Rihanna SINGS Adele's Praises, Takes A Break From Music & Says "Single Life Is Overrated" + Nicki Minaj & Ricky Martin For Viva Glam!

​ ​ ​ ​

Battleship star Rihanna (shown above on the movie's Italian promo) recently sat down with London's "The Jonathan Ross Show" where she sang the praises of Adele and admitted that she thinks "the single life is orrated." Get the deets inside.....

It seems as though Rihanna is ready to move on to a new relationship (and a new career focus) as she was recently quoted talking about how much she hates being single.

On her taped "Jonathan Ross Show" appearance in the UK this week (airing tomorrow), she said,

"Single life is so overrated. It sucks. I have such incredible experiences in my life. You don't want to live your life and then meet someone. You want to share your life with someone. That's what I'm missing right now."

So what type of man is she into? She said she wants someone who is "...cool, fun, funny."

And Rihanna also stanned for Adele (don't we all?) during the interview.  She said,

"I saw her at the Grammys and I love her.  I'm a big fan. … Her last album, 21, spoke to me so much. It was so personal to her, but I feel like everyone in the world identified with it, to the point that I had to stop listening because it was depressing me so much. If you identify with it, sometimes you don't want to hear about it."

But while she is searching for love, Rih will give music a break focus on her acting and other projects, saying:

'I just want to pick films that are wise for me and roles that I can pull off, nothing that is too big for me."  She added, 'I love doing movies now. It's something I want to do more of."

Rih just flew back to L.A. from London last night.

Catch Battleship when it's released on May 18 in the US!

 

BONUS:

Ricky Martin and Nicki Minaj were recently unveiled as new faces for MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam worldwide.  Now check out their official promo poster above.

Average voice or not Adele is

Average voice or not Adele is kicking all of those chicks azz on hte charts Rihanna's included and she knows it. She needs to take a break from music for a bit releasing a dam CD every other eight or nine months is over doing it. Adele sings with emotion/passion something some of these mediocre chicks know nothing about.

Rihanna is told what to do by

Rihanna is told what to do by JAYz. Jayz is going to now push the new chic he has so Rihanna of course has to step down this s no choice of her own so I don't know why she on there lieing. Anyways I personally don't mind her stepping away been tired of her...the music biz can do w/out her trust me, she added nothing. Again this is good news! for the ppl who always complained abt her
BITCHBYE's picture

oh please rihanna's label is

oh please rihanna's label is def jam, Jay z is just her manager, she could fire him if she want to, and go back to the management that was successful for all of her successes. Didn't she just hire roc nation last year. Jay z can't even manage his own wife' s career good, cause since he took over from beyonce's dad she started to do worse than before. Rihanna was doing him a favor by hiring him and keeping it in the family, since he and her are close, but if he starts messing with her money, she could drop him like a bad habit real quick. And the kind of girl rihanna is, i know she wouldn't hesitate to do it.

You're clearly a delusional

You're clearly a delusional rihyodel stan. Jay made rihanna and he can break her. Nobody was checking for her until she did umbrella with him. He dont care about her. She just puts money in him and his wife's pockets. As soon as rihyodel stops making him money she's off rocnation. He already promoting that new girl rita who is way more talented than rihyodel. And fyi jay doesnt manage bey career. And bey made history by performing at glastonbury and "love on top" is #1 and "4" was #1 for 2 weeks straight so bey career will always be fine because she's already an icon. Rihanna cant even get a #1 album after 6 tries lmao. Scandals and hair changes are what keeps her relevant.

Obviously you're a daft beyokey stan because that baboon booty chick is NOT an icon! More like an icod. Neither her drug dealer husband and their Roswell mexican/alien/marijuana baby blue poison ivy will reach that status unless it's through illusion...oh wait. Lace fronts, off-key yelling (I meant "singing"), and glittery, adult onesies is what keeps her relevant.

Rihanna's break from music is

Rihanna's break from music is definitely well-deserved. She has been very successful and it is important to capitalize on other endeavors while she can. I look forward to seeing her in films and wish her the best. And I hope she finds the genuine true love she wants because she deserves that as well.

Did you really just say

Did you really just say that?International d*ck... So she is supposed to sleep around or be with someone because of their looks and celebrity status? I'm almost certain she can have whoever and she knows this, but obviously she is looking for something more than an occasional hookup. Maybe her and CB have alot in common and just b/c he is in a relationship does not change the fact that he was kickin it with her around the Grammys and the music says it all. The heart wants what it wants and only CB amd Rih-Rih knows how it will play out.

Also agree that Adele's voice

Also agree that Adele's voice is average to me as well. I am not knocking anybody for liking her music, but when I first started hearing everybody raving about her I though she was the next best thing. I listened to a few of her songs and was not moved. Rihanna, single life may be overrated but at least you ain't laying up in the ER because of "love".

Maybe gospel singers have

Maybe gospel singers have spoiled my ears because Adele's voice is tragically AVERAGE to me. She is a good writer, but people are acting like she has one of the greatest voices of all time and iiiJust can't rock with that. Kudos on the success nonetheless. But about Rihanna, while a break is well-deserved, will the time off fizzle out the lightning in a bottle success she's been experiencing of late? Time will tell. Good luck either way. NARF!!

I don't think she has the

I don't think she has the greatest voice of all time, but I adore her. It's like listening to Bob Marley. You don't expect him to do riffs like Whitney or Beyonce, but you are moved when you hear his music. Sam Cooke's song A Change Gon' Come, makes me cry almost every time, and he wasn't doing anything outstanding w/ his voice. Some people just have a sound that entrances people and carries emotions better than others with "perfect" voices.

how is wanting to share your life and experiences with someone you love, showing that you need a man to validate you? She's like any other individual who wants to have a relationship. No one is meant to be alone, that is why God created woman for man, and vise verse. She has been without a man for about 2 years now, so wanting to be in a relationship is not that far fetched.

what is wrong with having an

what is wrong with having an accent in a movie. Its a movie about a navy ship. I know there are plenty of people in the armed forces with an accent, so her having an accent is a plus cause there are people from all different backgounds on a naval ship. Accents never stopped penelope cruz, antonio banderas, cicely tyson and sidney poitier ( the last two west indians like Rihanna) and two of the most celebrated and respected actors. So if rihanna does good in this movie, theres no telling where she could go . I'm rooting for her.
anonymous's picture

girl her acting is horrible

girl her acting is horrible based on the trailer i saw. i was like wth. You can still hear her accent but besides that the acting isn't good.
Anonymous's picture

you must be crazy,. Rihanna

you must be crazy,. Rihanna came off very real and believable in the trailer for the movie. Plus she got high marks from the director saying she's a natural. So look forward to seeing rihanna again. I always knew, based on her videos that she could be a good actress. Her acting in man down, and we found love show that there is something there. The girl have so many options available to her its not funny. she's truly blessed. From her singing, to movies, to her fashion show, designing clothing with armani, to her perfumes. Rihanna's empire is growing, so if she never put out another album, she'll still be set for life. Look at Jessica simpson. Its possible. I am so proud and happy for this young lady.

Well if he thought that she sucked he didn't Even have to mention her acting skills. He could have easily said he'd leave it up to the audience to judge. But he didn't he went into great detail about how great she was and how far she was willing to go with her acting.

Ummm, Rihanna is very well

Ummm, Rihanna is very well spoken in person and in her interviews. You must be talking about beyonce because she don't know how to hold a live conversation nor speak in public. Have you heard bey try to speak w/o being prep first. She has a vocabulary of a 3rd grader It's really tragic and painful.

Bish bye you're a delusional

Bish bye you're a delusional rihanna stan who is obsessed with beyonce. There is nothing wrong with the way beyonce speaks. At least she has never said "conversate" in an interview like rihanna dumb-ass lmao.

I hope you aren't trying to

I hope you aren't trying to say that just because someone has a native accent, means they can't speak well. Because to me, rihanna speaks very well, even with her accent. So I don't know what you are trying to say. Looking at the trailer of the movie, I think she will do just fine. Sometimes some roles call for an accent, so if the director saw no problems in using her, then kudos to her and I look forward to seeing her in many more roles to come.
anonymous's picture

Lol the irony, you're

Lol the irony, you're correcting someone and soundign worse than them. "NATIVE accent"? Really? She speaks in halting and dull monotonous tone. So I can see why someone would say she doesn't speak well. It has nothing to with the accent. I have a similar accent (I'm Caribbean) and I know people don't have any problem understanding me. I generally can't imagine her acting anyway. But we'll never know until we see, ya?
xoxo's picture

Why don't you shut your rass.

Why don't you shut your rass. I am caribbean too, that is why i took offense to the whole she can't speak well bull shit. Rihanna speaks very well. I didn't know that speaking halting and dull mean you can't speak well. There is nothing dull about the way rihanna delivers. You obviously hate her that is why you are going out of your way to voice your stupidity. People probably don't have a problem understanding you because you out there fake yanking. At least rihanna is keeping her accent to the front and center and being sensible enough to slow down and enunciate her words so that people can get what she's saying. And for those idiots asking what is a native accent. Its the accent that's native to where you're from. And in rihanna's case its the bajan accent. native to barbados. Antiguan accent- native to antigua- jamaican accent - native to jamaica- british accent native to england, you get it now?

What is a "native accent"

What is a "native accent" lol. Is Rihanna from native?

read above since you guys

read above since you guys obviously haven't been well schooled to know that there is such a thing as a native accents. Some of you are so dense and specialize in one thing trying to diss people on the web. Go pick up a book and learn something instead of being mean and nasty and don't have a lick of sense.
