Ever since Drake’s 30th birthday party almost two weeks ago, there has been a rumor spoken at a few volumes higher than a stage whisper through a megaphone that he and Taylor Swift might be in the beginnings of being a thing. Taylor and Drake reportedly spent so much time together at his birthday party, which allegedly included Drake introducing Taylor to his mama Sandi Graham. A source tried to stop that rumor a bit by telling TMZ that they were just “close” friends.
Last night, Drake proved that he and Taylor are a match made in attention-seeking stunt relationship heaven by Instagramming a picture of them being “close” (at least in term of location) at his birthday party. Drake must have heard that the rumors about him and Taylor were cooling off a little, because that picture went up apropos of nothing with the caption: “Is that velvet?” I don’t know Drake, if only there was a way you could find out without having to set a gossip trap for your 29.6 million followers. Like, oh, maybe texting your stylist? Oh silly me, that wouldn’t get any attention.
Taylor hasn’t Instagrammed anything in response. She’s probably still working with her PR team on finding the perfect wheelchair parking sign to pose next to. “What do you think about me holding a male duck? Too much?”
Just like last time this rumor popped up, a source has told TMZ that Drake’s picture means nothing and that the only thing that could be going on between Drake and Taylor is a future music project. I’m sorry Taylor, but clearly your “source” isn’t getting through to Drake. You’re going to have to sit Drake down over a chocolate milkshake and break the news personally before that lovesick puppy goes out and gets a “6 + 13” tattoo.
