Drake has announced via Twitter that he is "done doing interviews for magazines" because the "press is evil."

Why is the press so evil? Because this month's Rolling Stone cover pays homage not to the rapper, but to legendary actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, who died suddenly due to an apparent drug overdose earlier this month.


Drake took to Twitter to complain that the magazine "took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue." He was also upset that the story ran negative comments he reportedly made about Kanye West. Here are his tweets (now deleted) captured via Pitchfork:

Drake may never talk to the press again, but at least he'll get his message across accurately on Twitter before deleting it. And the press will cover that, instead.
