Anna Kendrick: "Katy Perry Finger-Banged My Cleavage" at the Grammys
She may not have been nominated, but Anna Kendrick was the real winner at the 2014 Grammys on Sunday, Jan. 26. During an appearance on Conan Tuesday, Jan. 28, the 28-year-old Pitch Perfect actress recalled her run-ins with music superstars Katy Perry and Beyonce.
"Katy Perry finger-banged my cleavage," Kendrick told surprised host Conan O'Brien. "It was a weird night . . . She's very mature!"
"I was kind of asking for it," she jokingly added, referring to her sexy, cleavage-baring Azzaro gown. "If nobody had done it I would've been a little sad."
"She just does that?" O'Brien asked of Perry in dismay.
"I have met her before," the "Cups" singer, who attended the Grammys as a presenter, explained. "She's aggressive. I like it."
The Oscar-nominated actress, however, had to be the aggressive one in getting an audience with "Drunk in Love" singer Beyonce at the award show.

"I know everybody is, but I'm totally obsessed with Beyonce. I walked past Beyonce at one point, and because I'm not worthy I didn't look at her," Kendrick joked. "[My friends and I] did make a detour down the front just to walk past Beyonce . . . We thought, 'We'll just walk past her and get some of her aura.' We walked past and my friend was like, 'Dude, she was motioning to you and you just walked past her!' And I panicked. I mean, I didn't know quite what to do, but I thought, 'Once in a lifetime, just do it.' I went back and I was like, 'I'm so sorry to do this, I just wanted to meet you. You're such an inspiration.' And she stood up -- she was so nice -- and she points to Jay Z and was like, 'Oh, we just watched you on the Kennedy Center Honors. You were so great. You were so cute in your little red dress.'"
"She said that I had a little red dress, which means that she actually watched it," the Up In the Air star reasoned. "Or it means that I was having a stroke and I imagined the entire thing."
Disproving that whole stroke theory, Kendrick shared a photo proof of her interaction with Beyonce on Instagram with a pink heart around them. "You put this heart around it," O'Brien said.
"No, that was just there," Kendrick quipped.
