Drake says he's a happy guy...
Speaking to CBC Radio, Drake revealed that his life is not the "sad depressing story" many fans believe it is. Below are some highlights from the interview:
Drake on being sick of people believing he is sad and lonely: "I'm so sick of people saying that I'm like lonely and emotional, and associating me with this like longing for a woman. I hate that, it bothers me so much...'cause I do make music that makes you feel something, but I'm actually not that guy in real life, I'm happy... I'm very excited, my life is constantly exciting; it's not some sad depressing story...As far as the soundscapes go, that's just the music that I chose to make, I make music strictly for the purpose of driving at nighttime."
Drake on how he doesn't have an attention-seeking personality: "What really bothers me the most is the fact that sometimes I don't feel like I get enough credit or I don't make a big enough impact because I'm not a loose cannon in situations like this where we're doing a one-on-one interview. People just want me to go off more and lose my composure, and then that way I guess I would make more headlines or be more iconic. But that's not me. I'm a naturally poised individual."
