Page 2 - Drake Bell Blasts Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga And Ariana Grande For Sending "Awful, Terribe Message" To Fans
"If I catch one of my fans saying something improper, a gay slur or any derogatory term, I instantly tweet directly at them and say, 'This isn't how we do it,'" he continued. "Lady Gaga, who says she's so anti-bullying, was on [Howard Stern's SiriusXM show] and Howard read all of these awful, awful tweets her fans had been sending him, [and] asked how she responded to her fans doing the exact antithesis of what she stands for. She said, 'You have to understand, Howard, it comes from a place of love. They don't want to see me get hurt.'"
He also thinks Lady Gaga is a hypocrite
"I couldn't believe she didn't take a second to address her fans and say how disgusted she was they'd do something like that, Drake added. "But none of them do that. Justin Bieber just tweets, 'Yeah, Beliebers, go hard' when they're attacking somebody. Ariana Grande's fans told Perez Hilton that he and his son needed to die and get cancer, and she just fed it. It's disgusting."
As for these influential figures being a role model? Drake thinks how they carry themselves is disgusting, but do not panic as he is more than willing to take that responsibly.
But not to worry as Drake is the best role model for these young fans
"We didn't sign up to be role models, but we are," he explained. "Artists like Justin Bieber or Lady Gaga have more sway over popular minds than a politician. They could get on a pedestal and say, 'This is how you should treat people,' but instead [Bieber's] going around telling kids that as long as you have enough money and swag, you can do whatever you want. Instead of working to change the world, [he's saying,] 'Work to get as much money and power as possible because then you can do whatever you want and no one can say anything to you.' I just think that's a gross, awful, terrible message," he concluded, adding, "I'm all about unity and loving your neighbor."
