Rihanna - "Russian Roulette" Video

Russian Roulette [Video Premiere]
Director: Anthony Mandler

A beautiful video for a song that I still don't love. However, it is climbing up the charts steadily.
The under water scene with the bullets was amazing as well as the images of the three Rihannas simulating the gun chamber turning. Some of the imagery is a bit disturbing but she's going for dark this time around. She's succeeding. I don't quite get all of the violent references given what she has been through. I guess that's how she coping by turning it into art. Nevertheless, it was a great video.

In other news, Miss Fenty will release a three CD set to correspond with Rated R. The box set contains her first three albums, Music of the Sun, A Girl Like Me, and Good Girl Gone Bad, with space for a fourth disc, Rated R, which will be released on November 23.
Mariah Carey did the same with her last album by releasing Charmbracelet, Emancipation, and E=MC2 together with a space for Memoirs...
Make that money, Miss Fenty. She's not playing around this time.
