King ego Drake gets a tattoo that shows him 'ahead' of The Beatles

I do feel that progress is being made in these dark days, killer b - this and stuff like the climate strike do give me hope for the future. :)
This front is in some disarray. After 3 hours of well received contemporary pop, the most popular tune at my niece's 21st, the one they all sang along to, was 'Living On A Prayer'.

What a bizarre thread :D very entertaining. Two things; you're all talking about Drake, so, 1:0 to him and his tattoo, Signs makes me want to shag the nearest available person more than any Beatles song has. But really, so what.
Not sure how it counts as a victory when we're talking about what a fucking egotistical arsehole this super famous, super rich pop star is.

A friend who works at a college in Liverpool mentioned that most of the students didn't know who John Lennon was when they organised a day to commerate his graduation from there.
Totally believe that, what with Liverpool having a John Lennon Airport and the city being full of Beatles references, and the Beatles still being hugely famous worldwide.

They have a John Moores university, but I bet most of them have no idea who John Moores was (he was the founder of Littlewoods apparently)

We're still talking about him. Any publicity etc. Obviously it's a fucking silly tattoo but so what?! I bet you the remaining Beatles either couldn't care less or think it's funny.

If a load of people started posted here calling me a twat* I don't think I'd call that a 'win' for me.

*this isn't an invitation, btw :D

I think you'll find there's been no shortage of negative comment on the internet about Drake's tattoo. Perhaps you somehow missed it all.
I did miss it, somehow. You were talking about this thread though, which isn't full of negative comments about Drake (apart from those from you).

Tell you what, start a thread about how Drake ruins Work and all the glory that Rihanna is in that song and I'll call the man a cunt till the cows come home. Fuck the Beatles though.

I didn't know Drake had as many as 35 tattoos - getting a lighthearted doodle to celebrate passing a massive career milestone makes a lot more sense in that context.

Older people, British people and other fans of The Beatles are speaking out en masse to let the rest of Twitter know how they feel about Drake's latest ink ... if the man can get tats of Rihanna eating ice cream, a bottle of his own cologne, a flaming skull, two different sets of prayer hands and a freaking jack-o-lantern, what's an Abbey Road image with himself thrown into the mix?
Drake's new tattoo is making some people really mad

I like a lot of Drake's music but I do find it a bit pathetic that he feels the need to boast about his slightly dubious claim to be bigger than the Beatles with a shit tattoo. But then rich people gloating about their success has never been a thing to celebrate in my world.
