Drake is finally speaking out about Amanda Bynes’ strange love/hate tweets about him.

“I don’t even know who that is doing that or what that’s about,” the Jewish Canadian rapper told XXL, whose 150th anniversary issue bears his face. ” If that is her, I guess it’s a little weird and disturbing. It’s obviously a behavioral pattern that is way bigger than me.”

“Whoever is behind it, whether it’s her or somebody else, they know people are paying attention so they keep it going,” he added.

Bynes first started tweeting about Drake in March, when she asked him to “murder her vagina.”. She has called him “ugly” countless times, asked to be friends, declared him to be the man of her dreams and labeled him “gorgeous.”

Incidentally, the latter was her last tweet before her latest shenanigans landed the starlet in lockup.

The troubled actress is currently being held on a court-ordered extended 5150 psychiatric hold in a California institution after she attempted to start a fire in someone’s driveway in late July,

Despite the long-awaited acknowledgement of his power over Amanda Bynes’ heart and mind, the best part of Drake’s interview is his take on what it means to be successful: “I get Jewish people coming up to me proud like, “Mazel Tov, bro. Come to my house for Shabbat dinner.”
