The lesson we've learned in the last few weeks is that one shouldn't even attempt to ask Rihanna a question about her personal life if one wishes the interview to continue.
Just ask Australian Sunrise reporter Natalie Barr.
“How frustrating is it when you’re linked to another Hollywood star, even if you’ve barely met them?” Barr asked her, referring to Ashton Kutcher.
To which the 24-year-old Battleship star abruptly said: “Very frustrating. Almost as frustrating as being asked about it. I mean, what’s the point?”
The interview ended immediately afterward. Watch:
We sense a pattern here. Last month, she ripped into a reporter for a ballsy, even more out-of-nowhere question regarding herself and Kutcher.
“Wow, how disappointing was that question,” she said, before admitting she is single, pointedly, and asking the press to move on. Immediately.
Rihanna also snapped at a reporter at a Battleship junket this week when asked what struggles she and Brooklyn Decker have faced in real life.
“Girl, you said the key word: personal. Next!” Rihanna quipped.
Rihanna’s personal life has been all over the tabloids in recent months, due in part to her musical collaboration with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.
She says she doesn't care what people think, but obviously, these questions hit a nerve. Should reporters leave her be? Or should she lighten up?
