Rihanna to Open the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards

The 6 God bought a billboard saluting his rumored girlfriend on her upcoming MTV Video Vanguard Award.

As a special surprise for the Anti pop star, Drake purchased a billboard in Los Angeles and had it inscribed with a congratulatory shout out.

Rihanna tweeted after the announcement: "Honored to take the #VMAs stage as your video #VANGUARD award recipient LIVE from NYC on August 28!" The gold medal-winning "Final Five" U.S. women's gymnastics team - Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Madison Kocian and Laurie Hernandez - also told ET that they will be making an appearance.

She shared an emoji-encrusted photo on Instagram, gushing, "When he extra [thoughtful]". The Bajan pop star will be honored at this Sunday's MTV VMAs at the Madison Square Gardens in NY.

Earlier this month, Drake professed his love for Rihanna at a NY concert.

Although the pair haven't made their alleged relationship public, Drizzy's gift certainly hints that there's love in the air.

Drake and Rihanna have been back together for quite some time now, and the two seem to be better than ever. "I'm getting my heart broken", he told the crowd after joining Rihanna on stage for their duet song Work. Drake got RiRi ready to give him that sweet, that nasty, that gushy stuff.
