Your lifestyle, your quirk
Gwyneth Paltrow doesn’t rap for just anyone. Hell, she’s never even appeared on the red carpet next to her husband of nine years, Chris Martin. So, Chelsea Handler, consider yourself one lucky lady.
Gwyneth and Chelsea have been friends for years, and they must be closer than we realize, because Gwyneth felt comfortable enough to teasingly bash Chelsea in a rap that has gone viral over the weekend. What makes the rap even better is that she’s not alone – none other than Cameron Diaz is beat boxing right alongside Gwyneth, while the 40-year-old actress dropped lines like, “Yo, Chelsea. We heard that you got a brand new studio. But we know that you got on TV by being a ho.”
I love that we live in an age where females can be comediennes – and not just any old knock-knock joke-telling funnywoman, but the self-depreciating, raunchy, and foul-mouthed humorous approach that men have been making a living with for years.
Women have been rising in this genre of humor in the recent times, and Chelsea is certainly among the leaders. The 37-year-old has used her comedy to help her become a bestselling author, actress, and producer, as well as host of her own late night talk show (a role traditionally associated with male comedians) since 2007.
Plus, you just have to hand it to anyone who can inspire celebrities like Gwyneth and Cameron, who are traditionally taken very seriously, to throw down and simply act goofy for the whole world to see.
More gems Gweynth rapped include the lines, “You like black guys, white guys, whoever's around. Your bedroom looks like it's a lost and found. We kinda like you because you're blonde like us, but we can't hang wit' you in public 'cause you drink too much!"
She even referenced Chelsea’s relationship with rapper 50 Cent, which was an odd pairing – even for Chelsea.
Although Cameron doesn’t actually say anything on the video, her facial expressions and poor beat boxing are enough to make an impression and inspire a smile. My guess is that she was mainly there as friendly female support for Gwyneth.
What did Chelsea think of the rap? She must have agreed that it was funny, as she shared it on her show, introducing her pals as "Emcee Gwyneth Paltrow" and "Deejay Jazzy Cameron Diaz."
Honestly, I would like to more celebrities who are generally taken quite seriously just let lose and rap a la Gwyneth. Can’t you just see Nicole Kidman doing this?
