It really doesn’t get any cuter than this! In a BEYOND precious public display of his love, Drake, 29, put it all out there for Rihanna, 28, when he erected a giant billboard for Rihanna as a way to congratulate her on being the 2016 recipient of the VMAs prestigious Vanguard Award — is anyone else swooning yet?
And even sweeter, Ri Ri TOTALLY appreciated the heartfelt tribute. In fact, she’s downright giddy over it! “It’s really hard for Rihanna to shake Drake, especially when he goes out of his way to do something so sweet and on the highest magnitude possible,” an insider revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “His congratulatory Billboard is epic and one for the ages.”
We could not agree more! His message, a black billboard with fancy white writing on it that reads “Congratulations to Rihanna from Drake and Everyone at OVO,” is truly legendary — and you better believe Rihanna is feeling super special right now! “That’s the sweetest thing any man’s ever done for Ri. She’s still in shock and has been being all giddy about it since it’s gone up,” our source dished.
“She certainly appreciates the gesture and once this weekend cools off she’s going to personally, like really really personally, thank Drake and talk to him about what they want to do now that she believes he’s interested in her and wants more.” Wow! So it seems like Drake’s grand gesture is most definitely a game changer!
