Introducing Rihanna before her acceptance of the Video Vanguard Award, Drake confessed his love for the star. “She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old,” he said. “She’s one of my best friends in the world.” After handing her the award, Drake appeared to go in for a kiss, but it’s unclear exactly what happened. The two did walk offstage holding hands after Rihanna’s speech. Fans of the former couple were quick to respond on Twitter. “Waiting for @drake to pop that question......the internet would BLOW UP #VMAS,” one wrote. “Sooooo are they like official now!? #VMAs @rihanna @Drake,” another fan asked.
