According to the DailyMail Robyn Fenty b.k.a., Rihanna is set to play legendary seductress Josephine Baker in a new biopic…
Per the DailyMail this summer, a new play about Josephine entitled Josephine And I, directed by Phyllida Law — mother of the actress Emma Thompson — captivated London theatre audiences with her rags-to-riches story.
And a film about her is to be released next year — it is rumored that the controversial singer Rihanna might play her.
But while Rihanna has endured her own share of scandals, her drug-taking and self-conscious exhibitionism pale in comparison to Josephine’s jaw- dropping exploits.
There is no word on whether or not Rihanna has signed on to play Josephine.
Do you think RiRi would nail the role?
