Drake knows that many hip hop fans like to poke fun at his 'sensitive guy image,' and he doesn't care. At least that's what he told MTV. After recently admitting that his ex-fling Rihanna hurt his feelings by breaking up with him, the blogosphere and Twitter had a field day clowning him.
"If I worried about how I’m gonna look saying this, then I wouldn’t make half the music I make," Drake says. "People nitpick at me for being emotional or tapping into my emotions, but like, man, we all die one day; that’s just how I want to be remembered."
"The running commentary or the jokes don’t really affect me, cause that’s what I’m going for," he continued. "I don’t want to be a guy that blends in with all the other generic rap music. I want to be the guy that stood out and pinpointed life emotions for women, men, young people, old people or whatever it is. So I don’t trip, that’s what I want. I welcome it."
