Before I reveal what Drake posted on his blog yesterday (and what he said in an interview with The Source), let me just say this. When I imagine what Drake could be afraid of, the thing that comes to mind is getting shot. I mean, it happened to him before, or rather to the character he played in Degrassi.
But no. He’s not afraid of being shot. Or even of being caught in a brawl with Chris Brown because of Rihanna. Or losing revenue because his album leaked and is available online.
Drake is mostly scared of … Tumblr. That blog tweens use to share memes.
“I’m really scared for my generation, you know. The thing that scares me most is Tumblr,” Drake said. “I hate what Tumblr has become. It reminds me of those clique-y girls in high school that used to make fun of everyone else and define what was cool, but in five years, when you all graduate, that s**t doesn’t matter.”
“No one gives a f**k about that s**t, Instead of kids going out and making their own moments, they’re just taking these images and living vicariously through other people’s moments. It just kills me. Then you’ll meet them and they’re just the biggest turkey in the world. They don’t actually embody any of those things. They just emulate. It’s scary man, simulation life that we’re living. It scares me.”
That’s not the only social network Drake doesn’t like. Apparently Twitter is not his favorite either, based on a bad experience with a fan: “I remember the day my mom was getting surgery and someone came on Twitter and they were like, ‘Yo, Drake, I hope your mom dies.’ It’s so crazy. It’s basically, like, when you used to sit there as a kid, and want to know what everyone is thinking. That’s your superpower. It’s knowing what everyone is thinking.”
Drake’s new album, “Take Care,” will be released next Tuesday. Unless you want to scare him, don’t listen to the leaked version and write something about it on your tumblog.
