Sometimes we use our headlines to tease you and you have to read the whole story to find out what we’re talking about, but not here, not now. Because this is about exactly what we said: SNL’s Jay Pharoah told us during the Very VH1 Spreecast yesterday that he did his spot-on Jay-Z impersonation while getting it on. This may have been our favorite Spreecast moment ever.
“I was about to, uh… explode, and I did Jay-Z’s laugh just so she’d stop, and it worked,” he told host Kate Spencer yesterday. “It messed her up! I was like, ’Ha-ha-ha.’ And she was like, ’Oh my god, why’d you do that? Stop playing!’ ”
Special thanks to Spreecast participant @Sherasaurus for asking a question we would have been too chicken to ask ourselves. And thanks to Jay for being so game. If you missed it yesterday, you can rewatch the entire Spreecast, which also featured Jay’s uncanny impressions of Drake and basically the entire cast of Love and Hip Hop.
