Rihanna is checking into A&E’s Bates Motel fifth and final season, reviving the iconic Marion Crane character from Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, previously played by Janet Leigh. As a refresher: Marion checked into the Bates Motel but never checked out after Norman — dressed as his mother, Norma — stabbed her to death in the shower.

Rihanna was at Comic-Con this weekend and made the announcement public via a cell-phone video. “Let me tell you what a bad bitch is about to do,” she says in the video. “I’m about to check into the Bates Motel, very soon.”

“Season 5 is about the ways in which our show does and more specifically does not intersect with the events of Psycho,” showrunner Carlton Cuse told THR after the season finale. “We are going to see a version of Norman that is much closer now to the one in the movie, but the way in which he acts and the events in the story will not be the same as the movie. They will cross paths with some of the events in the movie and lead to an ultimate resolution. What that resolution is and how that plays out is something that will be not disconnected to the movie Psycho but will be very much our own story in the same way the entire series has been.”

For Rihanna, meanwhile, Bates marks her biggest scripted acting role to date. The casting comes after the singer revealed that she was a big fan of the A&E series in a Vanity Fair cover story.

“I read this article in which she said she was a fan of “Bates Motel,” executive producer Carlton Cuse explained. “We asked and she said yes. It was awesome. We’re really excited about it. It really feels very much like the version of the character that is different from the movie.”

Cuse also said that the Marion character is one they wanted to make sure to include before wrapping the A&E series next year. “We wanted her to very much be her own character and we felt in order to do that we needed to find someone who was very, very special to play Marion.” Also on the panel with Cuse were executive producer Kerry Ehrin and stars Vera Farmiga (Norma), Freddie Highmore (Norman), Nestor Carbonell (Alex) and Max Thieriot (Dylan).

“Bates Motel” will begin production this fall in Vancouver and will return for a final season in 2017 on A&E.

Rihanna’s FENTY x PUMA collection continues to churn out new colorways in an effort to sustain consumer frenzy. On July 28, the collection will release a camouflage iteration of its creeper style.

Priced at 140 euros, or $154, the shoe will become available for sale on Puma’s web site and in select stores.

Prior creeper iterations have sold out in rapid pace. Other recent Fenty releases — including the furry slide and high-top, have also sold out.

Rihanna is preparing for Fenty’s next season, according to sources, which is expected to be presented in a new format. Prior, the collections had been shown with a runway show during New York Fashion Week.

Dior has shared an exclusive backstage video of the shooting of the Dior sunglasses collection starring Rihanna lensed by photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino and an intimate interview with the singer of Sledgehammer.

 

Dior:Is it the first time you work with Jean-Baptiste Mondino?

Rihanna: Yes, but he has been on the bucket list for a while.

Dior: What do you like the most about his way of taking photographs?

Rihanna: He’s fast, and gives incredibly precise direction.

Dior: What is the atmosphere on set?

Rihanna: He plays the BEST music on set, tons of old school R&B. Not once did I have to change the music.

Dior: Could you share an anecdote about this shooting?

Rihanna: This shoot was done under unique circumstances. I came straight from a show, spent a lot of time getting my weave taken out, but once we got to set no time was wasted. He knows exactly what he wants, and does not hold back his personality, which was delightful.

Dior: What is your personal relationship with the House’s creations?

Rihanna: It doesn’t get more personal than designing for this house. It’s an honor, and I STILL can’t believe that I’ve been given this opportunity.

Dior: Could you describe your new sunglasses?

Rihanna: They’re futuristic, yet sporty at the same time.

Dior: Can you tell us about your inspiration?

Rihanna: Believe it or not, La Forge from “Star Trek” back in the day! I’ve always been obsessed with his eyewear, and when I got to Dior and saw all the materials I could play with, it all just came together.

Dior: What was the creation process with the Dior teams?

Rihanna: The process was pretty seamless. I spent a day at Dior with their eyewear design team. Started by looking through all the archives to see what they’ve done in the past, then got acquainted with all the new materials! I literally sat there drew, and drew until I was happy with the design, and the team illustrated it for me right then and there. We picked materials and colors that same day, and after that it was a matter of weeks before I saw the first prototype.

Dior: According to you, what is the best occasion to wear them?

Rihanna: All Summer Long, but definitely whenever you want.

Dior: What could you hide behind your sunglasses?

Rihanna: What you’re thinking!… before it comes out of your mouth. Ha!

Dior & Rihanna sunglasses are available in the shops and on Dior.com
