Rihanna replaces Katy Perry as voice of Smurfette in new The Smurfs movie – but furious fans say role ‘belongs’… – The US Sun

RIHANNA decided to take something fans rightly think is Katy Perry’s.

However, Rihanna will play Smurfette in the upcoming The Smurfs film, which will be released in 2025.

Fans on X, fka Twitter, were upset that Katy didn’t get the role back.

“…WAS KATY PERRY BUSY?!?!? I’M SORRY I LOVE RIHANNA BUT THIS IS KATY PERRY’S ROLE,” one fan exploded on the social media platform.

“This is the closest thing to a Katy x Rihanna interaction these days,” remarked another.

Others welcomed the casting change.

“I love this new tradition of having a famous pop singer play Smurfette! First Katy and Demi, now Rihanna?! Girls are thriving,” one X user shared.

Singer Demi Lovato played Smurfette in the 2017 film The Smurfs: The Lost Village.

Katy’s unavailability could be due to her busy schedule.

After season 7 of American Idol, Katy might have some free time on her hands.

Earlier this year, the pop star confirmed she was leaving Idol after seven seasons, blindsideing fans with the explosive news.

Katy Perry crosses her arms across her stomach while filming American Idol in Hawaii as pregnancy rumors rage.

GREAT NEWS

Katy shared the news on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in February.

“This fall, in September, I’m going to do this big music festival in Brazil called Rock in Rio,” she said out of the blue.

“So I think this will probably be my last season of Idol.”

When the crowd gasped, Katy quickly added, “I mean, I love Idol so much.

“It connected me to the heart of America, but I need to feel the pulse of my own rhythm.”

But when Jimmy asked what his fellow Idol judges Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie thought of the decision, Katy shocked fans even more, admitting: “Well, they’ll find out tonight!”

RECENT REACTION

Katy’s departure doesn’t bother many fans.

Idol fans recently criticized Katy for not being judgmental in the same way.

She claimed to be tougher on female competitors while narrowing down this season’s top 24.

On social networks, fans denounced the pop star for his apparent harshness, particularly towards singers.

“Katy Perry is a little tougher this year and not as cartoonish…” revealed one X user.

“Katy Perry is so critical of all female singers…#AmericanIdol,” someone else claimed.

“Why does she always criticize women more than men?” commented another.

“I don’t think these women deserve Katy’s wrath,” one viewer joked.
