Drake slid underneath the covers and got real about why he’s not married in a July 20 appearance on “The Really Good Podcast With Bobbi Althoff.” Althoff, a rising TikTok star who disarms her podcast guests with her deadpan sense of humor, had no problem asking the “Hotline Bling” rapper questions both intimate and silly. This led Drake to share his honest thoughts about marriage and what he’s looking for in a partner.
When asked why he’s never been married, Drake responded, “I don’t know. It seems like a thing of ancient times or something. I think I will eventually. 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.” Althoff teased her guest by asking if he just wanted to “sleep around,” to which he said he couldn’t offer “consistency” at this stage of his life. “I don’t wanna get married ’cause I just don’t wanna disappoint someone, and I’m not like, Amish,” he said.
Drake went on to share details about what he looks for in partner, while also asserting that he’s unlikely to marry a fellow celebrity. “I probably will not end up marrying someone famous,” he told Althoff. He added that famous people aren’t “that intriguing.”
Instead, Drake is looking for someone who is a true individual — and maybe into cosplay? “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.”
Althoff then asked who the musician would like his prospective partner to dress up as, prompting Drake to clarify his remarks. “No, I don’t need them to [dress up] — I probably will f*ck with them more if they are into cosplay,” he said. “Not with me, just like generally.”
“You’re weirder than I thought you were,” Althoff said after hearing his response. Drake shot back, “That’s a fact for sure. You have no idea, honey.”
