Gwyneth Paltrow and Jimmy Fallon sang Broadway versions of hip hop songs from Nicki Minaj, Big Sean and Drake on Wednesday’s “Tonight Show,” and the results were hilarious (video below). Paltrow, dressed in an all-pink outfit, belted out cheery show tune renditions of the sometimes explicit songs, accompanied by Fallon behind a piano.
The Oscar-winning actress, who has showcased her singing chops on “Glee,” first sang a showy version of Drake’s “Started From The Bottom.” After that, she and Fallon sang Minaj’s “Anaconda” to a tune reminiscent of the song “Stray Cat Strut.” Fallon began by crooning, “Boy toy named Troy used to live in Detroit. Big dope dealer money, he was getting some coins.” Paltrow then cut in with the song’s verse, “My Anaconda don’t want none unless you got buns hun.”
Paltrow and Fallon’s third and last number was Big Sean’s “I Don’t F*ck With You.” With the sunny dispositions of Broadway musical stars, the two smiled as they belted out the lyrics, “I don’t f*ck with you, you little stupid ass b*tch. I ain’t f*ckin’ with you, you little dumb ass b*tch.” Paltrow ended with an “Ol’ Man River”-type slow and low finish of “I don’t f*ck with you, you little stupid ass b*tch.” Like a Broadway show, roses were thrown onto the stage when the pair finished singing.
