International pop stars Rihanna and Cheryl Cole aren’t afraid to publicize their affection, especially the admiration they share for one another. Cole has gushed over Rihanna in the past, coining Rihanna as her number one “girl crush.” Rihanna responded affectionately in an interview with Esquire magazine, “Ooh! Cheryl Cole is…hot. I would just like to watch her work. Preferably cleaning things on the floor. Picking up stuff on the floor. Bending over.”
Cheryl Cole, a member of the English girl group Girls Aloud, has experienced twenty consecutive top-ten singles and five platinum albums. She was also a judge on X Factor for both the UK and American versions. Cole has mastered the art of beauty and success and isn’t afraid to applaud those who have done the same. Last year Cole told media outlets she desperately wanted to work with Rihanna. “I love Rihanna. I would love to do a performance with her and do a single with her. I would love to do a record with her. [Rihanna] feels the same.”
Rihanna does feel the same, concluding her interview with a final attempt to prove her admiration for the British bombshell. “She’s hot! I mean, literally… she’s so beautiful.”
Rihanna’s passionate confession is accompanied with a provocative photo shoot in the latest issue of the men’s magazine. The 24-year-old looked striking in black bikini bottoms and a crochet bikini top. The photo shoot continued with a second look: thigh high stockings, “Battleship” inspired army fatigue jean jacket, and a bathing suit bottom that gives onlookers a sneak peak of her booty.
Despite her admiration for female celebrities, Rihanna is determined to settle down in five years—with a man. “Hopefully I’ll have a man by then. I’ve gotta start there, right?”
Rihanna’s love life looks hopeful. Her and ex-boyfriend Drake were reportedly seen canoodling in a Miami nightclub. Could this possibly be her attempt to lock down the Canadian rapper? US Weekly seems to think so, claiming Drake and Rhi Rhi were holding hands and dancing very closely on the dance floor.
