Drake dropped by PR firm?

Mar 1 2014, 5:28pm CST | by

Drake has parted ways with his his PR team.

The 'Hold On, We're Going Home' hitmaker was allegedly dropped by his representatives at ID-PR, shortly after complaining about being ditched from the cover of Rolling Stone magazine in favor of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman.

A source told Billboard.com that the firm, which handled publicity for his third album 'Nothing Was The Same,' as well as his current Would You Like A Tour? which wraps in London on March 26, initiated the split after the 27-year-old star posted a series of furious tweets, which have since been deleted, about the magazine's decision not to feature him on the cover after the 'Capote' star's tragic death from an apparent heroin overdose last month.

He wrote: "I'm disgusted with that. RIP to Philip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil."

He later added: "I'm done doing interviews for magazines. I just want to give my music to the people. That's the only way my message gets across accurately."

Another source told the New York Post's Page Six that the rapper's comments were "the last straw," as he previously had a lot of drama behind-the-scenes with ID-PR and allegedly hadn't shown up for several other magazine shoots and TV appearances the firm had arranged.

The source said: "It's a shame that someone with so much talent is surrounded by kids who are burning bridges left and right."

The insider also claimed he had issues with Hollywood agency ICM Partners and another of his former firms, The Chamber Group, in the past.

A spokesperson for ID-PR told RadarOnline.com: "Drake is an incredibly talented artist, and we're proud of our results for [his new album] 'Nothing Was the Same' and Would You Like a Tour? We wish him the best."

Julianne Moore says she did ‘Mockingjay’ for her kids, it was ‘fairly meaningful’

Oct 28 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I keep forgetting that Julianne Moore has a part in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, which comes out in November. I guess I forgot because Julianne also has a possible awards-contender with Still Alice, and I’m hoping that Julianne really goes all out for her Oscar campaign. I think the Academy will want to give it to Julianne, don’t you? Anyway, Julianne covers the new issue of More (should have renamed it Moore!) to promote Mockingjay. Some hi ...
