Emma Stone, Paul McCartney, and Alan Cumming walk into a bar. And…sing Disney classics?
Alert, this is not a setup to a bad joke. It’s real life, and it happened at Cumming’s just-opened New York City bar, Club Cumming. Emma Stone and Paul McCartney sang Disney songs together. Oh, and Billie Jean King, who Stone portrays in Battle of the Sexes, joined them. NBD.
Together, they all sang Part Of Your World from The Little Mermaid.
An onlooker, one of around 30, verified the story.
‘Emma Stone walked in with Paul McCartney and Billie Jean King,’ the witness told Us Weekly.
‘People were really chill about it and didn’t whip out their phones and take pictures but everyone was really [excited] and surprised. [They] asked people not to record it, which everyone obliged.’
Cumming posted about the evening on Instagram.
He wrote: ‘Proving the ‘anything can happen’ mantra, last night at @clubcumming I sang Part of Your World with Emma Stone and Paul McCartney backed us on harmonica. And that’s Jack Aaronson on piano. Also revelling were Billie Jean King and her wife Ilana and Jake Shears! #clubcumming #yesreally.’
After the performance, Stone took time to talk with fans. Meanwhile, Cumming DJ’d and McCartney took to the dance floor.
What is this world?!
Club Cumming officially opened on September 15 in NYC’s East Village neighbourhood. Cumming’s vision is for the club to be a gay-friendly space.
‘Alan wants it to be a home for everyone of all ages, all genders, all sexualities, who all enjoy letting go and making some mischief. No judgments, no attitude, no rules, except kindness, acceptance and fun,’ the actor’s rep said, according to Eater.
See you there next week, Emma & Paul & Billie & Alan!
