Young Money’s Drake found himself in the hot seat heading into the weekend, completely misinterpreting a compliment made by television star Rosie O’Donnell.
Drizzy reacted to a comment by O’Donnell referring to “Drake” as being directed toward him.
“Life goal #6 accomplished.,” he tweeted March 29th.
“The fact that Rosie O’Donnell knows who I am is probably best feeling ever. I’m gonna casually tell 2 chainz after he’s done this verse.” (Drake’s Twitter)
Unfortunately for the platinum-selling rapper, Rosie’s tweet was meant for actor Drake Bell.
Rosie tweeted “Drake is cute … Nice muscles,” which the Canadian “Started From the Bottom” rhyme-sayer noticed, then probably flashed an “awwww shucks” smile before retweeting. He then wrote “Life goal #6 accomplished” and followed with this hilarious bit: “The fact that Rosie O’Donnell knows who I am is probably best feeling ever. I’m gonna casually tell 2 chainz after he’s done this verse.” Sure, Rosie does know of the rapper Drake, even details like his Degrassi character’s name and about that bar scuffle with Chris Brown. But hopefully you savored that “best feeling ever,” Drake, because it didn’t last long. Because Rosie was, in fact, complementing the “nice muscles” of Drake Bell, the Nickelodeon star from the defunct The Amanda Show and Drake & Josh, not the Canadian rapper. Ouch. (FUSE TV)
She eventually cleared up the confusion and made sure to give Drizzy a shout-out.
O’Donnell subsequently moved to clarify her earlier tweet, writing, “DRAKE FROM JOSH N DRAKE ON NICKELODEON !!!! NOT THE SINGER – THE GUY ON THE DIVING SHOW!!!”, although she reached out to the hip-hop star too to show him he was also on her radar. She added, “but- I do think the rapper/singer drake is a QTpa2T (cutie patootie) – also with nice muscles… Of course I know u – u r very talented and quite cute (sic).” And O’Donnell couldn’t help but make reference to Drake’s infamous New York bar brawl with R&B singer Chris Brown last year, quipping, “No more bar fights”.

Just a few weeks ago, Hollywood hottie Amanda Bynes used Twitter to send a flirty comment his way.
Amanda Bynes has her eyes on Drake! The 26-year-old actress, who was spotted out and about in NYC yesterday for the first time in months, took to Twitter today to share her crush on the 26-year-old rapper. “@drake is a hot fellow :D,” Bynes posted along with a photo of Drake and friends. The newly curly-haired star also shared a funny photo in which Drake’s face is swapped with Nicki Minaj with the caption, “He’s the woman bwahahah @drake.” Drake has yet to respond to Bynes’ tweets of admiration.
