That song is like 8 months old... why is she just now doing a (terrible) video?
She's the hottest ho alive!
What's "inner" about Rihanna's stripper side?
So for female pop singers it's just sleaze like this or cheese like Taylor Swift? I know I'm getting to be a geezer when I think like this, but where are the Cyndi Laupers or Sinead O'Connors? What do the young smart girls listen to?
Why not just recruit singers at strip clubs and skip a couple stages?
"Inner stripper"? Seems pretty "outer" to me.
Just the one?
So, back to my question, does anyone know why she is just now releasing a video for such an old song? Don't you all think that is strange?
Weird that it's coming out now. Horrible single. In the video, she's ripping off Lil' Kim's style from the mid to late 90s.
Believe it had something to do with the director. Beat is sick.
The clubs stopped playing this months ago. Why is she just recording this?
They listen to Adele R4
R12 not all fat people are smart. Fat is Adele's fan base.
Talentless. Whore. Dumb idiot. Codependent. Victim.
And those are her good traits.
I bet if some of us had know how easy it would be to be at the top of the music industry, we'd have chosen different careers.
The most trashy and least talented sell the most records.
I am trashy and untalented. If only I had moved to Hollywood.
Ariana Grande R4
Rihanna released this video so late because she and the original director of the video did not see eye to eye on the vision for this video. He probably didn't want to be associated or have his name attached to the one Rihanna video that dealt with strippers and twerking. Can we blame him though?
Miley Cyrus will try to upstage this watch!
get me six ping pong balls and a donkey... NOW!
A disgusting video yet beautiful at the same time. It gave me an ominous, disturbed feeling but at the same time, the video had a sense of spaciousness that you often don't get from these green screen videos.
In a weird way I keep watching this video and becoming turned on.
Rihanna is good at sleaze.
Unlike hillbilly Miley Rihanna's hot. I like it.
OP, if you're going to link to your shitty blog, at least don't hide it with bit.ly address.
The pole dancer was like a damn athlete. I liked it.
Here she is going off on Chris Brown on the subway.
Are Rihanna and Miley going for who can be the most sluttiest? I don't get it.
Video is ratchet is fuck. Which essentially is the point of the song. The comments on YouTube are filled with Miley's insane stans saying Rihanna is copying Miley. What these baby fuckwits fail to understand is that in America one may refer to it as 'Twerking' but that method of aggressively shaking dat ass, in the Caribbean is just called dancing. In fact much of the styling in the vid was an homage to the dancehall queens in Jamaican/West Indian culture - Rihanna's culture.
For middle Americans, twerking is "new". They don't notice something until a famous white person copies something other groups have been doing for years.
anyway, Rihanna is jacking Lil Kim's 90s style with that look and video vibe.
I like Miley, but I'm Rihanna navy!
Lol @ Rihanna jacking lil Kim. I think Kim has west Indian heritage. Therefore she, back in the 90's was possibly also influenced by that culture and style of dressing also. Rihanna already said when the video debuted on her instagram simply 'It's a Caribbean ting'.
Sadly this appeals to mostly black America, to girls growing up in homes of poverty. This is their role model. Not Michelle Obama, Rihanna the twerker and Beyonce the twerker.
I wouldn't call it a song, because it is not.
I read here or somewhere that Rhianna liked to pick up female strippers for one night stands.
She be one big ugly ho!
Why do these slutty female singers think that looking like a stripper is "shocking" and "edgy"? It's not. It's been done by female singers since Vanity 6 did it in the 80's.
Come up with something new.
Five-headed high yellow whore.
R38 - Rihanna doesn't consider herself black or even high yellow. She considers herself white/biracial.
I hope that's not true R39. I never paid much attention to her, but I hate her now if she's pulling that shit.
[quote}Rihanna doesn't consider herself black or even high yellow. She considers herself white/biracial.
LMAO! Where did she imagine that? She's BLACK! Neither of her parents are white.
Stupid self-hating bitch.
She can be as biracial as she chooses, but she still has that five-head.
I would rather see Beyonce doing that ass shaking. She has a better body and a bigger butt. Rihanna shaking her little tiny ass looks pitiful.
Ghetto And Proud
Even though Rihanna was already high yellow she's bleached herself up too, just like Beyonce has. And wears fake green contacts.
Her father is Black & Irish ANCESTRY, aka a long time ago. Here's a pic on the left of her and her father, and she's lighter than him because she bleaches her skin.
R46, Rihanna does not wear contacts. She has always had green eyes, as does her light-skinned, green-eyed father.
r47, she has the same skin color
R48, Rihanna still has a wide-ish nose. The professional photographers and make-up sometimes make it look less wide, but it's still wide nonetheless.
I'm 99% certain that Rihanna uses hydroquinone. White actors/singers use it too. It evens out skin tone and lightens you up. But you have to take breaks from it...which is why Rihanna is sometimes much darker. I just use it on my face to get rid of red marks and hyperpigmentation and it works like a dream.
OP, you do know what "haute" means, don't you?
Just in case, it has nothing to do with "hawt."
The usual dead-eyed, meat pileup Interscope Hollywood-as-Cult-of-Death stuff. Sex is supposed to be a little...fun, isn't it? They all serious, like they have guns to their heads. They probably did.
What I find disturbing and sad about that video is the lack of outcry from people, particulary from the black community. When Miley got on stage and did her strip show there was outrage from regular people and celebrities. People were disgusted by the sexualization of her performance. But why is it ok for a black woman to do and no one says nothing? Why is it ok for black woman to be vulgar but not a white woman? Sinead O"Connor, Cher, Elton John and Pink spoke of concern for Miley. No one was ever concerned for Rihanna when she was 18 gyrating on stage. This Rihanna video is very disturbing but the sexualization and exploitation of black women is accpetable.
I can't think of much that I care about less than this, OP.
R55 Because Rihanna is actually hot and attractive? Then you have Miley who looks like a deranged furby.
Rihanna is minutes away from being fat and a furby herself r57
And agree, how come it's totally acceptable in the black community? WTF is wrong with them. Nikki Minaj, Rihanna, Lil Kim, even Tony Braxton was twerking on stage. WTF is wrong with these ladies?
Why doesn't the BC say fucking ANYTHING about it? It's okay for sisters to act like whores, is that the message?
She looks a lot like Joceline from Love and Hip Hip in that video. It's the wig.
But Rihanna's Caribbean with green eyes, she's not Black.
Obviously Rihanna's ancestry is mixed if you go back enough but she is black. Lots of Islands' people are mixed, just like in the US.
Anyway, Rihanna's face is gorgeous but she has a flat white girl body.
