The 'Part Of Me' singer says the 'We Found Love' star has a completely natural ability to act.

Katy Perry has praised Rihanna's talent as an actress and says she can't wait to watch her starring in upcoming sci-fi epic Battleship.

The 'Teenage Dream' singer is well known to be close friends with the Bajan star, and says she was really impressed with Rihanna's acting in the music video for 'We Found Love' last year. 

"She's an amazing actress," Katy told MTV News this week. "I think the 'We Found Love' video is so on point, especially how it's delivered. 

"Even though it's controversial, it is exactly a moment in that person's life and it's so well delivered," Katy explained. "You have to be a natural actress to be able to do that so I give her props." 

The 'Part Of Me' singer added that she is "very excited" about watching Rihanna in Battleship later this year, in which the 'Talk That Talk' star appears as a Navy weapons officer.

Katy Perry recently confirmed that a duet between herself and Rihanna will definitely happen but that the two are taking their time to ensure it isn't anticlimactic for their fans.
