Since the surprising death of pop icon Whitney Houston in February, there have been all kinds of names tossed-around in regards to who could play the troubled diva in a biopic. Among those names have been pop star Rihanna, who spoke about it to the Associated Press.
“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. “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.”
