Rihanna: Not Happy With The Single Life

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Rihanna’s newest single might be called “You Da One,” but it appears there’s no one in the popstar’s life right now – romantically speaking.
“I’m not dating anyone right now,” Rihanna said as she taped an appearance for Monday’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
“I’m not dating at all,” Rihanna added.
And the Barbados-born beauty said she’s not exactly pleased with her relationship status.
“I’m not necessarily happy being single. It’s not really that cool,” she said, adding she just doesn’t have the time to focus on romance.
The busy singer told Ellen she likes a guy who can handle the traditional manly-man role.
“I like men that are more aggressive, but mysterious, but I like a man to be very sure,” she said. “I like them to be sure of themselves and know that you’re 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 can’t really be the man for you. I don’t want to have to be. I’m the man at work all the time.”
The singer even got a little bold on “Ellen,” suggesting her lack of dating doesn’t do much for her between-the-sheets life.
“I do put a lot into my job — most of my time if not all of it. It definitely affects my personal life. 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.
“It’s not fun,” she added with a laugh.
Rihanna added that whole issue prompts her to hit the Internet.
“That’s why I stay on Twitter a lot. So I can conversate with my fans — because I don’t get any booty calls,” she added.
