Drake explains the situation with VIBE Magazine.
Lola Ogunnaike initially spoke about the incident, saying:
"He was slated to appear on the cover of VIBE magazine to accompany this story [The Dark Side of Aubrey Graham]. But he fouled that up when he arrived more than eight hours late to the shoot and refused to wear any of the wardrobe provided for him. He brought his own clothes, which was mostly Hermès and leather bomber jackets. But it was a shoot about spring fashion. He was going on and on about wearing his leather bomber, and wasn’t letting it go. He said the [female] stylist was too aggressive, that he wasn’t a model and he wasn’t feeling the vibe. He hopped in his SUV and left."
Drake spoke about the situation in an interview with the Guardian, saying,
"You do get certain publications in the States where, if things don’t go according to plan, they flip the story and it becomes very negative. They ran this story about how I’m the most bitter guy, and my life is in turmoil. And I’m, like, a very happy 25-year-old kid living an amazing life. They tried to put a damper on my character, I guess because I didn’t play according to their rules."
