You’ve got to hand it to Rihanna. Despite not having done much of anything besides party and take some gorgeous photos for the past few years, she’s managed to maintain her status as one of the biggest celebrities in the world – that’s some staying power. And that status is about to be immortalized on film since RiRi is about to become the subject of her own feature-length documentary by Peter Berg.
A contemporary take on the 1967 Bob Dylan rock doc Dont Look Back, the film is described as an “unfiltered look into Rihanna’s life and how she’s ascended to become a global icon.” Berg, who gave Rihanna her acting start with a role in his movie Battleship, said that he liked the idea of examining “a young artist at the top of her professional field” and that the project will be “much more a character study than a music film.”
Huh. I love me some Rihanna, so I’ll watch this. I’m not sure how I feel about it being a “character study” considering most of what RiRi seems to do is shop and get high, but shit, good for her, I guess.
Will you see it?
