Drake pulled a Drake and put his feelings for Rihanna on display during the MTV VMAs last night.
"She's someone I've been in love with since I was 22 years old," Drake said while presenting her with the Video Vanguard Award.And that's to say nothing of the billboard he rented to congratulate her on the achievement.
And what did Drake get for all of his efforts?
Rih Rih did hug him up at the lectern. But it also looked like she turned away from Drizzy's kiss.
Twitter had some fun with all of that:
