Rihanna gets handsy in Coldplay-free 'Princess of China' video: Watch it here
The clip is decidedly simple in its weirdness: RiRi, equipped with unwieldy gold talons, chills in front of a green screen and lets her many, many arms do the talking.
Coldplay fans will also notice that Chris Martin and company are absent not just from the video but also from the song. Though it’s taken from the band’s Mylo Xyloto album, the edited track does away with Martin’s vocals and lets Rihanna soak up the spotlight. That’s because the clip was tailored to play behind Coldplay during their massive international tour, and, you know, Rihanna’s got things to do.
Check out the mildly trippy, Asian-influenced video below and let us know how you feel about all those arms:
