Great news: Ariana Grande isn’t the only pop star who regularly sees demons. (Also: WHY AREN’T WE STILL TALKING ABOUT THIS?)
Illuminati High Priestess, #Unapologetic Navy Commander and G4L Robyn “Rihanna” Fenty is also plagued by the supernatural.
After debuting the twerk-tastic clip for her murky stripper anthem “Pour It Up,” Bad Gal RiRi’s back (finally!) with another visual from her underappreciated seventh studio album, Unapologetic: “What Now.”
The dark ‘n stormy video takes RiRi right back into her “Russian Roulette” mode (with a touch of “Disturbia” flair), as she aggressively, feverishly works out the demons conjuring up some serious black magic (Teyana Taylor and Ciara) inside her mind. While nothing really happens in the video — it’s like RiRi’s version of the VHS tape from The Ring — it’s captivating still, given that the Queen of Selfies is a master of posing and working those angles for the camera in ways that keep the basic bitches stressed, pressed and very obsessed.
On a similarly dark-sided note, RiRi’s latest Eminem collabo “The Monster” just notched the Barbadian beauty her 25th Top 10 hit (!!!). Combine those bangin’ “What Now” remixes with this clip, and Rih might just see her 26th hit very soon.
That Rihanna reign? Oh, you already know.
“What Now” was released on September 17. (iTunes)
