Drake Finally Professing His Love For Rihanna, to Rihanna
Drake Finally Professing His Love For Rihanna, to Rihanna
Full Story

After buying Rihanna a billboard in LA to congratulate her on receiving the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the MTV VMAs, Drake hopped on stage to present the singer with her Moonman. During his speech (which may as well have been a marriage proposal), Drake admitted that he's "been in love with" Rihanna since he was 22 years old, adding, "She's one of my best friends in the world." He went in for a kiss before the two left the stage holding hands. Later that night, Drake posted a snap of him smooching the singer via Instagram, writing, "You have affected so many of our lives in the best way possible. Tonight we celebrate you!" It was another chapter in the never-ending saga that is Drake and Rihanna's "friendship," and one that we completely ate up.

A Potential Shout-Out
Full Story

Drake does this thing during his concerts that my friends and I have dubbed The I See You Baby Girl. He gets into a contraption that takes him high above the crowd, and before launching into "Hold On, We're Going Home," Drake points out people and says things like, "I see you in the blue t-shirt," or "I see you sipping on that cocktail." It was during this part of his Would You Like a Tour? show that Drake said (no fewer than 10 times), "I see you baby girl in the [insert article of clothing here]," and we just couldn't handle how very "Drake" it was. From then on, it's been one of our favorite things to say, as well as our favorite part of his show.

Seemingly inspired by the same visuals used in the "Hotline Bling" video, Drake's most recent tour features some pretty impressive lighting fixtures. These colored balls not only changed hues throughout his set, but they also moved up and down, making for a really cool sensory experience.

During one of Drake's concerts in late August, the rapper showed off some fresh ink on his right forearm. The tattoo just so happens to be the same shark Rihanna has tattooed on her ankle.

In early August, Drake took Rihanna on a romantic date to the Toronto Aquarium, where he gave her an adorable camouflage shark stuffed animal. On Thursday, Rihanna added another tattoo to her ever-growing collection that was . . . wait for it . . . a camouflage shark.

They share an actual kiss at his concert in Miami.
Full Story

Rihanna surprised fans at Drake's tour stop in Miami on Wednesday night when she appeared on stage and locked lips with the "Summer Sixteen" rapper, officially putting any doubters of her feelings for him to rest. In videos posted by fans at the concert, the crowd goes absolutely wild after their kiss, and Rihanna wraps her arms around him. Are you melting yet? Because we're basically a puddle.

Rihanna tells Drake she "loves" him for giving that VMAs speech.

Rihanna reacted pretty coyly on stage after Drake finished his speech, but it appears his kind words meant the world to her. She posted a video to Instagram of her acceptance of the Video Vanguard Award, and the caption made sure to call out Drake, saying in part, "My journey has been filled with growth and people who continue to inspire me! Forever grateful to everyone involved creatively, from choreography all the way to wardrobe and production! @MTV team you were a dream to work with! Thank you to the beautiful @iamnaomicampbell @therealmaryjblige @traceeellisross for your kind words! @champagnepapi your speech was so touching and I love you for that! All in all....Best night ever!!! I'm a lucky girl!!! To God be the Glory! #RiRiVanguard"

Drake posts a heartfelt Instagram photo celebrating Rihanna's accomplishments.

As if his speech weren't beautiful enough, Drake posted a photo to Instagram of him kissing her cheek, with a caption that continued to sing Rihanna's praises: "This is a night for us all to be thankful for what you have done for us! You have affected so many of our lives in the best way possible. Tonight we celebrate you! @badgalriri."

Drake's endearing speech for Rihanna could pretty much double as a wedding proposal. "She's someone I've been in love with since I was 22 years old," he told the audience. "She's one of my best friends in the world. All my adult life I've looked up to her even though she's older than me." He went in for a kiss, but when Rihanna turned her head, a few people took that as proof that she wasn't into it.
