Does Rihanna Love Dodger Dogs?

After a mega-year in 2009 featuring a platinum album, “Rated-R”, performances on the biggest live event and media stages in the world, and a never-ending stream of amazing-bodied photo spreads, Rihanna appears to be starting off 2010 with a possible new love-interest in All-American dream beau, Matt Kemp, of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The freshly minted power couple were seen together at Rihanna’s NYE performance in the United Arab Emirates, and this past weekend, spotted rubbing noses in a Mexican vacation destination.

Of course, this week alone has shown the fragility of celeb-athlete relationships, with the Kate Hudson-Alex Rodriguez relationship split, but we have a good feeling about this one. 

And we hear Kemp isn’t much of a hitter.
