In a new interview, Rihanna’s “We Found Love” cohort, Calvin Harris, reportedly jokes about a very awkward encounter he had when the songbird tried to get close to him.
Via Entertainment Wise, in an upcoming interview with Q magazine, Harris shares that Rihanna once tried to get more friendly with him, by inviting him into her dressing room, but it didn’t really work out.
“She’s tried,” he reportedly told Q. “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 ultimately missed his chance to hang with Rihanna due to his own nervousness. “She’s great, she’s well friendly, she’s nice, I see that,” he said. “But, I can’t. That’s my own fault because I’m really awkward around her.”
The duo shared the stage at this year’s Coachella festival without any apparent awkwardness. During Calvin’s set, Rihanna (who was not expected to show up) announced her arrival at the festival with a series of tweets and racy Instagram pics, and on Sunday night she joined him to perform her hit single “We Found Love.” The two seem to be fine platonic friends. Rihanna recently tweeted a line from Harris’ “Feel So Close” which he retweeted.
