Having previously established her cred among wanly smiling personal assistants with her impromptu rendition of N.W.A.'s "Gangsta Gangsta," her preserving of several carefully selected "jams" in vintage apothecary jars, and of course, her close relationship with noted rapper James-Z, Gwyneth Paltrow has finally made her own foray into hip-hop, dropping her first freestyle verse on Chelsea Lately with all the gleeful, "fuck it" abandon of throwing mint into your spirulina protein shake.


The occasion was the commemorating of a new studio for Chelsea Handler, who introduced the duo of "MC Gwyneth Paltrow and DJ Jazzy Cameron Diaz," and somehow this nexus of cringe-inducing wordplay involving irritating blonde women only became deeper and darker (though definitely not any blacker) from there. Diaz supplied the spluttering approximation of beatboxing, while Paltrow swapped out her normal vowel sounds and enunciations for more seasonally appropriate perennials, ya hurrrrrd?, and the result was this, the first shot fired in an inevitable battle with these other rapping robots. Yo! etc. [via Vulture]
