Pearl Thusi has revealed that she was originally a contender for the 2015 South African of The Year .
The 25-year-old singer is ''convinced'' extra terrestrial beings exist and pays a sky scanner in the Mojave Desert, California, to give her information on sightings. A source told the Daily Star newspaper: ''Rihanna has always been convinced aliens will land on Earth in her lifetime. ''So she started using the man, who calls himself a sky scanner, to give her information from Nevada on anything that relates to sightings.''
The pair keep in touch from the Little A'Le'Inn, a restaurant and motel in Nevada, which is famous for its ''alien burger.'' The source explained: ''He keeps in touch with her from the Little A'Le'Inn - a motel which hosts UFO hunters. ''It's also near one of the world's most secret government bases, Area 51. This isn't a fad for Rihanna, she is a total believer and doesn't mind spending her money on it to get results.''
Rihanna previously confessed that she has used to spend time gazing at the sky when she was a child living in Bridgetown, Barbados, in order to spot an alien invasion. She previously said: ''My dad [Ronald Fenty] used to make me sit outside on the steps all night long looking for UFOs flying by, and I had to do that for years.''
