Elly Jackson of La Roux fame has recently revealed that a potential duet with Rihanna fell through after Ri was assaulted by Chris Brown. But Elly isn't too bothered about it, as she explained to NME:
"I've had three or four offers for collaborations in America. Big, big artists. Rihanna was very interested for a time. That was weird. My A&R man said, 'Rihanna's gonna call!’
"That was the last I heard of it. She didn't call! It was around the time of, er, troubles in her life. To be honest, do I really want to work with Rihanna? Not really. I'm more interested in what the phone call would be like."
