For Drake, every Christmas gift is not meant to be placed under the tree. The OVO rapper unwrapped a stripper pole for Christmas and showed it off for his Instagram followers.

Perhaps to signal a naughty 2013, he posted this image of his new toy with his OVO Owl mascot sitting in the chair.

“Christmas gift to myself…#KODatthecrib #Areyouaperformer,” he wrote.

Aside from revealing his new present, he also took to Instagram to rain on the holiday merchandisers who were using his “YOLO” slogan to sell T-shirts and hats.

First he posted a picture of a rack of “YOLO” baseball caps, presumably in Walgreens. (They were selling for 2/ $12.99.) Along with the image, he posted this note: “Walgreens you gotta either chill or cut the cheque.”

Then he posted an picture of a T-shirt emblazoned with an image of Snoopy and Charlie Brown. The Peanuts characters can be seen posing under the words, “YOLO, that’s my motto.”

Drake’s note to the T-shirt sellers: “Macy’s…same goes for you.”

The term YOLO became instantly popular after Drake released “The Motto,” a single from his 2011 Take Care album. On the song, which also features Lil Wayne, Drake raps: “You only live once: that’s the motto f****** YOLO.”

As with all things Twitter popular, the word faced a backlash. But it was still in contention for Oxford USA’s word of the year, but bowed to GIF.
