Drake is quite the wordsmith isn’t he? The Views artist absolutely gushed over Rihanna while presenting her with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award on Aug. 28 at the VMAs — leaving her feeling like a ‘queen,’ HollywoodLife.com is EXCLUSIVELY reporting.
What a night it was in New York City. Rihanna, 28, looked absolutely exquisite. She was dressed to impress in her breathtaking champagne colored gown as she gracefully walked the stage to accept her award from Drake, 29. He too looked scrumptious in his classic black tuxedo. But it wasn’t the award nor Drake’s attire that made Ri giddy. It was actually Drizzy’s profound and sentimental words that truly spoke to the ANTI artist and even touched her heart and soul.
“Little Aubrey outdid himself last night. Rihanna was shocked, moved and felt like an absolute queen by the way Drake showered her in endless compliments,” a source closely connected to the “Work” singer told HollywoodLife.com. “It was mesmerizing. Truly impressive and Ri couldn’t have asked for a more fitting person to present her with her award.”
Drizzy and RiRi are enjoying their little love affair but everyone’s not happy with this situation. Just ask Ri’s ex Chris Brown, 27. His boys told us the “Grass Ain’t Always Greener” singer is feeling some type of way because he wasn’t the one presenting her with the coveted award. “Michael Jackson is Chris‘ idol and Rihanna is his heart,” another source EXCLUSIVELY revealed to HollywoodLife.com. “If he could go back in time, Chris would move heaven and earth to have presented her with the award.”
Better luck next time, Breezy! HollywoodLifers, what say you? Did you like the epic speech Drake gave to Rihanna?
