Rihanna’s Video For “Bitch Better Have My Money” Is Bloody, Beautiful & Brilliant

Witness an artist at her peak. Here is Rihanna’s video for “BBHMM.”

It is a perfect snarl of a video, a seven-minute sneer and a curled lip. Directed by Miss Fenty herself, it’s  aggressive in both execution and message. It’s going to make a lot of people angry, but more will raise their voices in praise. This is Rihanna’s piéce de resistance. It is a thing of great beauty. What’s that sound you’re hearing, like a chorus of whispers rising to an angry yell? That’s hundreds of angry thinkpieces assuming their corporeal form.


If you were unsure as to how Rihanna felt about her finances – she accused her accountant of advising her on a string of bad financial decisions that left her practically bankrupt in 2009 – now you have it. Watch as Rihanna kidnaps Mads Mikkelsen’s bougie wife, throws her into a Louis Vuitton trunk in the back of her car and zooms off on a madcap adventure featuring some “Weekend At Bernie’s” shit with a very satisfying ending.

How are you spending your holiday weekend? Will it maybe look something like this?

I certainly hope so.

If you have to ask, she gets what she’s owed (IRL, Rihanna settled her suit to the tune of $10 million), and in the meantime, teaches us all a very valuable lesson: Don’t fuck with her money. Don’t fuck with her credit.

She will put you in a goddamn trunk and get the last laugh.
