Drake Writes Apology Letter To Rolling Stone; Yet Another Cash Money Apology
Drake is yet another member of Cash Money apologizing publicly for his freedom of expression. First, Lil Wayne apologizes for the controversial Medgar Evers lyrics, then Nicki Minaj apologizes for the Malcom X cover, and now Drake is apologizing to Rolling Stone magazine for calling them “evil”.
So Drake is upset that Rolling Stone magazine changed the cover he was promised, to feature actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman, who recently died after a heroin overdose. No shade against the actor, Drake attacks Rolling Stone magazine during a twitter rant eventually calling the press evil, and vowing not to do anymore magazine interviews.
And in 3…2….1…Drake walks back the tweet, deletes it, and writes a apology letter to Rolling Stone for his mantrum-twantrum.
Tough Day At The Office:
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.
Well, it takes a big man to apologize, but sounds like a lot of celebrities are apologizing a lot more lately.
