Drake was none-too-happy when Rolling Stone bumped him off their cover for Philip Seymour Hoffman this week — but after blasting the magazine on Twitter, Drake deleted the offending tweets and apologized for his behavior on his website Friday:
I completely support and agree with Rolling Stone replacing me on the cover with the legendary Phillip Seymour Hoffman. He is one of the most incredible actors of our time and a man that deserves to be immortalized by this publication. My frustration stemmed from the way it was executed…They ran the issue without giving me a choice to be in it or not…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.
Apparently, Drizzy was hoping that his story would be pushed to a later date and that he would still get his own cover, but alas — that’s just not how it works.
But the rapper still hasn’t said anything about his reaction to the actual content of the story. In the profile, Drake is quoted criticizing Kanye West’s lyrics: “There were some real questionable bars on there,” he says. “Like that ‘Swaghili’ line? Come on, man. Even Fabolous wouldn’t say some shit like that.” When parts of his interview were leaked, Drake tweeted, “I never commented on Yeezus for my interview portion of Rolling Stone.”
Drake also swore off interviews with magazines Thursday. No word yet on whether he’ll have to apologize for that, too.
