Watch: Rihanna, ‘Rockstar 101’

Back in black

Last week we got to see a teaser clip for Rihanna‘s new music video for Rockstar 101 which featured the chanteuse parading about in a red wig but right now we get to see the music video in full. As you can tell from the following screencaps, last week’s sneak peek failed to do the very cool-lookin’ video justice:


I have to admit, I don’t love the song … but I do love the video. Check it out, after the jump …


Rihanna really knows how to make kickass music videos. I love the black make-up, it’s a very striking look for her. I also love the “Slash” cameo in the clip ;) The song gets a C rating from me, the video … a deffo A! What do ya’ll think, do you like this video for Rockstar 101?

    im not big on the song…and i have to say a hate the song video….maybe not hate…but dont like it.
    i dont get the point of putting the red wig on her if the video was going to be b&w…seems….pointless?
    i had a little giggle with the slash look…kinda like.. “well he wouldnt be in the video…so we’ll find another way to put him in”
    i dunno overall i dont think she should have picked this song to release as a single.
    and im still tryin to figure out wtf wearing horns has to do with being a rockstar.

    I like the song. It reminds me of the sound of “Shut Up and Drive”…I like dirty guitars in pop! I also like the visuals in the video…she isn’t scared to be something other than “pretty”. “Interesting” is always more entertaining for me!

    The song effing sucks! I do not like it at all. The video is good, if not a tad bit disturbing…there’s a lot of rumors going around that Rihanna worships the devil. I think it’s funny, but weiiiird. There’s a lot of this Illuminati stuff going around as well. Not that I necessarily believe it, but it’s definitely interesting to think about. Anyways, I’m tired of Rihanna doing that stupid snarl/lip curl thing she does with her upper lip. It’s annoying and overused.

    Hmmm…I think the only problem I have with it is that she’s not a rock star lol But anyway, it’s an interesting song and video, but I’m not sure if I like it yet.

    @CHASE – that whole Illuminati thing seems to surround anyone whos associated closely with Jay -Z. i know alot of talk was around Jays song ‘on to the next one’. the only one it hasnt touched yet is Kanye.

    Christina Aguilera would be called out if she did this same video for being to shocking like Gaga..Only Gaga can have White Wash background,Crazy Makeup,Headgear and Latex outfits.

  7. that song is so boringly bad, who the fuck let that shit make it onto her album? – So far the only single I’ve liked from the new album has been Rude Boy. That video is pretty lame too. She could get a few neat pictures out of it, but it doesn’t really keep me interested for long. That Slash part was really pretty cheesy too. Someone above mentioned that it was a gaga rip-off, but at least lady gaga is fun?

    @CHASE… I Know what you are talking about and after watching the part where she’s wearing the horns and is on four doing some ritual or something inside a circle I think YEs she worships the devil, although MAYBE she doesn’t even know what she’s doing… I recomend everyone to watch “The Arrivals” on youtube, with and open mind.

    an* open mind …

    The Illuminati stuff is soooooo funny!! I have seen similar things said about Gaga. Those people are so nuts it is entertaining.

    This video was raunchy, sexy and dirty and I freakin’ loved it!! She takes it to the extreme and gives us something we haven’t seen before. Song rocks too!!

    SOOOO LADY GAGA SOOO BORINGGG OH MYYY !!! THE POP DIVAS ARE GETTING SOO BOREEEDDD. EVERY ONE WANT TO BE LIKE LADY GAGA

    Ugh fucking Gaga comparisons i knew it would come… did anyone miss Good Girl Gone Bad theme and TOUR? Ahhh Rihanna has been rocking this sorta image for like 3+ years now. Before Gaga even came on the scene. Rihanna rocked the weird and the bold. She wore crazy outfits on red carpets and in her videos. She had different hair styles that everyone copied. She is a style icon – no Gaga copier at all. I would say Gaga copied Rihanna if anything.
    Then again, they all copied Kylie in terms of SOUND, IMAGE, FASHION and TOUR. Kylie invented all of that.

    Well, I really do not like either the song or the video. I think both are quite boring. Then again, there really isn’t a pop star out today that impresses me.

  16. DAMN! WHO IS THE SEXY HOT DRUMMER IN SLASH?
    OH MY…HIS BARE CHEST! I LOVE WHITE GUYS!
    YEAH…I’M A BLACK FEMALE. DAMN I’M ONLY LLOKING AT THIS VIDEO BECAUSE OF SLASH. I’M TIRED OF RIHANNA,SHE NEEDS TO CHANGE UP HER MUSIC. IS IT ME…ALL OF HER MUSIC SOUNDS THE SAME.

  17. OOOPS MISSPELLED THE WORD LOOKING,CAN’T TAKE MY EYES OFF THE DRUMMER.

    ummm, the video and the song sucks.

  19. erica

    I love Rihanna! Her style, music and edge is awesome! I love how she stands out and takes charge! I love all her music and this video rocks just like her!

  20. buttface

    both the song and video get an F-

  21. Kati

    I’m so over rihanna

  22. Megan

    I used to really like Rihanna but its slowly fading. I like the chorus of the song but everything else sucks. And omg how many times can you say oh baby. The music video is visually interesting but not all that great. Can she do a video where shes not almost completely naked it at least one scene?
