Rihanna Discusses Drake Fling

She said she “definitely was attracted” to the Canadian…

Rihanna has opened up about her brief romance with Drake and admitted she had a hard time classifying the relationship.

"We weren't really sure what it was,” she explained. “I definitely was attracted to Drake, but I think it is what it is – it was what it was… We didn't want to take it any further.”

In a new radio interview, the Only Girl (In The World) singer blamed the timing – not long after her violent bust-up with Chris Brown – for the failure of the romance. “It was at a really fragile time in my life, so I just didn't want to get too serious with anything or anyone at that time.”

Following the fling, the Canadian admitted he’d felt like RiRi had played him. “She was doing exactly what I’ve done to so many women throughout my life, which is show them quality time, then disappear,” Drake said recently. “I was like, ‘wow, this feels terrible’.”

The pair, now good friends, have teamed up for Rihanna's new single What’s My Name?; the sexy video features them getting up close and personal in her bedroom, cuddling and sipping champagne.

The 22-year-old has been dating baseball player Matt Kemp for nearly a year.
