What led to Jhene Aiko “dissing” Drake on SNL? Are they dating?? She gives the real story behind it all…
Earlier this year, YMCMB rapper Drake appeared as the special guest on the infamous Saturday Night Live show and while his comedic performance was certainly a memorable part of the show, the moment of the evening came courtesy of silky-voiced songstress Jhene Aiko.
Check out what she had to say below.
On working with producer No I.D. for her latest EP “Sail Out:”
I wanted to do it independent. He wasn’t a labelhead. He’s an artist. He’s a creative person and producer. Not only that but he’s a vegetarian, he doesn’t drink alcohol anymore; he just seems like he’s where I would like to be.
We ended up having talks about Buddhism and about spirituality and everything was just very compatible. He has proven so far that he gets it. He trusts me. He trusts that I know my vision.
On growing up in L.A.:
I remember the L.A. riots. I was a baby, maybe a few years old, and where we lived everything was on fire. We drove up LaBrea to my grandmother’s house. Going up the hill, looking back, I thought the world was ending.
On being robbed at gunpoint with her grandmother when she was five:
They put a gun to my head in the kitchen while we laid down.
On Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) dating rumors:
We have the same publisher. One of his best friends, Fam, went to school with my brother who passed away. We have the same sense of humor, very sarcastic and dry. It was automatically like, ‘I like you! We can be friends.’
She says the rumors about them being together don’t bother her. He’s an actor. We’re both creative people. We are friends and we hang out. We’re just friends but I’m also single, so you never know what friendships can develop into. We like each other as people, so you know, who knows?
Jhene also dropped a bombshell about who she’s dating now, revealed what Drake had to say about the Vine video of her “dissing” him on SNL and more. Find out if Drizzy is her new mystery man on the flip…
