It has been just a year since Robyn Fenty, otherwise known as Rihanna (her middle name), signed her deal with the DEF Jam label. The home girl is doing so fine and just turned the big eighteen last Monday. (No, Shona wasn’t invited this time. Big tears.)
But Shona did hear some juicy news…
Rihanna’s second LP “A Girl Like Me” is due in April, but Shona says that a huge movie deal will shortly follow the LP. Big secret… Rihanna has been taking acting lessons big time since last October and showed real natural talent, so she was signed – but the plan is to put out the new album first, then bump up the publicity by announcing the movie deal.
Ok Shona: we are holding you to that girl!
For those three people who have been locked in a closet for about the past 12 months, Miss Fenty is known to the music world by her middle name Rihanna. In less than a year, she moved from an average Barbadian secondary school teenager to an international superstar proudly flying the Barbadian flag all over the world.
Rihanna’s DEF Jam website is here. A Google search will get you all kinds of goodies…. but nothing about the movie deal, so you read it first at Barbados Free Press.
And by the way… Shona also hears that Rihanna still remembers where she came from, and is still the same home girl inside, no matter all the lights and glitter. (We all knew that anyway)
