    i feel like whats happening is drake is with this other celebrity but its really only for publicity and fame even though hes with her he really just wants to be with some other girl who hes really in love with. "She spilled whisky on her shirt, she gon' have to get it cleaned
    She been going way too hard, someone has to intervene" from cameras im assuming hes trying to say that shes not all that and not what hes looking for.
    the girl he really wants is jealous and believes he actually loves the other lady which results in her being mad at drake and in the song hes explaining.

    He is saying that the chicks that he is with on his videos are only props. He is explaining this to is main woman because she is jealous. She wants Drake for herself. ( exclusively and wants him to show her off like the video girls. Ultimately,she leaves and Drake realizes her worth but it's too late.She has found someone else but she still has a connection with Drake. Drake knows she is a good girl...the one for him but out of respect for her...he tells her to go before she makes a mistake...the irony is Drake is the mistake and he knows it." Don't you go getting married...ect. is actually want he wants to say. He checks himself again and dies the right thing....he kets her go.

    Drake is with a girl, and he is also with a side chick. This side chick he loves, but the public eye wants him to be with the "girl in a ll the magazines." They are together "only on camera" and wants to be with the side girl and wants to let her know.

    I interpreted this as a girl who works so hard to perfect herself on camera yet when shes off camera she goes back to her usual shallow self who no one actually really knows.

    I think this song talks about those young girls that post pics of themselves thinking they got it all, but really they are good people in the inside. He's saying that its not worth the good inside of you to post revealing pics to boys you wish you can get, but being real can get you the real people. That's why the good ones go. :P
