Washington (ANI): Singer Rihanna has lost a lot of pals over the years because they became jealous of her. The 'Umbrella" hitmaker reveals that she had learnt to cope with the emotion from an early age, for she lost friends in school when they became resentful that she had won a beauty pageant. "When I was in school I had a lot of jealousy. I lost a lot of my friends to jealousy when I won a beauty pageant," Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.

And, things only got worse when she grew up, for when she signed with her record label, the 19-year old lost even more pals because of the green-eyed monster. "When I signed my record label it got worse. People were very envious," she revealed. She recently admitted that she was 'weirded out" after visiting a strip club. Recently, the 'Umbrella" hitmaker visited the place to have a glimpse of strippers, after reading a few film scripts.

The 19-year-old said that she visited the club because she was 'curious", and that she didn"t learn any dancing tips. "I went with some friends to a strip club not long ago. I went because I was very curious. I didn't learn any dancing tips," Contactmusic quoted Rihanna, as saying. "I've been reading some film scripts so I had to go to see what it's like. I was very weirded out," she added.

Rihanna is reportedly dating actor Shia LaBeouf. The couple have been dating for a few months now. The singer is obsessed with Indiana Jones star Shia, who is filming the fourth part of the action movie series with veteran Harrison Ford. “Shia and Rihanna is officially a couple. It"s the talk of the Indiana Jones 4 set," The Sun quoted a source, as saying. The pair was spotted romancing in Beverly Hills restaurant Kate Mantilini on Tuesday.

Troubled singer Britney Spears would have ruled the charts had she not turned down the chance to record superhit track 'Umbrella." American music Umbrella" hitmaker, who created the track, has admitted that Spears was offered the song before Rihanna made it a number one hit. Stewart made the revelation to British singer/songwriter Taio Cruz.

"I was working with Tricky in his studio the day he finished Umbrella. As soon as I heard it I said, 'That is a smash, I have to have it,' but he told me it was on hold for Britney," Contactmusic quoted Cruz, as saying. “He waited but Britney's people never called him back," he added. Rihanna turned the song into a chart-topping hit, holding the number one spot in the U.K. chart for an astounding 10 weeks.
