Anne Hathaway Lip Syncs To Miley Cyrus And Yes, She Rides A Wrecking Ball
This new show Lip Sync Battle is turning out to be pretty damn awesome. There are few things I enjoy more than watching my favorite celebrities act silly, and when there's music and middle fingers thrown in it's even better. Last week we got to enjoy The Rock's take on Taylor Swift, and this week we'll get to see Anne Hathaway do her best rendition of Miley Cyrus' “Wrecking Ball.” And don't worry, the show has already released a preview clip, and it is SPECTACULAR. She really put all that hammy energy to good use. It might not work during award season, but it works here.
When she comes out, she's all done up in Miley's signature wife beater, slicked-back hair and scary fingernails, and she gives the performance plenty of energy. But then again, no one ever complained that Anne Hathaway has too much energy. (Sorry, I still have a little residual hathahate in me, but I swear I've seen the error of my ways.) Then at some point she takes off her track pants to reveal tighty whities like Miley wears. Wow, remember when the “Wrecking Ball” video came out and we all collectively WTFed behind our individual computers? Good times.
Then Anne jumps on a wrecking ball, gives her opponent Emily Blunt the finger (oh you two, still acting like Andy and Em), and just swings away. The preview gives us just enough to be totally psyched, but not there's still plenty that I need to see. Does Anne swing a sledgehammer at any point? Does she smash said sledgehammer into a photo of James Franco? These are very important questions, and I'm definitely tuning in to Spike on Thursday night to find out the answers. Bless you, Anne Hathaway. You're a champ.
