Natalie Portman defends ‘Star Wars’ prequels and parodies ‘Bodak Yellow’ in expletive-filled ‘Natalie’s 2nd Rap’

The actor made a follow-up to 2006's 'Natalie's Rap' during her 'SNL' guest hosting gig

Natalie Portman defended the Star Wars prequels and parodied Cardi B‘s ‘Bodak Yellow’ in ‘Natalie’s 2nd Rap’, the follow-up to her first comedy rap song from 12 years ago.

Natalie’s Rap‘ was written for the SNL Digital Shorts series when the actor last guest-hosted the US satire show in 2006. It featured Portman angrily rapping about cheating on tests at Harvard, and taking drugs, and included a cameo from then-SNL cast member Andy Samberg.

Portman returned to SNL last night (February 3) for another turn in the guest host position, with her airing ‘Natalie’s 2nd Rap’ as part of her contribution the programme. The sketch saw her parody Drake and Future‘s ‘Jumpman’, as well as ‘Bodak Yellow’, with Brett Becker playing Chris Parnell’s part of the TV interviewer.


“Tide pods the only thing I snack on/Black out and go motherfucking Black Swan,” she rapped in the first verse, with Becker later asking her if she had seen the new Star Wars movies, suggesting they were “much better” than the prequels that she played Queen Amidala in.

“Say something ’bout the motherfucking prequels, bitch,” she responded, dressed as her old character. “Say something fucking nice about Jar Jar Binks.”Watch ‘Natalie’s 2nd Rap’, including another cameo from Samberg, above.

Portman also responded to comparisons between her and Stranger Things actor Millie Bobby Brown by appearing in a spoof of the Netflix hit. She played a punk Eleven in last night’s show, in a skit called ‘Stranger Things 3’, which saw her introduce herself to the other special children with: “I’m Eleven. I can move objects with my mind but it gives me tiny nose bleeds.”
