Whitney Houston is still managing to be a sassy role model from beyond the grave, and even the notorious 'rebel fleur', Rihanna is wise enough to listen to her sage advice.

Apparently, Tyler Perry has been chasing RiRi to bag the Barbadian beauty for one of his romantic comedies, but she has been running in the opposite direction with the ghost of Whitney Houston whispering tales of shattered careers into her ear.

A source has told Radar Online that;

Although Tyler has been courting Rihanna for a year and a half, hoping to build a movie around her, she has rejected the idea. Rihanna has pointedly avoided meeting with him!

Apparently, the reason Rihanna has such an aversion to the director is built around an occasion that the saucy songstress met Whitney Houston at a party before her tragic death in 2012. When Rihanna mention the possibility of taking up a movie role with Perry, Whitney wrinkled her nose up in abject horror. According to the source;

Whitney put her off Tyler by warning her bluntly that ‘Tyler’s films are for fading black stars, not rising ones'

Meow! Go team Whitney! You can't disagree with a woman who has dispensed such nuggets of wisdom as 'crack is whack', and Perry is just the worst.

Ain't nobody got time for the grand master of racial stereotypes, and even Rihanna's acting skills are too refined for the pantomime of unsubtle jokes she would be subjected to.

Those of you who are looking forward to some more silver screen sass from bad gal RiRi are in luck though, the very same source also told Radar Online that Rihanna is;

Under a mandate to get into another studio film before the end of the year

Do you think RiRi is being to uppity about her choice of movie role as a novice, or is it crucial for her possible silver screen career to make the right decision?


Is Rihanna right to turn down Tyler Perry?
