Those who haven’t been living under a rock throughout this last week must have noticed how Daniel Radcliffe is the star of the moment all over the interwebs.
First, he had an awesome response to a reporter for the Associated Press. This is what happened.
Reporter : You’re really an unconventional romantic lead. Radcliffe : What about me is unconventional, exactly? Like, tell me. Reporter : W ell, I think it’s probably the fact that you know, we associated you with playing Harry, the young boy wizard. Radcliffe : Well, the male population had no problem sexualizing Emma Watson immediately.
That was an epic burn!
And then yesterday, videos of Daniel Radcliffe rapping Blackalicious’ “Alphabet Aerobics” on Jimmy Fallon’s talk show emerged. According to hip-hop fans, it’s one of the toughest rap songs to remember let alone sing. And Radcliffe absolutely nailed it!
This video is a good explanation of why some YouTubers are calling him Daniel Rap-cliffe now.
But this isn’t surprising though. Radcliffe is a self-confessed hip-hop fan and he dabbles in remembering lyrics to complex songs. Here he is on the Graham Norton Show rapping about the elements of the periodic table. Go figure.
