Drake Reveals Fling With Rihanna in NYT Profile

    When stuff goes wrong between two musicians, sometimes there’s beef and sometimes there’s a broken heart. Mixtape rapper wunderkind Drake got a dose of the latter last year when he rendezvoused with pop vixen Rihanna to write a song for her Rated R album, which came out in November. Previously, he’d denied rumors of a romance by saying, “We’re young, having fun and enjoying life. That’s all.”


    Not! In an upcoming New York Times profile, Drake reveals that all that fun wasn’t innocent puppy kisses and he was really just a pawn for Rihanna’s feminine agency. “She was doing exactly what I’ve done to so many women throughout my life, which is show them quality time, then disappear,” he told the paper. “I was like, ‘Wow, this feels terrible.'” He put all that terrible feeling into “Fireworks” off his upcoming album Thank Me Later (which drops next Tuesday), where he raps “I could tell it wasn’t love / I just thought you’d f—ed with me” among other bummer lines. Who knew that a fling between two young, talented, attractive people could fail? Love is a battlefield, man. [MTV]
