I guess Rihanna will not be doing The Bodyguard remake despite the success it was for Whitney Houston. Rihanna does not want to be labeled as just a singer in a movie, but a character. Plus Jennifer Hudson and Beyonce have played singers in movies and they weren’t pigeonholed as just ‘singers’ in movies.
“I hate it when singers do singing movies all the time because you can never look at them as anybody else,” she said. “I want to play a character. My whole life is playing Rihanna, being a singer won’t be a stretch for me. I like challenges and being an actor is playing a role, being able to step into somebody else’s shoes, that’s the excitement,” she said.
