Came here to talk to y'all about Rihanna's latest (allegedly) jaw-dropping visual for her song "Pour It Up," the basic (literal) rewrite to Juicy J's "Bandz" and the song that brought out all the circumstantial lesbians out there who would rather go see butts jiggle than to get their eyes poked out by some man's "johnson."
While part of me hates this video for it's sexploitation and vulgarity, another part accepts it. Coming from a girl who was brought up on the 504 boyz, Cash Money, Ludacris and the Ying Yang Twins, the concepts of twerking and stripping on camera don't necessarily excite me as a video that's profound in terms of plot and/or creativity. Sure, Rihanna recruited some of the best dancers in the business for this video and even gave us a sample of her skills; but overall, like the song, the video is basic, boring, and down right cliche'.
To the other bloggers out there looking for some crazy adjective (aside from 'awesome' and 'epic') please stop now. There is nothing special to report about this music video (#WTFU). It's just Rih Rih, popping her booty (in or out of water), wearing something skimpy/provocative, and rubbing her crotch - her last 3-4 videos in a nutshell. And to the Rihanna fans (#WTFU), this should be a sign to send some fan mail to your girl and let her know that her ideas are wack, her songs are wack, and her videos are wack! She's too damn pretty, and has too much talent to continue to give us the same mediocre, overused, hypersexualized crap.
Now, don't get me wrong...I like turning up just like the next person. I consider it a perfect means of escapism from the real world. And I, too, enjoy the strip club (I went to Stadium for my 21st b-day). But don't think, for one second, that I'm not going to sit around and let an artist, who I had a crush on at one point, sit there and deliver the same hyped up sex-fantasy she was giving me in 2011 and expect me to pay good money for it. <
Maybe it's time for Rih Rih to take a year-long break, develop her creativity, and give me something new. Cause I'm so tired of it boo! I really am. Check out the video below and share your thoughts.
