Rihanna in her video for Pour it Up
She is no stranger to controversy – especially when it comes to the content of her music videos – and it doesn’t look like Rihanna’s going to be changing her ways anytime soon if her latest visual spectacle is anything to go by.
Rivalling Miley Cyrus’s Wrecking Ball antics, Rihanna showed she is the number one twerking queen as she busted out her best moves in the video for new single Pour It Up.
The explicit video prompted Vevo to set it to private within minutes of it going live last night. In response to her disgruntled fans expressing their annoyance that the video had been banned so quickly, the singer Tweeted: ‘IN TEN PHUCKING MINUTES BRO?’
Vevo then asked Rihanna for a less explicit version of the video, to which she humbly replied: “I’ll have it right to you.”
In the (slightly) less explicit version, Rihanna is dressed in a skimpy diamante bra - much like the one she donned in Barbados this summer – and can be seen writhing around on a gold throne in a blonde wig and sunglasses. The singer also demonstrates her pole–dancing capabilities, and proves she is a dab hand at throwing money in the air. In short, classic RiRi.
Pour It Up appears as a track on Rihanna’s seventh album Unapologetic.
