Drake mistakes Rosie O'Donnell tweet as compliment about him

Rapper Drake endured an embarrassing Twitter.com mix-up on Friday (29Mar13) after assuming comedienne Rosie O'Donnell was referring to him when she gushed about his namesake Drake Bell online.

The funnywoman took to her micro-networking blog on Tuesday (26Mar13) to compliment Bell on his toned torso after tuning in to watch the actor compete on reality diving show Splash.

She wrote, "Drake is cute ... Nice muscles" - but her failure to specify which Drake she was referring to prompted the Best I Ever Had hitmaker to respond in glee.

He tweeted, "Life goal #6 (number six) accomplished. The fact that Rosie O'Donnell knows who I am is probably best feeling ever..."

O'Donnell subsequently moved to clarify her earlier tweet, writing, "DRAKE FROM JOSH N DRAKE ON NICKELODEON !!!! NOT THE SINGER - THE GUY ON THE DIVING SHOW!!!", although she reached out to the hip-hop star too to show him he was also on her radar.

She added, "but- I do think the rapper/singer drake is a QTpa2T (cutie patootie) - also with nice muscles... Of course I know u - u r very talented and quite cute (sic)."

And O'Donnell couldn't help but make reference to Drake's infamous New York bar brawl with R&B singer Chris Brown last year (12), quipping, "No more bar fights".
