Though she's been linked to her co-star Dudley O'Shaughnessy in her epic video for "We Found Love," Rihanna tells talk show host Ellen DeGeneres that she's single and "it sucks."
"I'm not dating anyone right now, I'm not dating at all," Rihanna told Ellen in an interview airing Monday, Nov. 21. "I'm not necessarily happy being single. It's not really that cool."
Rihanna does admit that doesn't really have to time to focus on a relationship either, but when she does have the time, she told Ellen, she wants a man who can take charge.
"I like men that are more aggressive, but mysterious, but I like a man to be very sure," she explained. "I like them to be sure of themselves and know that [he's] the man. I'm the lady and the only way for us to make this work is for us to play our roles. You know, I really can't be the man for you. i don't want to be. I'm the man at work all the time."
"I do put a lot into my job; most of my time if not all of it, and it definitely affects my personal life," she told Ellen. "My personal life is pretty much non-existent -- which is not good, not for the long run. Not for me, not for 'her,'" she said, pointing between her legs.
Ellen was visibly surprised by Rihanna's candidness, and the singer explained, "That's why I stay on Twitter a lot, so I can [converse] with my fans -- because I don't get any booty calls."
