Drake Walks Out On VIBE, Offers Explanation


Drizzy hates to see it all hurt so bad, but that does not mean he is ready to be told what to do.

Word spread on the blogosphere this week that YMMB heartthrob Drake walked out of an interview with Vibe Magazine that was intended to put him on the publication’s cover. According to Vibe’s Lola Ogunnaike:

“He was slated to appear on the cover of VIBE magazine to accompany this story [The Dark Side of Aubrey Graham]. But he fouled that up when he arrived more than eight hours late to the shoot and refused to wear any of the wardrobe provided for him. He brought his own clothes, which was mostly Hermès and leather bomber jackets. But it was a shoot about spring fashion. He was going on and on about wearing his leather bomber, and wasn’t letting it go. He said the [female] stylist was too aggressive, that he wasn’t a model and he wasn’t feeling the vibe. He hopped in his SUV and left.”

UK publication The Guardian read what Ogunnaike had to say and decided to follow up with Aubrey himself on the situation. Drake offered:

“You do get certain publications in the States where, if things don’t go according to plan, they flip the story and it becomes very negative. They ran this story about how I’m the most bitter guy, and my life is in turmoil. And I’m, like, a very happy 25-year-old kid living an amazing life. They tried to put a damper on my character, I guess because I didn’t play according to their rules.”

Clearly there is more to this story than either party wants to admit, but the people who really lose in the end are the fans. We know you have a good lie Aubrey, you have made that quite clear, but talking about your demons is not so bad either. Take a few deep breaths, wear what they tell you, and do it for the city (Cuz you know the city loves…).
