Rihanna Readies Break From Music To Focus on Acting? – *Updated*

Published: Saturday 3rd Mar 2012 by Rashad

Much to the dismay of many-an-earplug seller, despite reports of new music on the horizon, Bajan beauty Rihanna took to the U.K.’s Jonathan Ross to announce she is taking a departure from recording to focus on acting.  The ‘We Found Love’ wailer has seemingly found her work on the forthcoming Peter Berg-directed film ‘Battleship’ (May 18th) as inspiration to ‘jump ship’ (temporarily, so to speak).

A move that is undoubtedly unfamiliar to the songstress given that she has acted like she could sing for the last 6 years.  Alas, the interview, set to air tomorrow night, also found the ‘Birthday Cake’ creator serve up news on a number of other topics.

Singing Adele‘s praises (fortunately not literally), chatting more on ‘BattleShip’, and dishing of her ‘type of man’, see pics and a preview of her ‘Talk That Talk’ performance after the jump:

Rihanna via Jonathan Ross Show:

“I don’t have time off but I am not recording.”

“This year I want to delve more into the movie industry, I had a little experience with Battleship.  I had a great time the first time so I want to continue picking the right roles so I can master them and see what happens.” 

‘I just want to pick films that are wise for me and roles that I can pull off, nothing that is too big for me. I love doing movies now. It’s something I want to do more of.”

Thanks RihannaDiva!

I’m sure all of such is too good to be true.  Given she does have Jay Z as a mentor (who has come out of retirement how many times now…?), it’s safe to say our 2012 will still be filled with more goodies from your favorite Barbadian yodeler and mine.  For as we all know, the exclusion of new recordings certainly does not exclude the promotion(s) of current recordings.

Fans can catch the full interview and performances as they air tomorrow night.  The news surfaces shortly after her joint effort with former boyfriend Chris Brown ‘Birthday Cake’ (remix) hit Billboard charts at #63 this week.

    Why r u so obsessed with this young lady? Seek medical attention. If she knows who u are( which I highly doubt) , I would consider a restraining order

    I think Rih should take a break. I think it would do her a world of good. I really believe that Rihanna was getting a little bored with her music life. She should take some time off and get inspired or find her passion.

    Rihanna’s s*** and edgy mix of pop music has made her
    stars of the pass Decade and she have got the proof.

    If Rihanna was Lipstick she’d be glossy, fruity & slick she is hip-hop
    INFUSED as one Writer put it. And less not forget the CLUB BANGER
    Track that turned her into a MEGA STAR, ELLA, ELLA, ELLA, ELLA,

  11. Lax March 3, 2012

    There’s a reason why she have got a pieces sign
    behind her right ear and a musical Note on her
    ankle ohhhh and a freedom in chris on her rib cage

    @Navy less keep holding on to the Rope in this
    Tug of war and see what happens in the Rihanna saga.
    Jay should be proud because after all Rihanna have gotten bashed
    by many of his dam jump off’s and many was a blast from his pass.
    Perhaps his other Artist want have to endure all of the bull s*** that
    Rihanna have had to endure. Rihanna have had to try and dodge the fukkkkin
    bullit from his jump offs and from his WIFEY FICKLE ASS FANS, THEM GAY
    ASS HOLES WILL BREAK THROUGH A FUKKKKKIN Brick wall to try and beat
    somebody ass down to the ground for even looking at a beyonce post/article
    dam i have never seen anything like it ever. I can see why Rihanna act like she does
    she had better keep them hazel/green eyes on that ball before it slip away from her ass for real. RIHANNA JUMPED THE BROOM WHEN SHE HOOKED UP WITH
    THAT MOVIE PRODUCER Now she have got a chance to spread her wings and
    Fllllllly, for real. THANKS TO JAY AND COMPANY FOR RAISING HER UP THE WAY THAT A CHILD SHOULD GO AND TAUGHT HER ASS THE ROPES AND IN GOOD FASHION, THANKS JAY AND COMPANY KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK.
    TRAIN RITA GOOD AND SHE TOO WILL HAVE MUCH SUCCESS YOU A GOOD MAN JAY FOR KNOWING HOW TO PICK A WINNER.

    When Beyonce Acts SAM puts her in the level of Angelina Jolie

    C’mon leave Rihanna do her thing.

  22. riri March 4, 2012

    I think this is a BAD move!

    why? Because she has done a song with chris brown. and if she planning to release it with a video and performance with the woman beater, she needs to see the backlash and deal with it.

    so far s*** hasnt happened because she hasnt released, performed and did a video with chris brown. IF she planning to do this with Brown, then she need to chill and see if she needed to release a new music to make up for the backlash!
