drake covers gq magazine

Drake is becoming a regular on the cover of GQ magazine and it brings truth to his catchy song title “started from the bottom now we’re here”, he’s definitely arrived. He spoke to GQ about his on-going feud with Breezy, having lunch with Will Smith and his aspirations for the future, enjoy!

Drake on his feud with Chris Brown: 

“I don’t want my name to be synonymous with that guy’s name. I really don’t. I wish we could sit down, just like you and me are right now, and talk it out man-to-man. But that’s not going to happen. I’m not confrontational, but if someone challenges, I’m not going to back down. …It’s embarrassing, the amount of media coverage. Two rappers fighting over the woman. He’s not even a rapper, but still, it’s the last way you want your name out there. It distracts from the music. But he’s made me the enemy, and that’s the way it’s gonna stay, I guess. …If I think about it too much, I feel it wrapping around my foot, like I get a feeling it could end really badly.”

…on his pursuit of love, and the advice he received from Will Smith: 

“I had lunch the other day with someone I extremely look up to. Okay—I had lunch with Will Smith, and listening to him talk, it made me think I don’t know what love is. He said something profound. He said love is when you become one and you need that person. It’s not about wanting anymore, you need that person. Hearing that, I don’t know if I’ve ever felt that way. I’ve held women in very high regard almost to the point where I felt like I needed them for a very long time, but I don’t know if I comprehend it yet, and I’m okay with that. I’ve made a lot of music about love being the only thing I’m missing. I think this is the first album I’ve made saying, I’m okay. I’m enjoying it right now. Maybe this is my time to grind it out, make a run for it and add some memories with my boys.”

 …on focusing on his album rather than sex: 

“You know the way fighters don’t fuck before the fight? Sometimes I feel like I’m so focused on training my body and getting my mind right to create this album that sex isn’t one of my main priorities. If someone is around that I know and trust, I’m down. But I’m not going to end up with some stranger at this party.”

…on future ambitions, including his goal of making $250 million by the time he’s 29:

“I feel this great responsibility to see how far can we take it, how out of reach can I set that bar for whoever comes after. While I’m here, I’m gonna keep pushing that bar higher and higher up and make you really work for it.

…on becoming #1, and re-creating the excitement of his early career: 

“You constantly ask yourself: Will I ever be able to excite people the way I did when the Internet was going crazy, back when you first felt like you had a piece of Drake that no one else had, and you wanted to share it with your friends? Is there an album or song we can make now that’s good enough to get people that excited again? I ain’t gonna lie: I want to be the one you listen to this summer.”

men in black 3

I watched Men in Black III on Wednesday and seeing as it was a sequel, I had my reservations but because Will Smith was in it, I thought that it cannot be that bad. And I was right, it was quite good actually and Josh Brolin did a great job playing a young Kay, they were literally the same person, it was uncanny. The storyline is basically about a villain called Boris who was imprisoned by Kay (Tommy Lee Jones)  in the 60’s, that villain escapes prison and goes back in time to when he was imprisoned to kill Kay. Will Smith’s character, Jay now also has to go back in time to stop Boris from killing Kay. There is also quite a twist at the end of the story which kind of completes the story of Agent Jay and Agent Kay’s partnership. The movie is also not one of those sequels where you need to have watched the first and second instalments. If like me, you’re a big Will Smith fan, then don’t miss it.

whip my hair no more

Willow Smith has chopped her locks for a bald look, she posted a picture of her new look recently. Jaden Smith also cut his hair recently and debuted his new hair cut at a basketball game which he attended with his parents. I am so happy to see Will & Jada together, Jada has also cut the one side of her hair so maybe this was a family pact for all of them to cut their hair, who knows?! I think Jaden looks so cute as for Willow, she looks so much like Jaden now  and I am sure she looks cute but I still need to see a better view of her.
