Rihanna recently announced that she'd like to portray recently-deceased R&B icon Whitney Houston in the rumored Clive Davis Whitney biopic. Of the role, Rihanna told The Press Association, "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."


Ri-Ri names Whitney's hit single "I Will Always Love You" as one of the things that inspired her to become a singer. She says that Whitney helped her "develop a passion for music," and went on to say that Whitney is "partly responsible for me being here in this industry."


If the biopic even happens (it hasn't even been officially announced and Clive Davis has denied rumors), Rihanna is going to have a hell of a lot of competition! Divas Jennifer Hudson, Vivica Fox, and Jordin Sparks have all been mentioned as possibilities for the lead role. What do you guys think? Would Rihanna make a good Whitney Houston?
