    Drake angers Beatles fans with 'egotistical' Abbey Road tattoo to mark his latest chart record

    Beatles fans are furious with Canadian hitmaker Drake after the rapper got himself a new tattoo, seemingly mocking the Fab Four’s iconic Abbey Road album cover.

    The rapper’s chart success has led to him breaking a number of Beatles records on the Billboard Hot 100, including for top 10 singles.

    Drake now sits in second place for all-time top 10 singles, with 35, behind the 38 singles Madonna has had reach that level.

    To commemorate his latest success, the Hotline Bling singer got a tattoo of the four figures walking across the Abbey Road zebra crossing, with the addition of a fifth character - presumably Drake himself - waving back at them.

    Pretty funny. Congrats to the guy on his incredible achievements. Some people are just way too sensitive.

    When Drake turns 80, it’ll be a “Flabby Road” tattoo.

    No Beatles fan is furious. It's not like he's claiming to be bigger than Christ.

    Yes, but will his "music" still be listened to by millions 50 years from now? I doubt it. His tattoo may outlive his chart-topping days.

    What a pathetic scene, all the way around ...

    I think I saw Drake once on SNL. "Rapper Of The Month", or something? ...

    That’s not the Beatles. It’s a tattoo of a Nick Drake photo! :winkgrin:

    Stupid tattoo and stupid reaction but wow, did he really sell all those records or is this some sort of streaming count or whatever?

    I'm a Beatles fan, and this tattoo strikes me as cheeky, and the Beatles did not tend to turn up their noses at cheekiness, so whatever.

    The new journalism is so interesting. Any celebrity does anything at all and there's always at least a half dozen tweets one can garner to create a story on the "reaction." And thus the myth is created of "Beatle fan ANGER" at Drake for his "egotistical" tattoo.
  23. Hope the tattoo lasts longer than his career.

    So Drake tattoed Homo Sapiens showing the finger and now "Yahoo Finance" is telling me I'm furious.

    C'mon, I have weirder things to get mad at.
