Awkwafina Reveals the Worst Day of Her Life Thus Far

Awkwafina is on the cover of one of THR‘s Next Generation issues!

Here’s what the 29-year-old Crazy Rich Asians star had to share with the mag…

On her publicists texting her that she needed to call them to hear the news that she was hosting SNL: “I was like, ‘Oh my God, what did I do?’ Was it some surveillance video or like a sex tape or something, a horrible sex tape that no one even wants to watch?”

On if she might make more music: “[I would like to but] [I] have to find out who I am now.”

On getting fired from her desk job for her viral rap video: “That was the worst day of my life because it signified my last effort at a life that I knew completely wasn’t me. You can’t put out a video like ‘My Vag’ and then also have a 401(k) — like, it doesn’t work.”
