On the first quiet night Rihanna has had since last weekend (RiRi spent Sunday and Monday in New York with Drake, Tuesday and Wednesday in Miami with Drake, and will be performing tomorrow at Philadelphia's Made in America Festival), she returned to Instagram to share some words of gratitude. MTV, her team, her friends, and her fans all got heartfelt, exclamation-point-filled shout-outs. And Drake got this: "@champagnepapi your speech was so touching and I love you for that!"
I love you! For that.
The full message, below:
#VMA2016 night was one that I would never forget!! I have the most incredible people in my life! My family, friends, loved ones, my fans, my team!!! All gifted beautiful spirits! And I'm so grateful that God has precisely and flawlessly arranged our paths to meet at each other! It's because of you that I was able to reach this moment in my career! And it's also because of you that I was able to pull off a night like this one, with 4 medley performances, 4 set productions, 4 outfits, 4 hair and makeup looks, and all in 4 days of rehearsal! It was a challenge but I wanted nothing more than to give my fans a true representation of all the colors that I'm made of as an artist! My journey has been filled with growth and people who continue to inspire me! Forever grateful to everyone involved creatively, from choreography all the way to wardrobe and production! @MTV team you were a dream to work with! Thank you to the beautiful @iamnaomicampbell @therealmaryjblige@traceeellisross for your kind words!@champagnepapi your speech was so touching and I love you for that!
All in all....Best night ever!!! I'm a lucky girl!!! To God be the Glory! #RiRiVanguard
