While some celebs are dabbling in perfume making, accessories and full blown collections, Drake told GQ that he wants to produce a sweater line with Missoni, which makes sense considering his strong affinity for knitwear.
The magazine asked the Thank Me Later rapper and crooner if he had a favorite sweater out of his vast collection and while he couldn’t name just one, he did count his Missoni piece among the contenders. “It's a toss-up between three sweaters,” he said. “I'd say one would be obviously the OVO Owl sweater. I can wear it repetitively and no one calls me out on it. I have a cashmere Hermés sweater that I love. Lastly, any of my Missoni sweaters.”
He also had something to say to all the critics who clown his love for the cozy staple. “F*ck you, if you don’t like my sweater!” he shot back, loud enough for the magazine to note he turned heads. “It's funny because people only talk about me and sweaters because I don't give them anything else to talk about. I live in Canada, so any dirt I do you'll never see because we don't have the paparazzi up there! It's the stupidest thing, man, but I'll embrace it.” He added, “Hopefully Missoni hollers at me and we get a sweater line popping!”
Aww...we hope they do, too. This is clearly a piece of clothing he’s very passionate about! But before you go calling him sensitive about the subject, he also noted later in the interview, “I wish that we lived in a time and a generation where people would stop viewing my honesty as overly emotional.”
