Good news, Gladiators. Rihanna is a huge Scandal fan, too!
"I love Scandal! Are you kidding?" Ri-Ri gushed to us exclusively last night at the MAC Cosmetics and MAC AIDS Fund premiere of the new documentary It's Not Over in West Hollywood.
Rihanna says she would totally be down for a guest-starring role on the show. "We'll see—I would love that," she smiled. "I just love Scandal, period."
As for who she would play, we suggested an evil nemesis to Washington's character Olivia Pope. Perhaps badass Secretary of State Ri-Ri?
"Duh!" Rihanna laughed at the idea. "That's amazing." Let's make it happen!
Last Monday, the "Stay" singer posted a bunch of pics from her visit to the White House in Washington, D.C. "'CYRUS!!! LET ME IN!!' #DayAtTheWhiteHouse," she captioned one pic in reference to character Cyrus Beene, played by Jeff Perry, who is the president's chief of staff.
Rihanna shared another photo but called out Tony Goldwyn's character President Fitzgerald Grant. ""Fitz, darling..." she wrote while channeling Olivia Pope.
In a third, Ri-Ri hit up the White House pressroom and pretended to be current Scandal Press Secretary Abby Whelan (played by Darby Stanchfield). "#heyAbby," Ri-Ri wrote with a pic of herself standing at the pressroom podium.
