Rihanna Gushes Over Drake and His VMAs Speech: ‘I Love You for That’
The singer took to Instagram on Friday (Sept. 2, 2016) to thank everyone for the honor — especially all the love from her new boyfriend. After the Toronto rapper declared his love for RiRi during his VMAs speech while presenting her with the Vanguard award, it seems like Rihanna is doing the same.
“#VMA2016 night 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!” she began the heartfelt caption alongside a video clip of her acceptance speech.
“[Drake] 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,” she continued.
#VMA2016 night 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
The Instagram post comes one day after the couple kissed on stage in Miami, Fla. — and basically making their relationship official. That same day, she debuted a shark tattoo on her left ankle, the same shark stuffed toy Drake had got her during their romantic date.
