The year was 2016, the sun was shining, birds were chirping, and Rihanna and Drake were FINALLY maybe in love after he professed his love for her while giving her an award at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Who could forget this moment?????

MTV

Drake made the declaration of love while presenting Rihanna with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award for lifetime achievement.

He also famously took a billboard out before the ceremony to congratulate her.

But like so many other things that year, things did not go as expected for many people. Now, in the new issue of Vogue, Rihanna has broken hearts again by saying that she and Drake aren't even FRIENDS anymore.

so honored to cover @voguemagazine’s June issue! https://t.co/qNBfqf9Wkl

(She also talks about many other things that, like the fact that she is a MOGUL, are way more important. So read the whole thing!)

The Vogue cover story said Rihanna "winced" when asked about the VMA moment, which the author said "became all about [Drake]" instead of about Rihanna's award. She said she hated what Drake did, and didn't consider it romantic:

Rihanna winces slightly at the mention of the rapper’s name before her eyes glaze over with cool indifference.

“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 says. “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.”

When I ask about the current state of their friendship, her attitude is sanguine. “We don’t have a friendship now, but we’re not enemies either. It is what it is.”

People were, frankly, shook by the revelation.

Rihanna on Drake: “It is what it is" 💀

Especially about how wrong so many were about what the moment meant for the pair.

Drake took the spotlight away from something that was Rihanna’s moment so she cut him off.. her mind

💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀

Drake professed his love to Rihanna live on stage and it annoyed her so much that she went in print to state that she doesn't even consider him a friend now

Many were pissed at the rapper.

If you really think I'll stop listening to Drake because of Rihanna...then you're absolutely right

Seriously, WTF Drake????

Absolutely living for rihanna completely dismissing drake in the vogue interview. He really did make her vanguard award about himself. Fuck him for that

😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬

It’s clear to everybody but drake that Rihanna don’t want him lmao

But others still believed in Drake.

I think Drake will learn from this whole Rihanna thing and will become an even better feminist

And felt sorry for him.

Rihanna and Drake don't even have a friendship anymore...

Oh no.

rihanna being blasé about drake is probably the worst thing you could do to him
