Girls Trip star Tiffany Haddish is living out her Hollywood dreams in 2017.
The rising star appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to open up about her recent experiences rubbing elbows with the Hollywood elite — including the legendary Barbra Streisand.
On meeting Barbra Streisand, Haddish told Ellen, “We recently met at Ron Meyer’s house, he’s the chairman over at [NBC] Universal or whatever.” (Or whatever?! I love her.) “He invited me over for a movie, right? And then there was Barbra Streisand. She’s like, ‘Tiffany!’ And I’m like, ‘What up, girl!’”
But the fun didn’t stop there. She and Babs got to talking about Cardi B. Streisand wasn’t familiar, so naturally Tiffany seized the opportunity to school her in all things Cardi. Haddish told Streisand how Cardi “just transformed her whole life and how she’s a role model to children, and how we have to be role models to young girls and show you can empower yourself. You can have whatever you want in life.” Then Tiff launched into a cover of “Bodak Yellow,” which Babs found “catchy.”
Haddish’ star-studded stories include a potluck with none other than the Reputation songstress herself, Taylor Swift. The two met while taping an episode of Saturday Night Life. Tiffany requested that Taylor bring barbeque chicken, potato salad and brisket. T-Swift outdid herself by bringing “bomb” cornbread too, says Haddish, who supplied her home-grown collard greens from her backyard in South Central L.A. T-Squared is officially my new favorite celebrity friendship.
