Twerking, grinding, gyrating and stripping up a storm, Rihanna's new music video for "Pour It Up" makes Miley Cyrus' VMA performance look like amateur hour.
The racy behind-the-scenes pole dancing classes and stripper audition videos she shared with us in recent days did not do justice to the final product.
At all. Watch the borderline NSFW "Pour It Up" video below:
The video, co-directed by Rihanna herself, shows her in a blonde wig and a diamond-studded bra whilst Twerking and tossing around wads of cash from her throne.
We don't mean modest booty-shaking a la Britney Spears "Work Bitch" music video. We're talking about hardcore, aggressive Twerking up in here.
The gauntlet has been thrown down, and it's fitting that Queen Rih sits atop a gold throne, having reduced Miley Cyrus' Twerking efforts to pure peasantry.
It will never be accused of being high art, but the "Pour It Up" music video certainly lives up to the lavish strip-club exploits referenced in the song.
Rihanna has never been shy about her love for such establishments.
That passion shines through as the star plays both stripper and bankroller in her fascinating spin on the typical economics of the customer-stripper relationship.
Money is thrown around like there's no tomorrow, but there's plenty more where that came from. It's like art imitating life for this Unapologetic singer.
