Degrassi: The Next Generation alums recall filming Drake's new music video earlier this week
The majority of the original cast gathered Sunday at 6 p.m. for the "I'm Upset" music video shoot that didn't end until around 5 a.m. the next morning, reports Buzzfeed. “For a lot of us, we didn’t get a real high school reunion, so this was maybe the closest thing,” says Jake Epstein. “There was a lot of laughing, swapping stories, and catching up. It immediately felt fun.” Adds Jake Goldsbie: “I definitely had some moments of being on set and looking around and being like, ‘Where am I?’ It was insane. It was crazy being on the set with Aubrey, but he’s also Drake.”

“The superstar A-list has finally, definitively abandoned the MTV Video Music Awards,” says Rob Harvilla, noting the absence of big names like Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Drake and Rihanna. “The supply,” he adds, “of brand-name artists who need the VMAs at all is dwindling every day.” As a result, he says, “the 2017 VMAs scrambled to fill that fearsome power vacuum, clinging to its few genuine A-listers for dear life… And presiding over it all was poor, poor, poor Katy Perry, flexing those cringe-comedy muscles as she fired off wan gags about fidget spinners, The Handmaid’s Tale, Frye Festival, Hillary Clinton, and the plain fact that half this show’s target audience was watching Game of Thrones instead.” PLUS: VMAs downplaying of hip-hop is why it’s become irrelevant, VMAs benefited from being politically muted, why was the ceremony so sleepy?, transgender service members attended the VMAs, Katy Perry was mocked for her terrible monologue, “Moonman” renamed “Moon Person,” one of the most anti-Trump moments occurred during the commercial break, Adam Levine slammed “utterly horrible” VMAs on Twitter, and MTV used Heather Heyer’s mom to communicate its heart and soul.
