Watch: Drake awkwardly tried to kiss Rihanna at the VMAs last night but was denied

Fair dues to Drake.

It takes a lot of guts to stand up and proclaim your love for a girl in front of the whole world. The rapper was presenting his collaborator (and rumoured girlfirend) Rihanna with the VMAs Vanguard award.

In a touching speech, Drake said that Rihanna was: "someone I've been in love with since I was 22 years old. She's one of my best friends in the world. All my adult life, I've looked up to her even though she's younger than me."

However it was his actions after his profession of love that will be most remembered. As he presented Rihanna with the award he leaned in for a kiss which was swiftly avoided by the 'Work' singer with a deft tilt of the head and a peck on the cheek. Ouch.


Ooh that is painful. Rihanna seems to utter the line 'That wasn't funny' as the two parted so it's clear she wasn't all that impressed with the move.
