According to Star Magazine Rihanna is set to play the lead role in the upcoming movie “About Face”. The magazine also states that her acting skills are not up to par and she has been asked to take acting classes:
She's landed the lead role in About Face, which Starclaims will see Ri-Ri as “a fashion designer who has to change her ways to win the heart of the man she loves, similar to the 1975 Diana Ross film, Mahogany….”
“No one is sure she has any acting skills. She’s a bit stiff and has to learn how to emote more…No one wants another Madonna on their hands — someone who can sing but can’t act.”
Rihanna performed her latest single "Rudeboy" on Ellen the other day. This is the best performance we’ve seen from Rihanna since her "Pon De Replay Days". She may not be much of a dancer but homegirl is killing those moves.
