I’ve seen some really stupid comments about the Drake and Aaliyah picture I made and I actually can’t believe some of the things I’ve read. Some of you are being really disrespectful and ignorant. If you know how much Drake loves Aaliyah you’ll understand why I did this. I didn’t do it for you, it’s my imagination and creativity so please have some respect for others when you’re speaking about loved ones that aren’t here with us anymore. Tumblr is full of naked women, sex and materialistic people so I can’t understand how some people can be so rude when something that’s actually meaningful is posted, although the majority of the comments have been really emotional and positive so thank you for the feedback, it’s always appreciated.
If you’ve read Drakes letter to Aaliyah you’ll understand why these photos make sense and why I decided to do it.
Drake’s letter to Aaliyah.
I’ve never lost a parent, a friend, or a lover but I will never forget this day for the rest of my life. I remember getting the news that you had passed and it connected with my heart like a clean shot from Muhammad Ali. I was crushed. Not only was I one of your biggest fans but I was truly in love with you. I loved the way you carried yourself, the way you dressed, the confidence with which you addressed passion and relationships in your music. I said to myself that even if we never met, I wanted a woman in my life just like you. I am pained that we will never get to connect now that music ended up being my career path. But you should know, we all listen to you everyday and we remain inspired and moved by all that you’ve given the world. I hope I make the right life choices so I can end up in heaven where I know you rest your head. I’ll continue to make music in your honor until the day we finally meet. Dinner’s on me!
Love you always and forever,
