Some of you Heatworld Citizens might remember the scuffle between rappers Chris Brown and Drake just a few weeks ago. The pair were both at attendance in New York’s celeb nightclub W.i.P when the incident took place, but have remained relatively quiet on the matter ever since.
So, step forward outspoken songstress Nicki Minaj! Nicki has been a friend of Drake ever since the paired began recording duets for their respective albums, and when Nicki was asked by that cheeky chappy, DJ Tim Westwood what she thought of the whole debacle, Nicki wasn’t afraid to speak her mind, revealing,
“I don't approve of talented people doing things that aren't conducive to an amazing career…I spoke to Drake, and I told him from the bottom of my heart how I felt. I'm like, 'Baby, you are a superstar, and I need you to realize that.' "
Nicki then went on to say that the rapper was innocent, and she revealed that she had offered him some advice he’d once given to her,
"He did nothing wrong, of course. Rumors are rumors, and that's what it is…Sometimes, you just need to go to bed. Go to the hotel and have an early nap. There's nothing wrong with that."
After the scuffle Chris tweeted an image of his visibly cut chin, and other bystanders were allegedly also harmed during the reported fight.
The rappers have never seen eye-to-eye, which may have something to do with the fact that Drake briefly dated Chris’s ex Rihanna and is, on occasion, still linked to the star.
