London: Singer Rihanna thought British comedian Russell Brand was an "idiot" and didn`t find him funny when she first met him."I first met him when he was interviewing me on TV.

I was sick and it was the worst interview I`ve ever done. I was throwing up in a bucket and a doctor gave me a shot in my butt. Nothing was funny to me. I thought it was the most stupid f***ing interview I ever did in my f***ing life. Why am I talking to this idiot? He made me want to throw up again," she told Australia`s Cleo magazine.

However, the 23-year-old changed her mind when she met him the second time, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"We did another interview on MTV and I realised he was funny. I was probably a complete bitch, but only months afterwards did I get it," she said.
