Let’s face it, Drake is known for being pretty emotional, but what we didn’t know is that he doesn’t want you to think he’s an emotional person.
“I’m so sick of people saying I’m lonely and emotional and associating me with this longing for a woman. I hate that man…I’m actually not that guy in real life, I’m very happy”, the singer/rapper said during an hour long sit down on the Canadian broadcast “Q with Jian Ghomeshi”.
But later in the interview, Drizzy seemed to almost contradict himself when he claimed he can only write about what he knows to be true in his own life. “I write about my life. I don’t write stories. A lot of classic rap is storytelling, but it’s storytelling about someone else. Fictional stories sometimes. I can’t do that. I have to write about my life.”
So which is it? Is Drake too emo or is he just misunderstood? Check out the rest on the interview below, where he also talks about growing up in Toronto, what he wants to achieve with his music, and what kind of legacy he hopes to leave behind, and let us know what you think.
