R&B star Rihanna has dismissed rumours she is dating her love interest from her We Found Love video, but admits she is bored of single life.
The Bajan beauty was spotted partying with British boxer Dudley O'Shaughnessy in London last month (Oct11) after striking up a friendship with him on the set of her promo and gossips claimed the pair was more than just friends, but Rihanna is adamant she is not romancing the sportsman.
She tells talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, "I'm not dating anyone right now. I'm not dating at all," but adds, "I'm not necessarily happy being single. It's not really that cool."
Rihanna hasn't had a steady boyfriend since she split from baseball star Matt Kemp earlier this year (11) and she admits her career has got in the way of her bid to find a new relationship.
She says, "My personal life is pretty much non-existent, which is not good, not for the long run... ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s why I stay on Twitter a lot. So I can conversate (sic) with my fans. Because I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get any booty calls."
When her current Loud tour wraps up at Christmas (11), she intends to make finding romance a top priority and she is setting out what she really wants from a man.
She explains, "I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have guys that are intimidated by me... I like men that are more aggressive but mysterious but I like a man to be very sure. I like them to be sure of themselves...
"IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m the lady and the only way for us to make this work is for us to play our roles. You know, I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t really be the man for you. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t want to have to be. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m the man at work all the time."
The full TV interview with Rihanna will air on Monday (21Nov11).
