Singer Rihanna has denied that she will feature in a Whitney Houston biopic.
"That's just rumours. I never heard anything about that," contactmusic.com quoted the 24-year-old as saying.
The speculation is thought to have stemmed from an interview in which Rihanna said she would give her "entire life" to play the performer who died in February.
"That would be something that I would have to give my entire life to do, because I would really want to pull it off. That's a huge, huge role, and whoever does it has to do a good job," she said.
"My first song that I remember falling in love with was a Whitney Houston song: I Will Always Love You. It was really inspiring, and it made me develop a passion for music, so really, she's partly responsible for me being here in this industry," she added.
