Rihanna Goes BLUE For Tokyo BATTLESHIP Premiere, Speaks On Portraying Whitney Houston In Biopic

​ ​ ​ ​

Over in Tokyo today, Rihanna hit the official red carpet premiere for her upcoming flick Battleship rocking Emilio Pucci.  Check out her blue floral satin pantsuit inside...

Still rocking the long black party-shaven hairstyle she recently switched up to, Rihanna and her co-stars and fans braved storm-force winds and rain in Tokyo.  The all-star cast includes Rihanna [in her first movie], Alexander Skarsgard, Brooklyn Decker (in Stella McCartney), Tadanobu Asano and Taylor Kitsch, all pictured.

Rihanna rocked this Fall 2012 Emilio Pucci blue and gold metallic pantsuit/pajamas style look for her big premiere.  Apparently pajama style is all the rage because we've seen Rih in this look before as well as other celeb red carpet staples.

She kept her jewelry gold toned and tan heels for the occasion.

Nice.  Battleship premieres May 18th.

And here's a few more of her personal Instagram pics showing off her new 'do:

Rihanna also spoke with the Associated Press this week and the subject of Whitney Houston's biopic came up.  And, as rumored for a while now, Rihanna spoke about portraying the icon herself:

“That would be something that I would have to give my entire life to do because I would want to really pull it off,” she said to The Press Association. “That’s a huge, huge role and whoever does it has to do a good job.”

“My first song that I remember falling in love with was a Whitney Houston song — ‘I Will Always Love You,’” she continued. “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.”

Rihanna is a ho that is alive and well, your " Icon" is dead and died like the common crack ho that she was! Don't u see that its only niggers lauding this bitch.

RIhanna doesnt have to sing to play Whitney. Duh! Halle Berry played Dorothy Dandridge and she didnt sing. Also her outfit is a japanese outfit. She is Japan promoting her movie so it's make sense for her to wear the outfit.

Rihanna if not looking trashy

Rihanna if not looking trashy she looks stupid and them PJs are a hot mess. Rihanna playing Whitney would be the worst disgrace of all time and Whitney would turn over in her grave. I will start a petition if I hear anything more about her playing Whitney that would be a total disgrace. Rihanna cant sing her own songs so what could she do with Whitney's? Drake says something about working with Aliyah and BAM! she goes black she will copy someones style but cant copy talent..

That's why its called acting.

That's why its called acting. You don't have to be a Singer to play one in a movie. Angela Basset did a great job of playing Tina Turner and she's not a Singer. I think some of you hate Rihanna so much you can't even think rationally. I think she may be able to pull it off. She looked like Whitney when she had that curly brown and black weave.

@ Anonymous 12:42pm-Apr 3, 12

@ Anonymous 12:42pm-Apr 3, 12 How Dare You! You Judgemental Ignorant Piece of Trash! Who are you to judge? Even though I hate the way she left this world non of the ladies in this day and time have the whole package like she did. Not only did she have the best voice of any female vocalist she was beautiful and very very articulate. Name one other singer that has that kind of voice and beauty! Nothing against Rih she's cute w/ a horrible voice. Bey is pretty and inarticulate and her voice was never on the level I could even listen too. J-Hud voice is extremely unpretty and so are her looks! Mariah can sing but even her voice has changed through the years. Christina A has a good voice but she like the rest is missing something. Name any one w/ her voice beauty and fun personality! None of them can even come close. I like Rih's music for getting on the treadmill in a few years she will be history and well forgotton but Whitney's beautiful voice will live on forever and will never be forgotton! My standards are way too high after hearing her voice to even be a fan of these less talented sub par performers. Let's face it I hate that she allowed drugs to mess up her life but she still accomplished more than any of the other females COMBINED and have accomplished just in her 48yrs of living what will take others a lifetime to do! TV, Movies 180 million records world wide movie sound tracks. The #1 gospel album selling to date and she gave to many many organizations when she had it to give. So no one is idolizing her. Her body of work speaks for itself! I have never ever tried drugs but I will never ever judge those who have fallen victim to them. ONLY GOD WILL JUDGE US and she has paid the ultimate cost w/ her life for her addiction! When God saw she was not able to beat her addiction He told her enough is enough. My Mercy Will Not Always Strive w/ Man. He made the final judgement and took her out of this world. Let her Rest In Peace! The next time you decide to cast judgement take a good look in the mirror I am pretty sure you are FAR FROM PERFECTION!

LMAO, So that ghetto

LMAO, So that ghetto inspired, uneducated rant that you just delivered is not judgement? Bitch please when you are gonna come at me please come correct, U wanna call my opinion of Whitney judgement I like to refer to it as the TRUTH, yet you dont seem to think that your trifling rebuttal was not judgement laden from the beginning to the end. Please what you don't like for yourself don't dish to others. These imbecile can disrespect Rihanna all day every day and u bastards thinks it is so funny but say something about one of your so call icons and its the end of the world. The bitch was a crack out ho who wasted her voice and her life. So get over yourself and accept the truth. She was no Mother Teresa. And for the record bitch i can say whatever I want just like you, its America aint it? So fuck you and the horse you rode in on. Now back to the attic from whence you came. Nonsense.

@Anonymous 6:22am- Apr 4, You

@Anonymous 6:22am- Apr 4, You are such a pathetic loser! You either are a self-hating black person or a self-hating hispanic that wants to be white or just plain white trash to make a statement saying that only what white america says counts. What a stupid stupid comment ! To come on YBF and make a comment like that shows how much of a worthless lost soul you really are! If that is the case why do you even come on this site? There are plenty of sites that just cater only to white america. Do us a favor and comment on those sites only! Whatever race you are one thing is for sure you are a self-hating narrow minded good for nothing low life reject! The more I think about it you sound like a black backwards bow down lick butt individual that holds high regard to what white america says! You ignorant moron! So white america backs you up on this one. That statement alone shows me how much of a fool you are. FYI her furneral was watched from Africa to Europe to Arabic speaking countries all types of people were touched by her death. People that were fans of hers came from all walks of life. So excuse my french what the hell does your stupid comment about white america backing you up have to do w/ any thing! People that loved her were black white and everything in between! So do yourself a favor and stop letting what you think white america feels about Whitney Houston give you the confidence you obvious don't have on your own to say make stupid comments. Needing white america to cosign your comments shows me how much of a weak minded person you are. Do everyone a favor and stand on her on 2 feet without using white america has your crutch! Break free of the slave like mentality! I have heard it all "white america backs me up". Really?

Not to mention how she's clowned Cassie for this hair style in the past. All of a sudden, Rihanna has set the trend. I actually think the pajamas are cute, but she did not shut the other chick down--and she is completely capable of doing it. I think she's beautiful.

Why is she wearing pajamas

Why is she wearing pajamas with a belt? No even fly. Don't think she should play Whitney - but hey you never know - the right acting coach and she might be able to pull it off. Won't really really need her to sing - because thats what voice over is for.

Somebody mentioned Kelly Rowland, that may not be such a bad idea. They do have some likenesses, and her voice is strong enough to at least attempt a Whitney song, and it would be GREAT for her career, no more XFactor. Either way, I still want that project to wait a bit, it's still too soon
