Justin Bieber Gets Rejected by Rihanna (Again!)
Poor Justin Bieber: He may be a box office success thanks to his new film, Never Say Never, but the young pop star still can't land his crush Rihanna.
The 16-year-old pop star joked about getting shot down by Rihanna, 23, at the NBA All-Star game last weekend.
"I asked her out," Justin says. "It didn't go so well, since I'm not with her. I asked her out and she was basically like, 'You're too young'."
Well, she does have a point! Rihanna is roughly six years older than the "Baby" hit-maker and any their hypothetical romance would raise eyebrows, to say the least. Besides, Rihanna has no trouble landing men: The "Rude Boy" songbird has recently been linked to Drake, Colin Farrel and Ryan Phillippe.
Us Weekly reports that Rihanna and Ryan, 36, have been secretly hooking up "for months" despitre recent reports that RiRi shot the actor down during a Grammy Awards party. Ryan was later spotted at Rihanna's 23rd birthday bash at a private house near Los Angeles.
(Celebuzz reached out to Rihanna and Ryan's reps for comment but did not receive a response by press time.)
This most recent rejection probably won't be enough to cool Bieber off of Rihanna – the young star has repeatedly asked out RiRi in the past and she has continued to turn him down.
Watch Bieber talk about his previous Rihanna rejection (and get a smooch from the beautiful singer) below.
Justin has recently been linked to Selena Gomez but apparently their blossoming relationship wasn't enough to keep him from asking out RiRi. Do you think Selena should be jealous? Share your thoughts in the comments.
