Lupita Nyong'o Talks Poop and Porn on 'Billy On The Street'

Lupita Nyong'o, Oscar-winning star of 12 Years A Slave, guests on "Billy On The Street" to joke about goat sex, Asian porn, and poop.

If you like constant screaming and prolific cursing, then "Billy On The Street" is for you. But you probably wouldn't expect Lupita Nyong'o, the Oscar-winning star of 12 Years a Slave, to pop up on the show.


They have the tiny actor running around Manhattan streets yelling profanity at random passersby. Billy's general premise for the skit is whether Nyong'o should be a comedian or not. So he's got her quoting routines from such high-minded comics as Bob Saget, Andrew Dice Clay and others, covering philosophical topics like goat sex, Asian porn, and poop.

But Nyong'o is game, and she dutifully recites her cringe-worthy lines to the unsuspecting victims, albeit with a deadpan delivery. Problem is, the people are generally not amused. "That's not funny," one guy says, before getting his hat nearly knocked off his head as Billy rushes off in disgust at his lack of taste.

Most don't laugh at the jokes, although some are definitely psyched to meet her. "Can I take a picture?" another interviewee asks excitedly. "No you can not!" screams Billy, before launching into his explanation for running up on them.

So is she funny? Maybe. But we'll never really know from the Billy show. It's cool she gave it a shot, though. I guess.

Rema Welcomes 2021 With New Single 'Bounce'

The Don Jazzy produced track reminds us of why the Nigerian singer-songwriter is topping charts.

Nigerian golden boy Rema took his time on deciding how to start of 2021—and we're glad he did.

The afropop hitmaker is out with his first project of the year, "Bounce", after stunning fans with word of an upcoming album, and the cooks in this kitchen have not disappointed.

Keeping it in the Mavin Records family, legendary producer Don Jazzy sprinkles his magic on the track, while undoubtedly motivating the young singer-songwriter to be his best self. And with this track being like nothing we've heard from Rema before, one could say Jazzy succeeded. "Bounce", fast-paced and fierce, is a love song dedicated to bewitchingly beautiful and blessed bottoms. The candid declaration and hip shaking beat are a force duo and we can't help but love it.

Of the single and collaboration with head honcho Don Jazzy, Rema says, "This record was inspired by the luscious and magnificent body of the African woman. Furthermore, I'm really excited about this tune because it's my first single with the legendary Don Jazzy."

Honestly, when you start the year off with a banger, you get to make songs about butts.
