Drake's got a reputation for being all squishy on the inside. Blame it on his lyrics, replete with feelings and stories about calling his exes after a few drinks. (We've all been there.) But, somehow a man in touch with his sensitive side has taken on a hyperbolic image of the perpetually crying guy. Just look at the tumblr devoted entirely to instances of Drizzy looking like a hurt lamb. Finally, the artist asked his mother to explain to his fans why he's so emotional.
"It's not that you cry," she said in an Instagram video. She continues to explain that people say he's always crying because we imagine him to be that way — not because of documented instances of him shedding tears of Rihanna or whatever.
It's not lost on me that this is kind of a juvenile act on Drake's behalf. It's the equivalent of "Mom, the other kids are making fun of me." But, please note I'm not currently accepting any criticism of Aubrey Graham at this time. Ahead, the two Instagram videos you oughta watch in order to fully understand the man behind the tears.
