Nicki is always calling Drake her brother. But the questionable way she’s always crawling all over him have had some of us scratching our heads.
Recently though, Nicki and Drake took a break from the hectic schedules to pal it up at a local 7-11…or some type of convenient store.
And they really did look like brother and sister.
Drake told Nicki she and a friend could get whatever she liked because he was balling owt that day. Apparently, he’s good for it.
Anyway, there’s no real reason to share this video other than the fact it’s incredible cute.
Check out the video below and let us know if you believe that these two really are brother and sister or do they need more people.
Nicki Minaj had the internets going nuts when she released the cover art for her new single “Anaconda” with her full derriere on display. And after a bit of a delay, so Beyoncé could release the “Flawless” remix, Minaj has finally released the visuals for the song many have already deemed subpar, considering Nicki’s rapping ability.
But back to the video, it’s extra as you might imagine with plenty of booty shaking, though I’ve seen raunchier. It’s not exactly safe for work but it’s no “Tip Drill” either.
And I’m not going to lie, there were times when I just had to laugh at Nicki’s foolishness. Twerking while giving the camera, the straightest face ever, cutting a banana in half, after she was acting like she was performing fellatio, and playing the bongos on another girl’s behind are just too stupid not to deserve a chuckle. That’s not even mentioning the lap dance she gives her “brother”-friend Drake at the end.
It’s clear that Nicki Minaj won’t regard this song as one of her greatest but, with nearly two million views on YouTube already, it’s clear she knows what she’s doing.
During a set in his Drake VS Lil Wayne concert series, Drake accidentally made comments that prompted the NBA to fine the Toronto Raptors. Oops. Did he do that?
While performing in his hometown Toronto, Drake gave a shout out to NBA MVP Kevin Durant who was in the audience: “You know, my brother Kevin Durant was kind enough to come to the show tonight and watch us. I just want him to see what would happen if he came to play in Toronto. Let him know what would happen.” The crowd chanted in response.
The NBA league deemed his statement a public recruitment pitch. ESPN reports Durant will become a free agent come summer 2016. Teams like the New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets, LA Lakers and his home state team, the Washington Wizards, are vying to snag Durant with salaries that will out match each other. Drake, who has served as the Toronto Raptors’ global ambassador since 2013, violated the NBA’s anti-tampering rules. Therefore, he landed the Raptors a fine of $25,000.
Below is a video of the incident occurring. Hopefully Drake’s innocent shout out will be a lesson to fellow team ambassadors.
Update: The NBA allegedly offered to drop the $25,000 fine if the team removed Drake as their global team ambassador. Thankfully for Drake, the Raptors remained loyal and passed on that option. It should be noted, Drake’s ambassador position is unpaid. Globe and Mail reports: “The Toronto hip-hop star has a title, but it cannot be claimed he is an employee of the basketball team. By definition, an employee works for wages. Drake draws no salary. When the Raptors gave out Drake-branded OVO T-shirts at a game in January, they were purchased at cost. Drake didn’t make a nickel of profit from them.”
Earlier this week, we reported on the questionable imagery incorporated into Drake’s OVO Festival performance in Toronto. In case you missed it, the actor-turned-rapper was performing “Days Of The East” when an image of Rihanna popped up on the screen followed by a six. Then, another image believed to be of the singer popped up and was followed by another six. The second six was followed up by another image of the Bajan beauty and then, another six. Naturally, fans assumed he was calling his former flame the devil. What else would it mean? Drake, however, is denying calling Rihanna the Antichrist.
My album title is VIEWS FROM THE 6. The 6 is Toronto. Rih is a great girl who I know is about to kill this tour with Eminem. It’s all love!!

I mean, I suppose we have to take his word for it, but his explanation still doesn’t reveal why he flashed the images in the first place.

You know they say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, but apparently, a man scorned is nothing to play with either.
Last night, Drake performed in Toronto during his fifth annual OVO Fest. And as he was sing-rapping his song “Days In The East” there were some pretty haunting/disturbing graphics playing on one of the screens in the background.
As Drake harmonizes, a fiery number six pops up on screen, in the midst of flames. Then immediately after it, a picture of Rihanna. Then another six, allegedly another picture of Rihanna (I couldn’t make it out.), then another six.
Now, I’m no Biblical scholar–and you almost have to be to interpret Revelations–but it’s pretty much common knowledge that 666 is the mark of the beast aka the devil.
It’s no secret that Drake and Rih Rih have had their break ups to make ups. But whatever happened with them, likening her to the devil is a bit much, right? I typically ride for Drake over Rihanna but even I can admit that this is eerily out of line.
Maybe we could have interpreted the whole thing incorrectly. Maybe that wasn’t Rihanna at all and perhaps those three 6’s mean something else to Drake. But even as I wrote that, I know it’s highly unlikely.
Wonder if he’ll speak on this.
Take a look at the video below. Do you think this was a jab at Rihanna? Did Drake take it too far?
“Made A Lot Of Mistakes”: Chris Brown Reflects On Recent Legal Troubles, Says He’s Ready To Move Forward
Since Chris Brown was released from jail on June 2, we’ve seen him make up and break up with Karrueche Tran, drop some new music, gain a few pounds (that if you ask me, looks great on him), perform at the BET Awards, vacay in St. Tropez, and drop all drama with former foe Drake. But aside from all that, we’ve heard very little from Brown about his thoughts on his time behind bars and how he feels now that he’s out. He decided to have a reflective moment over the weekend when he shared his thoughts on the “mistakes” he’s made on Instagram. Brown says he’s grateful for the tough moments. He started off his statements by posting the picture below, and captioning it with this:
We’re all just hoping he’s left that past behavior behind and will focus on his music from now on. He has way too much talent to let it be clouded by foolishness.
We told you last week that despite their past beef (which included causing riotous fights inside of a NYC nightclub in 2012), Drake and Chris Brown have put their differences aside and were snapped working together in the studio. In fact, they’ve become so chummy since putting an end to their issues, that last night, the two teamed up for a skit for the ESPYs, which Drake was the host of.
In a very funny skit called “Drake vs Blake,” the egos of the rapper and Clippers star, Blake Griffin, went to head-to-head as a difference in opinion about a movie title they were pretending to collaborate on turned into a prank war. At one point in the skit, Drake is getting surgery and realizes that Griffin is the surgeon. But he surprises Drizzy by saying, “Oh I’m not the surgeon…he is.”
That’s when Brown popped up in surgical gear to say, “YOLO motherf**ker!” Once the skit ended (after a hilarious impression of Griffin by Drake), Brown made another appearance, but this time with Griffin to let the audience know that they’d kidnapped Drake and were taking over the awards. Not only was all of this funny, but it was actually quite heartwarming to see grown folks leave sour feelings behind so that they can work together to do big things. Who has time for all that drama anyway?
Check out the skit for yourself below. If you watched the ESPYs last night, what did you think of Drake as a host?
Honey, this is why I just cannot rock with Wendy Williams. As entertaining as I find her and as inspirational as her story is, I think she’s just mean. She picks and chooses which celebrities she’s going to defend and which she’s going to defame. I know some of y’all like the fact that she keeps it real but sometimes that realness is just messy for messy’s sake. Recently on her show, during her infamous hot topics segment, Wendy spoke about Chris and Drake burying the hatchet and appearing the studio together, leading many to believe they’re working on an album.
And you know what it is, when you mention Drake and Chris, you almost always have to mention Rihanna. She started by saying Drake told Chris that the fling he had with Rihanna… was just that, a fling. It wasn’t serious.
Here’s what Wendy had to say in response:
“I don’t think anyone but Chris has been serious about Rihanna ’cause Rihanna…don’t take this the wrong way because this is an observational observation. Rihanna is like you hit the skins and scram.
Well I didn’t make that up! She puts it out there. Like Rihanna is not girlfriend material. Am I wrong? Rihanna is the kind of girl she’s hot, she’s sexy. You do her, then you take your penicillin.
Let me get out of this while I can. Let’s move on.”
Come on. That’s far too much. And what’s so foul about it is that in one breath Wendy encourages women in their twenties (the current age group in which Rihanna now finds herself) to live their lives, be out and free and sexually expressive. But in another she shames Rihanna for essentially being dirty, in her opinion..
Can we just state as a matter of fact that Wendy doesn’t know Rihanna’s vagina?
Furthermore, let’s not pretend that both Drake and Chris Brown have not been out here. And neither one of them has ever attempted to keep it a secret. And yet I don’t recall anyone–specifically Wendy– calling either one of them dirty because of it.
Take a look at the video below and let us know what you think about Wendy’s comments.
Several months ago, there were reports that Chris Brown and Drake had squashed their epic 2012 beef with one another that started whenpeople from their camps were seen throwing bottles in a Soho nightclub. Late last year, sources say Drake and his crew came out to see Brown perform at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. And then afterward, they were backstage hugging, drinking and talking about collaborating with one another.
Apparently the mediator was music executive Abou Thiam, Akon’s brother and Tracee Ellis Ross’ rumored on-again, off-again boo.
And the proof that the two have ended the madness came in the form of an Instagram picture featuring both Drake and Chris is the studio together early this morning.
No word on whether they’ve actually worked on a track together or if they’re just kicking it but we’ll see.
If they do collaborate, we wonder if their common link will come up…
Everyone Stop What You’re Doing. There’s a Drake lookalike on Instagram and we’re having a bit of trouble telling the two apart.
This Is Drake
You may recognize him from “Degrassi High” and some of your favorite slow jams.
