"I love Drake more than anything, and I feel like I say this all the time, and I feel like he never notices me, but like, maybe one day," Winters pined. "I just I love him. I think he's so great."

"If you're listening," Winter continued, addressing the "Hotline Bling" rapper directly, "I'm here. I've always been here. Hit me up."

While she's got no problem opening declaring her love for the Canadian artist, Winter says she's "more cautious" when it comes to oversharing on social media since Kim Kardashian's terrifying encounter with armed thieves who held the reality star at gunpoint in Paris earlier this month.

"That's absolutely terrifying and if that happened to me, I don't know what I would do," Winter shared. "So I'm definitely very cautious about posting specific locations of where I'm at."

"I love to post everything I'm doing, the cities I'm in, but I never like to specifically say where I'm at unless I'm meeting fans at a specific time and specific place," she added. "Because it is a scary world."
