Rihanna wants to play Whitney Houston (Oh, the irony)

Struggling singer, and substance abuser, Rihanna is being considered to play the part of Whitney Houston in a biopic produced by The Press Association.

According to theLifeFiles blog, “other actresses being considered for the part include Vivica A. Fox, Jennifer Hudson, Meagan Goode, Jordin Sparks and Brandy.”

But 24-year-old Rihanna is at the top of the list of stars who are competing for the plum role.

“That would be something that I would have to give my entire life to do because I would want to really pull it off,” Rihanna told The Press Association. “That’s a huge, huge role and whoever does it has to do a good job.”

We have no doubt that Rihanna would do an excellent job drawing from her experiences as a somewhat talented singer whose once promising career was derailed by her dependency on drugs and alcohol.

“My first song that I remember falling in love with was a Whitney Houston song — ‘I Will Always Love You,'” Rihanna said. “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.”

The only thing the producers have to worry about is Rihanna dying before the movie wraps.

    I still think Paula Patton needs this role….she would nail it and she looks kind of like a light-skinned Whit…

  • Vanguard Reese

    So nobody else thinks Anika Noni Rose would play the hail out of Whitney?

  • The Makeup Maven

    @ Frenchie Silk PIE – yesssss I had it ready hours ago, memba???

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOzfujTwDIA @NikkeMinxx

    I think they should use a powerhouse voice but (relatively) unknown actress. That way it wont take away from the movie….

    I like Anika Noni Rose I saw her in the all black production of cat on a hot tin roof.

    Damn she is sexy…

    I would sooooo beat that into submission.
