Rihanna recently told the U.K. Press Association that she would give her “entire life” for the chance to play Whitney Houston in a biopic about the late singer.
Rihanna said, “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.” The pop star continues, “That would be something that I would have to give my entire life to do, because I would really want to pull it off. That’s a huge, huge role, and whoever does it has to do a good job.”
I don’t know how I feel about Rihanna playing Whitney. I don’t think it’s a good fit!
