Miley Cyrus? You've got nothing. Britney Spears? You better "Work Bitch" if you want to compete. Rihanna's "Pour It Up" music video has set the bar high.

Or low, depending on how you see it. Regardless, man is there some Twerking in this strip club romp! Girl shakes that thing aggressively. With a purpose.

Rihanna Twerking HARD

If you saw any Rihanna "Pour It Up" music video behind-the-scenes teases in recent weeks, and there were plenty, you had to know what was coming.

Still, wow. Just wow.

Pole dancing, neon thongs, cash throwing, a standing ovation of ass clapping and feverish sex with the air? It's a lot to take in. And raises the bar for Twerking.

There's rhythmic gyrating on water, on poles, on chairs, on invisible men who couldn't even handle it. Check out some of the highlights on GIF loop below ...

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.

Rihanna was the target of an attempted burglary in Pacific Palisades last weekend, while she was out of town, as the star's bad luck with homes continues.

As she was doing her thing (getting booed for being late to shows, parading around Australia half-naked), someone drove up to her $12 million home.

Cat burglars, they weren't. Someone actually walked right into the back yard and threw a chair through a sliding glass door, police sources report.

The alarm apparently scared the thieves off at that point, because they left without entering. Did they really not expect she'd have an alarm system?

To wit, Rihanna's property is covered by security cameras, and you have to drive on private road to even get there. On said road, there is a sign:

Rihanna appears on the cover of Glamour this month. At least we think that's her. It's kind of hard to tell with this first ballot Photoshop Hall of Fame entry.

Rihanna Glamour Magazine Cover

While we often use the phrase "style chameleon" and Rihanna certainly fits the mold, most Rihanna photos in question are still unquestionably Rihanna.

This? We have no idea what this is.

It's half early Michael Jackson, half bad '80s movie, half bad editing. Yes. We realize those are three halves. It's just that bizarre of a cover, people!

Still, we're talking about a woman who can sell anything. Even this. The girl could wear a paper bag and still look fierce. It's all about the 'tude with her.

Teyana Taylor and Rihanna are engaged in a Twitter feud, with the fashion model and R&B singer calling out the pop star for ridiculing her on Instagram.

Yes, this is an actual, heated celebrity beef. Allow us to explain:

It all started when Rihanna posted a video of her male hairstylist performing a parody of Taylor's "Caught Up in the Rapture" cover wearing a curly wig.

Taylor shared a video of her performing the same track and blasting the "We Found Love" star on Twitter. She was NOT happy, for real. Taylor tweeted:

"Don’t play wit me @rihanna [expletive] all this industry [expletive], YOU & I know each other VERY well. Throwing subs 4 wat? u got my #, don’t show off."

Rihanna didn't respond. But that didn't deter Teyana Taylor:

Stopping by the island paradise of Phuket, Thailand, on her Diamonds world tour last Friday, Rihanna took a selfie with an endangered slow loris.

"Look who was talkin dity to me!" Rihanna captioned the pic.

Soon after, two men got arrested over this. Why, you ask?

Rihanna, Loris

Little did Rih know she was aiding local authorities in enforcing a law banning Thai citizens from charging tourists money to take photos with the primate.

According to the Phuket News, officials from the Ministry of Natural Resources began investigating the photo at the urging of animal welfare groups.

Rihanna with no makeup is just as beautiful as Rihanna with makeup, if not more so. The singer proved this and then some with an all-natural selfie:

Given that we most recently saw her promoting her MAC cosmetics line or attending haute Fashion Week parties, it's easy to forget how naturally beautiful she is.

Without makeup and professional styling, and referencing her own David Guetta-produced summer smash, Rihanna captioned the photo shown above:

"What now?"

Really, what else is there to say about an image of this caliber? Some things, like Rihanna with no makeup or Miley Cyrus Twerking, defy description.

Rihanna and One Direction's response - or lack thereof - to Miley Cyrus' VMA performances may have been highlight of the entire pop music Super Bowl.

If you missed it, the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards will best be remembered for Miley Cyrus Twerking, wearing latex underwear and grinding on Robin Thicke.

Not necessarily remembered in a good way, though. While the 20-year-old wild child was performing, the camera panned to the crowd. And found this:

Rihanna, One Direction Watch Miley Cyrus

Rihanna and the five young men of One Direction, who were sitting near each other inside the Barclays Center, were not impressed to say the least.

RiRi's blank expression said it all, while Harry Styles' furrowed brow was equally classic. We'd wager that they spoke for most of the viewing public.

After all, it's not everyday you see a former Disney star Twerking in pigtails and a onesie, slapping butts and molesting a 36-year-old married father.

Rihanna and 1D are holding up okay, but we're just waiting for the class action PTSD lawsuit against Miley from those feeling victimized by this display.

Note to NYC fans: Don't mess with #BadGirlRiRi.

During an outing in the West Village this week, Rihanna was approached by throngs of supporters, some of whom were a bit overzealous in her eyes.

When they blocked her exit, she was not pleased.

“Back it up,” RiRi snapped. “Back it the f**k up!”

Earlier, when one fan tried to follow the singer into her hotel, Chris Brown's former flame stared her down and pushed her away without a word.

Not that Rihanna fans are turned off by her 'tude.

After watching her diss that particular girl, the rest of the crowd burst out into laughter and applause, with one eyewitness even yelling, “She’s so cute!”
