Screen Shot 2015-08-20 at 12.52.42 PMMatt Barnes must be really smitten with Rihanna because he can’t keep her name out of his mouth. First, Barnes said he was dating Rihanna. Then Rihanna was like, “Whatchu talkin’ bout, Willis?”.

Last week in an interview with TMZ, Barnes noted that he’s friends with Rihanna.

“Rihanna’s my friend right now. So, uh, we’ll see where it goes.”

But let Rihanna tell it, she has no idea what he’s talking about. And now, here he is again, claiming that Rihanna does indeed know what he’s talking about.

Today on an appearance on The Jim Rome Show, he said:

“You live and you learn. When you’re in a situation like this and, you know, you just learn. You just got to keep stuff to yourself obviously. But the way I’m putting it right now, I’m too grown to lie, you know what I mean. It is what it is, I’m going to let this blow by like everything else blows by.”

“What can you do? At the end of the day we’re all grown-ups. Like I said, I’m too grown to be lying about stuff but life is life. You live and you learn… In life in general, there’s no need. I’m grown. My upbringing just doesn’t allow me to have that kind of stuff in it. Life, sports whatever it is I’m just about the truth. I’m always going to be me, even if you know sometimes my mouth gets me in trouble. I’m always going to be me, because I speak on things I feel passionately about. So love me or hate me I’m going to be me regardless.”

I kinda feel sorry for Barnes. Maybe he did genuinely think him and Rihanna had something going on, or could possibly have something going on? But apparently he forgot who he was dealing with. Rihanna is perpetually unbothered.
