MTV VMA 2016 hopes to be bigger than ever with performances from Britney Spears, Ariana Grande, and Rihanna among others. Rihanna is yet to confirm if she’s dating Drake. Likewise, Ariana Grande and Mac Miller must confirm their status too. Performances, drama and surprise moments are indeed heating up the awards show this year.

This year’s MTV VMA 2016 Video Vanguard Award went to Rihanna. As she headlined the opening of the awards show, she welcomed it with her greatest hits medley. Her rumoured beau Drake, on the other hand, won the first award of the night. However, he’s “stuck in traffic”. Hence, the Canadian rapper didn’t get the chance to get his award for Hotline Bling.

Both he and Rihanna have been fuelling dating rumours for years, Heavy.com noted. Drake has been very vocal about his “attraction” to the Work hitmaker. He also joined her in several shows and fans noticed their intense sexual chemistry. But, are the two really dating?

Just look at how he congratulated Rihanna for her award:

An insider revealed before, “He still loves her and never stopped. Rihanna is the one that’s been not wanting to settle down in the past. They are having fun spending time with each other. Their music together got them close again.”

Meanwhile, another celebrity couple seems to have confirmed their relationship already. Ariana Grande subtly confirmed her new relationship with Mac Miller, People Magazine reported.

During the pre-show of MTV VMA 2016, Charlamagne Tha God asked Ariana about Mac Miller. To which she promised that, she would “send [Miller] your regards”. But when Charlamagne asked Miller’s whereabouts, Ariana said: “Being supportive. It’s okay to be alone even when you have a boo”.

Dating rumours on Ariana and Mac’s started when the Problem hitmaker collaborated with Miller in 2013. However, an source earlier revealed that Ariana has had a crush on him for a long time.

Do you think Drake and Rihanna will also confirm their status during the MTV VMA 2016?
