For a superstar like Rihanna, having men clawing passionately at your feet for a chance to be arm — and bedroom — candy is just a part of a normal day. And even though Rihanna likely doesn’t have to chase men down to get them, she made it clear that she’s not afraid to play huntress when she publicly flirted with Philadelphia Eagles’ linebacker Mychal Kendricks earlier this month. Neither Kendricks nor Rihanna made a big deal of the flirtation at the time, but recently Kendricks finally gave a very public response to Rihanna’s come-on.
As most remember, Rihanna shot a digital Cupid’s arrow in Kendricks direction on Jan. 7 when she posted a photo of him for Twitter’s weekly #MCM (Man Crush Monday) fad with the caption, “Is it Monday? Cuz uhhhh…#MCM.”
Kendricks never publicly responded but when he appeared on “106 & Park” earlier this week, he was asked about the flirtatious tweet . Surprisingly, Kendricks appeared nervous as he claimed that nothing has been going on between he and Rihanna.
“I mean, we haven’t even been in contact. Nothing’s changed honestly,” Kendricks said.
Hosts Bow Wow and Keshia Chante refused to let up on Kendricks and pushed him to send a message to Rihanna, just in case she was watching the show.
“I’m in New York. It’s Super Bowl Sunday,” he said, before looking into the camera and adding, “Hi, Rih. How you doing?”
We’re not sure if Kendricks was just playing shy or if he’s really not one for public displays of desire, but in any case we’re sure that Rihanna has no problem taking the lead when it comes to getting what she wants.
