Rihanna would 'love' Whitney Houston role

April 3rd, 2012

Rihanna would give ''her entire life'' to play Whitney Houston in a biopic.

The 'You Da One' hitmaker - who makes her feature film debut this summer in 'Battleship' - admits she would love to play the late singer in a possible movie, because she was inspired by her as a youngster.

She said: ''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.

''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.''

Discussing her possible future in movies, Rihanna added she could see herself appearing in a comedy.

She said: ''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.''
