Rihanna has previously said that she would give her entire life in order to play the late, great Whitney Houston in a biopic based on her life. Since, it has sparked rumors that Rihanna is set to play Whitney if a movie gets made about her life.
At the time, she said, “That would be something that I would have to give my entire life to do, because I would really want to pull it off.”
In a new interview with MTV, she dismissed the speculation. She said, “That’s just rumors. I never heard anything about that. That’s a huge, huge role, and whoever does it has to do a good job. 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.”
Do you think Rihanna would do Whitney Houston justice if she were to portray her in a movie?
