Drake has been the talk of the ‘net for the last week or so after dropping a few new songs and one of the biggest rap concerts in recent memory. Before that, he was being e-accosted by psycho Amanda Bynes. If you recall, she tweeted that she wanted him to murder her vagina, which is as romantic as it sounds.
We’ve waited months and now — thanks to an interview with XXL — we know exactly how Drake feels about the whole situation. Hint: he’s not pumped about it.
On Amanda Bynes:
I don’t even know who that is doing that or what that’s about. If that is her, I guess it’s a little weird and disturbing. It’s obviously a behavioral pattern that is way bigger than me. Whoever is behind it, whether it’s her or somebody else, they know people are paying attention so they keep it going.
And here are some more quotes from that interview:
ON HIS SUCCESS
I get Jewish people coming up to me proud like, “Mazel Tov, bro. Come to my house for Shabbat dinner.”
ON HIS IMAGE
Do I think that if I didn’t have, for lack of a better term, a unique look about me, if I was from somewhere in America and if I hadn’t been on a kids TV show [Degrassi: The Next Generation], would I be as famous? I don’t know, man. Honestly, I don’t think so. I was just some young kid on a TV show. And I haven’t become anything else while I’ve been in this position. It’s not like I got here and was like, “Oh, got to switch up my image.” I don’t wake up nervous. I feel like maybe a lot of these guys do. How old are you, really? What is your background, really? What have you really done in the drug game, in the thug game?
ON THE COMPETITION
It’s tough for me. That’s a guy I can’t pretend not to like. He’s the guy to me, in a lot of ways. That’s Kanye West. But I’m also here to be the best. I’m here to surpass. I’m here to outdo. I’m ready for whatever with anybody.
Drake, ever the philosopher. His album drops in September and it’ll actually be pretty dope. Seriously.
