Rihanna Wants to Move on as Quickly as Possible

I’m pretty sure that if you were to ask Rihanna how she felt about this whole thing regarding Chris Brown beating her to a bloody pulp, she’d say that she’d really rather just pretend the whole thing didn’t happen. While her reps and lawyers have been adamant that she will cooperate in whatever legal manner she’s required to, she seems to have picked right back up with Chris where they left off (well, minus some punches to the face for the time being) and wants to get back to work on her career. While she’s been busy working on a new album, she’s also in talks to start doing some movie work. From Celebitchy,

“The battered pop star made an impromptu trip to the Big Apple over the weekend to have some meetings about impending projects: one of which is a proposed remake of 1992’s Whitney Houston/Kevin Costner flick, “The Bodyguard.” Rihanna would be taking on Whitney’s role in the updated version, which an insider says would be a “young and sexy take” on the favorite film. “GI Joe” hottie Channing Tatum’s name has been bandied about to take on Costner’s role.

“Before the situation with Chris, Ri was getting a lot of scripts. She’s been wanting to do movies for a while now,” our insider reveals. In addition to a proposed “Bodyguard” remake, Rihanna is also considering working on a “Charlies Angels” sequel, as well as potentially starring alongside Justin Timberlake, with whom she released her hit single “Rehab.” Rihanna’s camp denied the songstress has taken any meetings with any directors, producers or production companies.”

I have to say that when I heard that Rihanna had taken Chris Brown back, I lost a wee bit of respect for her. I do think it’s a terrible message she’s sending to today’s young women and I think she’s just putting herself back in a very bad situation. BUT. I would love, love, love to see her in a Bodyguard remake. That movie was so awesome and Ri-Ri would make an excellent choice for a Whitney stand-in. She not only has the incredible voice for the part but she also seems to have some of that troubled and mysterious persona that Whitney has too. I’d be very excited about seeing that movie!
