Drake is a man in love, and he wants the world to know it!
While presenting Rihanna with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at last night’s VMAs, the rapper cloaked his rumored girlfriend in adoration before publicly declaring his feelings.
“She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old,” he said at the end of his speech. “She’s one of my best friends in the world. All my adult life, I’ve looked up to her even though she’s younger than me. She’s a living, breathing legend in our industry.”
As Rihanna walked up to accept the Moon Man, Drake seemed to go in for a full-on lip lock, but RiRi gave him the cheek.
However, the two shared a sweet kiss as they left the stage just minutes later, and Drake took to Instagram afterwards to celebrate his lady love’s big night.
“This is a night for us all to be thankful for what you have done for us!” he wrote. “You have affected so many of our lives in the best way possible. Tonight we celebrate you! @badgalriri.”
