Drake uses acceptance speech to make amends

Trinidad-born rapper Nicki Minaj opened the Billboard Music Awards last night with a nine minute set that included a lot of booty twerking/wining and jerking.

"We're all here on Earth for a limited amount of time, and we gotta show love while we're here", Drake began his acceptance speech for the Billboard Top 200 Album.

I'm dying laughing that someone said Drake is gonna smash, and 40 is already working on the High School Musical sample. Such was the case last night at the Billboard Music Awards when Drake dared to compliment Vanessa Hudgens, onstage no less, for looking fantastic. "I wish they had left that for people that know how to use it". "I love you. I love you".

And since then, the rappers have not been on friendly terms. Nicki ends her set with an elaborately attractive performance of "Regret in Your Tears".

Minaj and Drake were close initially, but their relationship soured when she started dating Mill a couple of years back. He thanked Lil Wayne for taking the original risk on the kid from Toronto, leading to his Young Money record deal, and flirted with show host Vanessa Hudgens, telling her that she looked "beautiful", to the exaggerated chagrin of his "date", Nicki Minaj, who mouthed "What about me?" for the cameras.

Since Drizzy appears to be on a beef squashing spree, will he end his feud with Meek?
