12 vital moments and talking points from last night's VMAs

Kanye, Rihanna, Kim, Beyoncé. The whole gang’s here.

1. Drake and Rihanna

Are Drake and Rihanna in a relationship? Or is he in the biggest friendzone that has ever existed?

Last night he presented Rihanna with the MTV Video Vanguard Award and gave a speech about her that was heart meltingly adorable or bone crushingly mortifying, depending on where you lie on the cynicism scale.

At one point he went to throw the lips on her, but she kind of deflected and he went for the neck instead.

There was reportedly an off-camera kiss though. Phew.

At another point it felt like he really might propose, a la Chinese man at the Olympics, but thankfully he reined it in.

He appeared in her Snapchats afterwards, posing with family members and getting ready to party.

Please God let them confirm a rock solid relationship soon. Put us out of our misery. Make us believe in love again.

2. But more importantly, just Rihanna

She performed four (FOUR) times and did push ups backstage to rev herself up. What a woman.
