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.

Tems Is Just Doing Her Thang In New Music Video 'Crazy Tings'

The Nigerian songstress is hell bent on taking over your summer playlist and it's getting harder to resist.

It has been a fantastic year for Tems. The Nigerian singer, producer, and songwriter achieved a platinum record for eternal banger Essence, her collaboration with fellow Nigerian superstar Wizkid, an MTV EMA nomination for Best African Artist, a billion worldwide video views, and over 350 million audio streams. Not to mention featuring on Canadian rapper Drake's blowout album Certified Lover Boy, the singer has also sold out every show she's booked.

The release of Tems's sophomore EP If Orange Was a Place solidified her place amongst the greats and it was received with gusto by fans and international audiences. A month after the release the Afrobeats singer has graced fans with a sultry music video to go along with equally as tantalizing lead single Crazy Tings. Conceptualized by the multitalented Tems, and directed by UAX, the music video follows a sensual Tems as she sings about needing space from a lying partner.

International audiences continue to rave over the songstress, with Tems delivering an impressive US TV debut on late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! this month. Essence continues to top international charts. While becoming the official song of the summer, the track peaked on the Billboard 100 Top 10, becoming the most Shazamed song in the United States and was remixed by Canadian musical heavyweight Justin Bieber, becoming the first song written by Nigerian artists to hit No.1 on Urban Radio.

Tems has been producing consistent hits since her debut in September 2020, and a year later, the singer's immense talent is securing her reputation as a world-class superstar.
