Nicki Minaj, Drake get married (or don't)
Nicki Minaj may have been in Tampa Saturday for Last Damn Show, but the real news was in cyberspace. Apparently she and Drake got their cyberselves married and divorced, all in the course of two days. That's a record even for the music world.
On Friday the hip-hop (maybe more than) friends took to their Twitter accounts to announce the unbelievable. "U scurred? @drakkardnoir u ready to make the announcement or wha?" Minaj said via to her pal on her Twitter account, @NICKIMINAJ. Drake responded with, "@nickiminaj Baby I am never scared. PROUD is more the word I would use." Then he tweeted: "Please refer to @nickiminaj as Mrs. Aubrey Drake Graham and dont stare at her too long. She's finally mine. :)"
Well, that sure got the gums flapping in the hip-hop world. Everyone spazzed out, with one fervent follower even dubbing the pair "Dricki" before both artists' reps denied the rumors. Then Barbie herself shot the whole thing down just hours before her brief appearance at the St. Pete Times Forum.
"Dear Barbz, My husband Drake and I have decided to have our marriage annulled. We'll maintain joint custody. Luv, HB," Minaj tweeted. Custody of whom? "All our SONS," she said. Great, the hip-hop world was turned upside over the weekend by an online practical joke. Word is Nicki didn't even hit any of the after-parties for people to confirm the news. If this is any indication what Pink Friday will be like, we'll be chasing plenty of rumors from now on.
