Rihanna fumes over relationship questions

Rihanna cut short a TV interview in Australia on Thursday (12Apr12) after her interviewer started to ask about her love life.

The R&B superstar has been guarded lately about romantic rumours linking her to both Ashton Kutcher and ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, who is also currently Down Under, and she wasn't impressed when Sunrise presenter Natalie Barr brought their names up in a promotional chat about her new film Battleship.

Asked if she minded all the speculation about her love life, Rihanna snapped, "It's very frustrating, almost as frustrating as being asked about it."

And when Barr pressed for more, stating that her fans would be interested, the R&B beauty responded, "They're interested in a lot of things that don't matter - or shouldn't."

She then abruptly ended the interview, which had started with Rihanna complaining of illness.

She kicked off the chat by telling Barr, "I'm a little icky... (Last night) I couldn't walk... I went straight to bed."
