Rihanna Thanks Drake for 2016 MTV Video Music Awards Speech: “I Love You for That”
Drake has seemingly offered Rihanna every compliment under the sun, so it's about time RiRi offered him another extremely public thank you. In a recent Instagram post, the "Sex With Me" performer did just that. Peep the heartfelt Insta-caption above.
In her post, the Bajan singer offers thanks to everyone involved with her tour de force of a MTV VMAs performance last week. She also thanked Toronto's favorite son for his heartfelt words. "@Champagnepapi your speech was so touching and I love you for that!" reads the end of Rihanna's post.
Drizzy's VMA speech for Rihanna was very touching and it was far from the first time the "Child's Play" rapper offered the pop star public praise. Just a few days before the VMAs, Drizzy put up a billboard congratulating the "Work" singer for winning MTV's Vanguard Award.
Of course, a couple doesn't need to publicly exchange thank yous and compliments for validity, and that's exactly the case for RiRi and Drizzy. But they have been more public with their affection as of late. Just last week, the pair shared an onstage kiss during the Miami stop of Drizzy's Summer Sixteen tour. If that weren't enough, TMZ reported that Rihanna got a shark tattoo to commemorate their romance. Shortly afterward, it was discovered that Drizzy got the same tattoo on his arm. If that's not love, we don't know what is.
