It’s no secret that Rihanna is a straight-up boss. From multiple Grammy Awards, to a makeup line for a little company called MAC (you know, NBD), RiRi is clearly no stranger to the hustle. But just how did the 28-year-old become the global phenomenon she is today? A new documentary is about to tell us everything.

According to NylonPeter Berg, the man behind Battleship and Friday Night Lights, has officially signed on to direct a documentary about Rihanna’s life.

The film, for which no release date has yet been announced, will “follow this true international superstar as she navigates life as an artist, businesswoman, and humanitarian, while contending with the inherent pressure of artistic freedom,” according to the article.

Excited? You freakin’ bet. We’re not even going to act like we’re keeping our cool right now. And from what it looks like on Instagram, these two creative geniuses are already hard at work, work, work, work, work.

In case anyone needs it, we’re happy to jump in and lend some creative inspo, too! In fact, here are nine things we’d love to learn about RiRi through the new documentary.


What was her big break?

It's been over 10 years since Rihanna's breakout hit, "Pon de Replay" came out. But is that what RiRi considers her big break? We'd love to know when the pop star finally felt like she arrived. 


What was life in Barbados like?

Before she was an international star, Rihanna was just a girl from Barbados. She's always had the island close to her heart, even performing at Barbados's 2015 Carnival celebration, and we'd love to see what life was like there before the stardom.


How did she meet Jay Z?

We all remember the epic "Umbrella" collab, but when did these two musical geniuses first meet?


What's her creative process like?

We want to know what RiRi is like when she gets into the zone.

We know she slays all the time, but we're wondering if her different projects require different personality traits to shine through.

This girl's style is on point. We have to see how it all comes together on a daily basis.


What's a Saturday night like when she's hanging with her bestie?

Rihanna and her childhood bestie Melissa Forde are like two peas in a pod. We're hoping we get some behind-the-scenes into their relationship. 


Will they mention Chris Brown?

There's still so many questions.
