Could Rihanna be any more of a badass? In her new music video for ‘Needed Me,’ Rihanna smokes a blunt and carries around a gun — while also baring her nipples!
Don’t mess with Rihanna! The 28-year-old singer looks sassier than ever in her “Needed Me” music video, but she also proves that she’s a force to be reckoned with. RiRi clearly had some unfinished business in the video, because she does something quite shocking that we never would’ve expected from a Rihanna vid…and no, we’re not talking about smoking a blunt or flaunting her nips!
Rocking a sheer robe and a lacy white thong in the opening scene, Rihanna looks absolutely stunning in the vid. But as if the see-through getup wasn’t scandalous enough, RiRi took things to the next level by not wearing anything on top! Just like she did in her racy “Work” video with Drake and her sensual vid for “Kiss It Better,” Rihanna totally flaunted her nipples as she strutted her stuff in the “Needed Me” video. She sure loves showing those things off!
Rihanna’s nipples aren’t nearly the most scandalous part of the vid, though, as the rest of the video shows her on a mission to take a man down. The video follows Rihanna’s quest to a strip club, where her victim is partying, which sets a pretty graphic scene for what’s about to happen. Turns out RiRi wasn’t just carrying around the gun to look cool — she actually used it! Yep, Rihanna totally shot the guy three times. Can you say shocking?!
