Drake Addresses His Frustration in This Humble Apology!


I published a post yesterday about my booski, Drake (I’m still trying to remain impartial even though he’s my dream guy).  Just like I knew he would, he addressed his angry reaction toward Rolling Stone by issuing an apology to anyone that took his comments personally.  More celebrities should humble themselves enough and admit their wrongs, especially when the circumstances are of such a sensitive nature.  I don’t like negative press per say; I write about MY perspective and just like I can highlight the not-so-pretty, I strongly believe in highlighting the positive side of the coin as well.  Here is what Drake had to say:

With today being the 5th anniversary of So Far Gone I figured it’s fitting to return to it’s place of its origin in order to clear the air about an extremely emotional day. I completely support and agree with Rolling Stone replacing me on the cover with the legendary Phillip Seymour Hoffman. He is one of the most incredible actors of our time and a man that deserves to be immortalized by this publication. My frustration stemmed from the way it was executed.

The circumstances at hand are completely justifiable (on the magazines behalf), but I was not able to salvage my story or my photos and that was devastating. They ran the issue without giving me a choice to be in it or not. I would have waited until it was my time because I understand the magnitude of the cover they chose but I just wasn’t given that option and that made me feel violated. I apologize to anybody who took my initial comments out of context because in no way would I ever want to offend the Hoffman family or see myself as bigger than that moment. I am still the same person.

Today I was forced out of my character and felt the need to react swiftly. These days are the worst ones. Waking up after a great night in the studio and it’s your day to be picked apart. After dwelling on it for a few hours or days you will come to the conclusion that you brought it on yourself almost every time. So here I am having that moment.

I once again apologize to everybody who took my cover comments the wrong way. I respect Rolling Stone for being willing to give a kid from Toronto a shot at the cover. I guess this is a day to learn and grow.

In the latest edition of Rolling Stone magazine, where Rihanna graces the cover, she speaks openly about her rekindled love with singer, Chris Brown.  Sure, everyone talks about it and some even support their decision to find love in a hopeless place (get it?), but dare I ask the question: Would you go back to an abuser?  It may sound harsh or you may not even care, but I’m really curious.  Would you willingly go back to someone who beat you to a pulp?  Furthermore, would you risk your brand, your endorsement deals, you image, etc. all in the name of love?  Does love really conquer all?  Check out what she had to say in her interview: Click Here for Interview
