Anne Hathaway and Jimmy Fallon Perform Broadway Versions of Rap Hits: VIDEO

Hatha

Jimmy Fallon is known for presenting off-beat musical interludes on his late night talk show (e.g. Idina, Paul Rudd, The Boss, Miley, JGL, JT, Mariah et al). The latest installment? Anne Hathaway pairing up with the funny-man to perform Broadway versions of rap songs. The duo covered Snoop Dogg’s “Gin and Juice,” 50 Cent’s “In Da Club,” and Kendrick Lamar’s “B---- Don’t Kill My Vibe.”

Anne even gives a shout out to all the “Hatha-haters” out there.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP…

  2. I think it's brilliantly funny (and Hathaway looks absolutely smashing). Some folks over at The Grio are going completely nuts over this sketch and screaming about "cultural appropriation" and white people gutting/destroying rap; lighten up, folks, it's a silly parody. Just enjoy the talent and the cleverness.

  3. So Jimmy Fallon is ripping off Kiki & Herb's schtick? I'm sure Kiki DuRane would have killed it!

  5. Qj201- Justin Bond didn't invent the idea of making fun of cheesy torch song/cabaret people with modern songs. Act was great but it wasn't groundbreaking

  6. Last night, Fallon played Tom Petty and joined Stevie Nicks for a live re-creation of the 1981 hit, "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" .. lol!

  7. Cultural appropriation rocks, it has always been the rule of the world, problem is with rap it's sub cultural and has no business being appropriated except for the purposes of mockery.

  8. Yeah, nice job, too bad the source material is such crap. Time better spent doing something actually good.

  10. Those songs sound better that way, and it's the best thing Anne's ever done.
