LONDON – Rihanna isn’t being drawn into questions about her relationship with Ashton Kutcher.

At a press conference for her debut movie “Battleship,” the singer dismissed questions about whether she’s involved with the “Two And a Half Men” star, after reports that she visited his house in Los Angeles.

When asked if Kutcher would be joining her in London for her promotional trip, Rihanna called the question “disappointing.”

The singer says “I am happy and I’m single, if that is what you are asking.”

“Battleship,” based on the game by Hasbro, is directed by Peter Berg and puts Rihanna in her first film role.

She plays Petty Officer Second Class Cora Raikes, a weapons specialist, alongside Taylor Kitsch and Liam Neeson.

“Battleship” is being released in the U.K. on April 11 and the U.S. on May 18.

According to MTV, questions of romance arose last week when a report surfaced that Rihanna had headed over to the actor’s house late one night and stayed there for several hours.

R.I. native to address class of 2012

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Viola Davis has been selected to deliver the commencement address for Providence College’s class of 2012. The actress, who grew up in Central Falls, will receive an honorary doctoral degree.

Davis was the hometown favorite for best actress in last month’s Academy Awards for her performance as a maid in “The Help,” but she lost to Meryl Streep.

Davis donated $1,000 each to a Central Falls charter school and the Central Falls library last year. Streep made $10,000 donations in Davis’ name to the same charter school and to an Upward Bound scholarship fund the actress established with her sister.

Davis is a 1988 graduate of Rhode Island College, where she studied theater.

Houston’s ex charged with drunken driving

LOS ANGELES — Singer Bobby Brown was charged Wednesday with three misdemeanor charges including drunken driving, two days after his afternoon arrest in suburban Los Angeles.

Brown faces two DUI-related counts and another charge that he was driving on a suspended license, the city attorney’s office said.

A phone message for Brown’s attorney, Tiffany Feder, was not immediately returned. Earlier in the day, she released a statement denying the singer was driving unsafely when he was pulled over by the California Highway Patrol on Monday afternoon.

The agency said Brown was initially stopped because he was seen talking on a cellphone without a hands-free unit, but the officer suspected the singer was impaired.

Brown failed a field sobriety test, according to the CHP.

He was released from jail without having to post bail.

“Mr. Brown is taking this matter seriously and an investigation is under way,” Feder said in a statement.

Brown faces up to six months in jail on the DUI counts if convicted. His first court appearance is scheduled for April 16.

He is the ex-husband of singer Whitney Houston, who drowned in a bathtub on the eve of Grammy Awards in February. He made a brief appearance at her funeral but left before the service began.

He is a founding member of the group New Edition and has been touring with the group recently.
