Drake Plans to Break the Internet During Tonight's ESPYS

Will he do a sketch with Chris Brown? Will he go further with his flirtations with WNBA star Skylar Diggins? Before he hosts the ESPYS tonight Drake dished on his plans for the show during a teleconference with reporters on Friday.

Rumors of Drake and Chris Brown working together started swirling after a photo popped up on Instagram last week featuring the two music stars in the studio together. While Drake did not comment on whether Chris would appear with him in the show, Drizzy did promise to give the internet plenty to talk about.

"I think that is kind of the goal of anything in this day and age is to sort of have a life on the internet," said Drake. "That's why I'm excited. We've been working hard on the pre-tapes and on the monologue and on every aspect of the show just to make sure that it lives on past this night, which I can 100 percent guarantee it will."

As an avid sports fan, Drake will know a lot of the athletes in the room tonight, but one star that he's looking forward to meeting is Skylar Diggins. The rapper has made known his affections for the Tulsa Shock guard via social media, prompting a simple response from Skylar's boyfriend Daniel Smith, and we could see Drake's flirtations go from 0 to 100 during tonight's show.

"I do have a growing affection for Skylar, and I'm not sure she'll be able to make it, but I'm sure I'll give you a treat if you enjoy my past references," said Drake. "I've never met Skylar. I'm sure it will be extremely awkward when I do," Drake added.

The ESPYS air tonight at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN.
