Rihanna Confirmed for a Role on High Profile Reality TV Show

That's "Judge" Rihanna to you. 

The Barbadian popstar has accepted a role in the upcoming series of The Voice (US edition).

Rihanna will act as a "key advisor" to the judges... and woe betide the contestant who gets on her bad side as the We Found Love singer is not known to mince her words.

Riri will follow in the footsteps of Taylor Swift and Chris Martin, who have previously served as advisors on the NBC show.

Aspiring chart-toppers would do well to listen to her advice too, as Rihanna has racked up record sales of more than 190 million.
