Drake has made it clear that he wants “no new friends,” but the tide is turning for Drake and his rival Tory Lanez.
On Instagram, two pictures with the rappers standing together were posted yesterday. One of the photos was posted on the Instagram of both Tory Lanez and Drake, and was captioned with vague, yet amicable comments about each other and the city they represent.
Is this the end of their seven year beef? Only time will tell. But as of right now, everyone is agreeing that they are moving on so that Drake can focus on his beef with Meek Mill. The feud between Drake and Tory Lanez has a long history, beginning in 2010 and staying alive through Tory Lanez’s attacks on Drake. Drake clapped back occasionally at the little-known rapper, but sent his strongest rebuttal in his latest album:
His verses here include veiled references to Tory Lanez, and argue that Lanez wants to be like Drake, and only projects his insecurities about not being famous at Drake by insulting him.
Lucky for fans of both rappers, the feud seems to have subsided, and the question has turned to when the rappers will write a single together. For now though, two pictures on Instagram will be the only appearance together in public for Drake and Tory Lanez.
File this under today’s possibly most bizarre news. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department reported that 24-year-old Mesha Collins broke into Drake’s house on Monday — but all she wanted to do was to raid his fridge.
Police found Collins in a locked room alongside a collection of water bottles and soda cans. There was no evidence that she stole anything besides the beverages, nor did she cause any damage to the house. She was arrested, with a bail set for $100,000. The crime was “entering a residence with intent to steal the victim’s personal property.”
Attention all you pranksters out there. April Fools is just around the corner, which means it is officially your day to shine.
In celebration of the ultimate day of whimsy, and for anyone feeling a little tapped out on the ideas front, we pulled together the very best of celebrity foolery. From Dustin Hoffman’s ongoing bit of hiding behind trees to Amy Schumer trolling Kim and Kayne, here’s how Jewish stars do pranking right.
Dustin Hoffman messes with the paparazzi.
Dustin Hoffman loves to hide from photographers in the most creative ways possible. Below, find the Academy Award winning actor peeking out from behind tree branches, peering through binoculars and wearing a large paper bag over his head. As if we needed anymore reasons to love him.

Daniel Radcliffe pretends to be a receptionist.
Be still our hearts. Daniel Radcliffe took over as receptionist at NYLON Magazine’s office for a couple of hours, and it was just as delightfully awkward and endearing as you could possibly hope it would be. Oh yeah, and turns out Joe Jonas, who happened to be visiting the office that day, is kind of obnoxious.
Drake interviews people about Drake.
The singer took to the streets of LA in disguise to ask people what they really think about him.
Amy Schumer trolls Kim and Kanye.
Amy Schumer pranked Kim and Kanye in the most simple, yet highly effective way possible. She fell head first in front of them on the red carpet. The power couple seemed pretty unamused by the whole thing — but it made for a great photo op. “They knew I was an idiot and I completely respect their reaction,” she told BBC Radio 1.
That time Sarah Silverman “hooked up” with Matt Damon.
There’s a whole elaborate prank war that’s been going down between frenemies Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel, and the peak moment was definitely this music video Damon made with Kimmel’s then girlfriend Sarah Silverman. Bonus points for being really catchy as well.
(JTA) — Dutch tabloids recently had to teach their readers an exotic and rarely seen Jewish term: bar mitzvah.
The celebrities sections of the Telegraaf daily and the Het Parool were forced to explain the Jewish coming-of-age ceremony in reporting about one of the most extravagant private events held this year in Amsterdam: The 13th birthday party of Noah Nissan, which featured performances by the rapper Drake and the Hollywood star and singer Jamie Foxx. (The newspapers defined the occasion as a “worship ritual of spiritual maturation.”)
In a country where austerity is the norm due to centuries of Calvinist tradition, the late January event generated intense media interest. A host of other local and foreign stars — the Dutch comedian Najib Amhali and the DJ duo Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano, to name a few — performed at the prestigious Amstel Hotel, which Noah’s father, the hotelier Sabah Nissan, rented out completely.
While ostentatious, multimillion-dollar bar and bat mitzvah parties are not out of place in the United States, France and even Russia, they are extremely rare in Holland, which is home to a low-profile Jewish community of approximately 40,000.
Editors at the lifestyle magazine Quote made little effort to disguise their culture shock, adding the word “bizarre” to a headline informing readers of the purpose for Foxx and Drake’s visit to Holland.
“Forget the inauguration of Donald J. Trump,” the article read. “The wackiest event this weekend took place at the Amstel Hotel.”
But Drake is used to performing at b’nai mitzvahs. The rapper, who poked fun at his black and Jewish ancestry in a 2014 “Saturday Night Live” sketch involving his own rite of passage ceremony, seemed perfectly at home on stage at the Amstel Hotel, where he performed the songs “Hotline Bling” and “One Dance” while wearing a winter coat.
According to the Algemeen Dagblad daily, Drake blew off his concert at the Ziggo Dome theater in Amsterdam for Noah’s party. But Sabah Nissan told Quote that the cancellation had nothing to do with Drake’s appearance at the family’s event — his sound equipment had simply arrived too late for the other show.
(Drake finally appeared at the Dome a week later. He was also spotted a day after the bar mitzvah having dinner at a Japanese restaurant in the Dutch capital with former porn star Rosee Divine, who fans love for her sparkling personality and large posterior.)
The approximately 500 guests at the bar mitzvah got to enjoy waking up the following morning at one of Amsterdam’s most expensive hotels — Sabah Nissan booked dozens of rooms for the attendees.
The hotel has a special attraction for the Nissans, who had celebrated the bar mitzvah of Noah’s brother, Joshua, there in 2014.
Interestingly, both parties were not held at the Apollo Museum Hotel, which Sabah Nissan, 49, owns — and which has a unique connection to the family.
When Nissan and his family arrived with little money in the Netherlands as refugees fleeing oppression under Saddam Hussein in their native Iraq, the Dutch Jewish community’s welfare service, JMW, put the family up for the duration of their first six months in the country at the Apollo Museum.
“That was when I knew: One day, I will be the owner of this hotel,” he told Het Parool in 2010.
The Nissans’ success story was not without controversy.
According to the Vrij Nederland investigative magazine, Nissan was convicted of violating the Netherlands’ lenient laws against trading in soft drugs while building an empire of restaurants, cafes and marijuana coffee shops during the 1990s. In a 1994 parliamentary inquiry on international crime in Amsterdam, Nissan was flagged as one of 16 businessmen “with more or less criminal beginnings and/or clear criminal connections” who were active then in the city’s seedy Red Light District.
Nissan, who does not speak often to the media and currently lives on the Spanish island of Ibiza, has denied the charges.
Following the media frenzy that his son’s bar mitzvah caused in the Netherlands, Nissan also gave a rare interview to Quote, in which he claimed that he did not pay Foxx or Drake to entertain. Nissan said he has known Foxx for 17 years and the movie star was already in Europe filming in Hungary.
“I only paid for a private jet to bring him over and for his hotel room,” Nissan said.
Nissan added that Foxx came as a friend, not as an entertainer, and invited Drake to come along as well. But that doesn’t mean Nissan didn’t spend a pretty penny on the whole extravaganza.
“It comes down to what’s most important for a Jew and an entrepreneur: You have to save, save and then save some more – everything you can for the bar mitzvah,” Nissan said.
Alex Trebek’s rap career might have started from the bottom, but now he’s definitely here.
The “Jeopardy” host spat some lyrics from Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Kanye West on Monday’s show, during a segment called “Let’s Rap Kids!” As one might expect, it was all done in a very precise, professional fashion.
“6’ 7’ 8’ bunch…young money militia & I am the commissioner, you don’t want to start Weezy, ‘cause the F is for finisher,” Trebek read out in a delightfully deadpan voice.

He then lamented not getting enough airtime to showcase his skills. “I was just getting into this rap thing,” he quipped. “I’m not too good at it, but I was just getting into it.”
This isn’t the first time that Trebek has taken on the the hip-hop world. In past segments, he’s also channeled The Notorious B.I.G. and the Beastie Boys.
