This week, we discussed the potential power-coupling of Drake and Taylor Swift. Both musical stars happen to be single right now – Taylor and Tom Hiddleston broke up last month and Drake and Rihanna broke up this month. Taylor made a point to attend Drake’s big birthday bash in LA on Sunday, and sources were buzzing about how much time Drake spent with Taylor, and how they looked flirty and giggly together. I think the idea of Drake and Tay-Tay as a couple is quite insane. I mean, I can see why it would look good on paper, but in reality? No. It would be bad. Really bad. In any case, TMZ’s sources – are these Drake sources? – want you to know that sure, Drake introduced Tay-Tay to his mom, but that Tay and Drizzy are not dating.
Drake gave Taylor Swift the VIP treatment at his 30th birthday bash, including some QT with his mom — normally an early sign of dating — but that’s not the case … this time. Sources connected to Drake tell us he introduced Swift to his mom and several of his homies during the Sunday night party in WeHo. TayTay’s not a regular at Drizzy’s legendary parties … which is why he wanted to make sure she met his inner circle, including Mom. After all, she’s arguably the biggest female music star on the planet.
Of course, the special care sparked all sorts of post-party reports Drake and Taylor were getting hot and heavy at the event — and we’re told they are close, but only friends. They have been for years, in fact, they hung out at the 2013 VMAs. So, no banging here. Besides, that’s RiRi’s job.
You know how we know they’re not dating? Because there aren’t photos of Taylor and Drake’s mom walking along a Toronto street together. That’s how the Taylor Swift Boyfriend Experience works, get it straight! So while it’s suspicious that Drake made a point of introducing Taylor to his mom, the fact that there are no photos of the event probably means that there’s nothing there.
Still, we should probably think of a name for the possible Drake + Taylor coupling. CB was the one to come up with Tiddles (Hiddles + Taylor) before they even happened. Would Drake + Taylor be Draylor? Drift? Swake? Taubrey (Taylor + Aubrey)?
