"I had a close friend of mine that didn't support my album, but then, like, supported other people's stuff, and I asked him why," Drake said during his acceptance speech after winning the award for Top Billboard 200 Album for Views at the Billboard Music Awards. "The response was 'I don't want to look thirsty, and you get enough love as it is.'" That interaction taught Drizzy a valuable lesson: "We're all here on Earth for a limited amount of time. We gotta show love while we're here." 

Then, Drake got a couple of things off his chest. "Vanessa Hudgens, you look...incredible tonight." Now we all know what was going through the rapper's mind when the camera caught him staring at Hudgens during the opening monologue.

Nicki Minaj, however, wasn't happy with Drake's comment.

Drake admitted that he and Ludacris haven't always seen eye-to-eye, but he's still a big fan and loves him. Drizzy also expressed his gratitude for finding his way back to Nicki Minaj.

He even showed his appreciation for Lil Wayne before bringing some levity back by closing his acceptance speech and commenting on his father's purple suit with purple shoes game. 

Afterwards, Drake seemed to be shooting his shot, following her on IG and liking one of her pics. Savage mode.
