Drake Opens Up About Rihanna, Connection with Nicki Minaj, & Chris Brown Fight

Drake

Drake has seen his name in plenty of headlines over the past year, whether for his relationship with Rihanna, his Twitter marriage to Nicki Minaj, or rumored fight with Chris Brown. The 25-year-old hip-hop phenom, whose latest album Take Care is expected to sell around 700,000 copies in its first week, spoke about some of the big names he’s been linked with in an interview with The Daily Beast. Find out about his “mind-blowing” encounter with Rihanna, his alleged altercation with Chris Brown, desire to meet President Obama, and why he could spend the rest of his life with Nicki Minaj.

On meeting Rihanna for the first time: “I came straight from Toronto, just a kid that was trying to get out of my mom’s house, and the first person I meet is a girl that’s the biggest person you could possibly meet at my age. So I meet her and it was just mind-blowing. I couldn’t believe she’d even want to talk to me. I read some interview where they painted me as so sad and heartbroken, but we’re cool. I was never torn apart by that situation.”
On rumors that Chris Brown elbowed him over Rihanna: “I respect Chris Brown. I’d like to call myself a friend—I don’t know if I’m allowed to do that. But I definitely didn’t get elbowed in my face. Somebody would’ve got knocked the f**k out.”
On meeting Bill Clinton: “One of my favorite pictures I have in my house is of me and Bill and I’m wearing a zebra Supreme jacket and he’s wearing a suit. It’s wild!”
On why Nicki Minaj is his perfect woman: “If there’s any woman in my life that’s the ideal woman for me, it’s definitely Nicki. I like the stripped-down Nicki. I like Nicki with no makeup, black hair, some casual clothes in a recording booth rapping an amazing verse. That’s sexy to me. I know some great women, but all jokes aside, Nicki is somebody I could spend my life with because I think we understand each other.”
On President Obama: “I ran into somebody who works for Barack Obama the other day, and she’s like, ‘I’m so sorry we haven’t called you, but we can’t have Canadian citizens perform or be a part of U.S. politics. I was like, ‘Well I’m a dual citizen!’ And she was like, ‘No way! Well, you’ve got to come now.’ So I think I might actually get a chance to meet Barack.”

    If Canadian citizen cant perform for the President….Please explain Justin Bieber doing so. I could just be ignorant but I thought you had to be living in the U.S. for 10 years to be considered a citizen.

    @Lawea, Drake has been living with his dad in memphis as a kid, so thats legit…but as far as Justin, Celebrities have special privileges…if Usain Bolt said he wanted to sprint for America he would be a citizen in hours…being a first generation child I know exactly how they operate and it’s not right

    @comment,
    He flirts with everybody & watch BTS of “What’s My Name” with Rihanna they flirted & they’ve kissed before & even dated a girl from “Best I Ever Had” for year, all while knowing Nicki…
    I think they’re good friends who has love for each other because they came up together. I honestly think Nicki doesn’t see him like that. I mean come on! He’s dated 10000097543 girls & makes songs for all of them. My thing is, if he cared the way he says, he wouldn’t be giving it up every where…
    Who wants that? I love Drake as an artist. It’s cute, but played out. It’s a known fact that if Rihanna took him serious or Taraji they would be his ‘Dream’ women 2…. FACT

    @CarsoFast, drake says he aint had a real girlfriend in 3 years and that was nebbby. HE said he just messes with random girls just b/c but is tired of doing that but wants a serious relationship thats probably why he saying this. and FACT is drake has been wanting to be in realtionship with nicki and is just wating for nicki to be ready

  19. someone

    First of all, it ain’t that serious, knocking Chris Beown the f*** out, come on! I’m sure it’s not even like that as far as Chris elbowing him! Thinngs always get blown way out when it comes to Chris Brown, I be glad when people finally let this dude live his life without all the damn drama!

    [Reply]

    Well Reply:

    @someone, I wish that was true but people STILL don’t let Chris live his life without drama. They never will. He’s just going to have to try to avoid all that negativity. At the end of the day, people are still checkin’ for his music.
