It’s about damn time Coldplay and Rihanna released their music video for “Princess of China” considering how many photos and teasers they threw our way. Thankfully it was worth the wait.
We already knew RiRi would look like a gangsta goth geisha (since she tweeted a photo) but the continuation of these nail rings that look like gold eagle talons is slightly concerning.
The best part of the entire video is when Chris Martin and Rihanna kneel in front of each other on the sand and stare into each other’s eyes with this quiet desperation that doesn’t seem completely staged. They’re mourning the loss of their love.
Other than that hawt almost-makeup sesh, I love when the two fighters leap into the air in slow-mo armed with their samurai swords, wearing light, flowy clothes. We don’t see an actual battle but my bet would be on Rihanna because that girl is super tough.
This is the fourth single off Coldplay’s fifth studio album Mylo Xyloto.
Watch it here:
Rihanna going topless is losing it’s wow factor, as in: “I’ve already seen her bare it all and roll a joint on some dudes head, so no, I’m not shocked that Rihanna is going topless.”
Still, it would be amiss of us to totally braze over these GORG photos like they’re no big deal. Soon RiRi will be releasing her second scent, the deceivingly titled Nude and the early promo shots leaked on Friday via web.stagram.
Rihanna sports a blond wig and apparently they saved a few bucks by not hiring a wardrobe person. Will you buy the scent?
I guess we’re due for some Rihanna/Chris Brown drama seeing as it’s been relatively peaceful on the front for the past little while. Naturally, the latest battle is a result of an offensive lyric and the two are hashing it out on Twitter, because every minor spat has to be public.
Yesterday Chris Brown tweeted a link to his freestyle version of Kanye West’s “Theraflu,” in which he raps about his “old bitch.” ”Don’t f**k with my old bitch it’s like a bad fur / Every industry n***a done had her / Shook the tree like a pumpkin just to smash her / Bitch is breaking codes, but I’m the password.”
Though he denies the so-called “old bitch” is RiRi, everyone automatically jumped to their own conclusions, including his ex-girlfriend. TMZ reported that Rihanna stopped following him, causing Brown to comment about her assumption.
I can never keep up with these two. One minute they’re collaborating on “Birthday Cake” and the next they’re taking shots at each other. That said, if these two don’t want to their rocky relationship to be in the media headlines, shouldn’t they stop tweeting each other? Twitter has become a barometer for their relationship.
Listen to the song below:
It’s okay everyone! Rihanna is alright, despite this concerning photo she tweeted of herself with an IV in her arm yesterday. Sure, lady shares scandalous photos of herself on vacation in Hawaii but it’s not all beaches and bikinis.
After staying mum on Twitter for a while a fan tweeted her: ”What da f**x good?! You been quiet all day.” Rihanna responded with the photo above, which concerned fans since she skipped a Saturday Night Live dress rehearsal due to illness a few days ago
She looked flawless at the Met Gala red carpet earlier this week so it’s hard to imagine her sick, but she was already back up on a flight to Los Angeles later that evening. And of course, she’ll be performing on the American Idol finale in two weeks.
After three behind the scenes videos we’re finally granted the final visuals for Rihanna’s “Where Have You Been.” RiRi is a tribal, voodoo hunter prowling for her mate in the Dave Meyers directed video.
Here are five key scenes:
The music video opens in a foggy, moss-strewn pond with a submerged Rihanna peering above the waterline and diving back down like an alligator. When she comes up completely she’s naked except for the scaly pasties covering her lady bits.
Next, Rihanna is the only lady leading a crew of warriors in the sandy, rocky desert. Everyone wears tribal or animal prints and Rihanna rocks red Hammer pants that sway perfectly with her dance moves.
Next, Rihanna is in a dark cave, sitting on a zebra-print carpet in a black lacy dress. She dances gracefully with the other ladies, sometimes prowling so low she looks like a tiger stalking prey. The best part is when she huddles with the dancers and they create a giant, blinking eye with their arms.
The Owl Nest
Rihanna nests on a gigantic, twiggy patch, shaded by pink blossoms, calling for her mate.
We saw kaleidoscopic scenes in Nicki Minaj’s video for “Starships” and now Rihanna pulls the same trippy moves. Her eyes are framed by a gold mask and her body doubles and triples with every movement.
Rihanna returns to her mossy swamp at the end of the video to continue searching for her lost companion.
Watch it here:
Looks like Rihanna’s new video for “Where Have You Been” will have a voodoo tribal feel, as the dancers don shredded shawls, beaded jewels and wooden bangles.
I’m getting tired of musicians releasing promo after promo for their new music videos (take Justin Bieber with “Boyfriend”). By the time the video comes out, I’m either severely annoyed at seeing the five-second clips so many times or I feel like I’ve seen the entire video already.
However, I like that Rihanna is giving us a behind the scenes look again, in her second teaser for “Where Have You Been.” The video takes us behind the scenes of a costume fitting, panning racks and racks of feathered jewelry and animal prints (salivate). In the video, RiRi jokes around about the pasties she has to wear to prevent any wardrobe malfunctions but she insists she doesn’t need any pasties.
