Rihanna gets into the reality-competition show business

"Big news coming tomorrow!," Rihanna promised Tuesday on Twitter -- but did she deliver? Sure she did, if launching a new fashion-design competition series counts as big news in these reality-TV-laden days.

Rihanna and the Style Network will be teaming to present "Styled to Rock," the cable network's first competition show, debuting next year. After a nationwide search, the pop star will personally select a dozen designers looking to "take their work to the next level," the network said Wednesday in a statement, and then give them a chance to dress "some of the biggest names in entertainment," none of whom were named.

Riri will also get an assist from three expert mentor-types who'll work with the competitors -- and then help cull the herd over the course of 10 hourlong episodes.
