In true, pour-my-heart-out Drake style, the artist has admitted to being hurt by Rihanna’s unreciprocated love. In the latest issue of Elle Magazine he said the singer who he collaborated with on the hit “What’s My Name,” was “the first girl with any fame that paid me any mind.”
“You spend days reading about this person in magazines. All of a sudden you have this number-one song and you’re at some birthday party and there she is. And you’re just some naive kid from Toronto staying in some shitty-A$$ hotel who got invited to this party on a whim. That’s just how it happened.”
Something else that “just happened” was a hook up between the two at New York’s Lucky Strike bowling alley. A line in Drizzy’s track “Fireworks” explains it all.
“I could tell it wasn’t love/ I just thought you Fawked with me/ Who could have predicted/ Lucky Strike would have you stuck with me… Damn, I kept my wits about me, luckily/ What happened between us that night it always seems to trouble me/ Now all of a sudden, these gossip rags want to cover me/ And you making it seem like it happened that way because of me.”
It didn’t take long for Drake to become smitten with the good girl gone bad. Unfortunately, for him, the feeling wasn’t mutual.
“At the time it hurt, but she didn’t mean to,” he told Elle. “I’ll never put that on her. I was hurt because I slowly started to realize what it was. I guess I thought it was more.”
So is Nicki Minaj the new love soothing his heart? Speaking on his pretend Twitter marriage to the “Super Bass” star he said, “I’d marry Nicki. I think Nicki would be one of the only people that would understand me at the end of all this and be able to love me.”
Dang. That is deep. Drake clearly takes his love life seriously. But he might be oversharing. What do you think, ladies?
