It is often said that what you regret most at the end of your life are the things you didn't do. However, the celebrities in this gallery may disagree. Despite the fact that they seem to have reached their goals and made all the right choices, even they struggle with regrets.
Drake doesn't have many regrets, but speaking with Lil Yachty for the premiere episode of FUTUREMOOD’s 'Moody Conversations' series, he revealed two of them. The first was saying he expected to retire by 35 (he's 36) back when he was in his 20s. “I think that and sometimes when I’ve said girls names in songs those are the two things that I look back on and I’m like, ‘maybe I could have done without sh—ing on people for age or disrupting somebody’s life.”
At one point Yachty said he thought Drake was “just making girls’ names up” in all those songs, but Drake confirmed that they were all real, like in 2013’s track 'From Time' on which he rattles off names like Porsche, Summer, Bria and Courtney, Billboard reports. “The lyrics are never with ill intent,” he explained. But he added that someone explained to him once that it’s not necessarily what he says on his records, but the fact that he saying anything at all.
“In the sense that, ‘you don’t know what it does to me,'” he said of the unintended consequences. “‘You don’t know who my boyfriend is at the time,’ or ‘you don’t know what my family knows and doesn’t know. And for you to express any discontent for me in a song and call me by name then all of a sudden I’m left to pick up the pieces of my own life that I’ve tried to build up for myself.'” Drake said he's tried to stop name-calling in his songs but it's hard because he tries to be honest in his music.
