Published May 03, 2018Rihanna and Drake have often teased fans and the media with their will-they-won't-they maybe-not-just-on-camera romance, but according to the RiRi, the pair aren't even really friends right now.
In a new interview with Vogue, Rihanna reflected on her MTV Vanguard Award — and Drake's incredibly awkward profession of love for her during the presentation of said award (to which she responded with a dab and then dodged his kiss).
"The VMAs is such a fan-focused awards show, so having that energy around me, and knowing the people who had received the award in the past, made it feel like a big deal," she said. "Waiting through that speech was probably the most uncomfortable part. I don't like too many compliments; I don't like to be put on blast."
She went on to quash #Aubrih shippers' hopes by admitting that she's not on particularly friendly terms with Drizzy these days.
"We don't have a friendship now," she told Vogue. "But we're not enemies either. It is what it is."
It sounds like a far cry from the glory days of the pair's rumoured romance that culminated with a Ripley's Aquarium-inspired tattoo back in 2016.
