Video: Rihanna, “Rockstar 101”


If you play this video backwards starting from the part where Rihanna's in that pentagram wearing the demonic goat headpiece, you will hear her reading from the script for Lost's actual finale, plus she'll explain why Slash is the universal symbol for rock stardom in this video, and other mysteries of the universe. We're on the fence about whether Rihanna buys into her bad girl/rocker chick narrative, but the wood nymph-versus-Persephone styling in this video is pretty hot, and a smart way to spruce up an okay song that will never replace "Rude Boy" in Ri Ri's summer anthem pantheon. (Because we are still listening to "Rude Boy" like 500 TIMES IN A ROW, EVERY DAY.)
