Drake has been all over the Internet today thanks to Take Care springing a leak overnight, but he has a few choice words for you Tweeters and Tumblrs out there.
Here’s an outtake from his cover story with The Source that went up online today:
“I’m really scared for my generation, you know. The thing that scares me most is Tumblr. I hate what Tumblr has become. Because it like, 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 sh*t doesn’t matter. No one gives a f*ck about that sh*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.”
As far as Twitter, Drake remembers the day checking his mentions didn’t bring him the usual accolades:
“I’ll tell you, my biggest thing was, I remember, it was on twitter. 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.’ You don’t really mean that.”
…Like, you know you’re going to see something bad. Out of 1000 compliments, 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. [Twitter is] knowing what everyone is thinking.”
Damn, tell em how you really feel, Drizzy? If he hates Twitter and Tumblr, then he’ll hate the tweets that started piling in right after people started listening to Take Care and the #TakeCareComesWith trending topic started taking off.Almost everyone began making fun of the album for how it was softer than wet Charmin with all those harmonies and emotions. The results were hilarious. Take a look.
