Drake is cleaning up the mess he made yesterday when he told Twitter how mad he was when Rolling Stone replaced him with Philip Seymour Hoffman on this week’s cover. He’s since deleted the offending tweets and even issued an apology on his website.
“I completely support and agree with Rolling Stone replacing me on the cover with the legendary Philip Seymour Hoffman,” Drake wrote. “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.”
Turns out Drizzy was just really excited to get his own cover, and he was hoping his story would be postponed for a later issue. “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,” he said. But in the end, the rapper respects Rolling Stone “for being willing to give a kid from Toronto a shot at the cover.” So Drake is still same humble, polite Canadian he’s always been. (I actually have no idea if he has ever been humble).
It’s a nice apology and all — but what I really care about is whether he was serious when he swore off magazine interviews Thursday. Because if this is what happens when Drake gets a magazine story, keep ’em coming.
