Degrassi Co-Stars Support Aubrey Graham

Drake has gone from starring on the Canadian teen drama “Degrassi: The Next Generation,” under the name Aubrey Graham, to being nominated for Best New Artist at this year’s Video Music Awards. And his former “Degrassi” co-stars Lauren Collins and Adamo Ruggiero couldn’t be more excited to have one of their own up for a Moonman.

“You’d better win!” Collins joked to MTV News when the duo stopped by to promote their TV movie “Degrassi Goes Hollywood,” which airs Friday on the N. “I hope he wins. I think he might.”

Meanwhile, Ruggiero has it all planned out about what will happen if Drake wins. “Bring the awards home, and we’ll, like, polish them together,” he laughed. “We’re gonna be so honored to see him there.”

Aside from all things Drake, the pair are also stoked to see what Lady Gaga will come up with when she takes the VMA stage September 13. “No one knows what she’s going to wear,” Ruggiero said. “I think she’ll sing ‘Paparazzi.’ I’m pretty sure she’ll sing that. I think she’s awesome and super cool and breaks the mold. She’s gonna take it over.”

Collins agreed, saying, “I don’t think we can even fathom what she’s going to do.” Plus, Collins thinks Gaga’s biggest VMA competition, Beyonce, probably has enough Moonmen at this point. “I kind of think it’s Gaga’s year. And I’m sure Beyonce has 400 VMAs in her fantastic home.”
