But the kiss didn't last very long, as he pulled away after several seconds just before Rihanna said several words to him.  
'MTV, this is such an amazing night, it's such an amazing moment in my career,' Rihanna started off her speech. 'When I think about the Vanguard Award and receiving this tonight, all I could think of was my country. They're gonna be so proud, this is the first Vanguard to land anywhere close to my country,' she said. 
'And so, you know my success, it started as my dream. But now my success is not my own.  It's my family's, it's my fan's, it's my country's, it's the Caribbean as a whole, it's women, it's black women, so many people feel like their little piece is such a major part of this puzzle, and I have to thank you guys for supporting me over and over.
'Thank you to every director whose taken a chance on me, and a chance with my crazy ideas, there's just so much growth that has happened over the last eleven years, and I can't believe I'm receiving a Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at 28 years old.

'It's crazy. And I have so many people to thank, I mean, from the very beginning. Evan and Carl, from SRP, you guys believed in me, you brought me straight to Jay-Z's office, where I met Jay, Tata, L.A. Reid, Jay Brown, my whole publicity team, my grandpeeps, so many people, man, they write with me from day to day. 
'And my best friends, they never left me. They actually followed my a** all the way to America, gettin' on my d*amn nerves.  They here right now, just witnessing this. 
'This is a big moment. Thank you to Drake, for that amazing speech. Thank you to MTV, I had so much fun! Good night!'
The songbird then left the stage hand-in-hand with Drake, but not before appearing to share another kiss with him.

The hit-maker finished off the performance with one of her newer hit songs, B*tch Better Have My Money. 
Rihanna's final fourth performance for the night was a dramatic departure from her previous three, high-octane performances.
