Rihanna made a surprise appearance at the OVO Fest Monday (Aug. 5), without actually being in the building. The 26-year-old singer's image flashed on a big screen behind Drake during his performance of "Days In the East."
Drizzy wasn't trying to flatter Rih Rih by showing her face, he basically likened her to the devil. The image flashed in between the numbers "666," which just so happen to be written in fire.
If the devil reference was intentional, his feelings for the bajan beauty have changed since his Rolling Stone interview earlier this year. He told the magazine was Rihanna was the "ultimate fantasy" and "his dog for life."
They started popping up at dinners and nightclubs together, after the magazine issue came out.
The fire fizzled out not long after, and both quietly went their separate ways. However, the 27-year-old rapper never publicly confirmed that he and Rihanna were coupled up, or why it didn't work out.
Rihanna said in an interview that she's happy being single, yet Drake hasn't shared any wisdom on his current status. He has made peace, though — with her ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown. He and Breezy were rumored to be working on a Rihanna diss.
The story wasn't true, but it's pretty clear the Toronto rapper opted to make a solo Rihanna statement at the OVO Fest. It looks like Drizzy was the one who got burned in their relationship.
