Rihanna reportedly has the hots for rapper A$AP Rocky.

The 24-year-old ‘We Found Love’ hitmaker – who has recently been linked to Ashton Kutcher and ex-boyfriend Chris Brown – apparently flirted wildly with the 23-year-old star at Coachella last weekend.

According to reports, Rihanna spent the evening drinking with A$AP in the VIP area of the Californian festival, following his performance on Saturday night (14.04.12).

A source told The Sun newspaper: “Rihanna took a real shine to A$AP. She couldn’t take her eyes off him. She hung around after his set to chat to him and seemed to be a big fan.

“They were getting stuck into champagne with mates before moving on to rum — they even asked a lackey to get ginger beer as a mixer for it.

“Rihanna asked A$AP about his gold teeth, joking that she’d love to get the same thing done.”

The singer admits she has trouble when it comes to finding a man who can cope with her career - although she hasn't given up hope.

She said: "I feel like it's hard for everybody! I don't think it has anything to do with being famous. There's just a major drought out there.

"I guess I'm challenging, because my job seems to affect every relationship I have or try to have. Even with people I think should get it.

"That seems to be a big factor; it's always an issue. But I just need to find the person who balances me out, because then things like my schedule won't matter. I've done it before, so I know I can do it again." - Bang Showbiz
