    I personally can't vision it at all, esp. with that bajan accent she got.

    she can't sing or act i say no i don't even need to waste time hearing what they think

    you know when you really think about rihanna is basically talentless aside from her looks

    NO

    I'd like her to play a role though in a film where she appears stark naked and does a full frontal

    Ehm

    RiRi lip synchs on stage and has awful breath control when singing live which weren't traits of Whitney when alive ..

    Before she hit the 🤬 pipe

    Ouch.....LOL poor RiRi need to sing "Ain't no Love" for this thread.
  • DarthRozayDarthRozay Members Posts: 20,570 ✭✭✭✭✭
    nah. her accent wouldnt fit. and she'd need to hire someone to sing the songs for her

    The producers of that new movie she stars in were sensible to notice her marketing potential

    Aside from that, chick is nothing but a 🤬 tease to me

    Rhianna definitely has the looks to play Whitney but like people said, her Bajan accent is problematic, I doubt they would actually have her sing (due to the fact she can't sing so I could see her lip-syncing Whitney's classics), and acting-wise isn't this "Battleship" movie her first acting gig???
    The only thing that works in her favor is her looks...I could see her playing a young Whitney based on looks...everything else, NOPE!

    i agree, why must they got a famous pop star at the moment? rihanna doesn't even resemble whitney, young or older. and it makes more sense to just get a non-singer so that they can lip sync, if rihanna lip syncs then what's the point of her being in the movie?

    lol, Whitney was much darker than Rihanna and really looks nothing like her.

    Would be a terrible move IMO.
  • YamoleySenseiYamoleySensei Members Posts: 8,509 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Whitney was what, a shade or two darker than Rhianna, big 🤬 deal....lol @ the Biggie movie, did Naturi Naughton resemble Kim?
    Throw on some 80's garb on Rhianna, fix her hair up like Whitney, let her lip-sync her songs and it could possibly work...

    No she doesn't. Rih looks nothing like Whitney and her voice will throw off the whole movie.

    I think Thandie Newton would be good pick in terms of acting and she kind of features Whitney Houston.
