While we at EW like to live every week like it’s Shark Week, it looks like Gwyneth Paltrow’s on a whole other tip right now.
As Lady GOOP’s latest newsletter invaded inboxes across America Thursday, readers learned not only what Paltrow had for breakfast (crepes) and what TV show’s she been obsessing over (Homeland), but also that she’s been rap strong this week.
“It’s Hip Hop Week,” reads the newsletter, before delving into a trio of tracks that the actress has been jamming these days. Unsurprisingly, one of her pick is “Clique,” the Cruel Summer single featuring Big Sean, Jay-Z, and Kanye West. She’s also been getting into “F—ing Problem,” the A$AP Rocky song that counts Kendrick Lamar, Drake, and 2 Chainz as guests. Lastly — and rather oddly — is “Bad Ass Strippa,” the 2004 track from Romani-British rapper Jentina that was later mocked by Lady Sovereign in “Sad Ass Strippa.”
You can listen to all of GOOP’s hip-hop week picks with the videos below. But first, be sure to heed Gwyneth’s post-script warning: “Explicit lyrics. Do with that information what you will…”
