Turkish Gutter Press Gossip on Tarkan

By Adelind Osmanlı reporting from Munich, Germany

Turkish news portal Haberturk's entertainment section H2 carries a report today that claims female music artist Rihanna "refused" to collaborate with Tarkan on a song.

Quoting newspaper Vatan as the source, the gossip goes that Rihanna's manager asked for Tarkan's CD and concert footage. Expecting an offer of a duet, the article writes that the returned phone call was said to have been met with disappointment instead, with Rihanna's manager supposedly saying that "they really wanted to do something together, but it didn't suit their schedule."

The H2 report also reprinted the gossip that Eurovision 2009 entrant Azerbaijan Aysel Teymurzade had refused to duet with Tarkan, too, even thought the Azeri singer had denied these reports during her appearance at a recent music festival in Turkey.
