Drizzy has made an impact with his thoughtful, introspective rhymes about fame and insecurity, but lately he’s been anything but mopey. And why should he be? Just look at how much fun his life is!

“Sometimes I’m [going to] smack a b–ch with flowers, sometimes I’m [going to] wax a motherf–ker, but I’m still a lady,” K.Michelle told her adoring audience at the Highline Ballroom in New York City on Thursday night.
