Troubled singer Rihanna was spotted waiting for her ride outside her Los Angeles hotel today. Rihanna wore a black long sleeve tee with a print screen of legendary reggae star Bob Marley on the front. The 23-year-old Barbadian had just attended a business meeting at the hotel to discuss the marketing push for her next music video, "Man Down" which was filmed in Jamaica last month.
My sources tell me that business meetings with the singer rarely go well because her attention span is amazingly short.
"Man Down" is a reggae-influenced track in which the Barbadian singer shoots a man after an argument.
Video director Anthony Mandler gave MTV the scoop about the music video:
“We shot the video last month in Jamaica and it’s my favorite song she’s ever recorded, so I was really excited to get involved. And it’s just one of those songs that demands a strong narrative and visual, and let’s just say she let me go all the way.”
Mandler proceeds to unleash just about every available adjective to describe his enthusiasm for the project: “I think you can expect something that’s dramatic and shocking and intense and emotional and uplifting and enlightening.”
Based on Mandler’s description, it sounds like we can expect to see RiRi getting a little gangsta as she acts out the lyrics. This should be good!
‘Man Down’ appears on Rihanna’s album ‘Loud,’ which in only six months of release has produced the hits ‘Only Girl (In the World),’ ‘What’s My Name’ and ‘S&M.’ Source
