Drake was due to appear on the cover of the newest issue of Rolling Stone (the magazine teased its interview with him yesterday), but RS ended up using the cover to pay tribute to the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. Drake isn't happy about that, tweeting that not only were his comments about Yeezus not intended for print, but the following as well:
They also took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue. .... I'm disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil.

Johnny Wore Black's interview can be read here.
My name is Johnny, that's what my dad called me. I like Johnny Cash, a story teller with integrity in his writing and delivery. He wore black to identify with those less fortunate and I remember the black suit I wore at my father's funeral when I was seventeen.

Jack Kennedy and British vocalist Hannah Melbourne of NightBus have debuted their new interactive video for "When The Night Time Comes." It uses some new and "innovative" technology called 3-Way Stereo Technology. Head to Mashable to watch it.
The track, which was recorded in a groundbreaking and unique sonic experience – three infectious singles in one – creates an innovative way to hear a song taking note of the way two friends in today’s pop culture listen to music by sharing one set of earbuds. The left and right tracks are 100% sonically different. When you listen on the left, you hear the song sung by Hannah backed by an electronic dance pop track; on the right, it’s Jack’s...

Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme echoed the comments made by Trent Reznor following the abrupt cutting off of their joint performance at the Grammy's. Homme, during a performance in Houston, said "Fuck Imagine Dragons and fuck the Grammy's," and apparently unironically "Fuck everything, fuck the man." Watch the tirade in the replies and get off his lawn.

Pardoning my first-ever horrible pun headline - Drake talks in the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone about Macklemore's infamous Instagram of an apology he texted to Kendrick Lamar upon winning the Grammy for Best Rap Album last month. More exactly, he calls the move "wack as fuck."
I was like, 'You won. Why are you posting your text message? Just chill. Take your W, and if you feel you didn't deserve it, go get better—make better music... It felt cheap. It didn't feel genuine. Why do that? Why feel guilt? You think those guys would pay homage to you if they won? This is how the world works: He made a brand of music that appealed to more people than me, Hov, Kanye and Kendrick. Whether...
