Rihanna To Play Whitney Houston?

With Rihanna’s acting debut in the movie “Battleship” coming up next month, she’s already talking about her future in acting!

Riri wants to play Whitney Houston in her life story!

She says:

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.

She’d give her entire life? That’s a pretty big wish! So is this something that’s going to happen?

Shortly after Whitney passed away, rumors were that Clive Davis was working on a Whitney-movie and names like Jennifer Hudson, Jordin Sparks AND Rihanna were being tossed around. A rep for Clive says that the rumor is completely false and that no movie is in the works.

I love Rihanna, but I don’t know if she could pull it off compared to J-Hud or even Beyonce.  Her admiration to Whitney though is really sweet. Here’s what she had to say about her:

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.

When a Whitney-movie comes out (cause you know it will down the road) do you think Rihanna would be a good “Whitney”?
