Nicki Minaj says Drake was ‘excited’ during her ‘Anaconda’ lap dance


Rapper Nicki Minaj spoke to “MTV News” about her already-infamous “Anaconda” video and revealed that her Young Money labelmate, Drake, seemed to definitely enjoy their lap dance scene at the end of the video. In the clip, Nicki performs for Drizzy while he sits in a chair stoically; before she’s finished and struts away as he drops his face into his hands.

According to Minaj, Drake got a kick out of her sexy performance, to put it mildly.

“Drake, you know … he’s an actor,” she said. “So he did a good job of containing himself. But after the lap dance he was excited like hell. He was like, ‘Yo, do you understand like I’m the man after this video comes out?’”

When she was asked if she meant Drake was “excited” both emotionally and … physically, Minaj was straightforward.

“I think a little bit of both,” she said.

Shortly after the video premiered last week, Drake captioned an Instagram photo with: “Ayyyyyyyye @nickiminaj way way wayyyyyy up. Def the best invite to a video shoot EVER. #ViewsFromMyChair” #MyAnacondaWasWayUp.”
