Rihanna and James Franco, now that's a pair of names that you don't see together all too often. But in reality, there seems to be a lot going on between the superstar singer and the actor, including a video that at one point could have starred the two of them and a possible role for Rihanna in Seth Rogen's next film.
In the latest news from her "common sense is not so common" world tour, reports are flying that Rihanna, 24, has spent the past couple months hooking up with a certain very famous and fidelity-challenged actor.
