Rihanna wears barbed wire for new single

Island Def Jam

The Umbrella singer showcased nothing but barbed wire (yes, the same kind you'd find around a fence!) on the cover of her new single, Russian Roulette.

The single, which was played on radios for the first time yesterday, is taken from her fourth album, Rated R.

The raunchy look fits in perfectly with the theme of her album title.

But, despite this rather strange (and painful-looking) outfit choice, complete with the see-through pirate's eye-patch, she still manages to look striking,

She goes for the shock factor, and it's obviously working as everyone's talking about her bold and daring new look.

The eye-patch returned in the Russian Roulette video, along with thigh-high boots, fishnet stockings and suspenders.

We can't wait to see what other outfits the daring 21-year-old superstar will wow us with.

Rihanna's new album Rated R is out on November 23rd.
