It’s a curtain call for Rihanna… shower that is. It was revealed during San Diego Comic-Con that the 28-year-old will appear on the final season of Bates Hotel. Not just any guest spot either, but the “Work” singer will recreate one of the most iconic scenes in cinematic history.

Rihanna will take on the highly anticipated role of Marion Crane, the character played by Janet Leigh in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 classic Psycho. For those who haven’t watch the classic film, spoiler alert, Crane checks in the hotel, but never checks out.

“We wanted to thrust the iconic role into a contemporary spotlight and redefine it in a meaningful and exciting new way. We also heard Rihanna was a fan of the show, and we were huge fans of hers, so it was the perfect collision of creativity and fate,” executive producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin said in a statement released after the Comic-Con announcement.

This by far is RiRi’s biggest acting gig to date. Haven’t checked out the show yet, but I’ll most likely bingewatch it before Season 5 premieres. Check out Rihanna’s video announcement below.

Wheel of Musical Impressions” is by far my favorite segment on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. It never fails to deliver and the latest installment was no exception.

Celine Dion stepped up to the bat, or should I say wheel for her turn. It started off rocky with her Cher impersonation, but kicked into high gear when she flawlessly and hilariously channeled Rihanna and Sia. I died laughing with her hair bit on the latter. Her impromptu Michael Jackson was pretty great too.

Check out the awesome clip below. It’s nice to see Celine smiling and having fun again after losing her husband and brother back-to-back earlier this year.

There were two IMAX shots featured in Adele’s music video for “Hello.” However, the clip for Rihanna’s “Sledgehammer” becomes the first one to be shot entirely in IMAX. And the results are stunning.

Directed by Floria Sigismondi (The Runaways), the sci-fi clip features the 28-year-old singer as a powerful space witch-like figure. Very fitting given the track is the official theme song for Star Trek Beyond. She later transforms herself into a celestial entity that comes face to face with the USS Starship.

“I have been a fan of ‘STAR TREK’ since I was a little girl. I loved the idea that it explored new territory and the unknown. So being able to be the first director to shoot a music video entirely with IMAX cameras and use this revolutionary technology to explore a different type of new territory was a dream come true” Floria Sigismondi said in a statement.

The epic clip is absolutely fitting for the equally epic ballad penned by Sia. This marks the first time RiRi has teamed up with the “Chandelier” singer since the massive hit “Diamonds.” This one has potential to reach the heights of their last collabo. Check out the visual below.

The last time Rihanna teamed up with Sia, the massive hit “Diamonds” was born. The two singers reunite for the potential new smash, “Sledgehammer.” And no, it’s not a cover of Fifth Harmony’s underrated single. Instead, it’s an original composition for the Star Trek: Beyond soundtrack.

Reportedly, the track will play during the credits of the Justin Lin-directed film. It’s absolutely perfect for the sequel. It’s epic, dramatic and soaring. If this doesn’t do damage on radio and on the charts, I’ll be utterly shocked.

You’re just another brick and I’m a sledgehammer…”, RiRi sings in the chorus. And that lyric couldn’t be more true. With “Work,” “Needed Me” and the Calvin Harris and Drake collabos “This Is What You Came For” and “Too Good” respectively, Rihanna is certainly having a sensational year.

Check out her latest below and share your thoughts after. Be sure to also watch the newly-released Star Trek: Beyond trailer which features the RiRi track.

At long last, Calvin Harris and Rihanna have debuted the music video for their killer anthem “This Is What You Came For.” Their latest collab currently sits at its peak position of No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100. Their previous two, “We Found Love” and “Where Have You Been” reached No. 1 and No. 5 respectively. With a newly-dropped visual, “TIWYCF” stands a good shot of cracking the Top 5 like the others.

The music video is relatively simple in concept but executed quite fantastically by director Emil Nava. Rihanna performs inside a gigantic cube while lasers and different landscapes light up the studio. I’m somewhat curious to know if the white box is the same one Drake used for “Hotline Bling.” Probably not, but it looks very similar.

Check out the entertaining clip below which features only a cameo from Calvin Harris. Guess he was too busy to appear in the video for his own song. Perhaps, he was already mending his broken heart and learned that Taylor Swift had already moved on with a new beau, The AvengersTom Hiddleston. She certainly has a type doesn’t she 😉

It’s a busy day for Rihanna this Friday. Not only does she appear on Calvin Harris‘ new single “This Is What I Came For,” but the 28-year-old singer also assists Drake with a track off his new album, Views From The 6, out today.

Too Good” marks the fourth time Drizzy has teamed up with RiRi. Like their other collabos, “Take Care,” “What’s My Name?” and “Work,” their latest is a bona fide banger. “Too Good” probably won’t dominate the Billboard Hot 100, like “Work,” but I actually like the new song much better.

Give “Too Good” a listen below which plays on their rumored romance a wee bit. I also embedded a preview of his entire album. I’m already obsessed.

Whenever Calvin Harris and Rihanna team up, magic happens. Their epic “We Found Love” was a global smash and “Where Have You Been” performed quite well too. It’s hard to top the former, but the two superstars have served up another potential winner.

With Rihanna mostly working with urban and dancehall beats lately, it’s nice to hear the 28-year-old Bajan singer back on an EDM beat. “This Is What You Came For” has summer club banger written all over it. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for the accompanying visual.

If the single’s artwork looks familiar, Taylor Swift recently sported a jacket with the logo on the back. Who knew she was supporting her man at the time. Sneaky, sneaky, sneaky!!! Check out Calvin and Rihanna’s third collabo below.

Rihanna sure does love her guns. Whether she’s saving the world on the big screen, slaying it in her music videos or tatted on her body, a pistol is more often than not present. Is someone secretly campaigning to become the next NRA president 😉

Work” is still dominating the Billboard Hot 100, but Rihanna is hoping to find her next hit soon. She’s released “Needed Me” to urban stations while pop radio has “Kiss It Better.” The latter received a video treatment weeks ago and now it’s the former’s turn. Of the two, her latest is my favorite.

The visual for “Needed Me” is one of her most cinematic clips to date. Rihanna needs to work with Springs Breakers director Harmony Korine more often. Their collaboration is killer… literally.

Whether she’s wearing a barely-there sheer number or leather ensemble, the 28-year-old superstar oozes sex with every frame. Watch below to watch RiRi seek revenge on her cheating man caught red-handed at the strip club.
