After this performance, America might finally stop hating Anne Hathaway.
The nice actress showed up on The Tonight Show last night (April 8) to show off her musical stylings with a little help from host Jimmy Fallon. But Anne wasn’t interested in giving an encore performance of her Oscar-winning role in Les Misérables. No, Anne wanted to show that she’s particularly fond of hip-hop.
But instead of showing off her flow, she decided to stay in her comfort zone, putting a Broadway spin on some of our favorite hip-hop songs.
With Fallon behind the piano, she put on her own Broadway revue, which had her belting out Snoop Dogg’s “Gin & Juice” and getting a little cutesy for her Betty Boop-inspired take on 50 Cent’s “In Da Club.” She let it be known, she doesn’t give a f–k if it’s really your birthday, she just wants to sip some Bacardi and have a swingin’ good time. Jazz hand included.
And, yes, not even Hathaway could kill our vibe when she took on Kendrick Lamar’s “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe,” getting on the piano to show a little leg and let it be known, nobody’s gonna bring her down.
Hathaway’s new film, the animated Rio 2, hits theaters this Friday (April 11).
