“I just saw her sitting at the table and I had had a few drinks,” explained Rae around the 1:50 mark above. “So I was like ‘Rihanna’s over there, let me go say hi, she knows me, we homegirls.’ And I went up to her and I was like, you know, tapped her. And she was so friendly and nice, I wasn’t expecting that, and she was like ‘Hey girl, good to see you!’ And I was like ‘Uh…oh…we’re, uh…’ and just excused myself and walked away. So any chance that we had to be best friends, I ruined it with my drunken nervousness, starstruck-ness.”
This likely won’t be the last time the two cross paths though since Rae is supposed to be writing a Twitter-conceived heist film starring Lupita Nyong’o and Rihanna. In the meantime, the two definitely have at least one thing in common—they’ve both been pursued by Drake. While RiRi made it clear she’s not interested in the Toronto rapper, Rae once again stated she did not turn him down at the Golden Globes.
