Rapping in front of Justin Timberlake gave Zooey Deschanel jitters
Singer Zooey Deschanel was nervous rapping in front of singer Justin Timberlake.
The ‘New Girl’ star had to rap in front of the ‘Like I love you’ hitmaker for their new movie Trolls and wasn’t feeling too confident about it like her co-star James Corden, reports femalefirst.co.uk. “I think we had a similar experience where I had to spend half a day singing in front of Justin Timberlake in a recording studio, which is terrifying. But you had to go one further; you had to rap,” Corden said at his TV show ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden’. Deschanel added, “They’re like, ‘How do you feel about rapping?’ I was like, ‘Wait, um, I’m sorry I didn’t realise that the rap was supposed to be me rapping, I thought that was for somebody else.’ Of course it wouldn’t be me - I’m not a rapper, now I am.
“Justin Timberlake’s there, he’s like, ‘So you want to take a minute to go over it?’ I’m like, hell yes. So I go in the other room and I listened to this rap like 20,000 times and then I went in there and did it,” she added.
