Canadian rapper Drake says his brawl with singer Chris Brown in a now-defunct NYC nightclub was one of the lowest points of his career.
In a sit-down interview with GQ magazine, on newsstands now, Drake called the fight “embarrassing.”
“It’s embarrassing, the amount of media coverage,” said Drake. “Two rappers fighting over the woman. He’s not even a rapper, but still, it’s the last way you want your name out there. It distracts from the music. But he’s made me the enemy, and that’s the way it’s gonna stay, I guess.”
Not everyone is sipping from the Beyonce fountain of self-obsession. The Guardian newspaper slammed Beyonce for being a “raging narcissist,” as well as a hypocrite who posed barely nude for a photographer who has been accused of sexual harassment.
In addition to calling singer Beyonce Knowles a ‘raging narcissist,’ the paper shreds Beyonce’s conflicting statements about feminism in the February issue of GQ magazine.
GQ magazine published some of the photos from Beyonce’s cover shoot for the February issue. The stunning photos portray a woman who celebrates her sexuality, even as her husband pushes toward 50. Her toned cheerleader body belies the fact that she was ever pregnant (some still believe she never was).
In the interview, by Andy Wallace, Beyonce says she loves being onstage:
“I love my job, but it’s more than that: I need it,” she says. “Because before I gave birth, it was the only time in my life, all throughout my life, that I was lost.” She means this in a good way: When her brain turns off, it is, frankly, a relief. After drilling herself, repeating every move so many times, locking them in, she can then afford not to think. “It’s like a blackout. When I’m onstage, I don’t know what the crap happens. I am gone… I’m like, ‘Please piss me off before the performance.’ I used to use everything.”
Her daughter, Blue Ivy, with rapper Jay Z, is only mentioned once in the article — by the writer. The reader is reminded often that Beyonce is focused on branding herself. She won’t stop until she has seared her image into everyone else’s reality. Being a mother is what every woman is born to do. No more, no less.

An Instagram user uploaded a photo of the upcoming cover of GQ magazine’s February issue featuring singer Beyonce. The scantily dressed Beyonce teases GQ’s male demographic with a peek at her silicone filled breasts under a cut-off sports jersey. She wears a just barely there zippered bikini bottom. Bey is scheduled to take the stage during the halftime of Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans on Feb. 3. The cover could be fake, so wait for the official word from GQ before you make a rush out to your local magazine stand.
