Rihanna is soldiering into 2012.
The 23-year-old singer just posted an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at her upcoming, action packed film Battleship on her official YouTube channel.
Rih plays resident weapons officer Raikes in the film, and says she learned the ropes for it by shadowing an actual member of the United States Navy.
“I watched her and I just really lived and breathed in her mindset and tried to really get into her character,” Rihanna says. Check out the video below:
