Melissa McCarthy states her claim to tour with Billie Eilish.
The newly announced “Little Big Shots” host expressed her love for Eilish’s music on Thursday’s episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”. McCarthy, 48, claimed she would be a great hype-woman for Eilish and put together a video proving as much.
In the video, McCarthy interjects herself into a number of Eilish’s scenes from the “Bad Guy” music video. In one scene, Eilish sings with a stone-cold gaze as blood drips from her nose. McCarthy, on the other hand, struggles with the faucet of blood pouring from her nostrils.
McCarthy was a little nervous taking over for Ellen DeGeneres on the latter’s day-time talk show. Thank goodness McCarthy’s fellow comedian Maya Rudolph was there to calm her nerves.
Rudolph appeared as McCarthy’s guest for Thursday’s episode and the “Saturday Night Live” alum helped soothe McCarthy’s anxiety by singing her a Beyonce lullaby.
This year McCarthy will star in the action comedy “Super Intelligence” with James Corden and husband Ben Falcone, as well as the crime drama “The Kitchen” opposite Tiffany Haddish and Elisabeth Moss.
