James Earl Jones’ Interpretation of Justin Bieber’s “Baby”

On The Gayle King Show, actor James Earl Jones gave an unintentionally dramatic reading of the lyrics to Justin Bieber’s hit song “Baby”, which is like the literary equivalent of a Nilla wafer. Jones has a Morgan Freeman-esque voice. It’s deep, powerful and perfect for the narration of a bird migration special on Animal Planet. Watching him utter the laments of a 16-year-old boy feels unnatural and yet so right at the same time. TC mark
