Rihanna finally went back to black. She tweeted a photo of her new/old color with just the caption “Cuz I’m black bitch.” That sentence is either missing an “a” or a comma. In these type of situations, just nod your head and say nothing in order to not sound racist.
In other Rihanna news, now that she has Battleship on her resume, she denied rumors of being asked to play Whitney Houston but said that she’d be honored to take the part if she was offered. “I didn’t get that call yet,” said the 24-year-old, adding: “That would be something that I would have to give my entire life to do because I would want to really pull it off. That’s a huge, huge role and whoever does it has to do a good job.”
“I met her at a Clive Davis party. I love her. She’s one of my big music icons, and I have always looked up to her,” she continued.
“My first song that I remember falling in love with was a Whitney Houston song – I Will Always Love You. All of her music actually was always played in my house, with Mariah Carey and Celine Dion. 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.”
A bunch of studio execs just started drooling like Pavlov’s dog and are trying to greenlight this right now. Their pitch is basically, “Imagine this. Rihanna. Whitney Houston. Bags of money.” Then the studio head just said, “You had me at bags of money.” Though at least one person would say this is a terrible idea.
