Much waited video premiere of the pop diva, has finally come. Edgy, gothic images that are soon to be fallowed by her next video “Russian Roulette”. It is the promotional video for the album “Rated R”, which is going to be released on 23th of November. Rihanna has declared she has put everything in this album that she wanted to say in the last eight months. She’s finally spoken out.
The new clip, released yesterday, 3th of November, presents Rihanna in a black-and-white world, where she seems to be the last one left on earth. There’s no specific action in it, just Rihanna appearing in different locations repeating the refrain “the wait is ova”. It is a darker side of the celebrity we’ve known before, but she surely shows her edgy style.
Rihanna first appears wearing an eye patch, a high- naked jacket and garters, than change to another location with a black hoodie and sunglasses matched with some black pants and a black leather bustier, finishing with a black bustier, tight black jeans and a striped fur coat. Shot by director Anthony Mandler, the images are absolutely desolating, but probably showing more about the state of mind that Rihanna is struggling with, since Christ Brown assaulted her.
Rihanna is back in the spotlight, giving interviews, appearing on magazine covers, performing at music awards, doing a great job in her comeback. It is surely a different Rihanna, but she’s still a pop diva, an edgy presence that shows us her strong attitude. Let’s wait to see what else she’s got on her new album.
