Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown has again commented on her friendship with Drake, this time in response to some people's criticism.

"Why u gotta make a lovely friendship ur headline?" she wrote in an Instagram Story update. "U guys are weird… For real." Brown, next set to star in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, went on to note how fortunate she's been to meet people in the entertainment industry who have given her their time "to help me further my career" while offering "wisdom and guidance."

Ultimately, Brown would like people to spend their time discussing "real problems" instead. "Im very blessed to have amazing people in my life," she said. "U dont get to choose that for me."

Most recently, Brown spoke of her friendship with Drake during a red carpet interview at this year's Emmys. "I met him in Australia and he's honestly so fantastic and a great friend and a great role model," she said. "We just texted each other the day, like, 'I miss you so much' and I was like 'I miss you more.' He's coming to Atlanta [where Stranger Things is filmed] so I'm definitely gonna go and see him. I'm so excited, yeah."

As for Stranger Things, we sadly won't be getting new episodes in time for Halloween. Season 3's delay, however, will be "worth the wait" according to Netflix.

"You know, the Duffer brothers and Shawn Levy have worked really hard and they understand the stakes are high," Cindy Holland, the streaming service’s VP of Original Content, said back in July. "They want to deliver something bigger and better than what they did last year. And so, they really want to take the time to get it right. I think it's gonna be a fantastic season."
