Whitney Houston and Tyler Perry were apparently really close during her lifetime, but that may not have actually been the case, because apparently Whitney advised Rihanna to never do one of his movies, and RiRi’s been dodging him ever since.
Here’s the deal: apparently Tyler’s been asking Rihanna to start in his next movie for over a year and she keeps turning him down since Whitney advised her that only “fading black stars” took on those roles. Ouch!
“Whitney put her off Tyler by warning her bluntly that ‘Tyler’s films are for fading black stars, not rising ones,’” the source said.
“Rihanna so respected Whitney because in addition to being one of the biggest pop stars ever, she starred in hit movies such as The Bodyguard.”
And Rihanna, also a multi-talented star, feels it will be better for her career to do something similar to the 2012 science fiction war film Battleship, for which she received glowing reviews, the source said.
“She’s ruling out doing a Tyler Perry-style romantic comedy because she thinks she works better in action roles, playing the tough girl.”
It’s sorta hilarious that Rihanna would rather do a movie based on a board game than one that’s guaranteed to be a box office hit, even if it’s not all that rewarding. How well did Battleship even do – $65 million internationally? Oh wait, Tyler Perry’s last three did even less than that, so maybe I’m wrong. Do you, Rihanna!

Apparently Rihanna, 26, really REALLY needed the restroom in Manchester last night. She was filmed shoving a man out of her way to get into the men’s bathroom while dining at Zouk Restaurant. Although, perhaps she had other needs to attend to in the restroom, as her alleged paramour, Drake, was also seen entering the facilities. The two were dining together at the restaurant.
I can’t really keep up with Rihanna’s love life. She’s with Chris Brown, she’s with Drake, she’s texting Brown, she’s canoodling with Drake, she’s shoving men out of bathrooms…. I don’t know what to believe.
The Daily Mail reports on Drake and Rihanna:
The couple have been inseparable since rekindling their relationship earlier this year.
Drake has recently been seen with his former flame at Soixante Dix Neuf nightclub in Paris, Hooray Henry’s in West Hollywood, Nobu restaurant in London, and Izakaya in Amsterdam.
Last month, the Hold On hitmaker – born Aubrey Graham – invited Rihanna onstage at the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy.
Riri and Drizzy – who dated in 2010 – performed her track Pour It Up, as well as their flirty 2011 duet Take Care, in front of 17,000 screaming fans.

Let me preface this with the statement that I sincerely hope that this isn’t true.
According to Page Six, Rihanna may be heading back into the arms of the notorious girlfriend-beating sweetheart known as, Chris Brown. While Rihanna is reportedly getting cozy with Drake in Paris- being spotted performing and partying together, rumors are circulating that Brown and Rihanna have been texting one another… again.
Since Brown assaulted Rihanna back in 2009, there has been a restraining order, break-ups, reconciliations, nightclub fights, a rehab stay, as well as love-triangles involving the aforemented, Drake, and Brown’s current girlfriend, model Karrueche Tran.
Brown, who is recently out of anger management rehab… ehhhh…., reportedly started texting RiRi on her birthday.
I just can’t really handle this being true. Can someone in Rihanna’s life PLEASE just step in? Brown just makes my skin crawl. The guy is vile.
