Rihanna reportedly wants to take things slow with Drake. The Grammy award-winning singer wants to make sure about her feelings for the rapper before settling down.

A source told Grazia magazine: "They're still on different pages when it comes to the relationship. Drake absolutely loves Rihanna and would marry her tomorrow if her could. He's made his feelings for her pretty clear before, and now he's done it publicly it's a real game-changer – but she's still unsure if she's ready to settle down. Friends are worried that she's previously described Drake as 'like an older brother'".

"For now things are going well between them, but those close to Drake are worried that he'll end up broken-hearted again," the insider added.

"Rihanna was a bit taken aback and quite embarrassed by Drake's speech (at the VMAs)," the source said. "Her public persona is very chilled. She's never been one for big public gestures."

Drake confessed that he is in love with Rihanna at the MTV Video Music Awards 2016 held at Madison Square Garden on 28 August in New York City. The Canadian rapper presented the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award to her at the event and talked how he first met the Barbadian beauty.

"The first time I met Robyn Fenty [Rihanna's real name] was in 2005," the 29-year-old said. "She was shooting a music video at a restaurant called Avocado in Toronto. The song was 'Pon de Replay' and the director was Little X. I was introduced to her... It's hard to believe that 11 years later we'd come together to create the visual for a song called 'Work.' Today the world knows X as Director X... 11 years later, they still know Rihanna as the one and only Rihanna."

"She succeeds by doing something which no one in this industry does, which is be herself. She's someone I've been in love with since I was 22 years old," he said. "She's one of my best friends in the world. All my adult life I've looked up to her even though she's younger than me."
