Drake is known for baring his heart and soul for the public with songs such as “Marvin’s Room” and “Trust Issues.” Despite the taunting about his emotional music, Drake opened up to Elle magazine about getting hurt by Rihanna, his fake marriage to Nicki Minaj over Twitter and how he feels about threesomes.
On getting hurt by Rihanna:
“At the time it hurt, but she didn’t mean to. I’ll never put that on her. I was hurt because I slowly started to realize what it was. I guess I thought it was more. 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. And you’re just some naive kid from Toronto staying in some shitty-ass hotel who got invited to this party on a whim. That’s just how it happened.”
On being lonely:
“When you’re on the road and moving city to city, when someone isn’t there at the end of the night, you feel empty. The 15 or 20 seconds after a man reaches his climax is the realest moment he’ll ever have in his life. And if you happen to be with somebody that isn’t someone you want to converse with, you start feeling like, I wish I was just here watching True Blood by myself.”
On his fake Twitter marriage to Nicki Minaj:
“I don’t know if we were really pretending. 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.”
On bringing girls home to mom:
“The most intense thing I’ve ever done was bring a girl to Passover dinner. [My mom] just wants me to be happy, but I’m sure she’d love it if I married a Jewish girl.”
On receiving naked pictures:
“If you send them without me asking, it’s like, You’ve done this before. But I’m away a lot. If there’s a woman I’m into, I might want to get a picture from her to handle business myself, as opposed to doing something I might regret.”
On if he’s had a threesome:
“I’ve never had one. I swear. I’m a one-woman kind of guy.”
Many may joke about Drake being overly sensitive, but I think being expressive about your feelings is a good thing. Women constantly complain about how hard it is to get men to open up and communicate how they feel. Drake is actually saying he doesn’t care if people make fun of him, this is just who he is and I respect that.
