Rihanna Says Single Life “Overrated”
The Roc Nation artist sat down with British TV host, Jonathan Ross, and spilled the beans on how she really felt about being single. She also dished on the type of guy she’s looking for, so keep reading to see if you have what she wants! Finally, she spoke on everyone’s favorite artists of the moment, Adele.
“Single life is so overrated,” she complained. “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.”
If you’re wondering what kind of guy she’s looking for, her demands seem pretty basic, “Somebody cool, fun, [and] funny,” she shared, insisting she isn’t actively looking.
As for Adele, Rih-Rih is a fan! “I love her,” Rihanna exclaimed. “I’m a big fan…Her last album, 21, spoke to me so much.”
What a coincidence, we do too!
Afrojack Working To Finish Album By September
Nick Van de Wall, also known as Afrojack, is in the midst of completing his debut album. So far he’s worked with some dance music All-Stars and just can’t decide what tracks to include in the final project. With collaborations with LMFAO, Flo Rida, Natasha Beddingfield, and more it’s understandable that he is having trouble deciding.
“I have the advantage of choice,” he said about the upcoming album “I can do what I want. It’s nice.” Thus far he’s only confirmed that R&B singer, Omarion would be featured. He also made it perfectly clear that this new album will stay close to his roots in his favorite genre.
“Basically it’s gonna be dance,” he said wholeheartedly. “I want to give it as much of a dance feel as possible.” His new album, which he wants to have out in September won’t have too many pop hits, he asserts. “It’s my first passion,” Afrojack says of dance music. “I like the storytelling of instrumental club tracks way more than doing pop songs.” But he does enjoy making pop music, noting he felt honored to work with friend, Pitbull, on the smash “Give Me Everything”
Afrojack is searching to find a balance between pleasing himself, his new fans, and his old. Given the way this kid is gifted with mixing, he should have no troubles finding his way in this sticky industry.
Wiz Khalifa Recalls First Date With Amber Rose
Whenever someone takes steps to move into the future, it always seems like the best time to reminisce about the past. For newly engaged Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose, the two thought it best to follow suit and filled us in on their very low-key first date.
According to Young Khalifa instead of blowing “huneds” on a swanky dinner date, the Pittsburgh rapper escorted Ms. Rose all the way to Mel’s Diner! There, they enjoyed turkey burgers and strawberry lemonade. He explained how they arrived at their subtle date night, “It was when I was moving out to L.A. and she had actually already lived there at the time and we lived in Hollywood. We were trying to find a nice little spot to get something to eat- something low key.”
Sounds pretty cool. Just goes to show you that it’s not about the money, it’s about the love.
