It’s hard to deny that Drake is a dreamboat. He’s a rapper, but with a sensitive side—the kind of guy who invests in MatchaBar, for instance. Heck, he even inspired a yoga class.

So just how does he keep his hotline blingin’? Turns out that Drake is a serious advocate of charcoal toothpaste.

In a recent Instagram—which flaunts his pearly whites—some Internet trolls pointed out that he had “stuff in his teeth.” (Even your fave celebs can’t catch a break.) Well, champagne papi (AKA Drake’s Instagram alias) took to his comments section to defend himself.

He responded directly to the critic by saying, “I brush with activated charcoal before any club night.” Though charcoal may look weird to brush with because it’s midnight black—and you want your teeth to be the exact opposite color—it actually absorbs impurities. And it does so without any added chemicals. Kudos Drake for your healthy hygiene, and for setting the haters straight.

You can also get whiter teeth by brushing with turmeric (yes, really). And this is the truth about whether you should have fluoride in your toothpaste.
