Drake talking about Rihanna at the VMAs while she just kinda stood there blushing was the definition of #goalz.

Granted, it probably wouldn’t be feasible at a huge music award ceremony in front of the ENTIRE world, but is it too much to ask for someone to talk about us like that?

We aren’t Rihanna, so probably not.


As he presented her the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award (the lifetime achievement award, no biggie) at the ceremony this weekend, he said: "She is someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22-years-old

"What’s most impressive isn’t the endless list of stats, awards or accomplishments," he continued.

"She succeeds by doing something which no one in this music industry does - and that’s be herself."

Rihanna replied when accepting her award, "this is such an amazing moment in my career."

"My success started as my dream. And now it's not my own, its my family’s, my fans, women, black women … so many people."

Predictably, the internet / world went into meltdown and started hankering EVEN MORE for these two to get together (we’d been hankering for a while, let’s be real).

And it now appears all our dreams may be coming true, as a source seems to have confirmed the relationship.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the insider said Drake and Rihanna were “definitely a couple” and "fully dating"


"No one really knows how long they have been 'official,' they just decided to let it become a thing instead of hiding it from everyone. They're happy."

Speaking about the after party, the source continued: "They walked in together and never left each other's side all night. He was so attentive to her. His eyes were never off her.

"They were necking a lot. They would hug and he would kiss into her neck."

We REALLY hope this is true <3.
