Rihanna was offered special cameo in musical movie Annette with Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard


Rihanna was offered special cameo in quirky musical movie Annette with Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard (but she turned it down)

The musical drama Annette starring Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard will be released on August 20.

And the film’s French director Leos Carax confirmed to USA Today that he originally wrote in a cameo for Rihanna who he wanted to appear in the movie.

Variety had reported back in 2017 that the superstar would join Driver in the quirky project but her reps quickly shot down the report saying it wasn’t true.

However, Carax said that he did write a part for the Barbadian multi-hyphenate but she turned it down.

In Annette, Driver and Cotillard star as a comedian and an opera singer who conceive a child together who has very special talents.

Annette is played by a wooden puppet and the plot turns on how she becomes a global singing sensation as a toddler.

Carax told USA Today that the cameo he wrote for Rihanna called for her to play herself.

‘It was a small part written specifically for her,’ the filmmaker explained. ‘When Baby Annette becomes famous, there was a duet between the puppet and Rihanna. But then Rihanna feels upstaged by this baby.”

Carax worked with Sparks for almost a decade on the project and the musical duo contributed original songs to the film which premiered at Cannes in early July.

Meanwhile, Rihanna has been celebrating the phenomenally successful launch this week of her new Fenty perfume.  

The billionaire 33-year-old posted a photo to Instagram Tuesday showing herself lounging in bed while eating caviar from a bowl on a silver platter. 

She wrote in the caption: ‘how I woke up after #FENTYPARFUM sold out this morning!!!’

Infused with scents such as musk, vanilla, and tangerine, Fenty Eau De Parfum sold out just hours after it officially launched on August 10th.

The impressive feat comes just weeks after Rihanna celebrated another financial milestone with her new status as a billionaire. 

The singer and businesswoman is worth a whopping $1.7 billion, Forbes claimed, making her one of the richest female musicians on the planet.

It is claimed the bulk of the popstar’s fortune ($1.4billion) comes not from music, but from her 50 percent stake in her acclaimed cosmetics line Fenty Beauty – a joint venture with French luxury goods conglomerate LVMH – and worth $2.8billion in total. 

Her $270million (£190million) stake in the wildly successful Savage X Fenty lingerie line and her wealth from her 16 year recording career all contribute to her massive wealth.
