Ever since he performed at the BET Awards with Lil Wayne & Young Money, Drake (along with BET) has been getting a lot of negative feedback. Performing "Every Girl," a song about escapades with multiple girls around the world, Drake appeared with under age girls on stage.
Drake says their performance was effected by the last minute changes due to the death of Michael Jackson.
[watch here] "That, actually — to be honest — was a terrible idea that I'll never do to myself again," he said recently.
[watch here] "But I was being pressed from different areas to perform, and I think what really happened at the BET Awards is with the passing of Mike, the climate really changed, as far as the award show goes. I don't think it called for us to perform "Every Girl" and "Always Strapped," and I think it was an award show filled with tributes and music and these genuine heartfelt speeches. And to sort of climax out of a very tongue-n-cheek point, and then people misconstruing Wayne's daughters and her friends coming out on stage — it was just timed very poorly and it definitely wasn't planned like that, but with that being said, it is what is. I believe in Wayne and myself and it's nothing we can't bounce back from. To anyone who was offended, my personal apologies, it wasn't intended to offend anybody." [watch here]
