Drake is back at it, with another candid interview for W magazine’s “ART” issue.

It’s proven to be a busy year for the former “Degrassi” star, thanks to his surprise LP “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late,” an epic war of the words with Nicki Minaj’s boyfriend, Meek Mill, and most recently, his hot and heavy kiss with rumored girlfriend Serena Williams. In the pages of W, Drizzy expressed his desire to return to the screen. And while many have assumed he and Williams are an item, he even broke down his ideal girl.

“I can’t wait to get back into acting — No one ever asks me to do movies, and, although music is my focal point now, I’d love to do a film. That was the life that I lived before, and it would be interesting to live it again.” he said of his desire to return to acting.

As for his hometown, Toronto, (where he kicked off his acting career), the 28-year-old said he’s there for good: “Most people I know stay in Toronto. I plan to spend the rest of my life there. The talk, the smell, the sound that comes out of that city is home to me. When I think about the girls I want to get romantic with, it’s a girl from Toronto who knows what I’m talking about when we drive around the city.” So where does that leave him and Williams?

Needless to say, the “Take Care” recording artist isn’t afraid to be himself, regardless of this week’s headline, as he’s discovered his purpose. He said, “Realizing that I had a larger purpose was one of the most comforting, peaceful feelings. With music, especially, I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m a vessel to deliver emotion to people. I want to provide the background music to your life as you live it. I’m there for you in heartbreak and tragedy and joy. The thought of being remembered is what keeps me going. What I was trying to say is, the negatives don’t matter—it’s history that counts. At 19, I was just really, really excited to be in the room. Everything was romantic then. Now, nearly a decade later, it’s a bit different. I have to speak against negativity and conflict. There’s so much bullsh*t that you’re forced to address, but it’s okay. I’m afraid I sound boosie.”
