Rihanna Goes Hillbilly Chic for the ‘What Now’ Video

Rihanna‘s been a little quiet lately, don’t you think? Well, that’ll be because she was busy grinding on her grandpa (gag – check her Instagram!) in Barbados for his birthday and also, erm, working on the video for her latest single, ‘What Now’. The full video won’t be out until tomorrow, but here’s a behind-the-scenes look to tide you over, since I know you can’t wait:

I’m not sure about the hillbilly chic look she’s trying to rock. In fact, I absolutely hate it, but I guess you can’t say she’s not adventurous. I do love the song, and Rihanna has promised that the vid will be “eerie” and “demented”, which… LOL, okay. What do you think?

Rihanna’s Naked Again – This Time With Snakes!

You have to hand it to Rihanna for her consistency, if nothing else. Homegirl just loves being naked. She also loves to get people talking, and she’s hoping to do it again with her new shoot for GQ, in which she appears naked… with real live snakes! Mon dieu!

The last thing I want is a snake around my neck, dead or alive, that’s for sure, but Rihanna probably thinks it makes her edgier, so let’s just all try and support this bullshit. I do think it’s a nice idea for a photo shoot, I suppose – it’s very different, a little Medusa-esque, the weird contacts are cool… Good stuff, right?

I think the most surprising photo shoot we’ll ever see from Rihanna is one in which the girl has clothes on, though. I mean, damn.

Rihanna Got Asked to Leave That Mosque After Her Photo Shoot…

Apparently I wasn’t the only one to raise an eyebrow at Rihanna‘s Abu Dhabi mosque photo shoot! While RiRi herself saw no problem posing for umpteen pictures wearing the hijab that’s mandatory for female visitors, others did and she was apparently asked to leave right after. Turns out she wasn’t even in a public area of the mosque – she was in a place that’s prohibited to visitors. Disrespect all around!

From Time:

Authorities asked Rihanna to leave the site of a mosque in Abu Dhabi after she posted photographs of herself posing in areas of the mosque that are off-limit to visitors on Saturday. The Shaikh Zayed Grand Mosque Center issued a statement on Sunday saying that while it’s open to visitors of all faiths and allows pictures, the superstar’s photos were inappropriate, violated the “sanctity” of the mosque and disrespected the religious nature of the location, reports Gulf News.

The photos, which depicted the singer posing in front of the mosque in an all-black hooded outfit, were posted to her Instagram account. Rihanna commented on the picture of her looking at a group of women wearing head scarves and full body garments, “Bitch stole my look.” Another picture shows her lounging in the sun with the comment “#NoTanLines.”

Oh dear. Of course, Rihanna will never learn and won’t have cared, anyway. She’s already over in Greece doing photo shoots. Nothing offensive here besides her narcissism.
