Adele, Drake and Lionel Richie Have the Most Ridiculous Phone Conversations with Ellen DeGeneres
The host puts her call waiting to the test when these superstars ring
At least that’s how it looks in a must-see spoof on Thursday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Adele might have a throwback flip phone in the music video for "Hello," but DeGeneres tops her with an old-school device that belongs in a 1980s time capsule. The only problem: her reception isn’t that great, and she can’t understand what the singer is saying.
“The connection is bad. Did you say you’re eating beets?” Ellen deadpans – and that’s just the beginning of the ridiculousness.
Before we know it, DeGeneres is getting another call from Drake, who has a familiar complaint you’ll recognize from his new song "Hotline Bling".
Just when DeGeneres thinks this crazy phone session is over, Richie calls with a pertinent question.
