    "I don’t know. It seems like a thing of, like, ancient times or something," he confessed.

    Drake said that "eventually," he thinks he probably will settle down with someone, but right now, he doesn't think he's equipped for marriage. "I don’t think I can offer somebody what they’d be looking for right now. Just consistency. I think my life, my work is my priority."

    Bobbi commented that Drake just wanted to continue “sleeping around,” but he said that wasn't the case.

    "I wouldn't want to not be able to contribute as a partner," he stressed. "I just don't want to disappoint someone."

    Drake also said that if he did ever get married, it likely wouldn't be to another celebrity. "I probably will not end up marrying someone famous," he shared. "Famous people really aren't that, like, anything — they're not that intriguing."

    Drake said he prefers to be with someone more unique and individualistic. “I like somebody that’s, like, their own,” he explained. “They’re not just not like a carbon copy, like a person that I’ve seen a bunch of times throughout my existence. I like somebody with a sense of humor, you know? I like — I don’t know, like, cosplay.”

    Drake clarified that he doesn't mean they have to dress up but noted that he'd probably like them "more" if they're into cosplay. ‌"Not with me, just like generally."

    Drake, as you probably know, previously dated people like Rihanna, SZA, and artist Sophie Brussaux, with whom he shares a son, Adonis, six. Last year, he reportedly got a necklace made with 42 diamonds, representing his number of failed engagements.
