Rihanna is coming to TV!
After dominating the charts with her new album Unapologetic, starring in a blockbuster summer flick, Battleship, and releasing her own perfume, Rihanna is capping off her busy year by teaming up with Style Network to executive produce and star in their first-ever competition reality series.
No, this won't be an inside look into the singer's relationship with Chris Brown, which has been courting its fair share of headlines recently. Styled to Rock is a reality series where music meets fashion in the search for the next great fashion design superstar, and who better to pick the show's contestants than one of the music industry's most fashionable artists?!
Set to premiere in 2013, the 10-episode series gives 12 up-and-coming designers, who are selected by Rihanna, the chance to create pieces for celebs and be crowned America's next trendsetting designer.
"Fashion has always played an integral part in my life and career," Rihanna says in a statement. "I am so excited to partner with Style Network and share my creative insight with these 12 designers and give them this opportunity to showcase their work."
As for teaming up with the singer, Style Media President Salaam Coleman Smith explains, "Rihanna is a trailblazer, a trendsetter and the epitome of style. She has a powerful and unique point-of-view that transcends every aspect of pop culture, including fashion, and is a leading creative force."
