For those of you who didn’t know, the Billboard Music Award aired on Sunday night and it was full of surprises. Performers like Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars, Miley Cyrus, John Legend, Celine Dion, Cher and money more serenaded the audience with a couple crowd favorites. There were also a number of stars who won Billboard Awards for all their hard work throughout the year. However last night, one star stood out more than all the others and that was 30-year-old rapper, Drake.
The rapper one the Billboard Music award for Top Artist and in his moment of glory he had no choice, but to bring his Young Money family up on the stage with him to accept the award. After he recited his speech and thanked everyone who helped him get to the monumental point in life, he decided to give a more personal address to one lucky lady and that happened to be Miss Nicki Minaj.
According to Cosmopolitan, the rapper was expressing how thankful he was for the help of all his collaborators and said, “I got the love of my life up here too,” in reference to Nicki Minaj, who was standing beside him.

Does this mean these two have got something going on? We can’t really tell because there hasn’t been any news on Nicki’s feelings yet. All we know is that she considers him as one of her closest friends. Although this isn’t the first time Drake has confessed his love to a musical diva at an award show. This past summer, during the Video Music Awards the rapper confessed his love to Barbadian singer, Rihanna. As reported by Elle, Drake was selected to present the 29-year-old singer her very well deserved, Michael Jackson Vanguard Award. The rapper looked very Dapper in a black and white suit, almost as if he was prepared for the occasion.
To begin his speech he gave a little summary of Rihanna’s musical background and listed some of her first hit tracks like “Pon De Replay.” He described her as a hard working woman who never forgot her roots. “We love the woman who hasn’t changed since day one,” said Drake. Some of his most heartfelt words were toward the end of the speech when discussed their years of friendship. “She’s someone…..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 looked up to her even though she’s younger than me. She’s a living breathing legend in our industry,” said the rapper. After giving his speech he handed her the award and went in for a kiss.
However, Rihanna was not having it and completely dodged all of his efforts. Poor Drake, it was definitely obvious that he had more feelings for her than she did for him. The two were rumored to have been dating not too long after his love confession at the VMAs, but the fact that Rihanna dodged his smooch on stage, we can probably assume that it was just a rumor.
