With the hype fading away from his publicized Rihanna butt-squeeze at this year's Video Music Awards, Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky has provided one last reflection on the jaw-dropping incident.
Rocky said despite the gossip and rumors, he had no intention of making the incident renowned.
"I didn't mean for the ass grab to be the thing. I don't fiend for fake publicity sh*t. I'm just a trill n*gga. [Laughs.] Rihanna is what I want to be, as far as having a big core following. She's very successful. She's been doing it for years. Think about it. "Pon de Replay".... So '05, '06, '07, '08, '09, '10, '11, '12.... She's got seven years in this sh*t. Shout-outs to that young lady, and hopefully, with the grace of God, seven years from now, I can say the same." (Complex)
Back in September, Rocky also touched up on the butt-squeezing moment.
A$AP recently opened the VMA Awards along with Rihanna, for his guest verse on Ri-Ri's "Cockiness (Love It)." He shocked the crowd when he openly squeezed the pop star's butt on stage. It was one of the more memorable moments of the night. "It really wasn't no idea," he told CBS Local. "It just happened." He said there was no major blowback from it and he downplayed the notion that it was a "moment" at all. '"I thought it was just one of those moments," he said. "I didn't know everyone was really talking about it." (CBS Local)
Prior to gracing the VMAs stage, the rapper revealed he merely had a business-only relationship with RiRi.
"Yeah, yeah, she hit us up," Rocky told radio personality Bootleg Kev when asked if Rihanna reached out for their "Cockiness" remix. "I got on it ASAP, it was an honor to work with her. [Did we smoke something?] Nah, I didn't get to do none of that with her yet. [laughs] Yeah man, we'll probably smoke something. She seems like a cool chick. [I grabbed a lot of Magnums from the table next to us?] I grabbed a lot of Magnums. [laughs] [Rihanna likes to get it in?] Eh, eh, I don't know about that. I've got a girlfriend now, I'ma get in trouble. [laughs] [Is Iggy Azalea my girlfriend?] Oh sh*t. [laughs] Oh, you crazy. Oh..." (Bootleg Kev)
In early September, the Harlem rhyme spitter made headlines for publicly groping the Grammy-winning singer during the awards ceremony.
Fresh off of walking the red carpet in a white ensemble, Rihanna hit the stage of the MTV Video Music Awards dressed in all red for a performance of 'Cockiness'. Ri first appeared on stage in a chair while displaying her bad gal swag before showing off a few dance moves. Meanwhile, Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky joined her on stage for a few moments while delivering his verse which was recently added to the remix. Before he left the stage, he placed a nice firm, 'Who's your daddy' grip on Rihana's azz, which probably made both Drake and Chris Brown shift in their seats uncomfortably. Rihanna wrapped up her opening VMA number by performing, 'We Found Love'. (Necole Bitchie)
