During a recent episode of "Anderson Cooper Live," rapper (formerly Lil') Bow Wow gamely taught Snooki how to freestyle. "Yo, I'm Snooki / I like to play hooky /so give me a cookie," the pint-size "Jersey Shore" star rhymed.

But Snooki's not the first celeb who's attempted to rap. Ellen DeGeneres and Rebel Wilson offered a stirring rendition of the Salt-N-Pepa classic "Shoop" in October. Last year, Gwyneth Paltrow revealed that she knows all the words to N.W.A.'s "Straight Outta Compton." And who could forget "Natalie's Rap," the "SNL" digital short that saw Natalie Portman spitting verses like "When I was in Harvard / I smoked weed every day / I cheated every test and snorted all the yay."
