Rihanna 'single and happy'

Rihanna, 24, revealed she was single as she promoted new action movie 'Battleship' after bristling at being probed about her private life.

“I’m happy and I’m single,” she said after grumbling about the line of questioning.

The Barbadian star plays Petty Officer Cora Raikes in the new movie which pits the US Navy in a battle against alien invaders.

Rihanna revealed that she spent many years looking into space looking for other life forms when she was growing up.

“My dad used to make me sit outside on the steps all night long looking for a UFO flying by and I really used to do that for years,” she said.

But she was unable to spot anything suspicious. “I saw a falling star once and I thought yesss dad come and see one – it just darted.”
