Rihanna‘s not really what you would call an actress, despite that awful appearance in Battleship – and I say that as a Rihanna fan. Singer? Of course. Fashion plate? I’ll buy it. However, she’s still hot shit in the celebrity world, so of course Mr. Madea himself, Tyler Perry, wants to book her in for a new movie role. The problem is, that’s never going to happen because Whitney Houston told RiRi before she died that Tyler Perry movies are for “fading black stars”. Ouch!
“Whitney put her off Tyler by warning her bluntly that ‘Tyler’s films are for fading black stars, not rising ones,’” the source said.
“Rihanna so respected Whitney because in addition to being one of the biggest pop stars ever, she starred in hit movies such as The Bodyguard.”
And Rihanna, also a multi-talented star, feels it will be better for her career to do something similar to the 2012 science fiction war film Battleship, for which she received glowing reviews, the source said.
“She’s ruling out doing a Tyler Perry-style romantic comedy because she thinks she works better in action roles, playing the tough girl.”
HAHAHA, okay. First of all, please tell me they’re going to continue making movies based on board games so Rihanna can star. Maybe she can play the role of The Car in the Monopoly movie? What about Lord Licorice in Candyland? I’m into it.
Second of all, I feel like I need to watch the Madea movies now. Are they on Netflix?
