Just in time for Academy Awards weekend comes video footage of one-time actress (and Oscar winner) Gwyneth Paltrow singing a karaoke version of “Killing Me Softly.” The Fugees version, needless to say, because who be funkier that Gwynnie P.?
This footage apparently is from the wrap party for her new movie Love Don’t Let Me Down, which apparently finds her as a faded country star falling in love with a country singer played by Garrett Hedlund, soon to be seen as Jeff Bridges’ son in Tron Legacy. (And all of which seems to make it some kinda gloss on Crazy Heart.) Also in the cast are Tim McGraw for verisimilitude and Leighton Meester, positioned awkwardly between the “I used to be a TV star” and “I might be the next Mischa Barton” phases of her career.
But enough of all that. We’re here for some rockin’ Duets-style action. Hit it, blondie!
