Drake Loses Magazine Cover to Philip Seymour Hoffman — Calls The Press “Evil”
Drake sparked controversy when he called out Macklemore in a new interview with Rolling Stone. Now, just a day after his comments started making the rounds online, the musician is taking on the magazine itself.
But unlike his harsh criticism of his fellow singer, Drake’s not upset RS didn’t send him a text after the Grammys. He’s mad they pulled his cover, replacing his photo with one of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, who was found dead in his apartment on February 2 from what’s believed to be a heroin overdose.
“I never commented on Yeezus for my interview portion of Rolling Stone,” Drake tweeted February 13, referencing a supposed dis he sends Kanye West’s way in the interview.
“They also took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue,” Drake added. That message has since been deleted along with the following tweet: “I’m disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip [sic] Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil.”
Drake did leave one tweet (as of publishing) related to the issue and it sounds to be a warning to the media industry at large: “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.”
What do you make of Drake’s moratorium on magazine interviews? Think it’s for the best or he should leave off the tweeting, too? Hit the comments!
