Sorry, But Chance The Rapper's Job On The Lion King Won't Pass On Your Résumé

Skills: can make antelope sounds.

There’s no doubt that Chance the Rapper is a super talented and inspiring guy, but his role in the recent remake of The Lion King sounds like it was under the ‘Experience’ section of a really dodgy résumé.

Apparently, Chance worked as a ‘nostalgia consultant’ (!!) on the film because he was obsessed with the film as a kid. In an Instagram post, the rapper explained his recent gig: “I grew up my whole life obsessed with all things related to #TheLionKing.”

“So when my big bro Donald got cast as Simba, he did the coolest thing ever and told director Jon Favreau to call me in as a consultant to keep the original flavour.” Absolutely no shade, but we were all obsessed with The Lion King as kids, so this job seems like it could be quite straightforward, no?

However, it’s not the only job Chance had on the film. In an interview with Jimmy Fallon, the rapper said he also did some of the “background noises” for the film, including the sound of “antelopes grazing.”

He expertly demonstrates the noise at 1:52 mark below. It sounds a lot like ASMR of me eating a burrito, and I suddenly I’m feeling very inspired. 

To be very fair, Chance also lent his velvety pipes to the film in various singing parts, which is most definitely something I couldn’t do. 

If anyone is looking for a ‘nostalgia consultant’ on anything from the 90s, I’m all ears.

Robert Pattinson Says He Smells Like A Crayon And I Need To Know Which Colour

Another wild yarn from R-Patz.

Robert Pattinson has gained quite a reputation for spinning wild yarns during interviews, but his most recent comments on his body odour have me truly shaken.

In a recent interview with Allure the star of the upcoming The Batman film said, “Lots of people tell me I smell like a crayon.”

The interviewer – understandably bewildered by this statement – then asked, “Like you’re made of wax?”

To which R-Patz responded, “Yes! Like I’m embalmed.”

I have so many questions. What colour crayon does Pattinson smell like? What brand? Is he using lots of crayons? And most importantly, who are these multiple people who are telling him he smells like crayon!? Is that an insult, or a compliment?

It’s not the first time Robert Pattinson’s scent has come up in conversation. Back in 2009, E! News reported that an unidentified source who worked “very closely” with the actor on New Moon said “he stinks.”

“I mean, it’s awful,” the source said. “He never showers, and it drives people on the set crazy.”

“He completely reeks,” an unidentified crew member added. Yikes.

It’s been over a decade since then, so we can only hope Robert Pattinson has swapped his lack of showering for an obsession with crayons. 

Speaking of celebrity scents, celebrity tattoo artist Lauren Winzer dishes on what Post Malone smells like on It’s Been A Big Day For…below:

During his interview with Allure, Pattinson was also asked about being recently named the “most handsome man” in the world according to science.

“It’s weird,” he said. “I never was really up for the good-looking-guy roles, because I’ve always been quite awkward when meeting people.”

“My Harry Potter role was a good-looking guy, and it was a shock that it was quite easy to get. And then in Twilight, [Edward is] beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. When I turned up for the auditions, I had done a job where I’d dyed my hair black, because I had an inch and a half of roots, and I had waxed my body. And then I had a few months where I’d been drinking beer all day, so I had this hairless, chubby body. I looked like a baby with a wig on.”

Hairless, chubby, waxed or smelling like a crayon – we’ll take Robert Pattinson any which way.
