LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Rihanna’s dating life is known to make just as many headlines as her music, as well as her blossoming movie career – but the star tells Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson that’s she’s single.
“I am a bachelorette,” the 24-year-old revealed at the “Battleship” junket in Hawaii.
“Still eligible?” Shaun asked.
“Yes,” the singer-turned-actress said.
So what does Rihanna want in a potential beau?
“A guy that smells good,” she explained. “If I see you and look good, chances are you won’t turn my head. I will look away… but if you smell good, I will whip my neck around! [A guy] can’t leave until I figure out what [he’s] wearing.”
Luckily for future men in the superstar’s life, she’s about help out guys who might not smell up to par.
“I am making my own male fragrance,” she told Shaun. “I want dudes to smell like [when] you wake up, you know that smell… their cologne is a little bit old… you spray it on their jackets and take it with you just to keep them there, that it smells cozy and it smells sexy.”
When it comes to her big screen debut, the star was a bit rattled upon hearing herself.
“I hate to hear myself speak,” Rihanna explained. “Especially because I was speaking in an American accent… but I guess I’ve always been like that. I hate to hear myself speak, so now it’s a whole different thing. I have to get used to it.”
Rihanna also cleared up recent remarks she gave to Rolling Stone, where she stated she liked being submissive, at times, in a relationship.
“I think, not all women, because I can’t speak for all women, but girls like me, women like me – we’re into that,” she explained.
Adding, “Not like we have to be submissive. We can totally take charge of the relationship. We just let them wear the pants. We let them borrow the pants, so that they can feel good and in turn we feel better.”
“Battleship” – with Taylor Kitsch, Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgard and Brooklyn Decker — blasts into theaters on May 18.
