Its been almost a week since this happened – but I’m still slightly vexed so i’m going to write this post to get a few things off my chest.
On Thursday 19th April, me and two of my friends went to see DRAKE on his Club Paradise tour in Birmingham. The show was amazing, he’s amazing live – nothing’s going to change that. It was worth queuing in the pouring rain and freezing cold just to be near the front for his set.
The day after, to cut a long story short; we ended up at the Hyatt hotel in Birmingham, where Drake was staying. It also turned out that one of our friends had actually stayed the night there after his show, so we got to go inside no problem. There were loads of Drake fans waiting outside trying to get a glimpse of him. We went in the lift and went on a little tour of the hotel ’cause we were bored. We were walking along the corridor of the top floor when Drake’s bodyguard appeared and started following us, before disappearing into his room/suite..
After a few hours of going back and forth between the hotel restaurant and the front, we finally decided to sit down on the table and chairs in the hotel lobby. At around 5pm, the hotels security told some fans that he’d left, but we’d decided he was lying. So we stayed inside the hotel drinking coffee etc. At around 6PM, Drake randomly came downstairs and sat at the table directly by us. He was by himself, but was eventually joined by his whole team. After a while we decided to walk over to his table, and it went a little like this;
Us: “So sorry to bother you.. But can we please have a photo when you get a chance?” (Bearing in mind that there was just 3 of us).
He then proceeded to ignore us for the rest of the ‘conversation’, when my friend was telling him how amazing his show was he just ignored her even though he clearly heard her. Oh.
Here’s a list of reasons why i’m mad:
1. I love Drake. He’s technically my favourite rapper (along with Kanye and Jigga), so this was a bit of a disappointment to say the least.
2. Fair enough he didn’t have to take a photo, i’m not mad about that! That’s completely fine! Its just the way he was so rude about it.
3. I’m sorry, but when the likes of BEYONCE, RIHANNA, NICKI MINAJ, KATY PERRY, LADY GAGA, JAY-Z and even JUSTIN BIEBER can be polite, no one else really has an excuse. None whatsoever.
Still love Drizzy and his music though <3 (Which is a bit hypocritical). I just like him a little less as a person. Maybe he was just having a bad day? Hmm
