Rihanna's riding the rude boy angle by turning this into a throwback dancehall video-slash-M.I.A.'s entire steez down to the little hat. We would really love it if she would just go full dancehall queen. Our friend in Kingston just told us the new style is to cut slits in all your clothes, and last weekend saw a dancehall queen who cut a slit exactly "where spandex meets pum pum." How rad would it be if Rihanna went full Rainbow/Mandee, wore only outfits that were like 62% poly-cotton AT MINIMUM, and sliced holes in everything? We would definitely like her better than this faux rebel Alexander Wang shit. That said: still fux with this video cause it looks cool. Sorry M.I.A.... and Santigold.
