Good news for everyone who cares about the histrionics of adult male celebrities aka the entire Internet! Drake is very mad at Rolling Stone for writing a story in which they quoted him offering a critique of Yeezus and for having the nerve to bump him from the cover in favor of recently deceased, beloved icon of stage and screen, Phillip Seymour Hoffman. So what does a mature, well-adjusted grown up do in such a scenario? Take to Twitter, of course, where Drake announced that he is done—just DONE!—with magazine interviews.
Hey Drake, I’m thinking of starting a podcast, so we cool? In any case, it’s a good thing GQ snagged that 2013 Drake cover story when they did. Call me old fashioned, but I just like the feel of holding a physical account of Drake’s safari room and air-conditioned dog house in my hands, you know?
Naturally, yesterday’s announcement has gotten Drake more press than the original interview would have, and his subsequent apologyhas kept this story alive even longer, setting the foundation for our Canadian philosopher to quit any number of things in the coming months. So, what else is Drake done with? Let’s investigate.
