Rihanna will be dropping her eighth studio album sometime this year, and in the meantime the singer has folks talking plenty about her new video for “BBHMM.”
The video is bloody and pretty controversial.
Don’t mess with Rihanna. The record-setting superstar exacts revenge in the dark and deadly video for “B*tch Better Have My Money.” In the cinematic clip, which she co-directed with Megaforce, the bad gal goes gangsta and kidnaps a rich white lady in an elevator before carrying out her sinister plan. With the woman topless in the back seat, RiRi drives through the desert with her two female henchmen.
They charter a ship and get high and drunk in a motel room with their kidnapee by their side, but in the end, it turns out that the “b*tch” is Rihanna’s accountant (the kidnapee’s husband), who’s been spending her money on strippers and alcohol. She ties him up and brandishes a knife before unleashing a bloodbath. Rihanna wakes up the next day in the suitcase, totally n*ked and covered in blood and money after the cruel and unusual punishment.
