(LONDON) — Not long after filming her movie debut in the upcoming action-adventure film Battleship, Rihanna is taking her talents to the small screen. She’s signed on to produce and appear in a new British television show in which fashion designers will compete to create outfits for musicians and other celebrities, according to British television network Sky Living, which will air the series this summer. The winner will get the honor of crafting an outfit for Rihanna’s Barclaycard Wireless performance in London’s Hyde Park in July.
“I’ve always had a great love of fashion,” Rihanna told Sky Living. “It’s a constant source of inspiration in my life, and is a big reason why I’ve grown into the person and artist I am today.”
The You Da One singer will have a major part in the casting process in addition to appearing on the show and serving as an executive producer. British pop star Nicola Roberts will host the series. There’s no word yet on whether the show will air on American television.
