New Video: Rihanna's "Te Amo"

Te Amo [Video Premiere]

A while back, I posted a list of who I considered today's young music icons and their predecessors. I likened Rihanna to Vanity and Madonna, and with good reason. With this newly released video, Rihanna pushes the envelope and treads ground that is rarely seen with mainstream pop stars. The homo-eroticism of the lyrics is taken to a new level with this beautifully shot racy clip. This makes Katy Perry's nod to lesbianism look like preschool. Miss Fenty has really taken us for a ride with this album. I dig it.
