We’ve all mouth-sung guitar solos before, but no one makes a spectacle out of being like the regular folk like Gwenyth Paltrow. The Honorable Lady Goop gave her rendition of the solo from AC/DC’s “You Shook Me All Night Long” last night on The Late Late Show With James Corden.
In Paltrow’s defense though, she does have the solo down pat and does a much more convincing rendition than the drunk 50-year-old dudes who usually mouth-solo. While, Axl Rose’s new gig as AC/DC’s singer is safe, it’s a welcome break from Corden’s mission to Carpool Karaoke with every person who has ever been famous.
Paltrow has showed off her pipes on late-night television before. Remember when she sang Broadway versions of hip-hop songs with Jimmy Fallon? And we have to assume she’ll be doing some singing in that Ryan Murphy anthology series about one-hit wonders called… One Hit Wonders.
And you too can sing like the conscious uncoupler. All you need to do is drink a $200 smoothie every morning and maybe be a little bit more open to getting stung by bees. According to an interview with the actress, she lets herself get stung to stay looking young — she says it’s “painful” — and is open to freezing herself.
