Five days after Drake publicly declared his love for Rihanna at the VMAs, she’s returning the favor. The singer finally acknowledged her epic Video Vanguard Award win on Instagram, and sent her man a special message in the post. See it here!
“Your speech was so touching and I love you for that!” Rihanna, 28, wrote, specifically for Drake, 29, in a long message about her VMAs win. This comes, of course, after he revealed to thousands of viewers that he’s “loved” her since he was 22 years old!
Meanwhile, Rihanna shared a video of her incredible speech from the big night on Aug. 28, but added some more thank yous, clearly overwhelmed by all the love.
“#VMA2016 was one night that I would never forget!!” she gushed, of the night when she won the big award and performed four times. “I have the most incredible people in my life! My family, friends, loved ones, my fans, my team!!! All gifted beautiful spirits! And I’m so grateful that God has precisely and flawlessly arranged our paths to meet at each other! It’s because of you that I was able to reach this moment in my career! And it’s also because of you that I was able to pull off a night like this one, with 4 medley performances, 4 outfits, 4 hair and makeup looks, and all in 4 days of rehearsal! It was a challenge but I wanted nothing more than to give my fans a true representation of all the colors that I’m made of as an artist! My journey has been filled with growth and people who continue to inspire me! Forever grateful to everyone involved creatively, from choreography all the way to wardrobe and production. @MTV team you were a dream to work with! Thank you to the beautiful @iamnaomicampbell @therealmaryjblige @traceellisross for your kind words!”
She concluded with her message for Drake, and added, “All in all…Best night ever!!! I’m a lucky girl!!!! To God be the Glory!”
It’s been some time since the VMAs, but Ri’s been busy! She and the rapper partied into the early morning after the show, and then she jetted off to Miami with him, where they’ve been kissing and showing off their love at the club and onstage. Oh, and she even got a tattoo for her man! The love is real with these two, you guys!
