Apparently, The Dark Knight Rises star Anne Hathaway is a victim of unwanted paparazzi attention. So, she wrote an original rap song about it “in the style of Lil Wayne.” Here, she performs it with conviction on Conan (while looking lovely in a floral and lace frock by Erdem). However, Anne is not the first female actress to surprise us with her rap skills. A few months ago, Gwyneth Paltrow blew us away when she demonstrated her ability to rap every word to N.W.A’s “Straight Outta Compton” on BBC One’s Graham Norton Show.
This obviously begs the question: who’s the better rapper? I think Anne and Gwyneth need to have a rap battle somewhere so that this can be determined once and for all.
