So Hollywood actress, Lupita Nyong’o stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about her new movie Queen of Katwe, as well as about important life events like the time she found out Jay Z had mentioned her in the song ‘We Made It’.
‘I felt like the coolest kid ever,’ she said, noting that she’d found out about it from her little brother after he called her screaming. ‘I was like, ‘What are you on about?’ and he sent me the link, and then I heard it!’ she said. ‘I heard, ‘I’m on my Lupita Nyong’o’ and I was like, ‘WHAAAAAT?!’
Yeah! That sound you make when Jigga gives you a shout out on one of his verses.
Lupita said that she then met Jay Z in person at the 2015 Oscars, where he introduced himself by saying, ‘I did good, right?’ (She told him he did). She saw Beyoncé there too, but had met her earlier at the Met Gala in 2014 when Bey came over with Solange to say hello. ‘I was really disgusted with a friend of mine who insisted on taking the photo, and she was so drunk she could barely hold the camera in one place,’ Lupita said.
It’s fine, though, because Beyoncé got a good one.
