The VMAs couldn’t have been set up any better for Drake on Sunday. His rumored love interest, Rihanna, was set to perform throughout the night and he won the award for Best Hip-Hop Video to start the show. The only problem was that ... he wasn’t there?
Can anyone call him on his cell phone?
After announcing Drake’s “Hotline Bling” as the winner, Puff Daddy revealed the rapper couldn’t be there because he was “stuck in traffic.” Thankfully, Twitter figured out the “real” reason Drake couldn’t be there, and the answers are amazing.
Yep, he started from Times Square. Now he’s still there.
Seventeen speculated that a barrage of Rihanna ads was the real cause for Drake missing the award.
Oh, but the internet was just getting started. You know when that hotline bling, it can only mean more memes:
Last name: Ever. First name: Latest.
Drive safe, Drake.
