Rihanna Takes Manhattan

Recuperating pop star Rihanna has surfaced in Manhattan with her mentor Jay-Z and his wife, Beyoncé.


The "Umbrella" singer was dressed to the nineteens in a tight white tee, jeans, a fur hoodie, biker gloves and bright pink nails! RiRi's reportedly abusive beau, Chris Brown, was back in L.A. as the singer again celebrated her 21st birthday with a bash at NY hotspot Da Silvano. The previous evening, Rihanna had a late dinner with Jay, Beyoncé and singer Brandy at Mario Batali's famous restaurant, The Spotted Pig. No pig was spotted.

Aside from the controversy with Chris, Rihanna's name is still in the news -- and the internet is buzzing with word that she's in talks to star in a remake of the classic, "The Bodyguard." "We hear Rihanna's about to become a movie star in 'The Bodyguard' -- a hot, sexy remake costarring Channing Tatum," Laura Schreffler from the NY Daily News dishes to "Extra."

Rihanna's rep denies the report of "The Bodyguard" -- but "Extra" wants to know if you think Rihanna belongs on the big screen! Vote now.
