Trust Ellen Degeneres to put someone like Drake on the spot when it comes to his personal and dating life.
The talk-show host didn’t hold back when Drizzy stopped through earlier this week for a pre-recorded taping, and from Drake’s reaction we can tell that he definitely didn’t know anything about it.
Ellen starts off by talking about his recent Grammy win before suddenly drifting off into more personal questions by setting up this game in which Drake would have to say whether or not he has dated whichever woman pops up on the screen.
As soon as we heard the whole concept of the game, we instantly knew Rihanna‘s head would pop up, and the awkwardness during this whole little segment was just unbearable to watch. Ha!
We’ve seen the pics and heard the reports that Drake hooked up with RihRih last month before they ended up getting into a heated argument that had the singer end their short-lived romance for the second time.
Drake being the private guy that he is wasn’t going to tell Ellen and the audience all of that so he kept it all good by simply saying he has a lot of love for her but he’s definitely single.
Other pics then showed up such as Tyra Banks, Nicki Minaj, and Kat Dennings who Drizzy says is one of the girls he has had a longtime crush on, before adding that they’ve never dated other than having dinner together.
Drake’s latest album Nothing Was The Same drops in stores in just four days (24th September) so this awkward interview with Ellen will give him a lot of publicity.
As hard as it was to watch, it was a win-win situation for both of them: Ellen gets the ratings, Drake gets the high album sales. Check out the video below, it’s so cringe-worthy. Ha.
