It’s not as if their whole time together on stage was a huge disappointment! Drake sweetly kissed Rihanna as he gave her the award, and they held hands as they exited the stage. As he led her backstage, he kissed her gently again. They’re not shy about their PDA anymore, are they? He bought he billboard, for Pete’s sake!
To add fuel to this fire, Drake and Rihanna disappeared for awhile before hitting up an afterparty at an NYC club later that night. The VMAs ended at midnight, but they didn’t show up to the club until about 3:15am. Were they hooking up and celebrating her big win?
