Drake: ‘Rihanna Broke My Heart’
The Canadian rapper also said he would happily marry Nicki Minaj…
The Thank Me Later rapper hooked up with RiRi in 2009, and Drake recently told Elle magazine that he was starstruck and quickly developed feelings for the S&M star.
“That was the first girl with any fame that paid me any mind. You spend days reading about this person in magazines. All of a sudden you have this number one song and you're at some birthday party and there she is” he explained. “And you're just some naive kid from Toronto staying in some s**ty ass hotel who got invited to this party on a whim. That's just how it happened.”
But the Canadian added that although he was “hurt” when she dumped him, he doesn’t hold a grudge. “At the time it hurt, but she didn't mean to,” he told the magazine. “I'll never put that on her. I was hurt because I slowly started to realise what it was. I guess I thought it was more. That was the first girl with fame that paid me any mind.”
Drake also admitted that his jokey marriage proposal to his Young Money labelmate Nicki Minaj, which he made via Twitter last year, was only half a joke.
“I don’t know if we were really pretending,” he admitted, adding that he offer still stands. “I’d marry Nicki. I think Nicki would be one of the only people that would understand me at the end of all of this and be able to love me.”
Drake recently announced that he was pushing back the release of his next album, Take Care.
