Drake’s “Girlfriend” Maliah Michel Talks: Meeting His Mom, Dancing For Dollars And Her Dark Past

- By Bossip Staff

With Drake’s album in stores this week, rumored girlfriend Maliah Michel took the opportunity to extend her fifteen minutes of fame. Pop the hood for details from the exotic dancer about how she met the Canadian rapper and how life led her to a career on the pole

Check out excerpts from VIBE.com’s interview with Maliah earlier this week:

Recently, your part in Drake’s “Find Your Love” really caught people’s attention. How’d you link with Aubrey?

Drake had actually come to the club where I work at in Houston called Dreams. I think that’s where he first saw me. I didn’t even get to speak to him that night and like a week later everybody started telling me Drake shouted me out in a song. I thought that it was so cool because I hadn’t even talked to him before. I mean, obviously he saw something he liked [laughs].

So prior to Drake name dropping you on “Miss Me”, you guys never even shared a conversation?

Yup, I was so flattered, too —especially with me being used to the strip club environment, where guys are always just… thirsty and on you. This guy didn’t even say anything but gave me props on a song.

Were you immediately attracted to him?

Who doesn’t think Drake is cute? [Laughs] But I don’t really listen to a lot of music or watch TV, and instantly I loved his music. Yea so…

You weren’t just a little jealous of Drake confessing his love for Nicki Minaj on the same song?
I love Nicki Minaj, too! [Laughs] who doesn’t?

Well, so how did you end up starring in “Find Your Love”?

A friend of his Jazz Prince, J.Prince’s son, called me and told me that his artist wanted me to come to Jamaica to shoot this video. At the time I didn’t know it was Drake, so I was like “Oh by the way, can you tell Drake thanks for the shout out?” And right after that he told me he called me back. So later on that night Drake called me directly and told me that he was the one shooting the video and how he wanted me for the lead part. I got to admit I was really geeked and could barely talk.

You were starstruck?

I was all groupied out [Laughs]… all smiles.

Your onscreen chemistry seems so natural, almost like you guys really are a couple…

It was so funny because when we were shooting the beach scene. The director, Anthony Mandler, was like “Come on, come on! You got to make me feel this!” And we had never kissed or anything before, so I just went for it and kissed him! And we started kissing for real and everybody just started cheering.

So are you dating Drake?

Um… Drake and I are good friends, and we like hanging out… having fun together. That’s all that anyone needs to know at this point.

He seems to have his mom around a lot. Have you met her yet?
[Giggles] oh lord…
I mean she’s a huge part of his life, you must have bumped into momma Drake somewhere…
Yea, she’s amazing… a really beautiful person. His mother really gave me a whole other opinion of him, even though my opinion was very high. He’s just amazing as far the respect level and his mother helped me to see that it wasn’t an act. That’s all I’ll say.

In the story she mentions having it really rough growing up and at one time being engaged to a man who was addicted to heroin and crack!!! You can Read The Rest Here

This stripper turned wifey business has gotten out of control… SMH Would you wife her?

    Drake had one thing in his mind when he first saw her and she had one goal in mind when she realized she had him visually hooked….yall know the deal.
    Perfect recipe for a ROBBERY like the previous poster said.

  • cruzan trini

    She’s beautiful much like all Houston women, ah hem. 🙂

    Drake on Maliah in that song he does with Bun B…
    I don’t judge her, I don’t judge her ,but I could never love her ,cause to her I’m just a rapper ,and soon she’ll have met another


  • 5th ave.

    He’s gay homegirl give it up!

  • She said it.

    Me and @ Slide like a Fresh Pair of Gators were talking about mens fascination with strippers. Never thought I’d see it play out a 2 weeks later.

  • She said it.

    oh yeah. It does seem the stripper turned wifey business is out of control. But who can argue with that if that is what men REALLY want. I mean…if that is what you really want—who am I to tell you that is not right. Would it be better for you to marry a woman who looks just like a stripper but doesn’t strip and you end up regretting it cause you want a real stripper.

  • Erica

    she seem fake with all that giggling, if he was a regular dude she would not think he was “cute” or be attracted to him. another stripper tryna get on like amber rose, anna nicole, and so on….

  • Whoa

    “Who doesn’t think Drake is cute? [Laughs]”

    I don’t think Drake is cute. =|

    He can spit tho…That’s about it….

    LOL I know! That line keeps playing in my head. I wonder what she thought about that part lol! Man, I know I shouldn’t make an opinion on a woman I don’t know, but I really feel like she’s in it for the fame. On her Twitter page, she always makes it a point to mention his name..or maybe she’s just that smitten with him. *shrugs* Oh well, ain’t my life.

  • @ CharmingPervert

    LOL!! U r so right!!

  • Nique(C'mon Vamanos!!)

    **inhaling slowly…sigh**

    Im not going 2 let this Triple Crowns ghetto life story ho take me there 2day.

    *leaving thread*

  • thegreatness

    i doubt he introduced his mother to that and if he did i’m sure she didn’t know that she is on the pole. good luck to that one drake..ooops aubrey


    Why do I get the feeling a lot of dudes who click on this article are only typing with one hand?

  • She said it.

    @ Lola

    Are you upset because rappers and strippers are like peanut butter and jelly or are you mad that we read about it over and over and over and over. Either way, I agree with you–I’m tired of it too.

    @The greatness

    I laughed at that one too. If he did take her home to meet his mom, rappers will have to change all their lyrics. And when did rappers start singing about strippers anyway—I blame the South. Bay Area rappers never did this stupid stuff.

  • wmariah

    S..hit..here i’m in debt with college loans..who would’ve told me that taking the easy route..the stripper route would’ve gotten me a wealthy rapper, athlete and/or celebrity. Pathetic how low this hoes aim in life…and the man that wife them up..even lower.
