Jadeveon Clowney Speaks on His Celebrity Crush, Says He's 'Coming' for Rihanna

Hear those footsteps, Rihanna? That’s the sound of a 266-pound defensive end coming to sweep you off your feet. Or something along those lines.

According to Josh Kendall of The State (h/t Kenley Young of Fox Sports), Jadeveon Clowney has developed a sizable crush on the 26-year-old pop singer.

Clowney revealed his desires at a predraft event in New York City on Wednesday when reporters inquired if he had a celebrity crush.

So be warned, Rihanna. Clowney is coming to sack you in the backfield. We’re talking a huge loss, here.

This may come as ominous news to Drake, Rihanna’s supposed/purported/implied boyfriend. Young agrees that there are a few men in line ahead of the defensive end.

“It is unclear how Chris Brown and/or Drake may feel about this development,” Young writes. “But any guy who has a problem with Clowney's crush may just want to go ahead and keep quiet about it anyway.”

Indeed, you couldn’t stack enough Drakes horizontally to keep Clowney from Rihanna. It’s not physically possible, even for a man so large and visible in the media.

As the projected No. 1 overall draft pick, Clowney is in for a big payday and more media attention than ever this fall. Whether that’s of any consequence to someone like Rihanna—well, I have no idea.

What I do know is, 90 percent of the male population is seeking the singer’s attention, and Clowney could flatten, stomp and hammer toss the rest of us out of the way at a moment’s notice.

You’ve been warned, Rihanna. Clowney is coming for you. 

The seven-day forecast for Drake's diary? Rain.
