Rihanna Talks About Her Upcoming Movie ‘Battleship’ & Role In The Future


Earlier this week, Rihanna talked to the press about Battleship, her first acting role, in London. She plays Petty Officer Raikes — a weapons specialist who gets a thrill from firing heavy artillery. And the singer admitted she enjoyed working with guns almost as much as her character. Rihanna said:

“The one on the boat was so powerful, on the ribs, every time, ugh, I remember. I would come back to the set with black gunpowder everywhere — it was crazy. But it was so much fun. I loved it, every moment. I loved feeling it in my chest.”

Rihanna has history with the military. She joined the army cadets as a youngster in Barbados — and not because of the boys.

“I just wanted to join an organisation. I didn’t want to be at school for school work, that was boring. Everything else was kind of not my thing, so I joined the cadets. They had weapons. I wasn’t into boys then.”

Rihanna has worn some pretty uncomfortable outfits on stage during her career, so her Navy clobber in the movie provided some light relief.

“I thoroughly enjoyed it. I really did. It felt good to not have to think about what to wear. Every day was the exact same thing. It was really comfortable.”

But Rihanna’s appearance in the sci-fi movie — which is out on April 11 in the UK and also stars Liam Neeson — has not been without its drawbacks. Since making the film, Rihanna doesn’t feel quite as confident that aliens don’t exist.

“Now I don’t know what to believe, but I’m not worried about it, you know? People are so concerned with the unknown, it’s hilarious. I mean, whatever is to be will be. And what can we do if they do exist and they do decide to invade earth? We will just know when we get to it.”

The Bajan star insists she will never give up pop to concentrate on becoming an actress full-time because music still “makes the world go round”. But she hasn’t ruled out starring in a comedy film in the future.

“I want to do comedy, maybe a romantic comedy. I want to try being more vulnerable, but I want to try different things. I don’t want to stick to one type of role.”
