Rihanna is once again slated for a talk show appearance.

As was the case with her recent “Good Morning America” visit, that appearance is unfortunately not expected to feature a musical performance.

ABC confirms that Rihanna will appear as an interview guest on the April 1 edition of “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will also guest on the episode, while Death Cab for Cutie is scheduled to provide the evening’s music.

Rihanna, who voices the lead female role in DreamWorks’ animated film “Home,” is once again making waves in the music world. She just released “Bitch Better Have My Money,” which is the official follow-up to her collaborative single “FourFiveSeconds.”

Other upcoming “Kimmel” guests include Vin Diesel, Kurt Russell and Jason Statham. Listings follow:

Monday, March 30: Vin Diesel, Music from Van Halen
Tuesday, March 31: Kurt Russell, Jeff Ross, Music from Van Halen
Wednesday, April 1: Dwayne Johnson, Rihanna, Music from Death Cab for Cutie
Thursday, April 2: Jason Statham, Music from Brian Wilson
