Drake has finally spoken out about the tweets about him from Amanda Bynes and he’s said that he finds them “a little weird and disturbing.”
The 26 year-old actress is currently on 5150 psychiatric hold after her attempt to set fire to a strangers driveway in Thousand Oaks, California. But before her involuntary incarceration she posted several tweets about Drake on her verified Twitter account.
In some of her posts, she tweeted that the 26 year-old recording artist was, “a hot fellow.” In another more graphic, and lewd, tweet she posted that she wanted him to “to murder my vagina.”
But obviously Drake didn’t respond in a way that pleased Bynes. She went on a Twitter tirade saying that the hip-hop singers eyes looked as though he had Down’s Syndrome and that he was “ugly.” Amanda’s “ugly” tweets are often directed at those who have annoyed or displeased her.
But like her other Twitter rants she’s apologised and retracted her nasty tweets. All without any feedback from the singer himself.
Until now, Drake has never commented on the tweets that Amanda Bynes has been posting his way. But now he’s come out and actually addressed them on the 16th anniversary of XXL magazine and he’s saying that they are weird and disturbing.
Working the promotional trail running up to the September release of his third album, Nothing Was the Same, he said in the interview that, “I don’t even know who is doing that or what that’s about. If that is her, I guess it’s a little weird and disturbing.”
He has also said that the fact that the bizarre tweets came from another celebrity made the whole thing that little bit harder to ignore. He added, “It’s obviously a behavioral pattern that is way bigger than me. Whoever is behind it, whether it’s her or somebody else, they know people are paying attention so they keep it going.”
In the XXL interview Drake, whose real name is Aubrey Drake Graham, revealed that he grew up idolising Kanye West and that he got his start in the business on a Canadian television show titled, Degrassi: The Next Generation.
According to him, it shaped him and put him where he is today. He said, “Do I think that if I didn’t have, for lack of a better term, a unique look about me, if I was from somewhere in America and if I hadn’t been on a kid’s TV show, would I be as famous? I don’t know, man. Honestly, I don’t think so.”
He also says that his start in the business didn’t change him from who he really is. Drake says that he never felt too special or felt the need to change after he became more popular. He said, “I was just some young kid on a TV show. And I haven’t become anything else while I’ve been in this position. It’s not like I got here and was like, ‘Oh, got to switch up my image.'” ”
“I don’t wake up nervous. I feel like maybe a lot of these guys do,” Drake added. “How old are you, really? What is your background, really? What have you really done in the drug game, in the thug game?”
Meanwhile, Amanda Bynes’ parents, Rick and Lynn Bynes, are trying to get conservatorship over their troubled daughter, which may help the All That star cut back on those weird and disturbing tweets that she’s been sending Drake.
