We've said it before and we'll say it again: Rihanna has no chill.
But that's what makes RiRi so darn loveable—girl is crazy and she doesn't care who knows it. Exhibit A for today is the new video for "Bitch Better Have My Money," which dropped last night to totally mixed reactions. If you're brave enough to watch, you'll see why: There's kidnappings, there's torture and there's a whole lot of blood. It's most definitely NSFW and kind of definitely not for everybody.
Rihanna herself directed the seven-minute-long mini-movie, and it's easily her raciest music video yet. You really have to watch for yourself to get the full effect, but the gist of the plot is that she kidnaps her accountant's wife as payback for him screwing her over financially—and let's just say she doesn't exactly go easy on Mrs. Accountant. A few websites and bloggers are crying foul on the vid this morning, claiming that Rih and her gang took it way too far this time.
And while we're definitely in agreement that scenes depicting a topless woman tied up by her ankles (among other things) are not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach, we're not sure that we're ready to judge this video quite yet. After all, it's no secret that Rihanna is an entertainer who seeks out shock value in all forms.
What we do know, though, is that The Navy is backing her up full-force. They are into this video, you guy, gore or not. A lot of her most loyal fans are impressed by the fact that she played director and musician on BBHMM, but mostly they're just blown away by another outrageous Rihanna showing. But we'll let The Navy speak for themselves.
even with all that blood on her face she still looks flawless in the end #BBHMMVideo— telly tell (@tweetingtelly69) July 2, 2015

They should give Rih the Vanguard award at the VMAs. Is there any doubt Rih is Queen of videos? Her videography made an IMPACT #BBHMMVideo— mery (@robynslostfile) July 2, 2015
Rihanna wore head to toe Tom Ford denim in the gas station scene. This is why I love her. #BBHMMVideo— Nico Bellay (@IAMFASHlON) July 2, 2015
