Rihanna knows that closed mouths never get fed so she isn’t afraid to share how infatuated she is with Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks, 23. RiRi wants Mychal because she loves his “sexy,” muscular bod, a source tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. Could this be the beginning of a hot new romance?

It sounds like Rihanna, 25, wants the Philadelphia Eagles star on her team!

“She thinks Mychal is one fine a** man,” a close confidant of Rihanna’s tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “He’s manly, with nice lips and big a**. Mercy!”

“She loves a big man like that and he seems like he’s got a lot going on,” the source adds. “She digs that.”

Well, Rihanna certainly is putting herself out there! It’s Mychal’s move — we wonder what he’ll do! Rihanna’s friends say she’s only human and that like most of her fans, she too gets gushy and has innocent school girl crushes. “Just because she’s ‘Rihanna’ or whatever, doesn’t mean she can’t have little crush on someone,” the source says.

It sounds like stars — including Rihanna — really are just like us!

Rihanna put the Internet in overdrive on Jan. 6 when she revealed Mychal as her “Man Crush Monday” on her Instagram account.

“Is it Monday? Cuz chhh…. #MCM [sic],” Rihanna wrote alongside a sexy picture of Mychal sweating on the football field.

Many of the Unapologetic artist’s Instagram followers immediately noticed how much Mychal favors RiRi’s infamous ex Chris Brown.

One follower asks, “You sure have a type, don’t you?”

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Rihanna go out with Mychal? Let us know!
