Rihanna Says She Wants to Play Whitney Houston in Biopic
Clive Davis denied rumors of a Whitney Houston biopic, but that doesn’t mean that stars can’t dream.
Rihanna recently expressed she would love to play the late diva in a film, but she also realizes the responsibility that would come along with it.
“That would be something that I would have to give my entire life to do because I would want to really pull it off,” she said to The Press Association. “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,’” she continued. “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.”
While Jennifer Hudson, Vivica Fox, Brandy and Jordin Sparks were also reported as possible contenders, other reports alleged that Whitney wanted Meagan Good to portray her on film.
