The woman you see above is V. Stiviano. You might not recognize her, since she isn't wearing her signature bee-keeper visor. Donald Sterling's ex-girlfriend may have fallen out of the everyday 24-hour news cycle since the Sterling controversy has died down (and the Clippers were sold), but Drake was kind enough to make V. relevant again on Wednesday night by proclaiming her the "side piece of the year" during his performance of "Side Pieces" live at the ESPYs.

So how did Stiviano react to Drizzy's performance?

She told TMZ the shout out was "a very big compliment," right before she left Villa Blanca in Beverly Hills and got into a Volvo. Swag.
