Rihanna has so many fans out there of her own that she's usually not someone you think of as being a fan herself. Believe it or not Rihanna has a must-see TV show she doesn't like to miss. The sultry singer is a big fan of the A&E show Bates Motel,which is getting ready to film its fifth and final season.

Rihanna's checking in

CBS News reports that when learning that Rihanna is a fan of the television series spun from the Alfred Hitchcock movie, the top brass at the Bates Motel show made her an offer.

This was one offer that she apparently she didn't want to refuse because her role is set in stone! While she's got some living to do in season 5 first as Marion Crane, it looks as though Rihanna may be looking forward to a shower of a lifetime!

Comic-Con announcement

It was announced at the San Diego Comic-Con on Friday that Rihanna will join the cast of the Bates Motel in a role that the Barbados born singer will knock out of the park. At Comic-Con a video played that showed Rihanna spreading the word that she is checking into the Bates Motel. In pure Rihanna fashion she announced her new gig with flare.

In the video playing behind the Bates Motel panel Rihanna is seen saying,"Let me tell you what a bad bitch is about to do. I'm about to check into the Bates Motel very soon." So what is the lady who is known for the unexpected going to do in the television show?

First of all she will reprise the role of Marion Crane. As Hitchcock fans know at one point at themotel she will want to get cleaned up, but that doesn't turn out so good.

The epic shower scene has Rihanna written all over it

Rihannais playing the role that ends with the original Marion getting stabbed in a shower. The Umbrella singer will appear in the role that was first made famous by Janet Leigh decades ago in the Hitchcock movie Psycho.

Rihanna being cast in this role is called"perfect collision of creativity and fate," by the show's producers.

Room 1 shower

Much like Janet Leigh decades ago, Rihanna will may meet her demise in the famous shower in room 1. The scene traditionally involves a very sharp knife, unless the show is putting a modern-day spin on the horror scenario. Either way, this shower will more than likely closeout her role in quite the bloody mess. The Bates Motel stars Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore as the mother-son team Norma and Norman Bates.

The show is set in White Pine Bay, Oregon, the sleepy coastal town.

Bates Motel started back in 2013 and it features the mother and son running this establishment that has lots of eerie ties to it. This isn't the first acting gig for Rihanna, she actually did a great job as a member of the military in the movie Battleship. She was also seen in This is the End, which was a comedy about the apocalypse.
