Drake admits he was very naive about Rihanna. Drizzy thought he was on to something, but it turned out to be a false alarm. No fireworks.
ELLE: “Fireworks” was about being Rihanna’s rebound guy, right?
D: Not necessarily the rebound guy.
ELLE: Did she hurt you?
D: At the time it hurt, but she didn’t mean to. I’ll never put that on her. I was hurt because I started to slowly realize what it was. I guess I thought it was more. That was the first girl with any fame that paid me any mind. You spend days reading about this person in the magazines. All of a sudden you have this number-one song and you’re at some birthday party and there she is. And you’re just some naive kid from Toronto staying in some shitty-ass hotel who got invited to this party on a whim. That’s just how it happened.
