“I’m really scared for my generation, you know. The thing that scares me most is Tumblr. I hate what Tumblr has become. Because it like, it reminds me of those clique-y girls in high school that used to make fun of everyone else and define what was cool, but in five years, when you all graduate, that shit doesn’t matter. No one gives a fuck about that shit. Instead of kids going out and making their own moments, they’re just taking these images and living vicariously through other people’s moments. It just kills me. Then you’ll meet them and they’re just the biggest turkey in the world. They don’t actually embody any of those things. They just emulate. It’s scary man, simulation life that we’re living. It scares me.”

Moments are captured for the 'Social' sites not so much for the memories..
Such a shame that in this moment where ANYTHING is possible kids,teens and adults are more aware of the 'NewsFeed' than Actual live life news ..

its not just tumblr, a lot of the people online are huge exaggerations of their real life personalities.

Lejla said...

I agree to an extent. But Mr. Graham, you also have to realize that these kids need something to relate to. It's sad, but Tumblr is sometimes the only thing that they CAN relate to without being judged themselves and giving someone else a chance into their world to destroy it. Not all of those moments Tumblrd about are things that they haven't gone through. Sometimes it's the only way they have a connection to anything... Which is even scarier. But.. That's the only exception. Otherwise, you're completely right.

I have to agree with this hands down, this is why i dont hang out with big group of girl's while they sitting here talking sh!t im sitting here laughing at them because once you graduate its the adult world to live in hope you know how to live it up without your homegirls

Damnn...Drake you are such an inspiration to every one of us..teenagers. I am a 15 year old girl that loves you very much, I know you since your Degrassi days, I know all your songs, I have all your albums and my biggest dream is meeting you. You are really killing everything Drake. This quote left me kind of mindblown. You speak nothing but the truth and that is another reason for why I listen to your music. Yes, sometimes it is mainstream, but somehow you always find a way to mix a song into something different. I swear that one day when I have kids, I will name my baby girl or baby boy after you. Aubree or Aubrey. That's how much you mean to me Drake..I love you.

BonafideSexyG said...

Good point, Aubrey. The problem with Tumblr is that there are too many posers, too many spammers, too many delays and 24 hour shut downs. It's unhealthy for people of this generation to be so dissatisfied with themselves that they post pictures of other people and claim to be them. It's a cut and paste life. People's hardships are too much so they look for a fantasy escape to solve their problems. Online, you can be whoever you want to be. People that live on the computer might be disconnected from real friends or a real love life. Now with the internet, they have e-friends who they go on e-dates and become e-boyfriends and e-girlfriends in an e-relationships. It's wacko. People can get e-married now.

People are so disconnected in their facebook, twitter, blogger, msn, icq, and tumblr it's as though they prefer online friends rather than deal with real life. People live on those sites. I am guilty of this too!!! :)

All those cliquey mean girls I know from back in high school that set trends, never ended up anywhere. I hated those types. I never fit in with the popular girls. In high school I was a nerd, teacher's pet. After school I played sports. All I did was work. I was extremely shy. I had no boyfriends. My dad had a shotgun and a strict curfew. I wasn't allowed to talk to boys on the phone. I never dated anyone. I had braces and played a flute. I was underweight and the Mexican girls beat me up. The popular girls dumped a tray on me and laughed. I had the worst time in high school. I didn't even go to my own graduation.

Life goes on. You get older, more mature, and you learn what comes around goes around. When people are mean and nasty it usually comes back at them. Treat people the way you would want to be treated. Even later, it never ends. You have college cliques like fraternities and sororities, and facebook bullying and whatever else people do now. It never ends.

People should know, life is not a popularity contest. Tumblr is especially bad because people become dissatisfied when they look in the mirror. It's sad when people in society are no longer comfortable with their own self image. It's okay to be yourself.

Anonymous said...

I agree to a fault. That shit is EVERYWHERE not just tumblr. Look at the buffoons on facebook, updating their status every five minutes just to get ten likes. Come on now. I'm on tumblr, and my tumblr shows reflects the person I am, meet me in real flesh and you wouldn't be surprised.

Deep statement.

Mapi said...

Dear Drake,

I think you got a point there, but it is just one aspect of many ! Of course it is sad, that a lot from our generation, do not make their own experiences and do not live their own social life and just reblog pictures and all that stuff like it is somehow related to their own life.
But I think tumblr is a great site and also a great tool to use. You just have to know how to use it and where the line between real social life and "the internet social life"
is ! I personally use tumblr as a place where I find a lot of inspiration and happiness. I am an architecture student and love tumblr and the people on tumblr for sharing the same things I love and admire.
I don't have the money to visit every great place on earth that I want to see or make every experience that I want to make, but thanks to tumblr I can make this experience indirectly. So it is possible for me to live a dream through pictures, music and quotes. And I am very thankful for that.
I´m not 24/7 on tumblr, just sometimes when I have time and update my blog , it is like my personal college block, where I collect all the stuff I like and want to remember, when I am older.
It is somehow comparable to you music. You tell us about your stories and moments and share it with us and we all appreciate it and make it somehow our own story because we all can relate to it in a very personal way ! So I think its the same with tumblr.

Everything has its good and of course bad parts, but it depends on how people want to use it. The Internet is a very impersonal place and we all want a place where we feel safe and home. Tumblr can give us some kind of this feeling.
Some people will always exaggerate and be a bad example, but in general it is a good thing, I think.

But I can only speak for myself and I really understand what you mean and I think you are right, but there is always another point of view, which we must not leave unmentioned :)

I agree with you 100%. Wrote about it for my Sociology Class the other day. Social media in general, but especially Tumblr, is taking away the originality of our generation, and Tumblrs rarely represent the person running them. If all we do is reblog, what type of substance are we really creating ourselves?

Agreed ... Not to mention that social media sites have ruined natural forms of communication.That being said it is a way to reach out to people you prob would have never met before.This was not possible 15 years ago.I think it is a social thing but at the same time makes people anti social because they never have to leave their house to socialize. If that makes sense. This can not be very healthy. Moderation is key.

I feel ya man. People need to start making their own lives and doing shit for themselves and stop proving themselves to everyone else. Just like you man. For how young you are you're seriously one of the wisest and most truthful figures out there. You're not scared of what people think or how you fit in because at the end of the day, if you're not happy then what you're doing ain't worth shit. And for this I look up to you. I know that a lot of people say you're changing and everything as you've expressed in your songs but you need to please yourself and yourself alone.

Take care,

It's up to us as elders to teach them what it means to be real...if not, this generation is doomed to a life of hiding...we can only pray that we teach them right...

Anonymous said...

Those clique-y girls rarely go on to do much with their lives. Why? Because they never grow up and they take those same behaviors with them into the work place. Bullies and gossips rarely prosper. Neither do haters. Promotions are seldom handed out to these "mean girl" types.

Tangetically, there is a hater on NY radio that I'm sure Drake and others on here who are either from NY or listen to NY radio are aware of. I'm glad that Drake has never mentioned this person or any of his haters by name. Doing that only gives them power and a sense of importance. Haters should remain the nameless, faceless beings that they are.

Personally I think people should just ignore haters. Sometimes it's hard to do but after a while people will stop listening to them and they'll eventually tire. Even if they don't, you're still living your life and they are still making their life about you so you win.

When you catch yourself actually paying a hater any mind just remember this: A hater has never given anyone a thing. They can't. No one can. So who cares what they think?

This is the truth, but for some people, I believe so... Just like the world, where there are about 7 billion people now, things are different. Some people pose, some people relate, some people start their own group to define something, some people basically log onto it for some humor. I have a tumblr account too. I use it like a virtual diary, I post things I like, places I want to go to, things I achieved, what I was feeling at that moment, just for the sake to remember them when times gets lost in the present or the future life. Right now I'm giving an opinion on a superstar's quote who or whose people would just post it over here and leave it hanging and wouldn't probably check out the comments. But I love the superstar though, and why do I love him? Because he is an artist, and the art he makes relates to me, all the stuff he has gone through, I like it, but I did not go through it. And probably a lot of the other fans have not either. It's just the act of the human brain. Whatever attracts it, it will start following it. Just like this blog. I would daily come here and check it out. For my tumblr account, I honestly did not ask for followers. I just wanted a URL of things I mentioned earlier in this comment. It's my request that we look at all aspects of things and not make our opinion or believe official, because it influences people, maybe some of them are going on the right path with it, so just leave it as it is.

Aidan57 said...

I agree with you completely. I'm never using Tumblr, it's so dumb.

SK said...

But isn't that just like the rest of popular culture? I mean, when you see all these kids reading and watching movies and t.v. shows, you can make the exact same argument that they are escaping their own worlds and emulating those of unreal characters. I use tumblr as an expressive journal, where I write my own thoughts, and ideas, and post inspirational things so that my creativity never dies. I often post pictures of beautiful places to escape from my own crappy location, but don't forget that not everyone has the time, money, and freedom to actually go out and make things like travelling the world a possibility. Tumblr is not all that bad, there are now millions of users on it who use their tumblogs to express themselves in their own different ways, so you are just generalizing all of the millions of tumblr users...

lmd82 said...

I don't know how many times I thought this to myself when I'm browsing on tumblr, but that's my fault for following certain people. I agree with you about the searing irony when people use something that other people created to express their own originality. Apparently, nonconformity is so now.

However, I'd like to view tumblr as a venue where people share all sorts of content with each other, not using them as declarations of "look how deep I am". I mean, nobody on tumblr knows me personally, so I wouldn't get much pleasure proving my coolness to strangers, lol. I still agree, though, moments are to be lived, not observed.

Keep up the success :)

Drake has paved the way for a new generation of music and like he says "real is on the rise, fuck them other guys" I look forward to hear what comes out next.

Tumblr and Twitter aren't all that bad, it gives our generation a voice , to understand others thoughts,to be open to the thoughts shared by others, and encourages us to create our own ideas. People will always look up to others, you just have to be a good role model and don't let anyone else define you. I have a son and realize in order to become his own person he has to emulate me, maybe in order for this generation to find themselves they need to emulate someone they look up to. Who are we to say that they are "fake", who are we to say they are "copy cats" We are family that must keep encouraging growth.

Dez said...

I use Tumblr and I absolutely agree-- and can I just say I'm just there for the Gerard Butler pics (don't judge me, you do some shit like that too). THIS IS SPARTA MOTHERFUCKER!

Without spending paragraphs regurgitating what you and everyone else has said-- I have been socially anxious all of my life. When I was younger, I used to be very shy around people, but on the internet, I was my true self, emotions and all. Hindsight is 20/20, and I can say those were the worst years of my life. The people I bonded with about how much life sucks-- they weren't my friends. they were simply enablers and nothing more. We thrived on ruminating in our own shit, and living lives of characters on TV. Life passed me by and those are years I will never get back. Now, I'm different. I live the life I want to live, not vicariously through others. No, it's not all exciting (I mean, I'm in grad school lol) but it's rewarding and more fulfilling than it has ever been. As a counselor, I tell all of my socially anxious clients to limit their internet use because of what I went through.

I think people just have to be mindful of how they choose to use these sites. It's not tumblr [or even twitter] per se, but the PEOPLE that use the platform, choosing to create false identities. I personally love tumblr but I'm not venomous nor salacious with my expression of words either.

I definitely dig where Drake's coming from though. Social media has limited personal interaction but by OUR choice. Indulge lightly!

Despite tumblr the ones who truly believe in you and your work will still be waiting for Nov 15 to buy, support and listen to your hard work. Therefore any opinion will be our own, and no one can mold us besides ourselves and god!!!

Some are just as worried as you are, but in order to cause some sort of flux in the way our generation is headed, there needs to be contact in some way or another. If that means people following your tumblr, blog, Facebook, twitter, whatever, at least there are some leaders out there that want to share their thoughts. I mean, to be honest, we can't get anywhere without understanding that there must be a massive change in the way we live our lives and I have found that there are those who stick out from the crowd. Those who are born leaders, that aspire to inspire.
I hope you can pick those people out and understand that they are worthy of praise rather than hate. Because I take your lyrics very seriously, and it hurts to hear you classify women as wanting something from you. Sometimes, people just need inspiration, whether it be through someone else's tumblr, or your lyrics, or taking a breath and finding a daisy to make a daisy chain...
I am trying to stay away from condemning those who just want to find somewhere that they feel alright.

P.S LOVIN the Crew! you guys make incredible music, honestly, so refreshing to turn on my computer and find new songs out. You are evoking a spirit of revolution, that we can shape our worlds in whichever way we would like. So, I want to truly thank you for that. Please keep making music and bringing beautiful people into your life. I have never met you, but through the lyrics you write, the people you choose to associate with and the way in which you got to the incredible spot you are now, lead me to believe you are a very complex and thoughtful human being. Never lose that.

Dear Drake,
My name is Gina and I'm a hugeee fan. My dream is to perform one of your songs with you. I would also love to meet you or spend like a day with you just to see how hard it is on you with the pressure and stuff from everyone around you. Also if you can I'd love of you could hear my brother and cousin rap they are both really good and would love it if you just heard one of their songs but anyway pleaaaaaasaassssssee help mine, my brother, and my cousin's dreams come true. I know you probably get stuff like this all the time but pleasse don't just read this and not do anything pleasse we love you and would do anything for you to do this for us.
Thank you and Love always,
Gina E. <3

I love this post and will be featuring it on my blog site www.shelinaisplatinum.com I had some ppl tell me I should change to tumblr... it was the new "wave" and that is exactly what I saw a bunch of followers all these new "bloggers" we not posting original content. There is nothing with posting news from other sites here and there but where is the original content?

really its not just tumblr but kids life in general..nobody is teachin our generation to be leaders nobody is exposing us to the different varieties of music or art or even history. everyone of out generation is stuck in this closed minded way so the easiest way is to follow somebody else...they travel in packs

Chyna Monroe said...

My comment has nothing to do with tumblr but I just need to let the world or Drake (if he reads this) I'm absolutely in love with your music and of course you! Lol my friends think I'm obsessed but I say I'm your number 1 fan (Handsdown). Your music does soo much for me, I'm only 21 but your music and words makes me want to experience love , heartbreak and all the things you sing and rap about. I would love to meet you one day and its on my list of things to do before i leave this earth for sure. I'm listening to you Take Care album right now and I love every single song, Love Chyna (p.s you guys can call me a groupie but I don't give a damn, it is what it is)

Love you Drake though! Bought the album<$

btown said...

Wow, THAT is REAL. Well spoken truth. To the anonymous poster, another INFJ here...the music does hit home it's amazing ;) And to the other anonymous poster, your not the only one on earth without a Facebook or Twitter...this guy told me he wanted to follow me on Twitter once, and after I told him I'm not on Twitter he said, "well what's your Facebook?" and I said "I'm not on Facebook either...a different breed". He said "you probably don't even have a DVD player do you?" LOL

Drake is speaking the truth. he's my favorite rapper -OVO

When you actually come encounter with someone that has a Tumblr, you'll never regret it. We're not those clique-y girls in high school.

In some cases this statement is true but it shouldn't be generalized.

A little late... but had to comment on this one....
All of the comments relating to "Drakes" frustration with tumblur and social media websites is hilarious to me. Half of the people commenting are most likely on tumblur!
The other half most likely JUST found out who he was this year. Those are probably the ones who are calling him by his first name and acting as if they know him on a personal level. Ha!
And they are probably the ones who just discovered this website a few months ago (when its been up over a year).
In addition, they most likely follow him on facebook. Ha!
I think that is the funniest part about this post.
You feel "DRAKE"?... nah! I think its just a facade!

Great words Drake. How do I repost this quote to Tumblr?

*taps cane* Well back in my day, we use to go to malls and use landlines... blah blah blah. You've just outdated yourself drake. Come on, the kids are alright.

What kills me is when a celebrity posts a photo or comment and fans comment back; but the celebrity never comments back. I understand that they may not be able to answer or comment back on everyone's questions but be true to your fans. Thank God I'm not a fan or groupie. I just enjoy music for what it is. Engaging in conversations with fans can benefit both celebrity and fan. Just my very own thoughts on celebs.
