Whitney Houston told Rihanna to stay away from Tyler Perry


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!

Tyler Perry channels Natalie Portman on the cover of his new movie poster!

Tyler Perry has a new movie coming out – another Madea movie, this one titled ‘Madea’s Big Happy Family’. In an interesting promotional poster just released, Tyler Perry poses as Natalie Portman did on the ‘Black Swan’ poster.

Genius marketing? As the Oscars approach – wonder how many other movies he will spoof to promote his new film?

In this poster, Tyler claims to be “The Real Black Swan”.  Madea and Perry return in “Madea’s Big Happy Family” April 22.  And if you haven’t seen “The Godmother” poster yet it’s behind the jump! (more…)
