'Huawei': A foreshadowing name?

Gwyneth Paltrow fans may have forgotten that the actress-turned-lifestyle-expert could also sing, as she did in her hit 2011 film Country Strong. But her recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon served as a clear - as well as hilarious - reminder of this fact. On Feb. 4, when Paltrow was a guest on Fallon's show, the two grabbed some microphones and crooned some slow, soulful, and gloriously awkward renditions of romantic text conversations gone hilariously awry. The scenarios from the segment - entitled "First Textual Experience" - ranged from an auto-correct fail to a Valentine's Day shutdown. As we previously reported, Paltrow also lent her vocals to "Everglow," a track that appeared on her ex-husband Chris Marten's 2015 Coldplay album, A Head Full of Dreams. Though the pair divorced back in April 2015, Paltrow has said that the co-parents remain "great friends." Check out the video below to see Paltrow and Fallon in action.
