Is Gwyneth Paltrow Set To Become A Rapper? 5 Reasons We Think She'd Pull It Off

05 April 2013 by

Gwyneth Paltrow....Hollywood actress, rock-star wife, blogger extraordinaire, macrobiotic chef and now er, rap sensation? It might sound unlikely, but Gwynnie has confessed her love for hip hop in a new interview.

That's right, when she's rustling up a quinoa salad in the kitchen, Gwyneth likes nothing better than to crank up the Public Enemy - although only when her husband Chris Martin, is out. "If he isn't at home I turn up the hip hop," she said. "I'm like a bad mutha rapping along to every word as I cook."

Is it really that suprising though? This is the woman who is best mates with Jay-Z, who she danced onstage with at one of his gigs last year. And it's not the first time she's spoken about loving hip hop. In 2011 she said in an interview: "Between my junior and senior year of high school I discovered N*ggaz With Attitude, which became an obsession...I learnt every word to Straight Outta Compton."

So, is Gwyneth's next move to record a duet with Snoop Dog? Stranger things have happened...especially as the star has shown she loves performing - singing in her movies Country Strong and Duets, appearing in Glee, and performing with Cee-Lo Green at the Grammys. She's even showcased her rapping skills on TV before, too.

Here's five reasons we think she could pull it off...

1. She's already played a pop star in Country Strong


2. She's used to performing at awards ceremonies

3. She's already sang live in big arenas

4. The moves need a little work, but she's getting there

5. She's proved she can rap, kind of, on The Graham Norton Show
