Watching Novelist Salman Rushdie Read Drake Lyrics Is Strange And Funny


Six degrees of separation can work for pretty much anyone these days.

That being said, you might have a bit of a hard time trying to link renowned novelist Salman Rushdie with Drake – but no longer.

That’s thanks to Rushdie reading out some of Drakes’s lyrics for the camera.


Rushdie isn’t the first to read out a famous music artist’s lyrics in a deadpan and amusing manner – Ian McKellen did it with Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ and that was pretty impressive.

Not to be outdone, Rushdie tries his best here, and seems to really get into the part about having ‘haters’.

In fact, it’s probably one of the best things you’ll watch while dying of a hangover this Sunday.
