Anne Hathaway and Jimmy Fallon Perform Broadway Versions of Rap Songs [Video]
Take a seat, Anne Hathaway haters aka “Hathahaters.” The Oscar-winning actress totally won our hearts when she appeared on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,’ performing Broadway versions of rap hits with the host, who tickled the ivories and backed her up.
Hathaway and Fallon were breaking it down when they rocked Snoop Dogg‘s ‘Gin and Juice,’ 50 Cent‘s ‘In Da Club’ and Kendrick Lamar‘s ‘Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe.’ That’s quite a trio of songs that you don’t usually think of as ready for a showtune makeover, but the actress and the late night host were game and gave it a try.
Did they succeed? Oh, hell yes!
Hathaway, looking lovely in a black gown, got into it, belting out the medley and even hopping up on the piano to get all sorts of suggestive with Fallon.
She also directly addressed her haters in the coda, before hitting a huge note.
At about the 3:25 mark, Hathaway referenced the haters, saying, “dirty, Hathahatin’ b—h a– b—h don’t kill my vibe.” Who knew that Hathaway and Fallon could give rap hits such a makeover or that Anne, who is usually the picture of grace and class, could have such a potty mouth?
Nice work, guys!
And big ups to Anne Hathaway for having a sense of humor about herself on national TV. Did she win the haters over, just a little, tiny bit? We hope so.
