Drake did drugs before first audition

Jan 17 2014, 5:30pm CST | by

Drake did drugs before his first ever audition.

The 'Started from the Bottom' rapper got his first break appearing as the character Jimmy Brooks on Canadian TV series 'Degrassi: The Next Generation' and says the day he went for the part was also the first time he smoked marijuana.

He told talk show host Jimmy Fallon: "It was the first audition I went on, and it was a real pivotal day of my life because but it was also the day that I got accepted by these real cool Jewish kids at school. They were finally like, 'yeah, come over.' And I had this tug-of-war moment where I did something I shouldn't have done, that starts with 'w' and ends with 'eed.' "

Explaining the effect the drug had on him, he added: "I started really getting paranoid. I thought I'd ruined my whole life, I was splashing water on my face constantly, it was like a [spot removal lotion] Clearasil commercial. I showed up to the audition, and got just a little less paranoid, and did what I could. I was devastated, and couldn't tell my mom, but I ended up getting a call back and getting the role."

The star has previously admitted he likes to drink wine, smoke marijuana and has "sipped codeine" but tries to remain responsible.

He has previously said: "I do it all within moderation. I'm not into drugs."

Drake, 27, also says he would never perform while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, adding: "I don't understand people who can go out on stage under the influence of anything, I have to be straight and clear minded."

Chronixx: 'I'm Not A Perfectionist With Music'

Jul 29 2014 1:02pm CDT | Source: WNYC Music

Summertime bodes well for reggae music. The genre's biggest crossover moves — from Sean Paul to I Wayne — have been made during the balmier months, when Americans relax enough to stretch the geographical limits of our soundtracks. This year's case in point: Chronixx, Jamaica's current it-artist, steadily making strides on international shores. The 21-year-old Rastafarian singer — his sweet, si ...

James Franco Took a Break From Being Creepy Long Enough to Be Funny

Jul 29 2014 10:59am CDT | Source: Fish Wrapper

Ever hear of a little game called "5 Second Summaries"? Because Jimmy Fallon and James Franco play it -- with regard to movies like "The Matrix," "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants," and "Toy Story" -- and it is hilarious how off James Franco is. Honestly, James Franco is just so wrong when it comes to acceptable public behavior, it nearly treads into humorous territory. If he weren't like ...

James Franco Teaches Jimmy Fallon How to Take a Selfie

Jul 29 2014 9:59am CDT | Source: The Hollywood Gossip

If there's one thing James Franco knows, it's ... well... a lot of things. The guy is an actor, an author, a poet, a graduate school student, sort of a sketchball, possibly a Lindsay Lohan sex partner and most definitely a major selfie taker. Sometimes, however, selfies snapped by fans of the actor (especially those who posed alongside Franco during his Broadway run in Of Mice and Men) don't come out well - b ...

Hercules comes out in theaters today, so this is a great moment to run a Dwayne Johnson catchall post. Starting with The Rock killing it on Twitter with photos like this one.
