NonStop Pop Machines : Rihanna keeps making music so you’ll not stop thinking about her; Drake, because he can’t stop thinking about himself.
Drake’s critics might call his approach overemotional, sad-sack, or wimpy, but his version of masculinity is simple, and can be observed anywhere young men are hitting on people: First you act grave and sensitive; then you convey how weighty and fraught with complexity your life is; then you chin up and demonstrate how stoic and manly you are about it.
Wait. What? I guess. A little forced.
