Calvin Harris Turned Down Rihanna: ‘She Tried To Get Close, But I Couldn’t’
Rihanna is one of the hottest stars on the planet but for some reason is single and we can never explain why? Until now a producer Calvin Harris has claimed he turned down an invitation “to hangout” by the star because she she made him “awkward”.
Harris worked with the Bajan beauty on the track ‘We Found Love’ but couldn’t handle it when the 24 year-old tried to turn friendly and claimed that she “tried” to get close to him but that he just couldn’t.
He told Q magazine: “It’s bad. She’s tried. 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?
“There’s nothing! She’s great, she’s well friendly, she’s nice, I see that. But. I can’t.”
Calvin blamed himself and said that he was just too awkward around her to get more friendly.
“That’s my own fault because I’m really awkward around her,” he claimed.
The star was pretty nervous the entire time he worked with the star and recalled when he first played her record bosses the track: ‘I remember that it was very loud,”
“All the label were sat there. I just remember thinking, ‘I hope all these f**kers like it. I hope they understand what it is.”
The pair obviously got on better than Calvin thought as the ‘You Da One’ star joined him on stage during his DJ set at the Coachella Festival in the US in May.
She appears to be a fan of his as well, tweeting lyrics from his hit ‘Close To You Right Now’ yesterday. (July 26)
