New Video: Rihanna's "Rockstar 101"

Rihanna
Rockstar 101 featuring Slash [Video Premiere]
Director: Melina Matsoukas



While I have lauded Rihanna for sticking to the dark theme and making this project one of the most visually cohesive efforts I have ever seen, I think this video is a bit along the lines of beating a dead horse. Dark for the sake of being dark is the new norm. I think her impersonation of Slash was adorable, but otherwise I can do without the occult symbolism. That horned look was a bit much for me. Kinda makes it hard to dispel those rumors...
The video also features a cameo appearance from Blink 182 member, Travis Barker.
