On Tuesday, Gwyneth Paltrow revealed that the hit song Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, “WAP,” was her orientation when she felt bad.
“We’ve talked about music before, so I have to ask, what songs do you go to when you fall?” Kelly Clarkson asked Paltrow in an interview with The Kelly Clarkson Show.
Without hesitation, the “Politician” star replied, “Wet A– P —-,” which was to be kicked out of the show.
To her shock, Clarkson stood up and turned his back on the actress, continuing to laugh saying, “Oh my God. I’m done. I’m done.”
Clarkson then said she felt she needed “to take the tape back because I feel like I said, ‘Oh, wait, what?'”
“God, you won for a favorite guest this season,” Clarkson continued. “No, that was amazing. I needed that in my soul.”
The song “WAP” caused some controversy around its explicitness, even sparking a feud on Twitter that led to obvious lawsuit threats between Cardi B and conservative student Candace Owens.
Despite the skepticism received, the song enjoyed widespread success: it debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 after its release in August, was performed by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion at the Grammys earlier this month, and the music video has over 346 million views on YouTube.
Paltrow is just one of many celebrities who have accepted the top rankings.
In November 2020, Clarkson interviewed Lisa Rinna on his show, in which he showed the audience a compilation of the “True Housewives of Beverly Hills” star who dances on TikTok.
“It was for the song ‘WAP.’ It’s the whole thing my friend challenged me to, but then I still look like a fool. It doesn’t matter,” Rinna said.
“Girl, you don’t look like a fool. If I had that body, I’d bang like that,” Clarkson replied.
Dua Lipa, Vanessa Hudgens and Jason Derulo also all participated in the dance challenge “WAP” at TikTok.
Lipa went to the dance studio to complete the challenge on her own, and at the end of her TikTok video she put “Send Help” on the screen.

Hudgens, on the other hand, had a friend to join her in the yard to roll and squeeze on the grass.
And Derulo was not physically involved in the song, but his girlfriend, Jena Frumes, danced in the video, which he later entered and pretended to kick her into the pool.
