Halle Berry has taken a firm stance against Drake’s use of her image covered in slime for his latest track’s cover art. While some have questioned her reaction, Halle clarified that Drake did approach her for permission, and she flatly declined.
The buzz around Drake’s new song, “Slime You Out,” featuring SZA, has been in full swing, with fans discussing the eye-catching cover art. One curious fan raised a question about why Halle Berry was making such a fuss over a picture that belongs to Getty Images.
Halle Berry promptly responded to the inquiry, saying, “Cuz he asked me and I said NO that’s why.” She added, “Why ask if you intend to do what you want to do ! That was the f*** you to me. Not cool You get it?”
Shortly after Drake released the single on Friday, Halle Berry took to the internet to express her discontent, throwing subtle shade at the rapper. She revealed that Drake had not obtained her permission to use a photo from the 2012 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards. Halle emphasized the need to be the bigger person when those you admire disappoint you, hinting at her disappointment in Drake’s actions.
Drake, on the other hand, chose to respond cryptically on Sunday by sharing a picture of himself at a card table while wearing a shirt that reads, “What the hell is going on?”
The question remains: is Halle Berry’s reaction an overreaction?
