Rihanna is the queen of shock factor, and her new video for “Bitch Better Have My Money” is no exception.
The seven-minute long vid features a crimson-haired, homicidal Rihanna as the story’s resident villainess.
In the video, the Barbadian beauty takes turns kidnapping, torturing and killing her female nemeses, disposing of the bodies in glamorous hotel rooms and tropical locales.
It reads like a high-octane crime flick, complete, of course, with plenty of NSFW-level nudity.
The singer announced the video’s release on Twitter last night, and the reactions have been mixed: A scroll through the comments on YouTube reveal plenty of praise but also a decent amount of criticism, particularly against the blatant sexual violence the video seems to glorify.
But art is art, and pleasing everyone has certainly never been on Rihanna’s agenda.
