She’s the hit birthing Pop star with a chart run just as enviable as her ever impressive business endeavours, and now – before the release of her eighth album- Rihanna has revealed that she hopes to be cast in ABC‘s hit show, ‘Scandal.’
Full story below…
While at at the MAC Cosmetics and MAC AIDS Fund premiere of the new documentary “It’s Not Over in West Hollywood“, the Hot 100 chart topper revealed when asked if she’d be interested in joining the show:
I love Scandal! Are you kidding? We’ll see—I would love that. I just love Scandal, period.
If Riri did join ‘Scandal‘, she’d be one of many performers to make a bold leap into scripted waters. In the year 2000, the rapper Ice-T joined the cast of ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’ to portray the character Odafin Tutola.
Ten years earlier, a Grammy award owning Will Smith hopped into bed with ‘NBC‘ to unleash the ratings beast that was ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air’, carrying the series until its plug was pulled in 1996, the year that gave the world the Brandy Norwood-led ‘Moesha.‘
So, just how would Ms. Fenty fare if tasked with leading a scripted series?
