Mic Drop! Rita Wilson Raps Naughty by Nature's "Hip Hop Hooray" in Quarantine
Rita Wilson is making the most out of her time in quarantine. On March 22, the 63-year-old actress and singer shared a video of her getting down to Naughty by Nature's 1993 hit "Hip Hop Hooray." She and husband Tom Hanks are both recovering after contracting the novel coronavirus. The clip starts with Rita reading Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game, but when the famous song comes on, she can't help but rap along. "Quarantine Stir Crazy," she captioned the video. "See it to believe it." Don't be surprised if Ms. Rita drops a mixtape, because she has bars. Let's hope she names it Naughty in Seattle.
Since confirming they tested positive for COVID-19, Tom and Rita have kept their followers updated on their health. On March 17, Tom assured fans that they're doing better. "Good News: One week after testing Positive, in self-isolation, the symptoms are much the same," he wrote on Instagram. "No fever but the blahs. Folding the laundry and doing the dishes leads to a nap on the couch. Bad news: My wife @ritawilson has won 6 straight hands of Gin Rummy and leads by 201 points. . . . We are all in this together. Flatten the curve." So not only is Rita a blossoming rapper, but she's also a gin rummy champion? Range.
