In an interview with Rolling Stone, Drake made it known exactly what he thought about Macklemore’s public apology for winning the Best Rap Album Grammy over Lamar’s critically-acclaimed “good kid, m.A.A.d. city.” And it wasn’t flattering as the YMCMB entertainer thought “that sh– was wack as f–k.”
*Drake is not happy that he got cheated out of his Rolling Stone cover this month by the sudden death of Philip Seymour Hoffman.
In a tweet this morning, the Canadian rapper suggested he was wrongly quoted in the issue regarding Kanye West’s album, and that editors decided to pull his cover in light of recent events.
*Kanye West, Drake and Bruno Mars have been tapped to headline this year’s Wireless Festival in the UK.
The acts will top the bill at the event, to be held at London’s Finsbury Park for the first time and Birmingham’s Perry Park from July 4 through 6.
They’ll be joined by OutKast, Pharrell Williams and Ellie Goulding, along with Rudimental, Iggy Azalea, Basement Jaxx, John Newman and Azealia Banks.
It was also the debut of Sasheer Zamata. Zamata, 27, is the first black female cast member since Maya Rudolph’s 2007 exit.
As far as we’re concerned, Drake did himself proud. He was self effacing and charming and his acting skills were on point. And we’re already warming up to Miss Zamata. In short, they got the job done.
The Wrap agrees. Here’s more:
*The dating rumor mill has churned out another supposed celebrity couple.
The New York Daily News is quoting a source who claims rapper Drake is dating actress Zoe Kravitz after they were spotted together at Sean “Diddy” Combs’ New Year’s Eve party in Miami.
The daughter of Lenny Kravitz reportedly ended her relationship with actor Penn Badgley last year, and now it appears she has cozied up to the Canadian rap star.
*Beyonce and her husband Jay Z partied with Kelly Rowland, Drake, Robin Thicke, Rick Ross and filmmaker Spike Lee at perhaps the country’s most celeb-packed New Year’s Eve bash thrown by Diddy in Miami Beach.
Blue Ivy’s parents arrived at the venue – the Versace mansion – with Beyonce gripping her husband’s waist as he rode in on a motorcycle.
Drake at one point took over the DJ booth to play some tunes for the A-list crowd, which also included T.I., Pharrell Williams and Jamie Foxx.
