Go ahead and pour one out for all the future nasty-ass lap dances between Nicki Minaj and Drake that will never be. In honor of the release of Drake’s new album Views, my liquid of choice will be a bottle of peach drink that I purchased with a Toonie at a Tim Hortons inside an Esso on Kennedy Road (that was the most Toronto sentence I’ve ever written).
Nicki Minaj and Drake worked together on a bunch of songs, the most recent being “Truffle Butter.” Drake even let Nicki drop her silicone butt balls on his lap at the end of the video for “Anaconda“, which is pretty much the clearest definition of friendship that I can think of. But their friendship seems to be over for now. Drake recently spoke about his relationship with Nicki during an interview Apple Radio’s Beats 1 (via E! News), and he admitted that they’re not talking anymore. It has everything to do with that slap fight Drake got into with Nicki’s not-fiance Meek Mill last year.
“I don’t really talk to Nicki. Another person I have a lot of love for. She dealt with me how I would expect her to—with class. I always have respect and love for her. Unfortunately, we haven’t spoke.”
That’s such a shame. A ~sensitive feelings~ type like Drake really needs a no-filter motivational bitch in his life who can grab him by the shoulders and shake some self-esteem into him every once in a while. “Don’t act like you didn’t spend the whole night stalking your ex on Facebook, I looked at your internet history while you were in the bathroom. Now come on, put on some clean panties, we’re going to the club. I’m gonna get you laid.”
Speaking of that new album, Drake has been promoting the shit out of it today on Instagram with a series of fancy pictures that were shot by David Cronenberg’s daughter Caitlin. I don’t know why Drake is done up like some kind of aloof James Bond villain from the 416, but I do know I don’t totally hate it.
