Drake gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
If you’ve been reading my blog long enough, you know this has been near the top of my Gossip Genie wish list. Maybe even at the very, very top. For a while there it was looking unlikely. But lately… Oh lately… They tease. I hope they’re not teasing. Because this is my happiness. Full Story

Drake’s been on tour in Paris. And…Rihanna also happens to be in Paris. Ohhhhh realllllly? There was a dinner the other night. Last night they were both at Club 79 – where Robin Thicke was groping strange women not too long ago – and some are saying they were on it. I just got an email telling me that they were hooking up all night. Full Story
Drake was supposed to be on the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone. The magazine decided to go with Philip Seymour Hoffman instead. And Drake decided to rage about it on Twitter. What initially set him off was that he claims that he didn’t disrespect Kanye West in the interview. This quote in particular is what offended him: "There were some real questionable bars on (Yeezus). Full Story
Remember when Macklemore won the Grammys for Best New Artist and rap album and then he posted a text message he sent to Kendrick Lamar on social media telling him that he should have won and whatever? Click here to see it. Lame sh-t, right? I turn the dial when Macklemore comes on the radio. Full Story
Oh look. It’s RiRi. It’s Drizzy. And they hit up a club together this weekend in LA, exited separately, but got into the same car. What happened after? Well, if I were writing it, I’d have them figure it out – finally. But this is a book that just won’t end. And we don’t even know what happened to Zoe Kravitz. Full Story
Flowers In The Attic did not deliver on Saturday night.
But you know who did?
The people who follow Drake’s career in microscopic detail (Duana) weren’t surprised. The thing about Drake is that he never half-asses. He was great in his sketches and really great during his musical performances. And when I say great, I mean he was committed, even when some others would have checked out. Like in the Indiana Jones skit. Which was terrible. And the only thing that made it tolerable was that he maintained his energy throughout. He would not let it die.
For those of us who were born in Toronto and/or live here (again) now though, well, it was all about the monologue. Drizzy didn’t even wait a minute before namechecking his hometown. And Degrassi. Read Full Intro
If I could have I would’ve planted a hidden camera at Duana’s this week just to watch her skipping around. She won’t admit it but I promise you, she’s been skipping in anticipation for Saturday – which will be her happiest day. All her texts to me the last few days have been heavy on exclamations too.

As you know, Drake and Rihanna are my jam, my Genie wish. But as I also said last week, Drake managed to find an exception. It’s not like Matt Kemp who went from Rihanna to one of Kanye West’s fiancee’s sisters. There is not only no shame in hooking up with Zoe Kravitz, it actually comes with a lot of swagger. Full Story

Rihanna and Drake… Please don’t tease. Because I want this too much. I want there to be a Rihanna + Drake. Is it time, finally? The way I’ve scripted them in my imagination, Rihanna is the reason Drake hasn’t had a bonafide in so long. He’s been waiting for her to be ready. Full Story
Chris Brown apparently facebooked yesterday that he was working in studio with Drake. The two were at the iHeartradio event a couple of weeks ago in Vegas and it was supposedly Brown who went into Drake's dressing room to talk things through. So the feud is officially over. Credit to Brown there for initiating the peace? Sure. Full Story
Hold On We’re Going Home is on repeat when I’m getting my makeup done every morning before The Social. I love this song. I know it’s not the most original song. I know it’s not a song that will be remembered. But right now, for some reason, it’s my chill jam. And also, being from Toronto, we have a little Drake bias over here. Full Story

I’ve been praying hard at my Gossip Genie for a Rihanna-Drake re-hookup. Have you noticed that Drake isn’t “linked” to many women the way famous men are constantly being “linked” to women? There’s a Toronto bias here at work, sure, but if you know about Drake and his relationship with his mother, and if you read his recent profile in GQ Full Story
