Take a look at this GIF. What song do you think Brittany Snow is singing?
Judging by her nerdy, semi-theatric gestures, it looks like she could be tackling one of her vanilla-flavored “Pitch Perfect” hits like “I Saw The Sign,” right? But in fact, the song in question is none other than Coolio’s 1995 hit “Gangsta’s Paradise.” Yes, really.
During an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” the 29-year-old actress revealed that she and her “Pitch Perfect 2” costars used to frequent karaoke clubs together when they were done filming (meaning that, yes, they spent all day singing on set followed by MORE singing at night).
Anyway, she then revealed her go-to karaoke song is “Gangsta’s Paradise.” Naturally, Ellen couldn’t just take Snow’s word for it — if you lay a bold claim like that, you best believe you’ll have to back it up with some proof that you’re “an educated fool with money on my mind.”
Snow more than delivered, nailing the entire first verse — while wearing a little dress with a Peter Pan collar, no less (a.k.a., the least gangster thing anyone has ever worn).

Brava, Brittany! Keep doing you.
