Last night Island Def Jam had a media event to preview upcoming releases, including a clip for Kanye West’s “Paranoid” that extensively features Rihanna. Want an early peek? One enterprising blogger recorded it on flipcam, so a poor-quality version is floating around the internet. Not much really happens (she stands in her underwear staring alluringly into the camera, she drives a car around staring angrily into the camera), but it’s probably a smart move for her, a high-profile way to easy back into public view without having to really do much.
What do you think? Is it finally time for Rihanna to return to performing? And is this the best way to do it?
