Once again, Drake has managed to cause more rumors on his supposed relationship with singer Rihanna. This time, Drake claimed that he actually is in love with the beautiful singer. Drake made the claim on the stage of the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, as he was presenting Rihanna with the Video Vanguard Award.
“She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old,” Drake said onstage. “She’s one of my best friends in the world. She’s a living breathing legend in our industry,” the rapper went on to add. He then embraced and kissed Rihanna, as she arrived on the stage. Drake’s claims have not been shocking at all, as the star is well-known to praise Rihanna and her musical career.
“What’s most impressive isn’t the endlessness of stats, awards and accomplishments – what’s most impressive is the person,” the rapper said. “She succeeds by being something in which no one in this industry does which is by being herself – the same girl from Barbados surrounded by the same friends. We love the videos which change their artistic vision from year to year. But most of all we love the woman who hasn’t changed from day one.”
Rihanna seemed really happy and emotional to be getting the award and she actually claimed that she is just thinking of her country and how proud they are going to be to see the award going there. “This is the first Vanguard to land anywhere close to my country,” Rihanna said. The star went on to embrace Drake once again before leaving the stage.
There is no doubt in the fact that Rihanna and Drake are very close and have been friends for years. The two are also frequent collaborators and have worked together on various occasions. They have never confirmed rumors saying that they are a couple. However, fans have immediately took to social media to share how much they would love to see the two together. It is yet to see if the dating rumors will finally be confirmed. Meanwhile, it seems that Drake and Rihanna continue to spend time together.
