Strippers, Cash and Guns in Rihanna’s New Harmony Korine-Directed Video for ‘Needed Me’

+

Rihanna solidifies her position as the pop star with absolutely zero fucks to give with today’s release of the Harmony Korine-directed “Needed Me.” And though Korine doesn’t show much imagination here (it’s essentially a 3-minute version of Spring Breakers) the video is noteworthy in that it is further proof that RiRi is genuinely badass.

Guys, what we have here is a pop star, an actual pop star, who just released a music video laden with naked ladies of various shapes and sizes (not to mention Rihanna’s own nipples) in which she (spoiler alert) brutally murders some sort of gang leader while money flies about. Lock up your children, because she is the worst role model of all time and I absolutely love it. How bonkers is this?! How lucky are we?!

What a time to be alive.
