Room For One: Watch Rihanna check in to A&E’s new season of ‘Bates Motel’


Never in her life has Rihanna played the victim.

The clapback queen has more shade in her pinky finger than most people will have in their life, and ‘Badgirl RiRi’ has a lengthy history of winning social media beefs. But the tables might turn on her in the new season of Bates Motel.

While her work in Oceans 8 is currently at the forefront of her acting portfolio, Rihanna makes an appearance as character Marion Crane in the final season of the A&E show later this month.


The teaser for season five of Bates Motel debuted yesterday on YouTube, showing a rain-drenched Rihanna innocently asking for a room. From the looks of the trailer, Rihanna will likely face the same murderous fate as Marion in the 1960 thriller Psycho (oh shit, spoiler alert!). We’re curious to see if the possible shower scene will be ‘Rated R’ or leave the bloody details to the imagination.

The final season of Bates Motel debuts on February 20 at 10pm EST.
