Drake and Nicki had a high profile romance back in 2009 right after Drake and Rihanna broke up. Drake tells Elle Magazine that even though he and Nicki are no longer together, he still says "I'd marry Nicki."
Over the years and over the course of their relationship the two always made jokes about getting married.
On Nicki’s song, “Moment 4 Life,” Drake raps that he “and Nicki Nick gettin’ married today." After those lyrics sent fans into a fit, Drake told Celebuzz that he was only "joking around" and he "never thought it would get so out of hand."
Drake, whose real name is Aubrey Graham (Woa, no wonder he changed it Drake) also jokingly tweeted, "Please refer to @nickiminaj as Mrs. Aubrey Drake Graham and don't stare at her too long. She's finally mine." Nicki tweeted back, "Yes, it's true. Drake and I tied the knot."
Apparently this was a joke, too bad nobody was laughing. Drake recalls, "My mom was actually like, 'What happened? How did you elope?' But we were just joking around. I never thought it would get so out of hand."
In his new Elle interview, the writer asked about the whole "marriage incident," Drake has now changed his tune, "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 this and be able to love me."
This is in the same interview where Drake confessed that Rihanna broke his heart. "[With Rihanna, I wasn't] necessarily the rebound guy. At the time it hurt, but she didn't mean to. I'll never put that on her. I was hurt because I started to slowly understand what it was. I guess I thought it was more."
While Drake is wallowing around in love-lost for his famous ex-girls, he also gives this sad statement to the mag.
"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," he confesses.
Can we get this guy a match.com account? This is the weepiest Elle interview ever. Also, Elle is a woman's magazine! This whole thing just gets more and more depressing. Is Patty Stanger available to set this guy up with Kelly Rowland or Ke$ha or something?
