Is Drake & J.Lo’s New Relationship Actually A Publicity Stunt?

Is Drake & J.Lo’s New Relationship Actually A Publicity Stunt?

Is Drake & J.Lo’s New Relationship Actually A Publicity Stunt?

Not to be smug we-told-you-so-ers*, but an insider recently dished that Drake and JLo’s new-found romance is merely a method to promote their respective careers and their new music together…in other words, it’s purely a PR stunt.

Which is what we have been saying, just FYI (see exhibit A & exhibit B for proof). 

The insider in question said that Jenny and Drake’s recent love affair is just an attempt to publicize their record together. Sounds about right, doesn’t it?


Besides, hand to God, we have felt that this was a superrrrr-duper transparent plan from the get-go. It’s pretty obvious, right? It is just way too orchestrated. The timing alone is suspect as hell.

The insider also said that if the pair were really dating, they’d be “way more private about it”. Hm…see this we DON’T buy. Both of them are…press loving. Is that a nice way to call them attention-thirsty? Because we are trying to be diplomatic here. 


So, maybe we should toss this particular tidbit of evidence out the window? You know, since this “insider” clearly isn’t living in reality. Neither of them would go the private route. C’mon.

But, even without this insider declaration in our pocket, we are sticking to our guns and saying that this is a fake-fake-fake relationship still. Because anyone can drag a person to a holiday dance party and post annoying “loved up” photos all over social media. We do it all the time, dammit. A real relationship goes beyond loved-up photo ops and that’s all we have seen so far. 

Next up will be a live duet. Or a carousel of stories about how “in love” and “serious” they are about one another. Predictable much?

Stay tuned! More on this show-mance is sure to come.

*Kidding, we love being right and lording this over others.
