Canadian rapper Drake seems far too subdued when he's seen in the company of women such as Bajan singer Rihanna. If we didn't know any better, we'd think he hated RiRi. There's no question that Drake gets way too excited and animated when he's in the company of hunky male celebrities and sports stars.

Rihanna and Melissa Forde arrive at Tramps private members club in Mayfair just before 1.30am, following Drakes performance at the O2 Arena

Bajan singer Rihanna, right, arrived at the appropriately named Tramps private members club in Mayfair (London) with her bestie Melissa Forde, left, just before 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. The ladies attended Canadian rapper Drake's performance at the O2 Arena. The besties spent over 3 hours inside the venue partying with around 30 friends, before leaving around 5 a.m. and heading back to their hotel. Tongues are wagging about how desperate Rihanna has been behaving lately. The singer always puts her career on hold to chase emotionally unavailable men around the globe. But how ironic is it that men never chase her? Obviously she has nothing to offer them other than sex.

Usher is all smiles despite reports of protege Justin Bieber dissing him as he shops along La Brea Avenue in Hollywood, CA

R&B singer Usher Raymond was all smiles despite reports of protege Justin Bieber dissing him as he shopped along La Brea Avenue in Hollywood, CA on Monday. The popular singer and judge on 'The Voice' avoided answering questions about Justin as he shopped at American Rag.

In a court deposition video leaked by gossip website TMZ, Bieber dismissed reports that Usher discovered him. “Usher? Yeah, that sounds familiar,” said Bieber. “I was found on YouTube. I was instrumental in my own career.” Similarly, the Jackson 5 always denied the manufactured story that they were discovered by Diana Ross.

Rihanna and Drake spending quality time together in Paris USA/AUS ONLY

Bajan singer Rihanna was seen arriving at Bercy to attend rapper Drake's concert in Paris, France. Drake is rumored to be Rihanna's new boyfriend. But, according to my insider, they are just good friends. Still, I can see this friendship developing into a romance. Today's modern woman tends to confuse her feelings and sexual desires for Love. For this reason many women fall for the wrong type of men over and over again. If Rihanna and Drake's friendship does develop into Love it will be a lasting one because her feelings aren't involved. Rihanna has told friends in the past that Drake is not her type. The key to finding a lasting relationship is to stop looking for your "type" and look for Love instead.

Usher Raymond does some shopping at Maxfield store in West Hollywood, LA

Pop singer Usher Raymond, 35, was spotted dashing to his Range Rover SUV after shopping at Maxfield store in West Hollywood, LA. Usher was later seen having lunch at Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles. I broke the news on Twitter.com that Usher finally unloaded his $3 million Roswell mansion at a loss ($2.2 million). I'm told it took some convincing to get Usher's ex-wife Tameka Foster Raymond to move her things out after the closing, but don't quote me on that. Tameka reportedly took a job working on a reality show to make ends meet.

According to my very well-connected rock solid source, Rihanna and Drake are NOT dating. Ignore the flurry of rumors littering the blogosphere about these two friends.

Yes, Rihanna attended a couple of Drake's concerts, and on Thursday they partied at Houston's V-Live strip club. But be clear that there is no romantic interest. Remember where you read this first.

  • Nelly defends Drake

    Despite all of his achievements, awards and record sales, Canadian rapper Drake still can't get the respect he thinks he deserves. At issue is the continued criticism of Drake as more of a singer than a rapper.

    St. Louis rapper Nelly rushed to Drake's defense saying an artist shouldn't be limited to just rapping.

    "The guy sold damn near 800,000 the first week - so it's a lot of fans that like Drake's singing," said Nelly in an interview with Vlad-TV.

    "As an artist, you can't have a stigma put on yourself as far as what you can do and what you can't do," Nelly continued. "You just try to be the best artist that you can be. We're in a time right now where being an artist doesn't limit you to rapping. It just doesn't limit you to singing. It limits you to create. All your job is is to create good music. He's creating good music. Fans that don't like to hear Drake sing, then switch to the next song where he's rapping."

    Drake Nothing Was the Same leaks

    Despite his best efforts, Drake's latest album, Nothing Was the Same, leaked online last night. The reaction on Twitter ran the gamut from "Hated it" to "obsessed" fans who vowed to wait until the album drops before listening.

    Originally due out on September 15, Nothing Was the Same was pushed back one week to September 24. That was apparently enough time for a hacker to upload the tracks to the Internet. Links are going up faster than Drake's record label can pull them down.

    So far there has been no reaction from Drake or his record label.

    Listen to the album before you buy it after the break.

    Miley Cyrus Shocks MTV VMAs

    Shock singer Lady Gaga hoped last night would cap her big comeback after her long hiatus to undergo hip surgery. But Gaga's well-laid plans of mischief and mayhem for the MTV VMA's were foiled by young upstart Miley Cyrus, who had plans of her own.

    Cyrus, who has twerked her way into the hearts of hoodrats everywhere, hit the stage twerking in a teeny, tiny vinyl bikini. Cyrus's controversial booty poppin' shocked veteran actor Will Smith who brought along his two children. After the slutty performance, comedian Kevin Hart quipped, "Miley better get a pregnancy test after all that twerkin'."

    J Cole and Drake

    Rapper J. Cole sparked controversy when he said President Obama wouldn't have been elected if his skin was dark.

    In an interview with BET, Cole said 'colorism' brainwashes black people to see light skinned people as highly favored in the black community. As an example, Cole said President Obama's light skin helped him win the election in 2008.

    "Barack Obama would not be President if he were dark skin," said Cole.

    "That brainwashing that tells us that light skin is better, it’s subconsciously in us, whether we know it or not… still pursuing light skin women," said Cole.

    Drake new music

    Rapper superstar Drake wrestled Jay Z's crown from him in 2012 and never looked back. Don't think Jigga isn't feeling Drake's heat. The self-professed "light skin Keith Sweat" released his 2nd single, "All Me," off his much anticipated new album, Nothing Was The Same, available Sept 17. Drake, with the help of rappers 2 Chainz and Big Sean, lets Jay Z know that he got to the top all by himself. So confident is Drake that he even let Sean outshine him on his own track -- something Jay Z would never do.
