In the star's cover story, Riri discusses a number of different topics. She revealed that she was working on a reggae album, spoke a little bit about her very private relationship with her boyfriend, Hassan Jameel; discussed her Fenty Beauty makeup and so much more. But, one of the most interesting talking points was when Rihanna discussed where her relationship with ex-boyfriend Drake stands.
Not too many years ago, Riri and Drake had an on-again, off-again relationship. But, one of the last times that we saw them with one another was when Drizzy presented Rihanna with the prestigious Video Vanguard Award at the 2016 MTV VMAs. There's where the "God's Plan" rapper raved about how much he's "been in love with" Rihanna "since I was 22 years old."
However, Rihanna is now revealing exactly how she felt in that moment. She told Vogue that the whole speech made her "uncomfortable." Riri said: "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. 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 added about her current status with Drake, "We don't have a friendship now, but we're not enemies either. It is what it is." You can read Rihanna's entire cover story here.
