Rihanna Gushes Over Boyfriend Matt Kemp

By Alexis Sezar on June 9, 2010

LOS ANGELES — Rihanna has found comfort at home in the arms of her boyfriend, Los Angeles Dodgers star Matt Kemp.

"I'm so happy," the 22-year-old pop star tells Elle for its July issue. "I feel really comfortable, and it's so easy. I have such a chaotic life, but at the end of the day, that is just my peace. It keeps me sane, really, talking to him and talking to my family."

Rihanna and Kemp, 25, were first introduced through friends last November. They made headlines two months later when they were photographed together while vacationing at a luxury resort in Cabo San Lucas. It was the singer's first serious relationship since her very public breakup from Chris Brown.

"A year ago, I was very confused. Because he was my best friend," Rihanna says of Brown, who was arrested for assaulting her on the eve of the 2009 Grammy Awards. "All of a sudden, one night changed our whole lives—not only our friendship, but our lives.

"I wanted to wake up one day and just not have that pain anymore. I wanted to be with him again or get over him—it was either-or. I just didn't want to feel the pain, the confusion."

Rihanna has emerged from the incident with another hit album in Rated R. With her career continuing to soar, she admits to feeling fortunate that her wishes have all come true.

"If I were in Barbados still, I would be dreaming about this," she says. "I asked for it, and I love it, so why am I complaining? My first day on tour, I remember saying 'I'm so tired—this is so much.' Then I thought, What the f---? You asked for this—you prayed to God to tour like Madonna."

Dating Alert: Rihanna and Dodgers Star Matt Kemp Get Cozy

By Alexis Sezar on January 5, 2010

LOS ANGELES — Rihanna appears to have found a new man that meets her qualifications.

The "Hard" singer has jumped back into the dating scene with Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp, the baseball star's agent, Dave Stewart, tells People.

"They've only had a few opportunities to be together, but those times have been fun," said Stewart.

Rihanna, 21, and Kemp, 25, were introduced through friends in November and an insider tells the mag, "They really like each other." They are currently vacationing together at a luxury resort in Cabo San Lucas.

"Rihanna wants the world to know that she is happy with Matt," a source told the mag.

Last month, Rihanna admitted that her taste in men usually leans towards the bad boy, a revelation that came months after she was assaulted by her ex-boyfriend, singer Chris Brown.

"Definitely the high-risk [men]. I don't like cream puff, corny guys," she told Britain's Glamour magazine when asked what she looks for in a man. "Usually they are the nice guys, the ones that won't hurt you. They'll pull out the chair for you and the whole nine yards."

"Everything is perfect and boring...I like the risk, I like the edge," she continued. "That's the thrill for me."

As for trusting men again after the Brown incident, Rihanna said that isn't a problem in the January issue of GQ.

"I can trust," she said. "I mean, I don't like to stereotype; I believe everybody's an individual. You can't judge someone based on someone else's actions. There are people in the world who will love you and people in the world who will hurt you, and there are people in the world who will do both."
