AceShowbiz - Drake made it personal during his acceptance speech at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards. Taking the stage at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 21 to accept the Top 200 Billboard Artist award, he gave a flirty shout out to Vanessa Hudgens who hosted the event.
"It's crazy that we're all here on Earth for a limited amount of time and we gotta show love while we're here," he initially said, before adding, "So tonight, I want to say, Vanessa Hudgens you look incredible tonight." He has since followed the actress on Instagram and liked one of her posts.
A jealous Nicki Minaj was caught on camera shouting, "What about me?!" Drake didn't forget her, but he wanted to make amends Ludacris, with whom he has publicly feuded for years, first. "I want to say, Ludacris, I know we haven't always seen eye to eye, but I've always been a big fan of yours. I got a lot of love for you. I want to let you know that face to face while I'm still here," he said.
The Canadian rapper continued with a praise for Nicki, "I want to say Nicki Minaj, I'm so glad we found our way back because I love you and I could never, ever see it any other way." He also told Lil Wayne who was sitting next to Nicki, "If it wasn't for the risk you took, none of us would be here tonight."
Drake has received another prize at the BMAs for Top Male Artist category. He was also booked as a performer at the star-studded event.
