Drake Shoots His Shot At Issa Rae After The Golden Globes And She Spent The Rest Of The Night Calling Him, ‘Zaddy’
After practically dedicating her entire season of HBO’s Insecure to Drake, it’s no secret that Issa Rae has a thing for the Champagne Papi himself. The first time they met, she sat in silence and smelled him for several minutes remarking later to Andy Cohen that Drake smelled like “sensitivity.”
Her affinity towards the entertainer would easily lead anyone to believe that if Drake ever asked her out on a date, then Issa Rae would respond with a resounding, “yes.” But E! News reported a story to the contrary saying that she turned him down flat. That’s not exactly how it all went down.
An onlooker told E! that Drake and Issa Rae were engaging one another after the 2018 Golden Globes ceremony ended. The Best Actress nominee and her girls were out enjoying the after-party scene when Drake approached her with a private invitation of sorts. He reportedly broke away from his entourage to ask her if she wanted to come to the Netflix after party where he was going to be a guest DJ. Issa Rae was said to have declined the invite and then just walked away.
Another supposed insider said that Drake would love to take Issa Rae out and wasn’t surprised that he took his shot.
“He thinks Issa Rae is beautiful and talented,” the source said. “He would like to take her on a date if he was given the opportunity. He talks highly of her talents to people.”
Well, as it turns out, Issa Rae did take Drake up on his offer after all. She shared a video of herself and her girls fanning out while they watched drake spin. they were screaming and Issa even called him “Zaddy.” In a separate video, Issa Rae provided a little subdued feedback on his performance.
“He was a phenomenal DJ,” Issa Rae said. “He played all the correct tracks. The playlist was simply correct, so I’m pleased.”
When Issa Rae saw the E! tweet referencing their story alleging her rejection of the music superstar, she responded Thursday evening confirming that she was, in fact, on her “worst behavior.” She offered a more appropriate headline for the piece:
“Obsessed Fan Who Dedicated Entire Season to Artist Continues to Shamelessly Fangirl When She Sees Him at Party Later.”
Looks like Aubrey is still in the game, y’all…
