Rihanna Thanks Drake via Instagram for His VMA Tribute: ‘I Love You for That!’
Rihanna took to Instagram last night (Sept. 1) to thank her now-confirmed boo Drake for his heartfelt tribute to her at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards this past Sunday night (August 28.) At the show, Drizzy gushed about being in love and inspired by Rih since he was 22 years old as he presented her with the Micheal Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
Rih said she was touched by Drake's speech and that she loves him for how heartfelt he was in honoring her.
“#VMA2016 was was one that I would never forget!! 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 set productions, 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 @traceeellisross for your kind words! @champagnepapi your speech was so touching and I love you for that! All in all....Best night ever!!! I'm a lucky girl!!! To God be the Glory! #RiRiVanguard”.
Drake and Rihanna have already worked their way into our hearts musically, and now, we just can't get enough of their bashful chemistry as a new couple.
