Canadian rapper Drake is well-known for his viral dance moves, his role as Jimmy Brooks in Degrassi: The Next Generation, and his love for Rihanna. However, what fans might not know is that he is a die-hard Harry Potter fan — so much so that he’s considering spending $160,000 on a copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
The 31-year-old artist opened up about his Harry Potter obsession in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, reports People.com. “Yeah, I read them all,” Drake said, speaking about the fantasy book series, adding, “I should get it. My birthday’s coming up. Maybe I’ll buy it for myself as a treat.”
The Degrassi star-turned-Grammy winner is returning to his cinematic roots. In September, Drake made his debut as a producer with the premiere of The Carter Effect, a documentary on basketball star Vince Carter, at the Toronto International Film Festival. With more projects in the works, he’ll step away from music — for now. “I’m sure I’ll stop (making music) one day,” he said. “When it starts to feel like I’m making it up. Hopefully I’ll catch it before I ever get there, right? But right now it feels like we just started, so I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. But I do plan on expanding — to take six months or a year to myself and do some great films. Music’s always there,” he added.
He also opened up about having a collection of super-expensive Birkin bags for his future wife — which range in cost from $12,000 to upwards of $200,000.
