Starting on Sunday at the VMAs, the two have been practically inseparable. It began when Drake presented the “Diamonds” singer with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, and basically gushed non-stop about her.
“What’s most impressive isn’t the endless list of stats, awards and accomplishments,” Drake began. “What’s most impressive is the person. Some artists need to play a character to achieve success. Some need to downplay their own natural instincts to blend in. She succeeds by doing something that no one in this music industry does, which is being herself.”
His gushing continued, “She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old. 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.”
Yes, he said he’s been in love with her for seven years now. Not only that, but they seem to be easing their relationship into the public eye one kiss at a time.
Just last night at Drake’s tour stop in Miami, the two gave each other a kiss as Rihanna was leaving the stage. Drake even gave her a few smooches on the neck before she walked away.
