Just last week a video had surface of Drake “fondling” an underage fan on stage. Now when I saw the headlines, I was taken away because Drake is now 32 years old, so I was thinking this just happen because the news is breaking but the headlines regarding this video can be misleading. So I did my research and watched the video. Well the video was actually taken in 2010 when Drake was a young kid himself basically and he was a rookie in the rap game, at this time he was only twenty- three years old.
Now by no means am I defending him, as i said before I did watch the video and I must say it does look creepy as hell but at the same time it look like it was a part of the show that he used the stunt to lead into his next song. It look like harmless fun that he was just goofing around but yet he still looked nervous to do it. The video starts when him picking the girl from the crowd, he hugs her and gives her massage, nothing harmful yet. he then asks her for age and she proceeds to tell him that she is 17. He then starts to make jokes by saying he needs to stop and doesn’t want to go to jail yet but then says he is 23 so it is okay then proceeds to start his song.
I have to wonder does this video deserve this much attention? Better question is does Drake deserve this much backlash that he is getting so far? But as I ask myself those two questions another one comes to mind and that is why did this video take so long to get released? Ten years this person who filmed this video decides to release it to TMZ. And let’s be honest TMZ doesn’t worry about who or why people give them stuff, they just take it and run with it.
Usually when these situations happen people are usually hurting for money and knows they have something that is worth a lot of money. Now I wonder if the girl from the video is coming forward which she can because she is a full grown adult now and tell her side of the story to see how she felt.
What we do know is he is getting bashed over social media and has yet to put out an statement regarding this situation. This story will be ongoing until he or she says something.
