Drake Apologizes for Philip Seymour Hoffman Rant

NEW YORK (AP) — Drake is apologizing for lashing out at Rolling Stone for replacing him on the cover with the late Philip Seymour Hoffman.

The 27-year-old wrote Friday on his blog: “I completely support and agree with Rolling Stone” putting the actor on the cover. He calls Hoffman “legendary.”

The rapper adds that he was frustrated and says Thursday was “an emotional day.” He titled the post “Tough Day at the Office.”

Drake tweeted Thursday that he was “disgusted” that Rolling Stone put Hoffman on its cover and he was finished doing magazine interviews. He also said the magazine misquoted him when Kanye West came up, which he didn’t mention in his Friday post.

The magazine’s new issue hit newsstands Friday.
