“I may be bad/But I’m perfectly good at it,” Rihanna belts in her absolutely raunchy new single “S&M.” “Sticks and stones may break my bones/But chains and whips excite me.” With lyrics like those, we expected an equally risque video. And yes, she’s delivered. This morning the pop star debuted the visual, featuring just about every tool necessary to fulfill a slave and master fantasy. The aforementioned whips and chains are in play, as are mouth gags, saran wrap, and blowup dolls.
There’s also some tongue-in-cheek love and/or hate for the media, who Rihanna includes in bondage scenes and gags while outrageous headlines (“Princess of the Illuminati”) fly by. It seems to be more pleasure than penalty to me. But yeah, the point’s understood. Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton joins her, playing the role of a strawberry milk man turned faithful naughty dog. Watch Rihanna party in her tightly tailored latex fits below.
What do you think of “S&M”? One of her best videos yet? Let us know in the comments.
