Rapper/actor Common is deadly serious about his romance with tennis ace Serena Williams - don't try and talk to him when his girlfriend is on the court.
The hip-hop star has been dating the sportswoman for two years and hopes to marry her, and he knows this relationship is different because he's so "emotionally involved" in Williams' game.
He explains, "I sit there and I'm just tense and people try and talk to me and I tell them to be quiet. I was sitting next to Richard Branson and I didn't pay attention. I don't care who is there I'm focused on this tennis match."
Asked if there are wedding bells in his future during an appearance on Thursday's (13May10) Ellen show in the U.S., Common says, "I definitely want to get married. I would love to get married and have kids."
