Rihanna‘s video for “B*tch Better Have My Money” has proven to be a bit too much for some folks to handle, and there’s been mass pearl-clutching about it all over the Internet. She has always loved a video that gets people talking though!
With kidnap, nudity, abuse, torture, and implied murder, “BBHMM” was high on the NSFW factor. This isn’t new territory for Rihanna, though, because she’s been cranking out controversial visuals for years. If anything, she’s been ramping up to this for quite some time.

The song was ominous enough to begin with, but Rihanna just amped it up with the video where she played a deadly game. Not only did she bury the loser in the desert, there were some eerie visuals during her interrogation, too.
