Rihanna and Drake have FINALLY come clean about the fact that they are, indeed, a real-life couple, but in case there was anyone on the planet that missed the memo, Drake is here to set the record straight.

The VMAs aren’t until tomorrow night (8/9c), but Rihanna (who will also be opening the show) has already won big as this year’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award recipient, which is awarded to artists whose body of work “has a profound effect on MTV culture.” To give you an idea, Britney, Justin and Kanye — who will have four minutes of free reign with the mic this year: gulp! — are all past winners, just to name a few.

Drake, for one, was beyond proud of his girl, a fact he showed to the world with the crazy gift he got her in the form of a GIANT billboard proclaiming his affection.

“When he extra!” the pop star wrote of her sign, which reads, “Congratulations to Rihanna. From Drake and everyone at Ovo” (Ovo being Drake’s record label).

We don’t know about you, but we read that as, “Rihanna, I love you and I want the world to know it!”

What a sweetheart.

We can’t wait to see these two walk the red carpet tomorrow night!
