It’s not a Battle of the Bands scenario, but it is a battle. Apparently, actor of 1990’s fame, Ashton Kutcher had a beef with Harry Styles, the modern Elton John. Yes, sometimes actors and singers butt heads. Sometimes blood spills. At other times, teeth get pulled, or someone gets knocked out. Not sure if any of the former will occur in this situation but one never knows.
As per Esquire, wondering what Ashton Kutcher has been up to lately? He hasn’t been acting on TV or in movies. In Esquire’s newest episode of “Explain This”—which debuted on the occasion of our first-ever digital cover story, which features Kutcher—the actor says he has go-to karaoke story, which features a cameo by none other than Harry Styles. But Kutcher didn’t know that.
“There’s an extraordinarily well known singer, that is maybe the best singer today, that we happen to be neighbors with, and she happens to be throwing a karaoke party,” Kutcher says in the video. And she gets up and does this like out of the world bananas [performance], and I’m like this is just so unfair.” Ashton never names the first singer, so conjure up your best guess before you get to the kicker here. We’ll let you read the rest of the story in full:
And then this other kid gets up, and he does this ABBA song… I’m like, oh my god. It’s bananas. So this kid gets off stage, and Mila [Kunis] and I go up to him. We’re like, ‘Man, I got to tell you something, you’re a ringer. You’re like a karaoke ringer. You’re really good.’ He goes, ‘Thanks, man, thank you. I really appreciate that.’ So we go to our friend and we go, ‘God, that guy was really good, huh?’ And he’s like, ‘It’s Harry Styles.’ And I was like, ‘Who’s that?’ Mila’s like, ‘It’s the guy in the boy band. He’s a professional singer.’ Oh my god, now I feel like a jerk. He’s a professional singer. And we’re trying to tell him he’s a good singer. And I like feel so dumb. So I just really want to say, I’m sorry Harry Styles, but you’re really good at karaoke, man. Seriously, like really good.
