Bar­ba­dian singer Ri­hanna (above), who is act­ing in Va­le­rian and Ocean’s Eight, prefers to give her best, and not think about awards. “I don’t think any­one makes an al­bum think­ing about win­ning a Grammy, or makes a movie think­ing about win­ning an Os­car. What you do is work as hard as you can and if awards fol­low, then that’s great,” she says.

How­ever she doesn’t deny that get­ting some val­i­da­tion, boosts self-con­fi­dence. She says, “I’d love to get there one day. Who doesn’t want to be told they are do­ing a great job? Any val­i­da­tion that your work has an im­pact, is re­ward­ing. I work hard and put my all into ev­ery­thing I do, but the rest isn’t up to me.”

The singer who plays the role of a shape-shift­ing en­ter­tainer in Va­le­rian says that though she didn’t method act for the movie, she finds it in­ter­est­ing. Ri­hanna says that she has the ut­most re­spect for the ac­tors who method act.

“If you look at the well­known method ac­tors of the gen­er­a­tion, they put in in­cred­i­ble per­for­mance af­ter in­cred­i­ble per­for­mance. It’s no co­in­ci­dence,” she says.

Ri­hanna says that she does what’s best for her char­ac­ter and she would love to try out a dark and dif­fer­ent role to chal­lenge her­self. She also in­sists that she does not act like a diva on a movie set. “I of­fer my­self like clay to di­rec­tors. You don’t do diva on film sets,” says the singer who is known for songs such as Work (2016) and Di­a­mond (2012).
