Drake receives humanitarian award for Toronto’s Bob Marley Day, but does not attend

The City of Toronto officially declared this Wednesday Bob Marley Day, in order to celebrate the theme "unity through diversity." As part of the festivities, eight Torontonians were honoured with humanitarian awards -- including Canada Basketball's executive vice-president Rowan Barrett, the first female judge of colour in the Court of Canadian Citizenship Pamela Appelt, and "Take Care" rapper Drake. Drake, however, did not attend the event at Toronto's city hall.

We don’t know exactly where the 26-year-old hip-hop star and former "Degrassi" actor was on Wednesday (though he was definitely at his Los Angeles mansion on Super Bowl Sunday), but we do know what he was doing: reveling in his crush on "Parks and Recreation" actress Aubrey Plaza.

"I never tweet what I'm doing cause it'd just be like 'yooo who else is up eating granola and watching aubrey plaza interview snippets,'" @Drizzy tweeted at 8 a.m. on Feb. 6.

He then followed up that tweet with, "And the answer to my question of who else is up doing that specific order of things at this time is clearly nobody. #Thinkingthingsthrough."

So apparently Drake's life is not all about Super Bowl parties and hosting hip-hop battles with fellow former teen TV stars. His life is sometimes just as mundane as ours -- even if, on the same day, he's receiving an award from his hometown.

But apparently Drake's crush on the 28-year-old actress knows no bounds. The rapper, whose real name is Aubrey Graham, first declared his admiration way back in 2010.

“I have a crush on Aubrey Plaza from Parks and Recreation but things might get weird cause we have the same name,” he wrote.

It seems that Drizzy has a thing for TV stars! Reports of romance recently swirled after he celebrated former "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" actress Tatyana Ali's birthday with champagne and a kiss on the cheek.

But Plaza is currently breaking out of TV. She starred in last year's indie flick "Safety Not Guaranteed" with Jeff Garlin and Jake Johnson, and she'll soon be seen in the upcoming movies "A Glimpse Inside the Mind Of Charles Swan III" with Charlie Sheen and "Life After Beth" with John C. Reilly. She even starred in the music video for Father John Misty's "Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings."

Maybe if he asks nicely, Plaza will make an appearance in Drake's next video. Let's hope her boyfriend, screenwriter Jeff Baena, doesn't have a problem with it.
