Unlikely rapper of the day: Gwyneth Paltrow

So by now, you’ve probably heard about last night’s Jay-Z concert in London, the one that featured guest appearances by Beyoncé (performing ”Crazy in Love” and ”Déjà Vu”), Coldplay’s Chris Martin (on ”Heart Of The City (Ain’t No Love)”), and most surprisingly, Martin’s wife, Gwyneth Paltrow, who showed up to provide backing vocals on ”Song Cry.” (Maybe she was just seeking a creative way to celebrate her 34th birthday.) What you may not have heard (probably because it didn’t happen) was the way Gwyn-P grabbed the mic from Jigga himself and proceeded to throw down her own rap interlude during Crazy in Love.” PopWatch has the lyrics; we’ll leave it to you guys to judge her flow.

Young Moses
He know his mom’s flow is loco
Young Ap to the p-l-e, uh-oh
Jay-Z, Gwyn’s homie
The one and only
I’m stick boney, but my Oscar is fat like Mo’Nique
(And Soprano)

The Gwyn handles
Like Van Axel
I rocked Shakespeare man, you can’t get next to
The genuine article, in Duets I sing, oh
I sling though, and at my premieres, I bling yo
A star like Ringo

Roll down the red carpet
Coldplay, bring ya whole set
Gwyneth’s got the range! Her rivals got the mange!
They can’t figure her out, they like, ”Her accent is insane!”
Yes sir, I’m known to hang with Madonna
My Mom’s got two Emmys, and I’ve got an Oscah

Been avoiding the tabloid press
How you think I avoid looking stressed?
Realer than Lohan, I’m no hot mess,
Fall back men, ever since my head got boxed in Se7en
I’ve been movie heaven!
