Millie Bobby Brown Recaps Stranger Things in Rap, Kristen Bell does Metallica
Just in case you want to be reminded that a thirteen year-old has her act way more together than you probably ever will, Stranger Things' Eleven spent her Halloween on The Tonight Show, showing off a t-tight flow, and no, we're not talking blood from her nose (which is bad news, as the song reiterates). The girl can rap:
Having previously performed a Nicki Minaj number, this time MBB (Yeah you know me) came with an original composition to help out viewers jumping on the Stranger Things season 2 train without having seen -- or properly remembered -- season 1. Though we all remember the Eggos; it's not like the show's constant product placement will ever let us leggo of that particular memory. See?
The rhyming meter here is quite sophisticated for a newcomer, mixing it up rather than settling into an easy groove the way a non-rapper would. Like Eleven, it seems Millie Bobby Brown can do anything she puts her mind to, and without the gross fictional consequences.
Thankfully, what she wants to do is entertain us. And the world is better for it.
In other Halloween talk show actress musical number news...Kristen Bell channeled her inner James Hetfield while dressed as Tom Selleck. Yes, that is a real sentence and an accurate summation. You'll see.
