In the clip, RiRi — wearing a sexy purple and crimson kimono and sporting some super long talons — sprouts multiple arms and sways.
If you’re wondering why Chris Martin & Co. don’t make an appearance in the teaser, Entertainment Weekly says that’s because the video was made to play behind Coldplay during their international tour. Rihanna obviously has other things to do. (Like maybe star in a movie with Seth Rogen and James Franco.)
In March, Rihanna posted a behind-the-scenes photo from the video shoot to Twitter. “Gangsta goth geisha #thuglife #princessofchina,” she tweeted, with a photo of herself dressed up and flipping off the camera.
