Rihanna hires 'sky scanner' to track UFOs

The best-selling singer is believed to have held a life-long fascination of the UFO phenomenon.
According to reports, Rihanna has hired a "sky scanner" based at the famous Little A'Le'Inn near Area 51 in Nevada to keep her apprised of the latest UFO reports and sightings. The popular motel is a prime destination for tourists looking to explore the region that has become synonymous with UFOs thanks to its proximity to the enigmatic base.

According to reports, Rihanna has more than a passing interest in the phenomenon and believes that we are likely to be visited by an alien civilization within her lifetime. "My dad used to make me sit outside on the steps all night long in Barbados looking for UFOs flying by," she said. "I had to do that for years. I didn't see any, but I saw a falling star once and I was like: 'Yes, Dad! Come and see!"

Rihanna is one of several well known celebrities to have shown an interest in UFOs. Another notable example, British singer Robbie Williams, claims to have personally seen a UFO on three separate occasions and has spent a lot of time investigating the phenomenon.

If Rihanna wants to spend more money, I'll keep watch over my house!

A fool and her money - of course if you're the guy that the fool is dropping the money on, that's awesome.

So her dad used to make her sit on the steps looking for ufo's. She's hardly interested in them at all.

OMG!! Why doesn't she just hook up with a Senator on one of the various Committees that would know about that stuff? Hiring a guy to sit in the desert is going to be slow and expensive. A Senator would actually spend money on HER and tell her lots of juicy secrets.

She did a radio ad over here to promote Battleship when it was in the cinemas, I could barely understand a word she said. Good luck with talking to aliens. Although I do acknowledge and revere her hotness.

Well, she has the financial ressources to explore some possbilities. Anyone can have interests and passions of their own, I don't see any problem with that. I am quite sure that some people here, if they had Rihanna's financial capabilities would try to make a contribution, in some fashion in something that deeply intrigue them.
