Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o will co-star in a heist movie based on a MEME that was inspired by a photo of them sitting together at a fashion show. There’s no title or timeframe yet, but Netflix bought the rights to it.
In 2014, Rihanna and Lupita were photographed sitting together at some fashion show, and later it began making the rounds on social media. Rihanna was all glammed-up, and was wearing sunglasses, while Lupita was rocking the ‘intellectual’ look, with black-rimmed glasses and a collared shirt under a suit-like top. The tweet suggest the two are plotting a heist.
Some people suggested “Selma” director Ava DuVernay for the project, and it started picking up steam. Eventually, all three women said they’d be down for it, and now it’s happening.

Rihanna may be the rude girl of the music industry, but she has a huge heart. She is making a way for others to receive higher education. Rihanna announced her plans to donate some money to 50 qualified college students.
That’s right. The Grammy-winning singer and songwriter has announced a global scholarship program through her Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF), which will award scholarships to international and U.S. students going to college in the U.S.
“To be able to give the gift of an education is actually an honor,” says Rihanna. “Higher education will help provide perspective, opportunities and learning to a group of kids who really deserve it. I am thrilled to be able to do this.”
In order to be eligible, applicants must be residents of Barbados, Brazil, Cuba, Haiti, Guyana, Jamaica, or the U.S., and have already been accepted into a bachelor’s degree program at an accredited four-year college or university in the United States for the 2016-2017 year.
The scholarship is based on need and the number of students will vary, but the goal is to accept as many students as possible, according to the announcement. Scholarships granted will range from $5,000 to $50,000 and may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first.
Applications for the full-tuition grant are open now through June 10, 2016. A committee will screen 50 finalists based on academic performance, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience and a personal essay, and the scholarship winners will be announced by August, 2016.
The longtime friends and collaborators have been “secretly dating for months,” a source tells PEOPLE exclusively. On Wednesday night, the duo showed off their chemistry on stage at the Forum during the second night of her Anti World Tour in Los Angeles. In the middle of performing their hit song “Work” (which is the first song in 2016 to go multi-platinum three times), Rihanna – whose album #ANTI is also the first album to go multi-platinum twice this year – brought out her man and danced sexily with him, grabbing his jacket and pulling him closer to her. (Meanwhile, Drake’s newly released Views sold more than 1 million copies and was streamed on Apple Music more than 250 million times in first week.)
Think about it late nights in the studio and grinding real close on video set can trigger feelings and emotions.
