    Morgan Freeman has lent his iconic "Voice of God" to dozens of projects. From documentaries to political campaign ads, the Oscar-winning actor's stoic narrations are highly sought and recognized.

    But with his latest project, one of the greatest voices of all time has social media buzzing.

    Freeman gave a dramatic reading of Justin Bieber's "Love Yourself" for Vanity Fair and the results are as hilarious as you may imagine. The song is the latest single from Bieber's fourth studio album "Purpose."

    "I'm going to give a dramatic reading from a very popular songwriter," the actor says as he rolls his eyes and begins to recite the song.

    "My mama didn’t like you and she likes everyone. And I never like to admit that I was wrong. I've been so caught up in my job, I didn't see what's going on," the 78-year-old reads. "’Cause if you like the way you look that much, oh baby, you should go and love yourself."

    With perfectly timed dramatic pauses and deadpan stares directly into the camera, Freeman delivers a cinematic dictation of the Ed Sheeran-penned lyrics.

    Bieber didn't take offense. The singer retweeted Vanity Fair's post for the video.
