Drake Says Nicki Minaj Is Like Family
Drake on good terms with Rihanna, reminisces on his "Best Rap Album" win at this year's Grammys.
During an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Canadian singer/rapper Drake gave fans a little insight into his dating life during a brief game in which the Young Money artist was shown pictures of different women and commented on what his relationship with that particular person is, if any.
The game first kicked off with a picture of Rihanna, a singer Drake says he had a moment with, before moving on to a picture of fellow Young Money emcee Nicki Minaj.
Not one to shy away from doting on the Jamaica, Queens rapstress, Drake went on to express his appreciation for Nicki before sharing that the two have never had any sort of intimate moment with one another.
“Me and Nicki are like family. I love Nicki with all my heart. We haven’t really shared like an intimate moment like that,” Drake revealed.
Ironically, it was just a few weeks ago when Nicki seemed uncertain of Drake’s fate at the Lil Wayne-led Young Money Entertainment.
Other women brought up during Ellen’s game included model Tyra Banks, Kim Kardashian, and actress Kat Dennings.
Prior to speaking on Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, and a handful of other women, Drake spoke briefly on his “Best Rap Album” win at this year’s Grammy Awards and the moment he decided to drink a “vodka concoction” out of his award.
“I did. I got my first Grammy. I got my first Grammy and I gave it to my mom actually,” said Drake. “It’s at my mom’s house…And yeah, I actually took shots out of my Grammy when we got it.”
Drake’s appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” comes days before the September 24 release of the rapper’s third studio album, Nothing Was The Same.
