Drake’s relationship with Serena Williams started off rocky, as the Canadian rapper got blamed for jinxing her at her last tennis match. The match was particularly important for Serena (and her fans), as a win would have meant she achieved a Grand Slam (aka winning all 4 major tennis championships in one year). Unfortunately for Drake, the jinxing controversy even got a point where Serena fans had the hash tag #BlameDrake trending on Twitter.
However, it seems the duo have chosen to ignore the #BlameDrake movement, as their relationship continues to blossom.
Drake was seen front row at the tennis pro’s fashion line show at New York Fashion Week.
On Tuesday, the Back to Back singer was seen sitting next to Anna Wintour, as they both watched the Serena Williams Signature Collection by HSN show. During the show, Drake was seen smiling and clapping, as he supported his new girl friend.
Along with Drake and Anna, the front row also facilitated supermodels Gigi Hadid and Lily Aldridge.
Drake’s support wasn’t one sided either. Serena gave him a shout out during her fashion show, as she played a few of his songs while the models walked the runway.
The couple continued expressing their affection for each other, as they were seen flirting with each other backstage after the show. In addition, Drake was photographed kissing Serena’s hand as he praised her fashion line.
Justin Bieber threw some major shade at Canadian pop-star Shawn Mendes when he sat down for an interview with 95.5, a New York radio station.
The radio station host asked Bieber what his advice would be for fellow singer, 17-year-old Shawn Mendes. However, Bieber didn’t offer much of anything, as he coolly replied, “Who’s Shawn Mendes?”
After the radio host explained that Mendes is a Youtube and Vine star that quickly rose to fame with such hits as “Life of the Party” and “Stitches,” as well as debuted at No.1 with his first album, Bieber simply replied, “Nice. Nice. Good for him.”
Shawn Mendes has also spoken about Bieber. In April, Shawn revealed in an interview with the Toronto Sun that he didn’t want to be known as “the next Bieber.” Adding, “[Justin’s] stuff and style are totally different. When I play shows it’s just me and the guitar, it’s kind of unique. I mean, I really look up to Ed Sheeran. I really look up to Bruno Mars, and yeah, Justin’s great too.”
So it seems that both young male singers aren’t necessarily the biggest fans of one another. However, if Bieber really wants to rid himself of his “bad boy” image, he might want to start warming up to artists like Shawn.
