"Things are different this time between them for the better. They want to make this work this time with each other."

Presenting the Work hitmaker with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the VMAs, Drake said: "She's 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. She's a living, breathing legend in our industry, ladies and gentleman, the recipient of the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award for 2016, Rihanna."

On Instagram a few days later, Rihanna shared a picture of them together and wrote: "VMA2016 night was one that I would never forget...@champagnepapi your speech was so touching and I love you for that!"

#VMA2016 night was one that I would never forget!! I have the most incredible people in my life! My family, friends, loved ones, my fans, my team!!! All gifted beautiful spirits! And I'm so grateful that God has precisely and flawlessly arranged our paths to meet at each other! It's because of you that I was able to reach this moment in my career! And it's also because of you that I was able to pull off a night like this one, with 4 medley performances, 4 set productions, 4 outfits, 4 hair and makeup looks, and all in 4 days of rehearsal! It was a challenge but I wanted nothing more than to give my fans a true representation of all the colors that I'm made of as an artist! My journey has been filled with growth and people who continue to inspire me!

And Rihanna, 28, also recently got a tattoo tribute to Drake.

She had a camouflage shark etched on her ankle, and the design is said to be a permanent reminder of a date they went on last month. Drake took Rihanna to an aquarium in Toronto and bought her a toy shark as a souvenir, so she decided to have the tattoo as a permanent reminder of the trip.

According to TMZ, the former Degrassi star also got a tattoo. The We Found Love singer's usual tattoo artist Keith 'Bang Bang' McCurdy etched the couple with their new inkings, and shared a picture of Rihanna's artwork on Instagram.
