Rihanna’s Valerian Character is also a Pop Star
With her latest film, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, set to open later this month, singer Rihanna is giving fans a closer look at Bubble, the character she’ll be playing. Via her Instagram page, the pop icon shared a short behind-the-scenes video of the various looks she’ll be sporting in the film, as well as what it was like to work with acclaimed director Luc Besson (The Professional, La Femme Nikita).
Previously described as a stripper, Rihanna says her character of Bubble is so much more. “She’s an intergalactic cabaret-ready star,” the Bajan beauty told ET earlier this month. “She is a shape-shifter who can take on any form you can imagine. She’s everyone’s fantasy girl because people see in her what they want and desire.”
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets opens nationwide on Friday, July 21st. The film co-stars Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne, Ethan Hawke, and Clive Owen.
