Drake Responds In A Hugely Sane Manner To Amanda Bynes

Once upon a time, Drake was the object of Amanda Bynes' crazy, when she tweeted back in March, "I want Drake to murder my vagina." At the time, it seemed...well, it seemed odd, but it also didn't necessarily seem like she was in love with Drake so much as she was falling apart at the seams and needing some sort of psychological intervention.

Since then, just such an intervention has indeed occurred. Bynes was admitted to a psychiatric hospital—and is reportedly doing well!—and in response, Drake outed himself as the most mature person around when it comes to dealing with Bynes' questionable comments.

In an interview with XXL Magazine, the singer said:

I don’t even know who that is doing that or what that’s about. 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.

So. Yes. Way to acknowledge that mental illness is way larger than one tweet, and that her behavior is about a problematic pattern rather than legitimate feelings that she harbors towards anyone.
