Rolling Stone

Quit Your Bitching, Drake ...

We Warned You About Cover Change

Drake
has no business attacking Rolling Stone or Philip Seymour Hoffman because the magazine gave him advance notice it was dropping him from the cover in favor of PSH.

Sources close to Drake tell TMZ the rapper feels like he was "tricked" because ... "He only did the interview if he was going to be on the cover."

But we've learned Drake was interviewed on January 28, and the photo shoot was also completed before PSH died on Feb. 2.

A rep for RS says this happens all the time when musicians and actors die -- most recently when Lou Reed and Whitney Houston passed away.

Further, sources tell us Drake's camp was told last Friday he wouldn't be on the cover when the mag was released Wednesday. The RS rep would not say if they offered Drake a future cover.

For what it's worth ... Drake has deleted his tweets about the RS cover and Hoffman.

Rollingstone refuses to have anything to do with RUSH, but will put Drake on their cover. What more proof do you need that this magazine is a joke.

This ugly diseased infested rodent is trying to compare himself with Hoffman? Why?

Really why? Like a grain of sand trying to compare itself to the vastness of our universe.

Incomprehensible. Hoffman's talents are beyond what this rodent can even imagine.

Drake has no respect for a famous actor who touched millions with his acting. Drake is a jerk and think of only himself and probably stands in the mirror all day saying I am a famous singer and thinks he is selling millions of albums. If he went into a time machine and went in the days of the greats of Motown they would be laughing at him and saying are for real. lol

So funny how he acts this way now when he actually had a very good upbringing in a rich Toronto suburb and started on a Canadian children's show. This whole persona seems like a put upon act to be "tough." Reminds me of another Canadian trying to be something they're not.
