Rihanna as Josephine Baker?

Rihanna Is Rumored to Play Josephine Baker

Rihanna is known for many things: Singing, dressing provocatively, designing terrible-looking clothes, rocking the hell out of a bikini. What she is not known for is her acting. Still, word on the street is that she's been cast to play Joséphine Baker in a new biopic.

Baker was a very complex and layered woman: Singer, actress, dancer, civil rights activist and spy for the French Resistance. While she may be remembered for her Banana Dance, she was deeply committed to human rights — refusing to perform for segregated audiences — and in 1963 she spoke at the March on Washington as the only official speaker who was a woman. She was married four times — the first time when she was 13 — and went on to adopt 12 orphans from various countries.
