WORLDWIDE — Dang. Drake doesn’t have Rihanna or Nicki?? His two great loves of the decade are “so far gone.” Check out what RiRi had to say about this situation.
According to a recent interview with Vogue magazine, megastar songstress and fashion icon Rihanna offered a few words about her long-time, on-scene, in-music interest, Aubrey Drake Graham.

While Rihanna just turned 30 years of age in February, her current relationship status with the Toronto rap star might come as a surprise to some — then again, maybe not.
BET reports, “Since about last summer, it became apparent that the two former love birds were no longer a thing.”
However, Rihanna takes it a step further and points out that they’re no longer friends, either.
According to Vogue writer Chioma Nnadi, the Barbadian singer became a bit indifferent during the interview when the conversation pivoted on Drizzy.
If you’re unaware, at one point Drake and Rihanna were known as “Drihanna.” Yet, one moment in particular turned Rihanna from a giddy friend to someone nonchalant about all things “Drake.”
It was during the 2016 MTV Video and Music Awards. Reportedly, Drizzy had the honor of presenting RiRi with the prestigious Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
Before giving Rihanna the award, Drake delivered quite a flattering speech about the Caribbean singer. According to BET, he “outpoured unabashed adoration and glorification” for RiRi.
And as you’d probably guess, Rihanna’s “Navy” — her fans and followers — went absolutely crazy over Drizzy’s speech. However, Rihanna wasn’t feeling it.
RiRi wasn’t so moved by Drake’s words; she just endured standing on stage beside him as he talked — as he basically professed his love for her.
During the Vogue interview, Rihanna mentioned as follows.
“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.”

Aside from that, she revealed that her relationship with Drake has essentially downgraded from what it once was, altogether.
“We don’t have a friendship now,” she told the reporter, “but we’re not enemies either. It is what it is.”
Rihanna stepped into a different league of men after connecting with Saudi billionaire Hassan Jameel last year.
BET reports on the two as follows.
“After the two were spotted in paparazzi flicks locking lips while overseas, fans have been heart-eyed and giddy for the rumored couple ever since. She doesn’t confirm her status with Jameel, however, but just know Rihanna is floating on cloud nine after finally maintaining a suitable work and life equilibrium.”
“Even mentally, just to be away from my phone, to be in the moment, that has been key for my growth,” the Caribbean singer mentioned during the interview. “Now, when I come to work, I’m all in. Because before you know it, the years will go by. I’m glad I’m taking the time. I’m happy.”
And, for now, it looks like Rihanna’s definitely “happy” about her decisions and position in life.
