The Word: Did Drake skip the BET awards to avoid Chris Brown?
Drake was a no-show at last night’s BET Awards, despite being nominated for a whopping 12 trophies. What could induce someone to skip a party where people were going to say nice things about him all night?
He had a previous engagement on the high road.
Drake and Chris Brown can’t stand each other, and according to Hollywood Life, Drake skipped the event to keep their feud from flaring up again. “The reason Drake isn’t [at the BET Awards] is 100 percent all about Chris Brown,” a source said.
Good for Drake for trying to be the mature one. This is one feud where it’s hard to root for them to make peace, though. Who would want to be on good terms with Chris Brown?
Despite his looks, talent, sex appeal, tons of cash and being known via just one name — a la Cher —Drake (Aubrey Drake Graham) isn’t giving it up for just any old hussy who comes along.
“You know the way fighters don’t f— before the fight? Sometimes I feel like I’m so focused on training my body and getting my mind right to create this album that sex isn’t one of my main priorities,” the rapper tells GQ in the July issue about his forthcoming album “Nothing Was The Same.” “If someone is around that I know and trust, I’m down. But I’m not going to end up with some stranger at this party.”
