Drake collects Birkin bags

Drake has been collecting Birkin bags for his future wife.

The 31-year-old singer - whose full name is Aubrey Drake Graham - has admitted he is a huge "fan" of the Hermes accessory, and he has a "fairly vast" array of the leather holdall, which he has been keeping hold of over the years because he wants to pass them on to "the woman that [he] ends up with one day".

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter about his favourite items, the 'Hotline Bling' hitmaker - who launched his own clothing line October's Very Own (OVO) in 2011 - said: "People would be surprised to know that I am a fan of Birkins. My mom's best friend collects them and when I was young, I sort of started to understand the value in them. And there's very few things in this world, tangible things anyway, that hold their value and sort of appreciate as the years go on.

"It was one of those things that I, you know, just started collecting as well for, I guess, the woman that I end up with one day. So, I have a fairly vast collection of Hermes to offer somebody at some point in life."

Drake has proved he is a successful artist, and has a flare for fashion, but he has admitted he wants to turn his hand to Hollywood and carve out a career in the film industry in the future, although he will never give up his job as a musician.

Speaking previously, Drake - who has landed minor roles in a string of movies, including 'Charlie Barlett', 'Ice Age: Continental Drift' and 'Think Like a Man Too' - said: "I'm sure I'll stop [making music] one day. When it starts to feel like I'm making it up. Hopefully I'll catch it before I ever get there, right? But right now it feels like we just started, so I don't plan on stopping anytime soon. But I do plan on expanding - to take six months or a year to myself and do some great films. Music's always there.

"Acting is another thing that I just can't wait to really dive into, I think after I release 'More Life', which is this playlist I'm working on and finish this tour. I think I'm going to really start to position myself in the acting world and, hopefully, take some great roles."
