Rihanna was at Comic-Con this weekend and made the announcement public via a cell-phone video. "Let me tell you what a bad bitch is about to do," she says in the video. "I'm about to check into the Bates Motel, very soon."
Comic-Con attendees also got a first look at Rihanna's role in Luc Besson's upcoming sic-fi film Valerian and The City of a Thousand Planets. Rihanna will play a dancer in an alien bar run by Ethan Hawke.
