Yeah, yeah, it’s this old story again. Rihanna and Drake performed together at a Paris concert and got a little cozy with some sexy dancing and all of that and now everyone’s wondering if they’re together. Chances are, the answer to that is a definite NO, but I’d say they’re probably sleeping together again – or were while they were in the same place.
They were also seen together the night before this at the Soixante Dix Neuf nightclub, also in Paris, where they were apparently “getting cozy”. I sorta like them as a couple, but I thought Drake was with Jhené Aiko. Hmm…

I’m disgusted [...] RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil.
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.
It guess this apology is more humble than the first time around? It would have been an even better statement if he took out the bullshit about his comments being “out of context” and jumped right to the I’m sorry part at the end, but with more “I’m sorry”.
What do you think of Drake’s apology?

Philip Seymour Hoffman‘s death was a shocking tragedy for the Hollywood community and because of it, many publications decided to pay honour to the amazing actor after his passing. One of those publications was Rolling Stone, who opted to put PSH on the cover, apparently at the expense of Drake… something the latter was none too pleased about.
He took his feelings to Twitter (of course), where he wrote the following before promptly deleting it when he got major shit for being an asshole:
“I never commented on Yeezus for my interview portion of Rolling Stone. They also took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue.”
“I’m disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil.”
LOL damn, and I actually like Drake. That’s just silly. It’s a magazine cover, man. Even if you are butthurt, you just keep it to yourself and move on. You don’t go on Twitter and whine about it like a cry-baby, but then that’s sorta Drake’s whole vibe with the ~emo~ bullshit.Anyhow, he later replaced his whiny tweets and replaced it with the following:
I'm done doing interviews for magazines. I just want to give my music to the people. That's the only way my message gets across accurately.

Oh dear. Maybe that’s for the best – and delete your Twitter while you’re at it.

Rihanna and Drake allegedly went to a strip club in Houston and you won’t believe how much money they spent. Oh, they made it rain. They made it pour with thunder and lightening and all kinds of shit. They needed to bring umbrella(ellas ellas ellas).
$17,000. That’s what reports are saying. Rihanna and Drake spent $17,000 at a strip club.
Here’s the report from E! News, via Daily News:
The former rumored couple hung out a V Live Gentlemen’s Club in Houston, Texas Wednesday into the wee hours of the night, E! News reported.
After Rihanna, 25, showed up at Drake’s concert at the Toyota Center the “We Found Love “singer and the 26-year-old rapper allegedly got cozy later at the club and together spent more than $17,000.
The “Take Care” pair “sat very close to each other and were even dressed alike,” Jhonni Blaze, an employee who danced for them told E!

Poor Drake. He’s a nice guy who’s in touch with his feelings, and all you jerks want to keep calling him “emotional” and he hates it. It really, seriously bothers him! So what if he sings about trying to break his ex-girlfriend’s new relationship up because he can’t stand her with someone else even though he doesn’t want to be with her. So what if he is constantly reflecting on the “haters” and missed opportunities in his life. That’s just Drake, man! That doesn’t mean he’s an emotional wreck!
From CBC Radio:
“I’m so sick of people saying that I’m like lonely and emotional, and associating me with this like longing for a woman.
“I hate that, it bothers me so much… ’cause I do make music that makes you feel something, but I’m actually not that guy in real life, I’m happy… I’m very excited, my life is constantly exciting it’s not some sad depressing story.”
“As far as the soundscapes go, that’s just the music that I chose to make, I make music strictly for the purpose of driving at nighttime.”
Well, that’s cleared that up. I mean, look – Drake has admitted that he’s emotional before and doesn’t care about it, so why the change of heart. He’s never going to be ‘Started From the Bottom’ guy on every single song because that’s just not him, and that’s why he’s who he is as an artist and why he has the fanbase that he does, etc. Come on, man. Dry those tears.

Drake and Chris Brown hate each other. They’re like oil and water – they do not mix under any circumstances, and it’s all Rihanna’s fault (isn’t it always?). Well, apparently they’ve decided to let bygones be bygones and are now getting all pally at the club or something after Def Jam boss Abou Thiam brought them together. Things got so friendly, that they were apparently “hugging and drinking” together? I mean, I dunno.
From The New York Post:
The musicians — who got into an epic fracas at Soho nightclub W.I.P. in 2012 — hugged it out at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas over the weekend. Sources tell us Drake and his crew came to the music fest on Friday specifically to watch Brown’s performance.
“Drake came on Friday with his whole crew, and watched Chris’ entire set,” we’re told.
After Brown came off stage, a spy told us: “They were backstage hugging and drinking.” We’re told the reunion went so well, the two even talked about creating some tracks together.
Sources tell us the mediator of the reunion was Def Jam music exec Abou Thiam — who’s one of Brown’s managers and a brother of rapper Akon. We’re told Thiam is “very friendly with Drake, and worked to try and get him and Chris together to put their differences aside.”
I guess that would be nice or whatever, if it weren’t for the fact that I would think any decent human being would have “differences” with Chris Brown since he’s a homophobic, misogynistic woman beater. That’s not really a hatchet that can be buried, in my book. Of course, this could be total bullshit – after all, Drake has a verse in one of his songs on the new album (I’m embarrassingly in love with it) about how he’s not concerned when he sees him in the club because he can’t match Drake’s own energy and isn’t who he pretends to be. Doesn’t sound like friendship material to me, but I suppose stranger things have happened.
I just want better for Drake and his sensitive spirit. Stay away from Chris Brown!
