Drake and Chris Brown hate each other. They’re like oil and water – they do not mix under any circumstances, and it’s all Rihanna’s fault (isn’t it always?). Well, apparently they’ve decided to let bygones be bygones and are now getting all pally at the club or something after Def Jam boss Abou Thiam brought them together. Things got so friendly, that they were apparently “hugging and drinking” together? I mean, I dunno.
From The New York Post:
The musicians — who got into an epic fracas at Soho nightclub W.I.P. in 2012 — hugged it out at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas over the weekend. Sources tell us Drake and his crew came to the music fest on Friday specifically to watch Brown’s performance.
“Drake came on Friday with his whole crew, and watched Chris’ entire set,” we’re told.
After Brown came off stage, a spy told us: “They were backstage hugging and drinking.” We’re told the reunion went so well, the two even talked about creating some tracks together.
Sources tell us the mediator of the reunion was Def Jam music exec Abou Thiam — who’s one of Brown’s managers and a brother of rapper Akon. We’re told Thiam is “very friendly with Drake, and worked to try and get him and Chris together to put their differences aside.”
I guess that would be nice or whatever, if it weren’t for the fact that I would think any decent human being would have “differences” with Chris Brown since he’s a homophobic, misogynistic woman beater. That’s not really a hatchet that can be buried, in my book. Of course, this could be total bullshit – after all, Drake has a verse in one of his songs on the new album (I’m embarrassingly in love with it) about how he’s not concerned when he sees him in the club because he can’t match Drake’s own energy and isn’t who he pretends to be. Doesn’t sound like friendship material to me, but I suppose stranger things have happened.
I just want better for Drake and his sensitive spirit. Stay away from Chris Brown!
