The 'Talk That Talk' singer says she won't be recording a new album any time soon.

Rihanna has confirmed plans to focus on developing her film career over the course of this year and taking a step back from music as a result.

That 'We Found Love' star released her fifth album 'Loud' and sixth album 'Talk That Talk' in quick succession last year, and says she won't be recording a new record for some time.

"I don't have time off but I am not recording," Rihanna told Jonathan Ross during his ITV1 chat show.

The 'You Da One' singer will make her film debut this summer in Hollywood blockbuster Battleship as Petty Officer Raikes, and says the experience has made her want more movie roles.

"This year I want to delve more into the movie industry, I had a little experience with Battleship," Rihanna explained. "I had a great time the first time so I want to continue picking the right roles so I can master them and see what happens."

Rihanna's appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show will air at 9.20pm on ITV1 tomorrow (3rd March) where she is expected to perform her new single 'Talk That Talk'.
