I was one of the only people here for Rihanna and Chris Brown’s relationship. I thought they were meant to be together, and who’s to say that they won’t be, but ever since their latest breakup, Ri Ri has been different. Her new video “What Now” is a tormented portrayal of how we imagine the insides of her soul to be. “I don’t know how to feel, I don’t know how to cry,” she sings and it’s the most truthful statement we’ve heard from Rihanna since she subliminally begged Chris to “Stay.”
Rihanna herself labeled the video “demented” and we agree. She screams “What Now” while wallowing in melancholy in the Jeff Nicholas-directed visuals that remind us of her Rated “R” demeanor (you know, the album she released after the domestic violence incident in 2009). After watching the dark clip, we’re ourselves wondering what now? What’s next for Ri Ri now that Chris has moved on with his relationship with Karrueche?
It seems like Ri is just begging for attention and now that she’s been hanging with her ex and Chris’s ex-enemy, Drake, we’re convinced of it. In case you need the reminder Ri, you’re awesome and totally deserve a man who won’t do you like Chris did.
