Rihanna Promotes Battleship, Talks Playing Whitney, Tweets Helicopter PhotosTuesday, April 03, 2012
In movie mode, the 24-year-old recently opened up about wanting to play Whitney Houston in her biopic.
“That would be something that I would have to give my entire life to do because I would want to really pull it off,” she said to The Press Association. “That’s a huge, huge role and whoever does it has to do a good job.”
She continued: “My first song that I remember falling in love with was a Whitney Houston song — ‘I Will Always Love You. It was really inspiring and it made me develop a passion for music, so really she’s partly responsible for me being here in this industry.”
No word on when or if a biopic will be made but Jennifer Hudson, Vivica Fox, Brandy and Jordin Sparks are mentioned as possible Whitney candidates.
In more Rihanna news, the chart-topper released several pictures recently via her Twitter account as she flies in a helicopter.
Talk about the good life!
