Drake Becomes a Gun-Toting Action Star In 'Please Forgive Me' Short Film
We know Drake for wearing his heart on his sleeve and his emo lyrics in his songs. But, Drizzy is tapping into his gangsta side for his highly anticipated Please Forgive Me short film, released exclusively via Apple Music.
The Young Money rapper teamed up with music video director Anthony Mandler (“Over,” “Find Your Love,” and “Miss Me”) for the new action thriller where Drizzy transforms into a gun-toting killer. The short film, takes tracks from the platinum-selling Views, was shot over the course of a week in Soweto, South Africa.
The clip follows Drizzy and his on-screen girlfriend as they come up with a million-dollar tryst as a part of a plan to take off with the money. Their scheme doesn’t go as planned and a gun battle erupts with Drizzy firing off automatic weapons as he taps into his killer side.
While it was an entertaining mini-movie, it was a bit weird watching Drake shoot and kill people. We’re so used to him being his super emotional self and all.
Peep a clip from the film HERE:

RHoA: NeNe Leakes featured in Smithsonian African-American History & Culture Museum and has words with the Gays!
NeNe Leakes is featured in a display at the new Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture in Washington D.C., which opened this past weekend.
She noted her inclusion on Instagram and Twitter. “Take a tour when your [sic] in the area,” she wrote on Instagram, adding hashtags #culture #history #honored #amazing.
Leakes was included in a display about African-American mannerisms. She was part of the “Gestures of Dismissal,” right above a photo of actress Phylicia Rashad. Indeed, based on her many years on “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Leakes is able to “dismiss” someone who disapproves of her (or she disapproves of) with a very particular look, finger snap or eye roll.
A Twitter user accused her of stealing gestures from the gay community. She didn’t take that well:
But UMMMMMMM NeNe that lingo is Black gay OWNER way before you became a stripper. So you can have several seats MOOSILA ? _/ _/ _/ _/
#EMPIRE: Cookie and Jussie STRIKES back at 50 Cent!
Cast members from Empire aren't staying quiet when it comes to 50 Cent's dig at their show.
Just days after the season three premiere aired, the rapper took to Instagram where he shared a screenshot of Taraji P. Henson and a headline claiming Empire's ratings were down.
"Well look at the bright side at least. You can eat your trophies," 50 Cent wrote on Instagram. "I was talking to old girl but you felt like you had to respond. SMH you know I love you cookie. I got a new show for you BMF COMING SOON !!!#EFFENVODKA."
As it turns out, Taraji saw the message and decided to speak up with her own message.
She later included a screengrab from a recent story that said Empire remains the No. 1 scripted show on broadcast TV.
Ultimately, 50 Cent wasn't done just yet. After reading Taraji's response, he went back to social media where the digs kept coming.
"All this back and forth s--t is starting to turning me on cookie, LMAO I ran into Lee Daniels at the gym on Sunset Blvd. he asked why I didn't except his offer to be on EMPIRE. I told him I have a lot going on, I'm actually working on the show FOX is gonna replace EMPIRE with, he looked at me like…why the f--k are you doing that?" he wrote. "It's because I'm a drug dealer, and I was taught to get in, get your weight up, then take over. So that's the deal #EFFENVODKA #smsaudio #FRIGO."
Reports have also circulated that Empire co-star Jussie Smollett may have joined in on the conversation. A post has surfaced on social media where the actor appears to respond to 50's Cent's original post.

Oh My? Did Naomi Campbell Assault a PR Agent?
Original super-model Naomi Campbell accused of assaulting a PR agent after suspecting him of tipping off the paparazzi to her whereabouts...
From The Daily Mail
The latest incident, which follows Ms Campbell’s previous convictions for assault, is said to have left [an employee] of global PR giant Bell Pottinger with a bruised face.
Ironically, the [agent] had been employed by the company to improve the model’s public image.
Ms Campbell, 46, and her alleged victim worked closely together in London late last year.
But things turned sour when he turned up at her apartment in a five-star New York hotel shortly before Christmas, while the model was recovering from a foot operation. At the time, she needed crutches and a wheelchair to get around.
She suspected the publicist of tipping off the paparazzi about her movements, and the pair are said to have grappled furiously as she wrested the phone away from him as he sent a text. But it is not suggested that her suspicions were justified and accounts of what led up to – and followed – the incident differ markedly.
Sources close to Ms Campbell suggested that the man, who is 20 years the model’s junior, was a ‘fantasist’ who turned up unannounced at the apartment in midtown Manhattan. But friends of the publicist robustly deny this, saying the pair had, in fact, formed a close bond.
Earlier this year, Ms Campbell dropped Bell Pottinger as her publicists and returned to PR guru Alan Edwards, the founder of the Outside Organisation.
After the incident, friends say gossip about the altercation swept through the offices of Bell Pottinger, and the young publicist has not been seen recently.
