress marveled. "It goes so fast."
