Rihanna Will Slay & Be Slayed in Bates Motel


By Joanne Rosa

Bad girl RiRi has been casted as the notorious Marion Crane in A&E’s Bates Motel.

In the original 1960’s Psycho, Crane only makes it through a few scenes before she gets the axe.


According to executive producer Kerry Ehrin, Rihanna’s story is about a contemporary woman with some edge… who isn’t perfect, who isn’t always perfectly sweet… but we’re rooting for her.

Sounds like Rihanna may not have to act too much.

Entertainment Weekly says that her character will appear in more than one episode of the final season of Bates Motel.


Ehrin shared that “Marion Crane is a charismatic woman, she’s super present when she’s with [Norman Bates] and she’s very attractive.” We expect her appearance to be hotter than ever.

Like it or not, we’ll have to say goodbye to this bad girl at some point in the season.


Bates Motel returns to A&E for it’s final season on February 20th at 10 p.m. ET. Watch EW’s exclusive first look of Rihanna’s appearance.
