Drake currently features on Rihanna’s upcoming new single ‘What's My Name’, proving that all is well between the two. In past interviews the Canadian rapper revealed that he and RiRi had enjoyed a short lived romance, which later left him feeling used, saying that she made him feel like a “pawn”. During a recent radio interview, Rihanna dismisses those claims, stating that the two were just friends...
“I would definitely say, that was wrong, he doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” Rihanna explained on Power 105.1’s Morning Show. “We just became friends and we left it at that. We get along really well. Drake has a youthful thing about him and he is very melodic with the way he writes and I felt I needed someone like that for ‘What's My Name’.”
During the interview the ‘Rude Boy’ singer also spoke about reading blogs and revealed exactly what she thinks about the cruel bloggers who constantly write bad things about her: “I still read the blogs sometimes, it depends on what it is I am trying to find out,” she said. “I’m a lot more numb to it now only because I understand what it is.
“It’s a community for people who don’t have anything else to do and hate themselves, they hate their life, they hate their job, they hate their appearance, they are uncomfortable with who they are so what makes them feel good is talking smack about other people who they think they will never ever see in their life and they happen to be celebrities.”
She continues: “It seems impossible to ever have the opportunity to say these things to their face, so they get to hide behind their computer.”
