Drake: Marriage ‘seems like a thing of, like, ancient times or something’

Drake has always tried to project an image of an emo guy always looking for a real relationship. That’s not who he really is though. The reality of Drake is that he’s the guy who hid a whole-ass child for a year and mocks his child’s mother in his music. He’s also the guy who has uncomfortably close “friendships” with teenage girls, within and outside of the music industry. And don’t forget all of that misogynistic sh-t he’s said about Megan Thee Stallion and Serena Williams either. Dude has an issue with women. Well, here’s one silver lining, I guess – Drake doesn’t really believe in marriage.

Drake revealed the reason he hasn’t tied the knot with anyone yet as he opened up about his love life. Appearing on “The Really Good Podcast with Bobbi Althoff” Thursday, the “Hotline Bling” hitmaker, 36, called the concept of marriage “a thing of ancient times.”

“I don’t know. It seems like a thing of, like, ancient times or something. I think I will eventually,” he said. “I don’t know, I don’t think I can offer somebody what they’d be looking for. Just consistency. I think my life, my work is my priority.”

When Althoff quipped that Drake, whose real name is Aubrey Graham, refuses to settle down in a bid to continue “sleeping around,” the rapper was quick to shut it down. The “One Dance” hitmaker said he can’t offer “consistency” or dedication to a relationship “at this stage” in his life.

“I don’t wanna get married ’cause like, I just don’t wanna disappoint someone,” he added. “I probably will not end up marrying someone famous. Famous people really aren’t that, like, anything — they’re not that intriguing.”

And when quizzed on what qualities he’s looking for in a significant other, the rapper said he wants “somebody that’s an individual.”

“I like somebody that’s, like, their own,” he explained. “They’re not just not like a carbon copy, like a person that I’ve seen a bunch of times throughout my existence. I like somebody with a sense of humor, you know? I like — I don’t know, like, cosplay.”

Of all the ways Drake is a sh-tty person, I don’t think this is one of them. While the whole marriage/parenthood dilemma is still massively different for men, culturally, men are still expected to “settle down and get married” by a certain age. Most of Drake’s generational peers are married, I would assume. Now, do I think Drake is trying to be an outlier? Do we even believe that he has strong feelings either way? No – he clearly believes he will get married at some point, but I appreciate that he’s basically saying that the whole concept of marriage is antiquated.
