When Rihanna sang “shine bright like a diamond,” she probably didn’t expect anyone to outshine her. But, that’s exactly what just happened.
The Barbadian beauty, who is currently riding high at the top of the charts with her seventh studio album, Unapologetic, probably won’t hear any apologies from fellow Roc Nation artist Rita Ora, who beat her out for a role in the upcoming film, The Fast And The Furious 6, recently. Rihanna was slated to star opposite Vin Diesel and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in the action-adventure movie as a villainous character. But, producers were immediately smitten with Rita once she auditioned for the role.
“Rihanna impressed movie bosses with her role in Battleship,” a source told The Sun. “But, schedules didn’t work out and Rita really shone during castings. They loved her look and her attitude.”
This isn’t the first time Rita and Rihanna have shown they have similar taste. The two fashionistas have often showed up on the red carpet in the same garb, causing some Ri-Ri fans to call Rita a copycat. Think these ladies will be able to kiss and make up—or do you think Rihanna will see this latest move on Rita’s part as an unforgivable betrayal?
