Sandra Bullock Rapping The Sugarhill Gang Rapper's Delight

Sandra Bullock Shows Off Her Rapping Skills — but Is She as Good as Gwyneth?

Sandra Bullock put her rapping skills on display on the UK's Jonathan Ross Show when she bust out a rendition of The Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight" during an interview. According to Sandra, she first learned the lyrics to the song so she could impress a boy in high school. She said, "I was like, 'Next time I go to that dance, I'm going to know every word. I'm going to make sure he sees me lip-syncing it, and I'm going to catch his eye, and say the words. And he's going to like me.' And sadly it worked." Sandra also later showed off another musical skill, dancing on a giant piano, when she played chopsticks during a Big piano scene reenactment with fellow talk show guest Tom Hanks.

Of course, Sandra isn't the only A-list actress who know how to rap — Gwyneth Paltrow famously showed off her skills when she sang NWA's "Straight Outta Compton" on a different British talk show, The Graham Norton Show, back in 2011. Watch Gwyneth get down with her bad self below.
