    Welcome To The New Celebrity #IceBucketChallenge

    Kanye meets King Lear. Madonna meets Macbeth.

    First we had the #NoMakeUpSelfie initiative, then we had the #IceBucketChallenge.

    *Just another excuse to show you those again tbh.

    And now celebrities are flooding the web with another challenge. And it's hilarious.

    Welcome to #15SecondShakespeare – which involves people dramatically reciting pop songs as if they were in a Shakespeare play.
