Rihanna Appears In 'Bates Motel' Trailer As Marion Crane

Rihanna will be Norman Bates' infatuation.

Rihanna is set to play one of the most recognizable characters in Bates Motel, Marion Crane.

Although a lot of excitement has come from her role as Nine Ball in the Ocean's spinoff, get ready to see yet another side of the "Work" singer's ability to entertain through her multiple appearances as Crane in the fifth and final season of A&E's Bates Motel.

The Bajan superstar has reached record numbers with her album Anti, but she's making her name in the acting world simultaneously. Last summer we received conformation from RiRi informing the people at San Diego Comic-Con that she would play this role. The character has become iconic over the years, first appearing as the shower victim in 1960's Psycho directed by the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock.

Entertainment Weekly caught up with Kerry Ehrin, executive producer of the project, and she hinted that Rihanna will be Norman Bates' (Freddie Highmore) infatuation. Although this seems similar to the role made famous in Psycho, Ehrin makes it clear that it won't be exactly the same. "We’re taking threads of that story and definitely using them so it’s recognizable, it’s just where we go with it is very different," Ehrin said.

Kylie Jenner Doubles Down On Being Crowned A "Self Made" Billionaire

The premise of "self-made" and its interpretation when it comes to privileged celebrities has been a huge debate. When Kylie Jenner was named Forbes' youngest self-made billionaire, debates were raised due to her timeline in the limelight and her wealthy family. The 21-year-old defended her title, explaining how she doesn't fall into any ofter category.

"There’s really no other word to use other than self-made because that is the truth," she said in Q&A with Interview Magazine's German edition. "That is the category that I fall under," she started.

She acknowledged how her fan base equated to her success but refuted claims that she used her family's money to jump-start her wildly successful Kylie Cosmetics line.

"Although, I am a special case because before I started Kylie Cosmetics, I had a huge platform and lots of fans. I did not get money from my parents past the age of 15. I used 100 percent of my own money to start the company, not a dime in my bank account is inherited… and I am very proud of that."

Earlier this month (March 5) the mother-of-one officially surpassed Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest person to reach billionaire status, when Kylie Cosmetics hit a billion dollars in revenue.
