Many famous men have deemed Rihanna their celebrity crush, few of them have actually tried to shoot their shot and failed. But among the few is Chris Rock who confessed in his new Netflix special, “Tamborine,” that he tried to holla at Rihanna once and, well, it didn’t work out.
According to Page Six, Rock explained his attempt saying he went up to Ri Ri, like, “How you doing Rihanna?” The response? “Rihanna looked at me like I was one of her aunts. She didn’t even register me as a d-ck-carrying member of society. Like, I would have had an easier time f-cking Aretha Franklin.”
The 53-year-old comedian did make it clear that he tried to shoot his shot with the singer after divorcing his wife in 2016. But from the look on his face when he passed Rihanna at a benefit event for Malawi at the United Nations in 2008, he’s wanted to approach the 30-year-old budding beauty mogul for quite some time now.
Nevertheless, Rock seems to have found love in another hopeful place — the arms of 34-year-old actress Megalyn Echikunwoke. Rihanna is also rumored to be boo’d up with the son of a Saudi auto mogul so there’s literally no love lost.
