Rihanna Sexting Colin Farrell: How Could This Go Wrong?

by Leslie Pitterson

Drizzy who?

While Rihanna and Drake’s recent duet appearances have had rumors flying, apparently our favorite Bajan has her eyes on another star.  According to The Sun, Rihanna has been sexting back and forth with notorious ladies man Colin Farrell.

The rugged Irish actor, who plays a bad boy with a five o’clock shadow in nearly all his films, is apparently loving playing the rude boy role with the singer. Sources told The Sun, “Colin was taken aback by some of the texts. He reckons he might well be in there. They’re both single, so why not?”

He may have been taken ‘aback’ but he shouldn’t be surprised.  Last year, sparks flew when the two stars met at a taping of The Graham Norton’s BBC talk show.  Colin complimented Rihanna on her dress noting that it left her ‘limbs’ on display.  After some time, Colin later elaborated on his compliment saying,

“They are very nice limbs. There’s probably a reason I mentioned them, I had to get them off my mind.”

Yeah Colin, you and everyone else with sight.  The two have made plans to see each other more, when they cross paths in Los Angeles later this month.  And while it will be interesting to see where this fling goes, we’re a little hesitant to throw our support behind RihRih’s latest choice.

While Colin is certainly on our list of blue-eyed soul candy, he does come with his fair share of baggage.  The actor recently split with his ex, actress Alicja Bachleda-Curu.  Though separated, the two have a young son together.  And let’s put it this way, this man is no Robin Thicke.

Personally, I’ll say the news of this budding relationship has been a refreshing break from the are-they-aren’t-they storyline between Rihanna and Young Money’s poster child, Drake.  Between Drake’s prolific conversation on the ‘almost’ romance and the rumor mill, it was getting to be a bit much.

Looking at the profiles of the men she falls for, Rihanna clearly has a type.  We’re all guilty of going for the guilty pleasure, but rarely does the repeat offense lead to the stable type.  Then again, few women have managed to turn sexting into a long-term love so maybe that just not what she’s looking for.  Hey, sometimes a girl just wants to have fun.

While we’re a little weary of Rihanna going for yet another bad boy type, we have to admit, the two would make a pretty hot couple.  But its hard to believe this could possibly lead to a good place for the singer.  Ladies, what do you think?

    She is young, I say have fun. Hell let me get a piece of Colin and trust me that’s all I would want, lol.

    She’s young and beautiful…she has time to go through all of this: bad boy phase, not dating seriously, etc. I support her flaunting her femininity and being a young, hot, single woman.

    He’s just plain hot, and my fantasy–so she better go for it.

    GO RIHANNA.. go have fun! guys shouldnt be the only one!

  • bosslady

    I don’t like the part in the article “this man is no Robin Thicke.” Eeeerh, what does he have in common with Robin Thicke apart from the obviously being their race, they’re not even the same nationality!! Sounded a little ignorant, there’s MILLIONS of white men in the world #I’mjustsaying
    I’m not particularly a Rihanna fan, but they’re both hot and clearly Rihanna is only looking to have fun with him, so go ahead girl!!

  • EmpressDivine

    Publicity stunt….the only real question is it for him (movie), her (album), or both.

  • Wendy

    I agree! Guys shouldn’t be the only ones to have all the fun! Live it up Rihanna! :)

    isnt “having fun” the same thing these chicks are doing that end up with like 7 baby daddies?

    just sayin..lol

  • cherbear

    Ummm…I mean Farrell is hot but…

    Oh well, her life not mine. Go for it Rihanna. Just wear some rubber my dear.

    Who Rihanna is romancing is her business and her business alone…she’ll do her thing regardless if people support it or not. I don’t understand the reference to blue eyed soul singers… like they’re the only approved white men. Seriously?!

    She’s a grown woman who can and obviously will date who ever meets her fancy like anyone should. Lets mind are business and keep it moving. I honestly believe that people are becoming too invested in the private lives of celebrities. *kanye shrug*

    ^ there’s a difference between having fun and being irresponsible…

  • Rani

    eewwww he is like 34 and she’s 23 talk about age difference

  • S.

    ^Right! What is with these irrelevant gossipy topics lately???

  • Leah

    I don’t get what’s so interesting about this chick! It’s gotta be the name brand and marketing. I’m sure her promoters are awesome.

    Talent-wise, this chick is more than lacking and her so called, edgy “fashion” often makes her look ridiculous and clueless (like that dayum clown wig she’s now sporting–who the hell told her that looked good? Chick looks like Sideshow Bob or Ronald McDonald’s sister). To be honest, without all the flash and underneath all the makeup, she’s average looking at best. So, can someone please explain to me, why the hell this chick (or anything that she does) is still relevant?

  • Love child

    I think the author was making reference to the fact that both Colin and Robin are called blue eyed soul brothers, yet Robin is more stable and focused, than Colin who has a reputation of being a bad boy!!!!

  • snickerz

    Colin has brown eyes…

  • http://pertheblog.blogspot.com Tracie

    Im not feeling it, I would preferred her with Drake, but it’s her life. I think Collin is bad news…but then again she is one “Situation” from being bad news herself in my opinion.

    Not to mention, her hair is HORRIBLE!

  • kesha

    i’m not going to knock her. If I had a chance with Collin, I’d be all over that!

    LOL how are you gonna frequent a website that sometimes talks about celebrities,click on the article,read it and then tell OTHER PEOPLE that they need to mind their own business?

    come on now!

    you know what. you have just inspired me to make a youtube video: )

  • Ally

    Who gives a damn.

  • http://noirmuse.blogspot.com/ Caribbelle

    ^^^ just as easily as you described it. who she sleeps with is her business and I cast no judgment on her because of it. glad to be of inspiration.

  • Angela

    That episode of the Graham Norton show was funny, especially when Rihanna starts pointing out several of her tattoos to Daniel Radcliffe and Colin Farrell. BTW, Colin Farrell did check her out a little but it didn’t seem like a big thing.

  • Trav

    Unfortunate that people excuse her behavior by saying she’s young, it’s Colin, etc… Our young daughters (African-American) have become some straight little whores/hoes in part because of this type of behavior being model by celebrities who they try to imitate. The rate of STD infection in the US among teens is the highest among African-American females. Do the research. And I am certain Colin has no problem contributing to this epidemic.

    But it’s all about being young, sexy, and rich right?!?! So much for self-respect.
