Rihanna Wants To Be Whitney Houston!

| Filed under: RihannaMusic MinuteFilm FlickersWhitney Houston


Well, some events in their lives are scarily similar (both singers, both having, ahem … ongoing abusive relationships) so perhaps Rihanna would be able to bring something personal to the role?

While rumors of a Whitney Houston biopic have supposedly been squelched by Clive Davis, Princess Riri has recently mentioned her adoration for the late singer, and if she were to play her role model, it would be a life-enveloping experience:

"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."

While the biopic may not be happening anytime soon, and while there are a host of other actresses who could pull off the great Whit, we would be intrigued to see Riri in such a self-representing role.

Who would U want to portray Whitney Houston??

    Rihanna?! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! She is no where near as talented as Whitney! The only person who rivalled Houston was Mariah.

  2. 2

    Can Rihanna act? We already know that the panting and hiccoughing that she calls singing is nowhere near the calibre of Whitney, and if the Battleship trailers are anything to go by, her acting is not much better.

  3. 3

    She looks nothing like Whitney. Just because they're both black, that doesn't mean that it's an automatic fit. Look wise, I think Meagan Good is the best bet. Too bad she isn't a great actress, nor a box office draw.

  4. 4

    I just can't imagine her being able to pull off a fast-speaking American accent because she has a distinct Bajan accent and tone.

  5. 5

    If they pick Rihanna to portray Whitney, who will do the vocals? First of all, they need to let the woman's remains get cold and let her family grieve before making a biopic of her life. Secondly, they need to find a talented no name or lesser known person who can sing (so that disqualifies Rihanna) to be Whitney.

    Does anyone remember the first season of American Idol and one of the finalist was this cute girl named Tamara Gray? I think she would be a good choice.

    So, you say they are eerily similar then mention they both sing, like millions of others, and both been in bad relationships, like everyone. God damn you are a fucking idiot, just making shit up to report on. Plus, of course she does. This bitch is as original as gentleman gaga, not at all in case you were wondering. What a joke. She needs to go away and be a full time hooker, instead of a part time one she is now.

    Re: KarrieBelle – You're right - Tamara Grey would be great. She can sing and I think she can act too.

    The whore would have to do it in blackface!!!

    Re: KarrieBelle – Rihanna can sing. I'm sick of you hoes always dissing her. Now she doesn't do the same style as Whitney and they sound nothing alike, but don't knock talent. You were already hating on J. Lo, a 43 year old woman who is doing more than you anyway, and now Rihanna. You come off as being extremely frustrated, just by reading your self-hating comments on the internet.

  10. 10

    Don't worry Rihanna, you'll be strung-out & found ten-inches under water too….that's if Chris doesn't get to you first.

  11. 11

    Don't you have to be able to sing to be like Whitney Houston?

  12. 12

    The problem is Whitney could actually sing. Perhaps she could play Whitney when older and broken down. Trouble with Rihanna is she will always be a wannabe

  13. 13

    "both having, ahem … ongoing abusive relationships"

    Ongoing ?

    As far a I know Rihanna does not have an abusive relationship. She HAD one.

    Nor does Whitney Huston… as she is dead.

  14. 14

    i just don't see that ever happening.

  15. 15

    oh lord no. just no.

  16. 16

    NO! Firstly, Rhianna has turned herself white so she would have to be in blackface. And scondly, she can't sing or act. What she can do is show her lady parts, no problem.

  17. 17

    @Florida Bitch- First of all, I was not "hating" on JLo because I actually called her beautiful woman, nor was I half as mean as most of the people who commented. More importantly, YOU are following ME around from post to post and paying loads attention to my comments and yet YOU are questioning what I am doing with MY life?! You cyber stalking psycho! What does it matter to you what I think of Rihanna or JLo for that matter and why ate you obsessed with me when I am not the only one who question Rihanna's singing ability? How sad and empty is your life that you literally follow all my comments enough to get upset behind them?

    the header has it right rihanna "WANTS" to be whitney… but she cant because whitney never sang with autotune and rihanna can not sing without it

  19. 19

    why would this white woman want to play a black woman??

  20. 20

    Re: Camycam – rihonna is now officially white isn't she?

  21. 21

    Just because they both shared many of the same personal issues, does not mean that Rihanna is fit to play her. No, just no.

  22. 22

    Re: Camycam – Just because they're both black, that doesn't mean that it's an automatic fit. - Agreed.

  23. 23

    Re: KarrieBelle – I guess they could get Jennifer Hudson to do them, with the right hair she KIND OF looks like her, but she really can't act and even more so because of that I would think her accent would be an issue. I say keep looking!

  24. 24

    Even though Whitney did drugs, in public, most of the time she was a very classy looking lady. TAKE note. Also in that case we can look forward to Rihanna not living past age 50. Excellent.

  25. 25

    jennifer hudson is the only one that can come close

    rhianna is no princess shes too trashy and hangs around losers

    nobody cant play the role of whitney better than whitney i dont care what you say rhianna is not capable of playing whitneys character

  27. annonymous says – reply to this


    Re: Everything popular is wrong. – thank you for making sense like rhianna cannot play whitney

  28. shibooyah says – reply to this


    Oh God no. If its for "acting" purposes, my pick would be - Halle Berry, Zoe Saldana or Joy Bryant.
