Nicki Minaj and Drake are going back in time—way back. The Young Money rappers lend their voices to the 3D animated film Ice Age: Continental Drift, in theaters July 13. The “Starships” rapper plays a woolly mammoth named Hailey, while Drizzy transforms into a mammoth named Ethan in the prehistoric film, which also stars Jennifer Lopez, Queen Latifah, and Ester Dean. Get a first look at their on-screen characters in the trailer below.
On this week’s episode of the resurrected MTV celebrity prank show Punk’d, Ashton Kutcher returns to pull the rug out from underneath Drake. Convincing the Canadian-born rapper that he is going to meet Vice President Joe Biden, Kutcher manages to fake an entire seismic event complete with a pregnant woman and tasers, and a noticeably shaken Drake has some pretty hilarious reactions. Say what you will about the man in the trucker hat, but that’s a freakin’ impressive deception. Check out the clip below (which also sees Kanye’s girlfriend getting pranked.)
After a long hiatus, MTV’s Punk’d made its return to television this season with crazier pranks, bigger explosives and numerous heart grabbing moments. This season, however, was a tad bit different than the others as the creator Ashton Kutcher enlisted numerous celebrities to prank their celeb friends instead of him doing the pranking (which sometimes was much funnier) but in a special upcoming episode, Ashton returns to punk Drake and Kim Kardashian.
In the short teaser clip, released by MTV, Drake was caught on camera looking mad scared as he says, “I thought we were about to get f-cking blown up!’. Although you have to tune in next Sunday, June 3rd to see exactly what shook him up, the teaser is pretty funny.
On Monday (September 27th), MTV is set to debut a new live afternoon pop culture-driven show called “The Seven,” which will curate the seven, must know news stories of the day.
The show’s first live in-studio guests are Hip-Hop sensation Drake, as well as the cast of the forthcoming film The Social Network (Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake).
