Drake's life isn't perfect
Drake admits his life is ''never all good''.
The 25-year-old rapper doesn't want people to think he is miserable because of his introspective lyrics but insists he is painting a real picture of his existence.
He said: ''I hope I don't come across as being Debbie Downer. It's just hard for me to paint the fašade and be like, 'All my problems are in the past, look at the Rolly, look at the money, I got everything' because it doesn't work like that.
''It's not all happy, it's never all good. I live by that saying. That's how I protect myself in life, 'It's never all good.' ''
However, the 'Resistance' hitmaker insists his life is not a ''shambles'' because he is honest and open about his problems.
He told NME magazine: ''If I didn't have it together, I wouldn't be able to be honest and open with you. I think people think my life is a shambles and it's really not.
''The reason I can make an album like this is because I actually have a grip on my life, I recognise all my issues.
''I'm not this depressed, emotional guy that people try and paint me to be, I'm just observant. My mother always said 50 per cent of resolution to a problem is recognizing the problem. The other 50 per cent is solving it.''
