Rihanna Clarifies Her Relationship With Drake on 'Ellen'

Fresh off the release of her new album AntiRihanna stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday to chat about her upcoming Anti World Tour, defend her love of Hot Cheetos, and play a cunning game of Never Have I Ever with George Clooney.

That last segment got particularly interesting when Ellen asked her guests if they had ever texted a nude selfie. When Clooney flashed the "I Have Never" side of his paddle, Rihanna pounced on him, teasing, "Yeah right, George!"

After the game, Ellen made a point to ask Rihanna about her dating life, which does not, to Ellen's apparent disappointment, involve "Work" collaborator Drake. And though he's not currently scheduled to appear on tour with her as Ellen had hoped, Rihanna admitted she would "love to go on tour with Drake. That has to happen."

Of her current relationship status, Rihanna explained, "I'm single right now and it's not that I'm like, 'Oh, pro-single, yes, I hate men!' I just think I have so much on my plate that I can't even find the time to entertain a steady relationship or anything serious. Or even a text."

For the record, she did, however, answer in the affirmative about having texted a nude selfie.
