On her relationship with Drake:
I look up to Drake,” Jhené says. “Everything in his whole career is commendable. He can act, he can rap, he can sing. I can relate to him. He’s mixed; I’m mixed. Everything he does, I take note because I feel like he’s doing a really good job of being, like, well-rounded. And not only that, he’s really talented. I’m always asking him for advice with stuff and trying to figure out how he deals with being such a big celebrity.
On Vine video and rumors that she “dissed” Drake during SNL:
We’re all standing there, and he’s the only person I know on the stage. The whole time I’m at SNL I’m nervous. Everybody starts hugging each other and I’m just standing there. Right when I turned around, he goes to hug me and it looks like I totally dissed him. I don’t want him to think that he brought me on SNL and I’m like, ‘Anyway….’
[My sister said] It could have been worse if he just woulda turned away. I think it woulda been worse if he just didn’t do anything.
On Drake’s response to the “diss” video:
[I asked him] ‘Remember when you went to hug me and I turned around? They made a GIF of it and it looks like I dissed you,'[Drake told her] “You go on the Internet too much.” And you know what? I probably do.
On whether or not there’s a man in her life now:
I’m about to give you…not a bulls**t answer. There is, but I’m single. Not by choice. Only because I found now that when I talk to guys, they’re wary because they know about Donald, they know I’ve worked with Drake. They’re always side-eyed, suspicious. But I’m loyal in relationships.
If I’m your girlfriend, that’s it. I’m practicing to be your wife at that point because I treat it seriously. I feel like I was born to be a mom and a wife and totally domesticated. I’m not going to spend my time trying to prove that I am really who I say I am.
I can control myself. But if I’m single, I don’t have anything I’m obligated to do for you. At the same time, I would like a man to take control and say, ‘I don’t want you to talk to those guys.’ Give me rules. Yeah! Why not? Be a man. But I can say that there is a person and I hope that we grow to blossom and be everything a beautiful couple can be.
Hmmmm. Kinda makes you who her “industry man” is, riiiiggght?
