Everyone watching the 2016 VMAs on Sunday night was on the edge of their seats after Drake confessed his love for Rihanna while presenting her with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. With nothing to lose, Drake went in for the kiss, and Rihanna seemingly swerved to avoid — although, from different angles, it actually appears the pair shared a quick peck before they ended up in their awkward embrace.
Of course, the internet has already begun overanalysing the whole thing to try and figure out what happened, particularly Rihanna's response to Drake's very direct declaration of love. Contrary to the onstage awkwardness, footage of the pair backstage and walking hand in hand after MTV had cut to commercial seemed to suggest they're definitely more than friends, but who knows?
Until both stars decide to publicly DTR, fans will never truly know what's up — but here are just a few of the funniest tweets from people trying to figure it out anyway.

Rihanna didn't curve Drake. When he said he loved her, she giggled & rolled her eyes. That's West Indian for: "I love you too".— Wanna (@wordsbywanna) 29 August 2016
