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.

Too many celebrities are hooked on dope. Who cares if they o.d ... its not loke anyone publishes an every day average persons death from cancer or accidents. If theyre dumb enough to o.d then they deserve to be left out of the media. The media ahouldnt glorify death by dope. .. just sayin....

Isn't Rolling Stone a music magazine? Was Phillip Seymore Hoffman on the cover when he was alive? I don't even like Drake, but he deserve the cover more than PSH. PSH was a selfish drug addict who passed away on his own fruition . He has a right to be upset.

I ain't got all day to put you idiots back in your lane. Point blank Rolling Stones, MTV, BET, VH1 all need to get back to what they where founded on an that's music, I don't care if you do an article to remember someone but if they are not a musician they shouldn't be the headline. PSH died cause he like other actors and musicians was stupid point blank, I wish he would of got a hold of some krokodil so he the whole world would have seen what a douchebag he was. An for all those hating on drake made cause you not bout that life go drink some drano an save the world from offspring that might spawn from the sperm banks you frequent

I think Drake was right Rolling Stone did not have the authority to use the interview if they weren't putting him on the cover for whatever reason

Who gives a crap about either one of them. PSH is just a human being as well as Drake. Neither one of them deserve RS cover because they represent what is wrong with our youth and those who think they are role models. Screw em. Oh let's glorify the life if a drug abuser and feel sorry for him making the choices he made. Drake is a no talent ass clown who thinks he's above the rest of us when it's us(the public) that made him who he is. His music sucks in the grand scheme of things. Buch of one hit wonders who won't be remembered for his music but his attitude. STFUP and focus on those who set positive examples

Why anyone reads Rolling Stone or gives them any type of attention after glorifying Jahar Tsarnaev on their cover is beyond me.
