SHE may have won eight Grammys, two Brits and a string of World’s Sexiest Woman awards – but Rihanna will not be happy until she has an Oscar to her name. The Bajan singer, 29, is returning to the big screen in sci-fi action flick Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets, out next month.
And while this role might be more of a summer blockbuster and light on Academy Award-winning angst, RiRi is eyeing up meatier parts so she can join Cher and Jennifer Hudson as pop stars who have won acting’s highest accolade.
She told The Sun on Sunday: “I’d love to get there one day. Who doesn’t want to be told they are doing a great job?
“Any validation that your work is impacting is rewarding. I work hard and put my all into everything I do but the rest isn’t up to me.
“I don’t think anyone makes an album thinking about winning a Grammy, or makes a movie thinking about winning an Oscar. What you do is work as hard as you can and if awards follow, then that’s great.”
