Rihanna is sure happy to be leaving Australia. Another reporter tried to get the Battleship actress to open up about her love life – and she straight shut her down and ended the interview early.
Natalie Barr of Australia’s number one morning show sat down with Rihanna and it didn’t end well. RiRi was all set to talk about her first movie role and then the interview turned to rumors about her paramours. Check out the excerpts below:
Why did you want to pursue movies?
It seemed like another creative outlet that I could excel in and I didn’t know for sure but I wanted to try it. After my first experience with Battleship and working with Peter Burg I’m spoiled now. I want to do more films for sure.
Justin Timberlake moved to movies and now we supposedly know him more as an actor. Would you like us to see you more as an actor?
I don’t see why I can’t do both. If I love both then I’ll do great at both. I love music and after my first experience with movies I had such a great time that I can’t wait to do more.
On possibly playing Whitney Houston in her life movie
It will be emotional of course because she’s been someone that I looked up to for so long. Her music is something that I’m very close to so I guess it would be fulfilling as well as a lot of pressure.
How frustrating is it when you’re linked to another Hollywood star even if you’ve barely met them?
Very frustrating. Almost as frustrating as being asked about it.
You don’t like being asked about it?
I mean what’s the point?
Well, people are interested in you because you’re a big star.
They are! They’re interested in a lot of things that don’t matter or shouldn’t matter.
There is a time and a place for things, and promoting Battleship is not the time to talk about Rihanna’s love life.
