Chart-Topping Singer Rihanna to Star in Reality Show Reuters
Rihanna is getting a reality show. The Grammy-winning singer, who has been a fixture on the pop charts, will star in a competition-style show on Style Network focused on the fashion world, Reuters reports.
“Styled to Rock,” scheduled to bow in the second half of 2013, will spotlight 12 young designers competing to create outfits for celebrities, the story reports. The contestants will be handpicked by Rihanna, according to the report.
“The designers will be tasked with styling a celebrity guest on each episode, and the guest will help determine which designer moves on to the next round of the competition,” the story reports.
Rihanna, 24, will executive produce under her given name, Robyn Rihanna Fenty.
The singer said in a statement: "Fashion has always played an integral part in my life and career. I am so excited to partner with Style Network and share my creative insight with these 12 designers and give them this opportunity to showcase their work.”
“The series will piggyback on a British show of the same name in which Rihanna appeared over the summer,” the piece adds.
