Last month, when Gwyneth Paltrow unhumblebragged about her extensive knowledge of rap lyrics, including a complete knowledge of N.W.A.’s “Straight Outta Compton,” amidst the jokes about this new factoid’s utter perfectness in the glass-doored curio cabinet that are this completely un-self-aware Hollywood Princesses’s own quotes about herself, at no point did anyone suggest that she actually PROVE IT. I’m pretty sure we were all happy to leave that one alone. People who play with asking fire to prove it are going to get a horrible fake rap burn. (That worked. The Good Metaphor Police are just staring at their phones waiting for a call, but it is QUIET out there tonight!) No one wanted that, obviously. No one except Graham Fucking Norton, who got her to rap on his talk show. Thanks a lot Graham Norton. You are like the kid who gets the field trip canceled for everybody. You’re eating lunch alone for the rest of the year.
After the jump, Gywneth Paltrow rapping NWA, obviously. (It begins at the 6:20 mark, AFTER she offers everyone some fucking vegetarian paella):
Oh, Gwyneth Paltrow. Just because haters are gonna hate doesn’t mean YOU have to keep doing what YOU’RE doing. (Via Vulture.)
