NEW YORK (AP) — Tiffany Haddish is feeling very recharged these days — thanks to her new car.
The comedian is enjoying her Tesla Model X, a high-end electric vehicle that was a gift from Tyler Perry.
“I can feel the electricity going through my body, feel like I’m getting recharged myself,” Haddish said Monday from the red carpet of Spike Lee’s “Blackkklansman.” ”I think the spirit of Nikola Tesla is going through my feet as I’m driving.”
Last month, Perry, who cast Haddish in his upcoming comedy “Nobody’s Fool,” surprised the comedian with the car. Haddish says her longest ride has lasted “about four hours.”
“It rides smooth. It’s real quiet. It’s perfect for stalking. I’ve got white seats, so I make sure I don’t have nothing on,” Haddish joked.
When Haddish received notice of the gift early last month she shared her disbelief with her Instagram followers.
“So I got this message from my friend and Big Brother @tylerperry a week ago. When I tell you I cried so hard. I almost couldn’t believe it. 1st off a man has never bought me a car out right. I have always had to make payments. This was just out the kindness of his heart And probably tired of me talking about it all the time and I didn’t have to do anything for it but a Great job in our New Movie Nobody’s Fool. Thank God for kind people that want to spread happiness. I am now on my way to see if this is Really! Cause I am still waiting on the one @theellenshow said they would let me use for a week. #sheready #Tesla #Nobody’sFool #thelastblackunicorn”
