Rihanna's BBHMM video

Violent, debauched, funny, feminist, anti-feminist, angry, playful, enigmatic, provocative, gratuitous, uncompromising - Rihanna's video for Bitch Better Have My Money is a lot of things, many of them contradictory.

The 7-minute clip sees the star kidnapping and torturing her accountant's wife after he leaves her bankrupt (apparently this is a true story, aside from the kidnap and torture bit).

If Rihanna is this generation's Madonna, then she's deeply into her Erotica / Sex phase - her boobs are everywhere, but the music isn't what it used to be. Her videos are an echo chamber of her media portrayal, while sticking two fingers up at music's moral guardians.

Bitch Better Have My Money is the apotheosis - gleefully depraved, brilliantly produced, but ultimately lacking in soul.
