Gwyneth Paltrow Shows Off Rap Skills on 'The Graham Norton Show' (VIDEO)

Gwyneth Paltrow, 'The Graham Norton Show'Gwyneth Paltrow has long proven herself as a so-called "double threat" in the entertainment industry. She's endeared herself as a singer to a whole new generation with her turn as Holly Holiday on 'Glee,' featuring on several hit tracks for the musical series.

Now, thanks to her turn on 'The Graham Norton Show' (Sat., 10PM ET on BBC America), we can add hardcore ganster rapper to her repertoire.

Graham Norton tried to stump her on '90s hip-hop, but he didn't go very obscure with it. Paltrow immediately identified 'Straight Outta Compton' as the groundbreaking debut album by N.W.A.

More impressively, though, she knew the lyrics to the title track, though she did clarify: "There's one word I can't say." The rest, Norton assured us, could be censored.

And suddenly Paltrow was Ice Cube, spitting rhymes with impressive recall to all the twists and turns of the opening lines. She didn't go very far into it, but it was so unexpected and bizarre, it was simply delightful to watch.
