Rihanna may not have swept the Grammys at this year's ceremony, but she might be setting her sights on another form of entertainment. The R&B-pop singer will be starring alongside Taylor Kitsch in the upcoming film Battleship, and director Peter Berg seems to think she's doing well, reported MTV.
She was great, said Berg to MTV. She has a very strong part...I've always believed in musicians as actors. The director said that he's had great success working with country artist Tim McGraw in the film Friday Night Lights, and continued to list other skilled singers-turned-actresses.
But this is only one of Rihanna's current ventures-the 23-year-old starlet is also collaborating with fashion moguls Henry Holland and Nicola Roberts on a new television show, according to The Mirror.
I've always had a great love of fashion, Rihanna said to The Mirror. It's a constant source of information in my life, and is a big reason why I've grown into the person and artist I am today.
And although some seem to be dwelling on her past troubles with Chris Brown, the We Found Love singer is celebrating moving forward. People reported that Rihanna held a Caribbean-themed birthday bash to celebrate at the Hearst Mansion in Beverly Hills Monday night. Around 100 guests, including Bruno Mars and Katy Perry, arrived for an early celebration of the diva's 24th birthday, which is next week.
As for Chris Brown, he may have taken home this year's Grammy for Best R&B Album but many were angered by his recognition at the award show. The Twitter community even went so far as to incite a death hoax, with the term RIP Chris Brown trending yesterday.
how dang long did they give Nicki Minaj to do whatever that was? Strange. And Chris Brown twice? I don't get it. He beat on a girl, tweeted country singer Miranda Lambert.
Rihanna took home the awards for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for her single What's My Name? and Best Rap Song for All of the Lights.
