    Drake's 50,000-Square-Foot Mansion Is All I Can Think About While Quarantined In My Tiny NYC Apartment

    There's a lot of gold.

    Because of the coronavirus pandemic, I've been spending a lot more time in my apartment than I usually do. As much as I love my NYC home, it's not exactly a city known for a lot of floor space. And given all the celebrities who've been posting pics of themselves quarantined inside their massive homes, I've naturally spent some time fantasizing about whose house I'd rather be holed up in.

    Hi MTV, welcome to my crib.

    Thankfully, Architectural Digest has solved that conundrum for me: Drake's manor.

    As the cover star of Architectural Digest's May issue, he's opened the doors to his 50,000-square-foot Toronto "manor house" — and high heavens, it is dazzling. Let's start with the cover:

    AD refers to this room as "The Great Room"...yeah.

    The gold detailing and high ceilings look a bit like a rig at a concert — but in gold.

    Note: Gold will be a reoccurring motif here.

    The perfect backdrop for a one-on-one concert, it also features this sweet custom piano designed by Ferris Rafauli and Takashi Murakami.

    I can personally play Take Care very badly on the keys, should Drake get tired.

    Next, the lounge, which...wow.

    Straight out of The Great Gatsby.

    I do not know if these bottles behind Drake are for decoration or for drinking, but either way, I'm down.

    In fact, we could probably have a pleasant drink and remain 6 feet apart the entire time.

    Next, I've been getting a tad restless cooped up indoors. Drake's place has the perfect solution: An NBA-sized basketball court.

    AD / Jason Schmidt

    I have not played basketball in 10 years, but I would be prepared to change this.

    There's even a plush couch where my friends and family could come and watch me lose to Drake.

    Finally, the master bathroom, which certainly looks roomy.

    AD / Jason Schmidt

    The tub weighs 4,000 pounds and is carved from a single block of marble.

    AD / Jason Schmidt

    I have never been in a marble bathtub, but I am willing to bet it is rather relaxing.

    To conclude: Drake, let us know if you need company!
