At this weekend's Video Music Awards, there were some extremely touching moments. From Beyoncé taking a stand for the Black Lives Matter movement on the red carpet to Kim and Kanye looking adorable as always, it was no surprise that there were going to be some loving moments between rumored couple, Drake and Rihanna.
According to Us Weekly, Drake presented Rihanna with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, only the most coveted award in music video history, and while he did that, he basically professed his undying love for her. Okay, not basically—he literally did.
"Captivating from day one, the iconic being that is Rihanna was already at a place where most artists only dream of going. For them, that's often the peak, but for her, that was a starting point and she has kept ascending to an untouchable level ever since. When it comes to music, she relentlessly takes over the charts with every release. When it comes to performance, they swarm in masses just to be in her presence, obviously. And when it comes to fashion and style, she makes it seem so effortless until you try to do it yourself, which is when it gets a little awkward," he said.
And this is when it gets PERFECT. "We love the music, which could change styles from album to album. 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 since day one. 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. Ladies and gentlemen, the recipient of the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award for 2016: Rihanna." Ok, brb sobbing.
