Are They Getting That Old Thing Back? Drake Takes Rihanna To Dinner Before VMAs
At MTV’s Video Music Awards Sunday, Drake performed his latest hit, “Hold On We’re Going Home,” along with “Started From The Bottom,” and during his performance, the camera zoomed to Rihanna, Drake’s old flame, whose facial reactions appeared to be indifferent during his act. Little did we know, bad gyal Ri-Ri just had a good poker face!
According to Vibe Magazine, Drizzy took Rihanna out on a date at the Lower East Side restaurant Sons Of Essex. Unfortunately there were no photos taken of the couple at dinner, but we would have liked to see Drake use his emotive “G” on Rihanna. Feat not though, Chef Chris Coleman and patrons of Sons of Essex tweeted about seeing the old love birds together.
A new resident of the Lower East Side also tweeted:
Immediately, pop culture journalists and bloggers tweeted patrons to ask them m0re information about Drake and Rihanna’s date. Rihanna and Drake’s romance started from the bottom in 2011 but never made it anywhere — at least as far as we knew. At the time, Drake reportedly became the rebound guy for Rihanna as she tried to maneuver her feelings for Chris Brown. Drake stated of their short-lived trist in an Elle Magazine interview:
At the time it hurt, but she didn’t mean to. I’ll never put that on her. I was hurt because I started to slowly realize what it was. I guess I thought it was more. That was the first girl with any fame that paid me any mind. You spend days reading about this person in the magazines. All of a sudden you have this number-one song and you’re at some birthday party and there she is. And you’re just some naive kid from Toronto staying in some Shytety-a** hotel who got invited to this party on a whim. That’s just how it happened.
Although he receives plenty of shade for being soft, Drake appears to be genuine and sincere when it comes to love. Hopefully this time around Drake will be able to win Rihanna’s heart!
