Dionne Warwick Asks Chance the Rapper a Pointed Question

News

Dionne Warwick found herself trending on Twitter again Saturday night.

A few days after delighting the internet with a tweet about her refusal to buy a PlayStation 5 for a random guy who asked her for one — “He wanted me to buy him some sort of toy, and I had to answer him and I said, ‘No! I don’t know you,” she later explained in a video interview — Warwick logged on to her account to share some things that have been on her mind lately.

“Hi, @chancetherapper,” she wrote on Twitter on Dec. 5. “If you are very obviously a rapper why did you put it in your stage name? I cannot stop thinking about this.”

“I am now Dionne the Singer,” Warwick announced in her next tweet.

Chance, apparently awestruck by the unexpected mention (and the revelation that “Holy” is one of Warwick’s “favorite songs right now”), took a moment to respond. “Sorry I’m still freaking out that u know who I am,” he wrote back. “This is amazing!”

“I will be whatever you wanna call me Ms Warwick. God bless you,” he said, politely.

“Of course I know you. You’re THE rapper. Let’s rap together. I’ll message you,” suggested Warwick, who wasn’t done having fun on Twitter just yet.

She set her sights on teasing someone else: “The Weeknd is next. Why? It’s not even spelled correctly?”

“If you have “The” in your name i’m coming for you,” Warwick warned. “I need answers today.”
