Rihanna’s ‘We Found Love’ Producer Calvin Harris Recalls Turning Her Down
Let’s be clear, Rihanna is hot. And with her unending chart reign, her brash rock star attitude and her exotic Bajan beauty, it’s no wonder that she can have her pick of men — that is, except one.
According to Entertainment Wise, Calvin Harris, the mastermind behind Rihanna’s mammoth hit “We Found Love,” recently revealed to Q magazine that Rihanna once tried to get “closer” to him, but unfortunately, he turned her down.
“It’s bad. She’s tried. She’s like, ‘Yeah, come on and hang out in my dressing room.’ I’m like, ‘Arrrgh!’ I mean, what do I say to Rihanna?” Harris revealed. “There’s nothing! She’s great, she’s … friendly, she’s nice, I see that. But. I can’t.”
Harris ultimately blames his own awkwardness for his missed opportunity with Rihanna.
“That’s my own fault because I’m really awkward around her,” he claimed.
Harris and Rihanna may not have made sweet dressing room “music” together, but things seemed a lot less awkward between the two during his Coachella set in May, when Rihanna joinded him on stage to perform their hit. And last week, Rihanna tweeted lyrics from Harris’ current hit, “Close To You,” which he retweeted.
And who knows? Maybe Rihanna will give Harris another shot and next time he won’t be so awkward around her.
But, unlike Harris, below are some other men who definitely weren’t shy around Rihanna. – nicholas robinson.
