Young Money’s Drake has the Internet buzzing this week thanks to an unexpected wet kiss from pop icon Madonna at the annual Coachella music festival.
Footage from the head-scratching moment surfaced online Sunday (April 12) night.
Drake fulfilled every young man’s fantasy (in 1985) of making out with Madonna, but it’s 2015 and he looked disgusted by the whole thing. Madge made a guest appearance Sunday night at Coachella during Drake’s set. She did a few songs and then went in for the prolonged kiss … as Drizzy just sat there. (TMZ)
Aside from the kiss, Drizzy’s upcoming OVO Fest will be privately funded as a result of the government not ponying up any big bucks.
Last year, the event was given $300,000 in provincial government funding to put on the popular festival. Celebrate Ontario released its 2015 events list and how much money each received and OVO Fest was nowhere to be found. According to Celebrate Ontario the grants given out are meant to, “”enhance programs, activities and services that will lead to long-term improvements. This support helps grow tourism in the province by making it easier for festival and event organizers to offer new and improved experiences that will attract more tourists and increase visitor spending.” (XXL Mag)
Music icon Lauryn Hill surprised fans with a performance at last year’s OVO Fest.
Jhené Aiko opened the show, making way for the first big surprise of the evening, Ms. Lauryn Hill. The Fugees frontwoman performed “Killing Me Softly,” “Fu-Gee-La,” and “Ready or Not” before a bowing Drake showed up to perform a mash-up of “Draft Day” and “Doo Wop (That Thing).” (Rap-Up)
Following sets from Trey Songz, Usher, DJ Khaled and J. Cole, G-Unit invaded the concert.
Majid Jordan guested on “Hold On, We’re Going Home” before 50 Cent and his G-Unit members Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo stormed the stage for “Gangsta,” “Smoke” (with Trey Songz), “I Get Money,” “Don’t Worry Bout It,” and “In Da Club.” (Rap-Up)
