Rihanna may be copying fellow artist Iggy Azalea’s method of finding love — through social media. On Monday, the 25-year-old stunner posted a photo of her “man crush, Philadelphia Eagles player Mychal Kendricks. Instagram has a trend on Monday where people can post pictures of their male crush under the hashtag “MCM," meaning "man crush Monday."

The singer posted a photo of Kendricks along with the photo caption, “Is it Monday? Cuz chhh…#MCM [sic].” Mychal Kendricks Rihanna posted this photo of Mychal Kendricks  Instagram

Similarly, Australian rapper Azalea and Nick Young became an item after the NBA player posted a photo of her on Twitter in September along with the hashtag #WCW (Woman Crush Wednesday.) Will the same happen with Rihanna?

Kendricks is a linebacker for the Eagles, and was drafted in 2012, signing a four-year-contract with them. He attended the University of California, Berkeley, from 2008 to 2011, and as a senior in 2011, he was the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year after recording 106 tackles, three sacks and two interceptions. The 23-year-old has a bit of a resemblance to Rihanna's exes, Chris Brown, and Drake, so she certainly seems to have a type. She and Brown broke up last year after a tumultuous on-and-off agin relationship that began in 2007.

Most of her female followers quickly agreed that Kendricks is right up her alley, with one even calling him a “muscular Chris Brown.” Do you think the two will start dating?
