Singer/I guess actress Rihanna might have had some tangles with violent men in the past, but that doesn't mean she needs the upcoming remake of the Kevin Costner/Whitney Houston film The Bodyguard to keep her safe. Go girl, you, etc:
"I hate it when singers do singing movies all the time, because you can never look at them as anybody else. I want to play a character, my whole life is playing Rihanna, being a singer won't be a stretch for me."

All snark aside, I think it's pretty cool of Rihanna to have an artistically principled stand like this. Which will make it all the more disappointing when she ends up playing second lead in Fat Mailman 2 or something. But for now, way to go Rihanna. (via Hitfix)
