Offered is the promotional video for this year's MTV Video Music Awards featuring Drake who is giving some taste of his acting talents by utilizing a special source of inspiration. The Toronto-native explains:
"I get to channel my inner Frank Sinatra In the acting world, you gotta have reference points. I like to get into characters. 'Mo' Better Blues' is like one of my favorite movies of all time. This reminds me of Denzel, who played a character called Bleek Gilliam. I'm trying to channel that today. There's a '50s theme. They got it right, though. They got the set and the wardrobe. I feel like I'm here."
Set for a live perfomance at the award show, Drake is also nominated in the categories "Best Hip-Hop Video" and "Best Male Video". The 2010 MTV VMAs will take place at the Nokia Theater, in Los Angeles, California on September 12.
