Rihanna talks about ‘Battleship’ role with BBC

date 09 Apr Posted by: Comment

Pop star Rihanna is making her big screen debut in the forthcoming blockbuster Battleship. The 24-year-old plays Petty Officer Second Class Cora Raikes, a weapons specialist in the US Navy. Her character is one of a handful of people who hold the fate of the planet in their hands, after an alien invasion off the coast of Hawaii. She spoke to the BBC about the role, and her future ambitions in film.
Why choose this as your first film?

I wanted my first role to be, most importantly, one that I was capable of mastering and performing well in. It was all brand new. It was all something that was difficult. But it was exciting, it was a good experience.

You were an army cadet when you were growing up in Barbados. How did that help you prepare for this role?

It was definitely helpful. We used to shoot on a range. I did a lot of training, a lot of discipline. So I had the army etiquette from a young age.

How did you get in shape for the film?

I had to do tons of push-ups. I had to work out with sand bags that were the weight of the weapons. The trainer, he was a soldier. He yelled at me so many times, right in my face. He would never call me Rihanna, he would never respond to me. But it really put me in that place where, when I went on set, it wasn’t all surface with the character. It wasn’t me pretending. There was actually a character that was built. So it was necessary.

How did that make you feel?

I didn’t get it. I was like, ‘he’s not coming back here. There’s no way he’s in my hotel room talking to me like that’. After a while I got so freaked out. Every time he came over I would hide all my high heels, any shopping I did I would hide the bags, I moved my pink iPod off the dock. I got rid of those so fast. But it worked. It worked.

How long did it take to be Rihanna again afterwards?

I didn’t have a lot of time in between being Raikes and being Rihanna. I literally left the set at night and went straight to do a music video for Only Girl In The World. I flew to LA from Hawaii and started shooting that video.

What’s the biggest difference between singing and acting?

Singing is familiar. It’s all I’ve ever known. Acting is a whole new world – and it’s a world I respect as much, if not even more, because when you’re a singer you get to be yourself, but when you act you really have to make people believe you’re someone else. I really don’t know how actors get it done.

Who’s your role model as an actress?

Meryl Streep is my favourite. She’s just stone cold. I love her.

Raikes is quite a tomboy. She gets involved in the rough stuff. Is there a Raikes inside every woman?

Absolutely. All of us can stand up right next to the guys, eye to eye. We all can do that. We just have to believe it.

Would you like to make more films?

Absolutely, there are plans for that this year – but I can’t really talk about the other projects yet. Battleship made me want to see what else I could do. I want to try different roles. Maybe comedy next. Who knows?

There have been rumours you would play Whitney Houston.

I didn’t get that call yet! But who wouldn’t want to play her? That would be something that I would have to give my entire life to do because I would want to really pull it off. That’s a huge, huge role and whoever does it has to do a good job. I always looked up to her. One of the first songs I remember falling in love with was a Whitney Houston song – I Will Always Love You. Her music, all of her music, was played in my house. It was really inspiring and it made me develop a passion for music. So really she’s partly responsible for me being here, in this industry.

And are there plans for a new album, too?

Not yet, but I’m in the early stages of collecting [songs] and putting together a team to work with. I’m travelling all over the world to find new sounds and new producers that people don’t really know of.

You’re playing the Hackney Weekend festival this summer. What tricks have you got up your sleeve?

It’s definitely going to be different, it has to be different. I just like to party on stage. I like to laugh and feed off the energy of the crowd and that always translates.

Your mentor Jay-Z is the other headliner. Is there any competition?

No! I can’t wait to see his show. Every time we’re on the same bill, I try to stick around to see his show. I love watching Jay-Z perform.



New interview: Out in the Cold with Rihanna

date 07 Apr Posted by: Comment

TOKYO — A busy sked up ahead, from April 1 to 3.
Day One: Journalists from all over Asia (and a few from Brazil and Mexico) watch Battleship at the Toho Cinema a stone’s throw from the Ritz Carlton (where several scenes of Sofia Coppola’s acclaimed movie Lost in Translation were shot) in Roponggi where the entourage is billeted.

Day Two: In the morning, TV interviews with the stars led by Rihanna and Taylor Kitsch (yes, “the one” involved in that unfortunate “immigration thing” that happened in Indonesia and not, repeat NOT in the Philippines; more on him soon), also including Alexander Skarsgard (of True Blood). After lunch, general press conference at the flight deck of the USS George Washington at the US Naval Base in Yokosuka, more than an hour drive away from Tokyo. (Story on “jump” page)

Day Three: Back at Ritz Carlton function room for interviews with Battleship director Peter Berg, and other cast members model Brooklyn Decker whose big break came in 2006 when she graced the cover of Sports Illustrated; Japanese actor Tadanobu Asano, touted as “a cross between Toshiro Mifune and Johnny Depp;” and Col. Greg Gardson, a decorated officer who lost both legs in Iraq in 2007.

Produced by Universal Pictures and distributed locally by Solar Films (opening nationwide on Thursday, April 12), Battleship (based on the popular Hasbro classic naval-combat videogame) marks the movie debut of Rihanna who plays Petty Officer Second Class Cora Raikes, an elite member of the US Navy described as a “tough-as-nails gunner.”

After the presscon, I sit with Rihanna for a one-on-one. It’s spring, very cold all over Tokyo and much more so on the flight deck. And yet Rihanna exudes genuine warmth and a familiarity that is so disarmingly endearing. She wears a black trenchcoat over her black dress and she talks animatedly.

After the interview, I ask if it’s okay to have my picture taken with her to accompany this story (proof positive that I was with her in the flesh, hehehe!) and she smiles, “Yes, of course!” She takes my cell phone and clicks. Bad shot! So Rihanna calls her assistant to take another shot, her face close to mine. Good shot!

As in other interviews, there should be “no personal questions,” especially not about recent reports that Rihanna is “friendly again” with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown with whom she recorded last February a remix of her song Birthday Cake. Okay, fine. Anyway, Rihanna has a lot more to say about a lot of other topics.

Why this kind of movie as your acting debut?

“Hmmmmm…I think I was really looking for something that would make people look at me in a different light, not as Rihanna, the singer, but as the character that I am playing. So when Battleship came around, I thought it was the perfect vehicle to kick off my movie career. It’s something that’s so far from my real life. I’m running around in military uniform and I’m not glamorous in any way. I’m just one of the guys — no singing, no love life. And it was really cool.”

You don’t sing, all right, but you do hum in one scene.

“You know, I sing in real life. That’s who I am…I sing. But in the film, I’m somebody else. I want to keep the two worlds separate — the world where I sing and the world where I act.”

  • Rihanna on “Battleship” for Australia’s Herald Sun

“I didn’t know whether I would love it or hate it, but acting was always something I wanted to try. I didn’t expect it to be this big for getting my feet wet, but I’m really enjoying the experience. Every day is a new learning experience, because I didn’t really know – I still don’t, I am just going with it – what acting was. Being on a movie set, the whole process of it, the green screen, working with other actors, it’s all very new to me. With everything I do, I am such a perfectionist. So there are butterflies in my stomach every time they say ‘action’. I still don’t know if it’s what they want, everything is new to me, but I’m learning from the best.” And while life in Baton Rouge might be a far cry from the glamorous jet-setting life-style with which she is associated, Rihanna says she is enjoying the change of pace. “I am used to getting on a plane every day, if not twice a day, and travelling a lot. So I am really enjoying being in one place for one project. It’s more focused and a lot slower in pace. I could definitely get used to this.”

Rihanna for ELLE Magazine – photoshoot + interview

date 04 Apr Posted by: Comment

On her breakup with Chris Brown:

“It gave me guns. I was like, well, fuck. They know more about me than I want them to know. It’s embarrassing. But that was my opening. That was my liberation, my moment of bring it. […] Now you know that, so you can say what you want about it. I don’t have anything to hide.”

On the backlash over their reconciliation:

“The bottom line is that everyone thinks differently. It’s very hard for me to accept, but I get it. People end up wasting their time on the blogs or whatever, ranting away, and that’s all right. Because tomorrow I’m still going to be the same person. I’m still going to do what I want to do.”

On having kids:

“It could be tomorrow. It could be 20 years from now. I just feel like when the time is right, God will send me a little angel. But first, of course, I have to find a man. I mean, there’s a very important missing piece to the puzzle here!”


On finding that man:

“I feel like it’s hard for everybody! I don’t think it has anything to do with being famous. There’s just a major drought out there. […] But I just need to find the person who balances me out, because then things like my schedule won’t matter. I’ve done it before, so I know I can do it again.”
