Vanity Fair has been delighting us lately with their series of dramatic readings. First they got a bunch of celebs to recite Kanye tweets. Now, they’ve managed to convince Morgan Freeman to perform a dramatic monologue of Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself.”

Yes, you read that correctly. Morgan Freeman, THE Morgan Freeman, gave his own sensational take on the smash song and he goes straight for the jugular. His deep baritone voice makes the lyrics sound so much more meaningful. The end result is a monologue that definitely comes off like Freeman is reciting all the reasons he doesn’t want to be with us anymore.

“My mama didn’t like you and she likes everyone,” he says, as we flinch at the idea of Freeman’s mom hating us. It’s just too good, and are definitely going to take some time to love ourselves after this.
