For Drake’s appearance on Chelsea Lately last night (Sept. 23), the rapper brought a candle to set the mood and a variety of toothbrushes–to help with the soul cleansing, of course–and one of his Nothing Was The Same t-shirts for the hostess. He wanted to get as intimate as possible.
The two talked about his baby photo, which also is the cover of his new album and the ladies in his life.
First it was all about Nicki Minaj, who does not appear on the record. “I kind of took control on this album,” Drake explained. “I wanted to tell my story as much as possible and do as many as the verses, just myself. I felt like I had a lot to say.”
Drake reassured the crowd that he was very fond of Ms. Minaj, who he does talk about on NWTS, and also that he was no longer “penetrating” Rihanna. Chelsea Handler’s words, not ours.
