[Video] Rihanna Checks Into The Bates Motel This Monday

Rihanna is now 5th on the all time list and has scored 22 Top 5 hits on Billboard surpassing The King Elvis Presley at 21 but still trails the all time leaders The Beatles with 29, Madonna 28, Mariah Carey 26 and Janet Jackson 24. The fifth season of “Bates Motel” began February 20th and this Monday night at 10pm on A&E it will be episode 5 of the 10 episode final season and you can see RiRi playing the role of the iconic Marion Crane originally portrayed by Janet Leigh in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 groundbreaking film Psycho featuring the horrific shower scene. She loves making music and performing but clearly she has the acting bug and will be apart of the cast of Ocean’s 8 and in the sci-fi movie Valerian. The Bajan beauty is a big fan of Bates Motel and the series is putting a new twist on the Marion Crane character when Rihanna checks in as a motel guest. The Psycho prequel will introduce the character in the first of a two-part episode “Dreams Die First” concluding the story line with “Marion” next Monday March 27th.” In terms of actually scripting the episodes, the producers Kerry Ehrin and Carlton Cuse felt it was important to honor both the show and the movie without doing a disservice to either which added an extra layer of pressure for writers “It was a lot of pressure to make the appearance have a point as opposed to like, ‘Hey, we’re doing Psycho. That was really important to us. In the end we felt happy with where we got with it, just in terms of telling Norma and Norman’s story and bringing Marion Crane into that loop and having it all kind of lead to a meaningful conclusion.”
