More details about Smurfs movie

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the head of Paramount Pictures, Brian Robbins, declared that Rihanna is “the most legendary Smurfette ever.” Well, fans are wondering how Katy Perry feels after the statement since she played Smurfette in the 2011 animated movie The Smurfs.

Sadly, there was no update on any original music for the project. Fans may recall further that Rihanna also provided the voice of Tip, one of the main characters in the 2015 animated film Home. As part of the project, she executive-produced a concept album with eight original songs. She performed three of them and co-wrote four of them. Pinkvilla will keep you updated on the recent news about this film. Stay tuned.
