During her recent visit to 'The Jonathan Ross Show', the 'Gravity' actress says that she learned how to rap to Sugarhill Gang's 'Rapper's Delight' to impress the guy she liked back in high school.
Sandra Bullock may want to consider a career in rap when she retires from acting. The 49-year-old actress showed off her rapping skill when making a guest appearance on British TV show "The Jonathan Ross Show" during the weekend.
Bullock, who was promoting her new movie "Gravity", performed a few lines of Sugarhill Gang's 1979 classic called "Rapper's Delight". "I need some beats. Gimme some beats, yo," she joked before host Jonathan Ross asked his team to play the music.
Bullock told Ross that she originally learned the tune to impress a boy she liked back in high school. "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,' " she explained. "And sadly it worked."
Bullock added that she and co-star George Clooney practiced the song together during their downtime on the set of "Gravity".
