A rapper and a pop star walk into an acting class...
The Guardian tries to figure out why rappers make better actors (via Nestruck).

"Popstars are already play-acting, but their roles are pantomime, manufactured for them. Everybody colludes in the illusion; nobody expects them to be real. For rappers, the opposite is true: they need to tell hard-hitting stories that ring true, they need people to believe that they are 'for real.' The acting starts at the beginning of their career."
