Drake Apologizes to Rolling Stone

Sam Elliott once eloquently said that sometimes you eat the bear, and well, sometimes the bear eats you. The latter happened to Drake yesterday, and now he’s apologizing for the comments that brought the bear on.

In a series of tweets, Drake ranted about magazines in general and Rolling Stone’s decision to put Philip Seymour Hoffman on the cover instead of him. It was a little ridiculous, but no big deal. Still, some called him out for being so upset. Now, in a post on his website, Drake has issued an apology. Drake wrote that his frustration was due to “the way it [the decision on the cover] was executed.”

“They ran the issue without giving me a choice to be in it or not,” explained the 27-year-old rapper. “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.”

Drake also signed his statement “The Boy,” which is a very Drake thing to do. You can see Drake’s full note below.

Drake is Mad at Rolling Stone [Updated]

Drake — the emotional, sweater rocking rapper who really just talks — is mad at Rolling Stone. In an interview with the magazine, Drake apparently dissed Kanye West’s Yeezus by saying “There were some real questionable bars on there. Like that ‘Swaghili’ line? Come on, man. Fabolous wouldn’t say some shit like that.” While FishbowlNY completely agrees — Yeezus was garbage — Drake is now claiming that he didn’t say that. He’s also mad that Rolling Stone ditched him for a cover featuring Phillip Seymour Hoffman:

Poor Drake. It must be difficult being so intimidated by West that you can’t rightfully criticize his work.

The Canadian born MC wasn’t done after this tweet. He really wanted everyone to know how annoyed he was about losing that cover:
