Tyler, the Creator is giving us major flashbacks in this hilarious moment with Rihanna, but Drake won’t find it funny.
Rihanna, Tyler, The Creator, A$AP Rocky, and Janet Jackson were just some of the huge stars in attendance at British Fashion Awards earlier this week. And whenever you get that much star power in one room, there are sure to be some major moments. The internet can’t seem to get enough of the interactions between Tyler, The Creator, and Rihanna as photos emerged of them hanging out together throughout the night. The IGOR rapper seemed to have possibly revived a memorable moment between Rih Rih and Drake while presenting the “Fenty” founder with an award on stage.
Tyler, alongside Janet Jackson, presented Rihanna with the “Urban Luxe” award for her $600 million Fenty brand. The viral video shows the “Work” singer goes to accept the honor, while Tyler, The Creator lean in for a kiss, but Rihanna quickly blocks it with her hands. The moment gave us major déjà vu since it reminded us when Drake presented Rih Rih with the Video Vanguard Award at the 2016 VMA’s, and he also leaned in for a kiss that was not welcomed by the Bajan pop beauty. Rihanna had the same exact reaction, so it’s safe to assume she loves her personal space.
Afterward, Tyler posted a photo of the two backstage where he’s playfully giving the singer the middle finger, which is probably a reaction to the rejected kiss. Fans joked that she curved Tyler just like she’s been curving the Navy who’s been patiently waiting on her next album.
