London, April 4: Singer Rihanna says she would love to portray Whitney Houston in a biopic because she was inspired by the late singer when she was younger.
“My first song that I remember falling in love with was a Whitney Houston song, ‘I will always love you’. It was really inspiring, and it made me develop a passion for music, so really she’s partly responsible for me being here in this industry,” contactmusic.com quoted Rihanna as saying.
“That would be something that I would have to give my entire life to do, because I would really want to pull it off. That’s a huge, huge role and whoever does it has to do a good job,” she added.
She says she could do a comedy movie.
“I want to try different roles – maybe a comedy next, or who knows? I like sarcastic, dry humour. I love movies like ‘Superbad’ and ‘Pineapple Express’, pretty much all of Seth Rogen’s movies,” she said.
