Drake definitely had a moment with Rihanna on stage while presenting her with the Video Vanguard award at Sunday night's 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. His heartfelt pledge of devotion (and love) gave the audience feels, even if it just made her roll her eyes. And when he leaned in to seemingly give her a kiss on the lips, Rih opted instead for a nice hug.

But backstage, things got even more awkward when Drizzy suffered the ultimate awards show faux pas: he stepped on the train of her long, poufy gown. As noted by Just Jared, MTV staffer Sandra_Jay's Instragram captured the moment when Drake trips, Rihanna whoops and then he does a little jumpman move to play it off.
