While accepting an award, Drake started throwing out compliments to everyone. When he told Vanessa Hudgens she looked “incredible,” Nicki playfully got jealous, mouthing, “Excuse me what about me?!”
Then, he got a little more sentimental, saving the best shoutout for last.
“To Nicki Minaj, I’m so glad we found our way back, and I love you, and I couldn’t see it any other way,” he said, to which Nicki emphatically mouthed back, “I LOVE YOU.”
Drake has a history of publicly professing love–remember that time he poured out his heart out for Rihanna at the MTV Video Music Awards?
