RIHANNA has just joined the military!

Just kidding. Actually, the Barbadian singer is starring in “Battleship,” a movie adaptation of the classic board game of the same name. Riri plays a tough naval officer who helps battle aliens alongside Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgard, and Taylor Kitsch.

Despite the fact that she’s already got a fit physique, Rihanna admits that she had to undergo physical training with real military officers to prepare for her badass chick role.  She shares:

“We worked with real military people, you know, people in the Navy, people who have fought in Iraq before… They pretty much came and drilled me. This one man, Donald, he pretty much drilled me, yelled at me, cursed me, ‘Ow!’ Made me do pushups.”

She adds:

“I really want to say, ‘F*ck you’ right back, but then he probably would have thrown me through the window! I was so scared I just stood there and looked at him like, ‘I swear I’m going to get it right, I swear, I swear, I swear I’ll be good.’”

Entertainment news reveals that “Battleship” will hit theaters in May 2012.
