Drake Finally Posted A Picture Of His Son & It’s A Huge Deal

The coronavirus pandemic has affected pretty much everything, and you don’t need me to tell you that. But aside from the most serious things happening in the world right now, one of the most interesting effects of all this alone time is that celebrities who normally keep things private are coming out of the woodwork on social media. Of course, there are the ones making mediocre TikToks and doing concerts on Instagram Live, but some are giving us a more intimate look at their lives than we would ever get normally. In particular, Drake took this opportunity to post photos of his son for the first time ever.

While Drake posts regularly on Instagram, his posts are usually either promo or like, paparazzi pics of him walking somewhere with an entourage. But this post is very different. Drake’s son, Adonis, was born in 2017, and this is the first time we’re actually getting to see him. The background 0n Drake and his son is actually pretty messy, which is part of the reason why this post is getting so much attention. Basically, Adonis’ mother is a French woman named Sophie Brussaux, who used to do adult films. Obviously, she and Drake had some kind of relationship in the past, but they were never, like, together. Adonis was born in October of 2017, and for months after that, there were rumors that Drake was his father, but he never publicly commented on it.

Then, in May 2018, Pusha T dropped “The Story of Adidon,” a diss track aimed squarely at Drake, in which he accused him of being a deadbeat dad to his son, and called him out for allegedly planning to reveal his son as part of an Adidas collab, saying “Adonis is your son, and he deserves more than an Adidas press run.” In the song, Pusha T also made claims about Drake’s blackness and his relationship with his father, cutting deep to some of Drake’s most personal issues. It was a pretty brutal diss, and Drake had no choice but to respond. That summer, he admitted on his album Scorpion that “the kid is mine.”

Drake has definitely been an active father figure to his son since then, but obviously we haven’t gotten to see them together until now. Drake’s Instagram post has several photos of Adonis, including my favorite one, of him in a toy Range Rover with a teddy bear that’s bigger than he is. This kid is seriously adorable, and I’m glad Drake finally decided to show him off.

What is most important for you right now is to connect to your own inner light. This will create the biggest opening of all. Trust that you have all of the power within to make this happen, and in order to do that connect to the people and things that bring you a lot of joy. When the mind starts to move into overthinking or fear, shift your attention right away to something bright. It doesn’t matter what has happened in the past or what is happening around us now, you can always make the choice to break free of the wheel of suffering and panic and open up to your own light. We are powerful manifestors , so once you make the choice in the moment to shift your awareness to something good, it will show you in your reality. Be conscious, especially right now of fears coming in from others, and recognize that not everything should be held by you. Laughter is your best medicine, but tears can also be a powerful release. Let go of any judgment you may have around that. Remember that you are never alone, and if you need to be reminded of that ask for support and it will show up. Everything comes down to intention, and even though there are conflicting energies circling around us you must KNOW…It will rebuild. But in order for that to happen, you have to do exactly that. Trust. You have the biggest heart and that is your greatest gift. It’s impossible to always control your surroundings, but when you shift the focus to how you want to feel, everything will conspire to assist you. I love and miss my beautiful family and friends and I can’t wait for the joyful day when we are all able to reunite. Until then please keep your lights on. 🤍

To go with the photos, Drake shared a caption that I can only describe as a generous helping of word salad, which I think is supposed to be an open letter to his son? Maybe? I don’t know. He says it’s important right now to “connect to your own inner light” and that “you have all the power within to make this happen.” Okay, so I have no idea what “this” is, but I guess we could all stand to focus on positivity right now.

The next part is about how “you can always make the choice to break free of the wheel of suffering,” which I’m not sure I really agree with, but whatever, Drake is way more successful than me. The whole thing mostly boils down to focusing on positive energy and trusting that things will turn out okay in the end. Drizzy assures us that “when you shift the focus to how you want to feel, everything will conspire to assist you.” Great, so I’ll just throw out there that I *want to feel* like a billionaire—universe, do your thing! As one of the most cynical people in the world, this was a tough caption for me to get through, but it feels very on-brand for Drake.

I’m already imagining the post-quarantine Drake song that’s going to come out of this, and I can already tell it’s going to be a sad boy banger. He’ll definitely include some version of the line “laughter is your best medicine, but tears can also be a powerful release”, calling it now. If Drake gets his son to say something on the track, that sh*t will go number-one for sure.

At the end of the caption, Drake says he loves and misses his “beautiful family and friends,” and can’t wait to reunite. Okay, so for all the nonsense that I just broke down above, I feel like the intent of this post is really sweet, and I’m not mad about it. Drake’s personal life hasn’t always been a smooth ride, but it’s clear that he loves his son a lot, and all of a sudden I’m crying. It’s definitely the seasonal allergies, it’s fine.

So if you’re feeling down about everything that’s going on right now, maybe try talking Drake’s advice and channeling some positive energy. Sadly, it probably won’t make you rich and famous, but your anxiety might chill out a little. But in addition to connecting with your inner light, make sure you’re social distancing and washing your hands—all the positive vibes in the world don’t take the place of good hygiene.

Celebrities Who Are Failing At This Whole Social Distancing Thing

Hello, friends. Today is day seven of my isolation. I have watched the entirety of the new series The Stranger on Netflix. I have finished two novels and begun a seven-book YA fantasy series. I cannot remember my last shower or my last vegetable. This is life in quarantine. Sorry, I usually only get this dramatic in my nightly diary entry, but we are in strange times. I’m sure many of you are experiencing the same thing as me, except with slightly more fresh air and slightly less pizza (I totally believe you!). But you know who apparently hasn’t heard about this global pandemic that the rest of us are doing our best to slow down? Celebrities! Of course, there are the celebrities that are trying to help, and the celebrities that are embarrassing themselves on social media, but there are also the ones that apparently haven’t heard that we need to be responsible citizens and practice social distancing, self-isolation, and quarantine. Shall we take a look at the celebrities whom history books will deem responsible for the spread of coronavirus?

Look, guys. I know the pheromones you’re emitting right now are like, really strong, but so is the coronavirus, so I had really hoped that for the sake of humanity you would have been able to keep it in your pants. But alas, once again, I expected too much out of people that signed up for a reality dating show just so that they’d never have to work a real job again. 

A few days ago, Tyler picked Hannah up at the airport and on Tuesday (Tuesday!!!!!) they were out on the beach with a group of friends, playing volleyball, and definitely getting closer than the recommended six feet. I hope your date was so cute guys, back here in the tristate area we’d love to be doing that too if only we weren’t busy dying! And, it gets worse. They finally decided to go inside, but it’s not just the two of them. Hannah joined TikTok and posted this video of her “quarantine crew” at the pool, which includes EIGHT PEOPLE, clearly not social distancing or keeping their gathering small to the tune of “Savage.” Savage indeed, Hannah and Tyler. SAVAGE INDEED.

life is a race and the grim reaper catches up…till then glasses up

A post shared by champagnepapi (@champagnepapi) on

Last week, the NBA suspended their season due to coronavirus. Have you ever seen that in your lifetime? I certainly haven’t, and I talk about how old I am more often than Jessica from Love is Blind. So, naturally, maybe you wouldn’t want to hang out with someone whose job had been unprecedentedly shut down due to the invasion of a global pandemic. Not the case for Drake! He decided to hang out with Kevin Durant at the Nice Guy in West Hollywood. I guess even when people are dying, there’s champagne to be drunk and women to be hit on! Someone’s gotta do it! (They don’t.) Thankfully, once Durant tested positive, Drake decided to do the right thing and self-isolate. But don’t feel bad for the King of Toronto, because while you’re rolling around on a yoga mat on your dirty floor trying to follow an online Barre Method class (hypothetically!), Drake is working out on his home basketball court. Can I quarantine there?


This past Saturday, the day my city ordered all restaurants, bars, daycares, and gyms closed and I ran to the grocery store in a panic, Scheana invited all her friends to party in Palm Springs. Here’s the exact quote: “Any of my friends working from home this week should come join me for a Palm Springs quarantine!” the 34-year-old reality TV personality tweeted on Saturday, March 14. “I will continue to live my life in Palm Springs or MDR w my friends and not live it in complete isolation or fear. Simple as that. Call me ‘ignorant’ but I’m not gonna stop living!” Okay Scheana, you’re ignorant. What? You told me to! This whole season of VPR Scheana has been talking about freezing her eggs, but now I’m wondering if she should be allowed to procreate?

I will continue to live my life in Palm Springs or MDR w my friends and not live it in complete isolation or fear. Simple as that. Call me “ignorant” but I’m not gonna stop living!

— 🏳️‍🌈Scheana (@scheana) March 14, 2020

Naturally, people jumped on Scheana’s tweet, basically calling her an idiot, which she kind of is, sorry. Her excuse? She just came back from a work trip, doesn’t watch the news (!!!) and wasn’t fully up to date on coronavirus. Scheana, let me tell you what the cop told me when he pulled me over for going 52 in a 25: ignorance is not an excuse! Reread your manual!

And finally, we arrive at someone so out of touch, he didn’t even know that we were in the middle of a global medical crisis. That’s right, Jared Leto claims he was on a “silent meditation” with no access to his phone for the past 12 days. First of all, ew. Second of all, were you really, Jared?? Because, as someone pointed out in the comments, he still managed to post pictures of himself in Gucci T-shirts during that time. And sure, his team could have posted for him, but did a celebrity really go on a trip where there was no possible way to get in touch with him? What if they decided they wanted him to play the Joker again?!! Although, if you told me that Jared thought he could communicate with his team members by cutting off a lock of his hair, sprinkling it over a fire that he built himself, spinning around three times and singing exactly one half of the song “Kumbaya”, I would believe that. So maybe he really did go into the desert without a phone. Regardless, I hope you enjoyed possibly spreading coronavirus on your rich people trip, Jared!

On Tuesday, after millions of us were already locked inside, The Hobbit and Avengers star Evangeline Lilly was totally unbothered. She posted that she had just dropped her kids off at gymnastics camp—but don’t worry, they washed their hands first! She said that she values “freedom over life,” which sounds like something she wouldn’t be saying if she knew someone dying because of a ventilator shortage. Obviously, freedom is important, but right now we have the freedom to make good choices, and we should all be exercising it!

And those are some of the celebrities that decided they didn’t need to help us flatten the curve. I hope they all enjoyed their time coughing on each other, while the rest of us just try and remember our work laptop password. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to take a conference call from my bed. Stay safe, friends!

Are Kylie And Drake A Thing? An Investigation

It’s been over a month since we first found out about Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott’s breakup, and I’m finally ready to admit that it’s probably real. Even though I was highly skeptical about the timing of the split with Travis’ new song, things between them have been pretty quiet lately. It seems like they’re still on good terms when it comes to parenting Stormi, but that’s all that’s going on. Fine, I’ll accept that I was wrong, and the breakup wasn’t just a publicity stunt.

But now that the dust has settled from Kylie’s split with Travis, there are already lots of rumors about who she is seeing these days, and uh, they’re saying it’s Drake. That’s right, Kylie Jenner has been spending time with Champagne Papi himself, and I really don’t know how to feel about it. On one hand, this isn’t that shocking, because Drake has known the Kardashian-Jenner family for a long time, and he’s obviously Kylie’s type because he is a rapper. But on the other hand, why the f*ck would Drake, who has worked with Travis Scott in the past, want to start seeing Kylie just weeks after she broke up with his friend?! That seems messy, even by these people’s standards.

But let’s back up a little, because we don’t know for sure that anything is really going on here. There are a lot of contradicting sources happening here, so let’s go through what’s being reported on both sides. The one thing that’s not in question at all is what kicked off these rumors: Kylie attending Drake’s birthday party. The party took place in Hollywood a couple weeks ago, and at the time it was mostly notable because Adele was there looking extremely hot. But Kylie was there too, and she also attended his Halloween party last week, where, according to a People source, she stayed “super late.”

People spoke to at least three sources about the pair, with one confirming that Kylie and Drake “have been spending time together recently,” and adding that “They’ve been friends for a long time and Drake is very close to the family.” This we already knew, and both Kylie and Kendall attended Drake’s New Year’s party at the beginning this year. But another People source claimed that things have change, saying that they’ve been seeing each other “romantically” since Kylie’s split with Travis last month. And I go half a year in between dates…

But wait! There are a bunch of anonymous sources here, and they’re not all in agreement over what’s actually going on. One source told People that Kylie and Drake are “just friends,” and a second also denied that they’re dating. So basically, there are way too many anonymous sources talking about this, and no one knows what’s actually happening. We know that Kylie and Drake are friends, and it seems pretty certain that they’ve been hanging out recently, but this could be platonic, a full-blown relationship, or basically anywhere in between.

Whatever is happening, Us Weekly spoke to yet another anonymous source, who commented on Travis’ feelings about this. When asked about the Drake situation, the source said, “Travis harbors no ill will to any of Kylie’s friends,” which is pretty vague, but okay. If Travis was actually super upset about this, he probably wouldn’t say anything about it, and this source doesn’t confirm things one way or the other.

Honestly, I would be surprised if Kylie and Drake are anything more than friends with benefits, but you never know what crazy sh*t is going to happen with this family. I mean, there was a time when it seemed like a crazy rumor that Kim Kardashian might be dating Kanye West, and now they’re married with four kids. You truly never know with these people. For now, I guess we’ll just enjoy what the 750 anonymous sources have to say, and try to make some sense of things. I’m sure Kris Jenner is working overtime leaking information to all of these press outlets, making sure that we have absolutely no idea what’s going on. Can’t wait to see the manufactured real truth five months from now on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Who Is Rihanna’s Boyfriend? What We Know About Her Saudi Billionaire

Rihanna is a total badass, and it seems like men have always had a tough time keeping up with her. Of course, there was her nightmare situation with Chris Brown, who somehow still isn’t canceled a decade later. Since then, Rih has spent time with rappers and athletes, but for the past couple years, she’s been focused on a billionaire businessman. Honestly, that’s the type of energy I need in my life. She’s officially the world’s richest female musician, and she has a man with money to match. Who is Rihanna’s boyfriend, and how long have they been a thing? Here’s what we know.

To start, his name is Hassan Jameel, and did I mention he’s a billionaire? He’s from Saudi Arabia, where his family owns Abdul Latif Jameel, one of the largest multi-faceted companies in the country. The company is active in over 30 countries, and their biggest thing is owning the distribution rights to Toyota cars in like, most of the Arab world. Casual. The company was founded by Hassan’s grandfather, and he currently serves as the Deputy President and Vice Chairman of Saudi Arabia operations. Sound a little entry level, but I guess he’s doing okay.

A post shared by FENTY JAMEEL ? (@fentyxjameel) on

Now that we’ve addressed the “who is Rihanna’s boyfriend” issue, let’s get to the “WHEN DID THIS BECOME A THING???” issue. If you’re a close follower of Rihanna’s personal life, you’ve probably known about Hassan for a while, because he and Bad Gal have actually been together since 2017. The first time they were ever seen together was New Year’s Eve in 2016, shortly after Drake had professed his love for Rihanna in one of the cringiest moments ever captured on video.

In April 2017 they were seen together in Tokyo, but at this point Hassan was still a mystery man. Tokyo makes perfect sense, because Hassan went to college there and speaks fluent Japanese, due to his family’s business with Toyota. (If you fell asleep all those times your dad was talking about cars, Toyota is a Japanese company.) That summer, Rihanna’s dad told a tabloid that she had recently told him about her new boyfriend, and that “he’s going to have to buckle up.” Idk why Rihanna’s dad is out here talking to tabloids about his daughter, but I’m here for the dramz.

Things seemed good for the next year or so, until an apparent split last June. According to a source, they were good together, but Rihanna “gets tired of men sometimes.” Girl, SAME.

Live footage of Rihanna/me being tired of men:

But in another move that seems like something I would do (have done), Rihanna got back with Hassan the next month. Since then, they’ve been going strong, and right now they’re on vacation together in Italy. Rihanna has been spending most of her time in Europe recently, and I have a feeling it’s for both business and personal reasons. She told Magazine that she moved to London earlier this year, which makes sense for her Paris-based fashion brand, but also because Hassan spends a lot of time there.

A post shared by Gheir.com (@gheir) on

I don’t know how serious they are, but I’m all of a sudden very into this relationship. In approximately 30 minutes, I’ve gone from “lol who is Rihanna’s boyfriend” to wondering how soon they’re going to get married. If Rihanna’s not giving us a new album, I would settle for some stunning wedding photos. It’s been approximately 12 hours since Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk broke up, but this relationship is already clearing my skin and giving me hope for the future.

Congrats to Rihanna on bagging a billionaire, but bigger congrats to Hassan Jameel on bagging f*cking Rihanna. Meanwhile, I’ll let you know if my latest app guy ever decides to message me back. It’s not looking great over here!

Here’s Why Your Favorite Artists Boycotted the 2019 Grammys

Last night, the 61st Annual Grammy Awards took place, hosted by Alicia Keys. What was supposed to be the biggest night in music history actually turned out to be more like that one girl’s Bat Mitzvah that no one went to besides the people her parents paid to go to it. That’s because much like the NFL, the Recording Academy has gotten more and more controversial, facing accusations of sexism and racism, so some people decided to sit out. Don’t we just love the drama?


Me texting 2 guys at the same time #grammys pic.twitter.com/Gvh5QOAjiJ

— Betches (@betchesluvthis) February 11, 2019

So Why Do People Boycott?

The most notable people to boycott are the artists who feel most affected to it, rightfully so. Hip-hop artists are frequently used as promotional bait for the award ceremony, mainly as a way to get a younger and passionate demographic to tune into the award ceremony live so the Recording Academy can charge cat food companies even more money to run their ads during the commercial breaks.This is America. Which is why it’s no surprise that artists like Jay-Z, Beyonce, and Kendrick Lamar usually nab multiple nominations yet receive no love when it comes to the actual decision making. I’m sorry, but who in their right mind actually believes that 24K Magic is better album than Damn. or 4:44 besides wedding DJs?

Who Sat Out This Year?

This year, Childish Gambino, who won both Song of the Year and Record of the Year (the first rap win in either categories) chose not to show up at all. Kendrick Lamar and Drake also declined a performance slot and were expected not to show up until Drake I guess decided to Uber to the ceremony to pick up his trophy. He then basically give a Cady Heron-level speech about how fans are a better reflection of your success than a Grammy. It’s just plastic, after all. They quickly cut him off, but that’s fine, he probably had to go to In-N-Out with Millie Bobby Brown. (Are they still friends? What’s happening there?)

What the Recording Academy lacks in respect of people of color, they make up for in… also lacking respect for their female performers. Last year, Lorde’s Melodrama (an album whose lyrics I still drunk text exes with) was nominated for Album of The Year—the only female in the category. Not only was she the only female up for the nights biggest prize, but she was the only nominee not asked to perform during the ceremony; instead asked to just contribute in a tribute medley. For those unfamiliar with the award ceremony, that’s basically like being in the group chat about brunch and only being asked to meet at the McDonald’s you go to after getting so drunk at brunch you need another meal. A nice gesture, but not fair at all.

The Grammys also came under major fire when Recording Academy president Neil Portnow said that female artists need to “step up” if they want to be considered for awards. So…Beyoncé, Cardi, Nicki, Taylor, and Ari…need to step up? Got it. Portnow’s words were clearly not forgotten considering Dua Lipa subtly referenced the line, saying, “I guess we really stepped up this year” during her acceptance speech for best new artist. Why do I feel like it’s the Grammys that stepped up, and not the other way around?

But Where Was Ariana Grande?

While the Grammys did nominate fifteen women for the big four categories this year as opposed to last year’s six, it seems the Academy still hasn’t learned all their lessons. Ariana Grande—who was expected to (and ultimately did) win her first Grammy last night—was in talks to perform but backed out. Ken Ehrlich, long-time producer for the Grammys, wanted to tell her what songs to sing, because there’s nothing old rich guys love more to do than telling talented women how to do their jobs. I guess we didn’t get the theme of Ariana’s new album because uh, thank u, next to that gesture. This f*ck up cost them truly the biggest star in the world right now from performing on their stage, which they basically promised since the nominees were announced. This is basically like promising to bring Grey Goose to the pregame and you show up with Everclear, if that Everclear was named Bebe Rexha.

mhmmm here it is ! “too late for her to pull something together……” pic.twitter.com/YwuBOUkZjr

Did They Do Better This Year?

Oh, and if you think the Grammy’s didn’t want to try and find another way to piss people off, you’re wrong, because they had J.Lo as the performer to honor Motown…during Black History Month…with Janelle Monáe sitting right there. I’m not sure why we still let old white men choose anything other than what flavor of tapioca pudding they want for lunch at this point. This decision clearly left fans of Motown angry, because as Gaga would say, there are about a hundred people in that room…who are talented singers of color that could have performed that medley. Actually, maybe not one-hundred, because most of them boycotted the show to pinpoint its racism anyway.

We’ll see what the Grammys decide to bring next year: will they learn from their mistakes, or will they ask Carrie Underwood to honor Ray Charles? Only time and more tweets from Ariana Grande will tell.

Heads up, you need to keep up with the news. It’s not cute anymore. That’s why we’ve created a 5x weekly newsletter called The ‘Sup that will explain all the news of the week in a hilarious af way. Because if we weren’t laughing, we’d be crying. Sign up for The ‘Sup now!

5 Celebs Who Will Be Noticeably Absent From The Grammys This Year

This Sunday is the 61st annual Grammys, otherwise known as white privilege in action “Music’s biggest night.” That’s a nice tagline, but this year especially, I’m not sure it’s true. That’s because some of the biggest stars in music won’t even be there. Umm, come again? While confirmed performers for the 61st annual Grammys include Cardi B, Travis Scott, and Shawn Mendes, the roster falls short of what you might expect. First of all, many of our favorite artists aren’t performing (and we’ll get to who in a minute). What’s worse, some of the most popular artists of the year got snubbed in the major categories, so they’re not even wasting their time to show up at all. Honestly, relatable. Others have different excuses, but either way, the Grammys will be a little lacking in star power this year. Here’s who you won’t be seeing on the Grammys red carpet this year.

Ariana Grande

Earlier this week, Ariana Grande made big news when she pulled out of the performance roster for the 61st annual Grammys. She wanted to perform “7 rings,” but the producers said she could only do it in a medley with another song of their choosing. Ari wasn’t happy about this, so she decided to not do the show. This is really not great for the Grammys, especially considering they’ve been using Ariana’s face on billboards to advertise the show. Awkwardddd. Honestly, Ariana Grande is the biggest star in the world right now, so they should have just let her do literally whatever she wants. You really can’t discuss music in 2018 without spending at least 5 minutes on “thank u, next”.

Bradley Cooper

Despite “Shallow” being nominated for four Grammy awards, Bradley Cooper won’t be in attendance. Instead, he’ll be in London at the British Academy Film Awards, or BAFTAs, which are basically the British version of the Oscars. This makes sense, because A Star Is Born is nominated for seven awards, and Bradley is up for both Best Actor and Best Director. It seems like a pretty big scheduling f*ckup that both of these award shows are on the same night, but I guess there’s usually not much overlap in the nominees. Shockingly, Lady Gaga is separating herself from Bradley Cooper for a night, as she will be performing at the Grammys. There can be 100 people in a room, but what happens when the one person who believes in you isn’t one of them?

Taylor Swift

Apparently the BAFTAs are this year’s hottest excuse for missing the Grammys this year, because Taylor Swift is going to be across the pond too. After missing out on nominations in the major Grammy categories this year, even though it feels like Reputation came out three years ago, Taylor decided to go to the BAFTAs with her man Joe Alwyn instead. This is actually kind of a big deal, considering how hard the Grammys have kissed Taylor’s ass in the past. Also, she and Joe have rarely appeared in public before, so she’s sending a message that things are serious between them. I won’t pretend I’m sad about her absence, but I am sad that I won’t get another chance to roast Reputation. Alexa, play “Look What You Made Me Do”.

Taylor Swift

Nicki Minaj

Cardi B is nominated for five awards at this year’s Grammys, but her biggest rival, Nicki Minaj, didn’t manage to get a single one. That’s gotta hurt. Nicki might not be at the top of her game right now, but she did release a new album in August, so this snub had to feel like a slap in the face. Or, more accurately, a shoe to the head. Nicki and Cardi seem to have cooled their feud in the last couple months, but if Cardi walks away a big winner on Sunday night, I have a feeling that Nicki Minaj will have a hard time resisting the urge to tweet. Hold onto your Louboutins, because this could get interesting.


So far this year, we haven’t heard anything about whether Drake is going to the Grammys. Based on his seven nominations, you’d think he’d be first on the list, but he actually hasn’t attended the Grammys since 2013. He’s skipped out on four years when he was nominated for multiple awards, including two years ago, when “Hotline Bling” won two awards. In the past, he’s been openly critical about the Grammys’ treatment of rap artists, including not showing the hip-hop categories on the TV broadcast, so his absence makes sense. Drake could decide at the last minute to show up this weekend, but I wouldn’t put money on it. I feel like 2019 is not the year anybody is giving up on the issues they care about.

With no nominations in major categories this year, other stars likely to skip this year’s Grammys include Beyoncé and Jay-Z and Kanye West. Honestly, why would Kanye even want to go if he wouldn’t get the chance to mess with Taylor Swift? And Beyoncé’s joint album with Jay-Z only got nominated in two minor categories, so it’s probably not even worth them getting a babysitter. Hopefully the Grammys will still be an exciting show, but it’s not looking great. Cardi B and Lady Gaga, please don’t let us down. If nothing else, at least Kylie Jenner might be there to cheer on Travis Scott? Wow, this is bleak.

It Sure Looks Like Bella Hadid & The Weeknd Are Back Together

Well guys, it happened again. As much as I try to not give a shit about what the Hadid family is up to, I just do. I fucking care. And that’s why, when Bella Hadid posted an Instagram story at The Weeknd’s house the other day, I felt like my months of waiting had finally paid off. I promise I have a social life, but this shit is important.

In recent months, there have been lots of warning signs about Bella and Abel (I can call him that because he’s a close personal friend) getting back together, so let’s recap. It all started when people reported they were seen making out at Coachella, but Bella claimed it wasn’t her. Whatever, I’m not going to call her a liar. Also at Coachella, The Weeknd was seen hanging out with Justin Bieber’s ex Chantel Jeffries, and Bella Hadid was flirting with rapper Kyle, so it’s clear that things weren’t too serious, whether or not they were making out. Ah Coachella, so many horny people in the desert, so little time.

After Coachella, they were next seen hanging out at the Cannes Film Festival, because of course. Both of them are the type of famous person who have no true reason to be in Cannes, but I’m also 0% surprised that either of them were there. Why is this not my life? They were spotted making out again at a Cannes party, and then they hung out again the next day.

Live footage of Bella stringing The Weeknd along with little to no commitment:

Fast forward to last week, when Drake dropped his new album Scorpion. The album is ab0ut four hours long, but the only song I really care about is “Finesse,” which has nothing to do with Bruno Mars or Cardi B, but instead contains lyrics that really seem like they’re about Bella Hadid. Apparently there have been casual rumors that she and Drake were a thing, but no one really had any evidence. On the song, Drake says “Should I do New York/I can’t decide/Fashion Week is more your thing than mine/You and your sister/Too hot to handle.” Literally who could that be about besides Bella? However, on Twitter, Bella responded to a tweet saying that she’s never slept with Drake.

While her emoji choices are a little concerning, I pretty much believe her when she says she’s never slept with Drake. That doesn’t mean they’ve never made out or something like that, but they’re probably not a legit couple. We know this because…

Bella was hanging out with The Weeknd all weekend long. In my mind, that’s when things really started to solidify. On Saturday, Bella posted this Instagram story of The Weeknd’s house, and the photo even has a timestamp that shows it’s current.

This photo looks like a still from a horror movie, which seems like the right aesthetic for this couple. If you look closely, The Weeknd is actually standing on the balcony in the distance, looking like he is absolutely going to murder some people with an axe. But back to the important part. Bella Hadid was hanging out at The Weeknd’s house as recently as three days ago. And before anyone is like “maybe they’re just friends again, let them be happy,” they dated for two years, and have recently been seen making out in public. She’s not at his house to do pedicures and lounge by the pool. Grow the fuck up.

On Sunday, they were seen together again, going out to dinner in Beverly Hills. A witness said that the pair were “snuggled in the back corner” of Matsuhisa. What is with these celebrities not just making out in the comfort of their own homes? This is only slightly less upsetting than Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin making out in literally every park in New York City. GET A ROOM, PEOPLE.

So for now, it seems very likely = that Bella and The Weeknd are an item again. I don’t know how serious things are as of right now, but they’re definitely enjoying each other’s company. Meanwhile, Drake is stuck with a random baby, and he doesn’t even get to sleep with Bella. The Weeknd is definitely winning right now. Now I just Zayn and Gigi to get back together, and my 2016 Hadid Dream Team will be complete once again.

Why Did Drake Get A Giant Tattoo Of Another Rapper’s Face?

Drake, aka the nicest fanboy in rap, has taken his reputation as hip-hop’s over-eager bar mitzvah boy to the next level with his latest tattoo. I mean, it’s honestly hard to think of a member of the hip hop community who Drake is not low-key obsessed with. Nicki, Rihanna, Kanye (in a love-hate sort of way), the list goes on and on. While we have no problem with a light bromance here and there, Drake has officially taken his unholy obsession relationship with Lil Wayne to the next level. No, I don’t mean that they’re hooking up with each other (though that would be kind of fun, wouldn’t it?), I’m talking about the fact that Drake got a giant tattoo of Wayne on his arm. Which is like…more than a little strange. I mean, this is some Kylie & Tyga shit for sure. Don’t rappers usually reserve the tattoo memorials for people in their life who has died? As far as I know, Wayne, despite being a literal walking bottle of cough syrup, is still alive. I mean, I get that Wayne was a huge influence for Drake, but this seems a little extreme for friendship. Like, I love my besties, but I’m not going to get any of them tatted on my body anytime soon. Unless one of them gets married – anything can happen at a bachelorette. 

Apparently, Drake got the tattoo a few months ago and immediately showed it to Wayne for approval, but he didn’t reveal it publicly until he hosted an event this weekend in a sleeveless basketball jersey, kind of like girls who wait until prom to reveal that they’re pregnant.

Drake is really great at simultaneously being the best and the worst, and this is one of his most questionable decisions. Wayne has long been a mentor to Drake, all the way back to when he signed him to his label in 2009. When Lil Wayne first saw it, he was apparently “beyond floored and honored, since loyalty’s a big deal with him.” Loyalty is great and all, but yeah, we’re still never going to get the Tito’s Vodka logo tattooed on our arm. 

So yeah, we’re not sure how we feel about Drake’s latest ink, but we’re pretty sure we hate it. Nope, we’re positive we hate it. 100% positive. Sorry Drake, but you might need to wear sleeves from right now. You’ll live.
