Rebel Wilson, Ellen DeGeneres rap 'Shoop': 'I like 'em real wild' -- VIDEO

Posted on

Rebel Wilson has been chatting up a storm on late night. First, there was that whole thing where she admitted to learning American English from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. Then, she terrorized Walter White himself on The Tonight Show. Now she’s joined Ellen DeGeneres for a badass rendition of Salt-N-Pepa’s “Shoop.”

While visiting Ellen to promote her “aca-awesome” movie Pitch Perfect, Wilson confessed that she’d always wanted to rap with DeGeneres. “I did once have a dream that I rapped with you,” the Australian actress said. “Like a double act. I had a great act with my sister. She’s kind of fallen off the wagon… Gotten a job, she’s not so gangster any more. I had a dream that I just rapped with you and the audience just went crazy.”

At that, the audience started to clap, prompting Wilson to declare laughingly, “I think they want us to do something.” What ensued was a choreographed sequence of sheer fabulousness. Check it out below:
