Rihanna released a new explicit video on Wednesday night for her single B**** Better Have My Money. The seven-minute video was rated for mature audiences for its language, nudity and violence. Rihanna, 27, co-directed the racy video with the French collective MegaForce.
To give you the back history: Back in 2008, there was a rumor circulating the Internet that claimed despite the success of Rihanna’s “Umbrella” single and her Good Girl Gone Bad album, she was going broke with roughly $20,000 to her name. Allegedly her manager used up a lot of her money to fund her own videos because he wanted to break her into the world-wide market and Def Jam wasn’t seeing the vision initially. Her former business manager Patricia Williams at the time said in a statement to Page Six:
I don’t want to disrespect Marc’s name. He is a fantastic manager and genuinely believes in Rihanna. But he uses her money to fund her future projects because he believes he can break her in the world-market. Her album sales are not nearly as close to her single sales and he knows that if she is only known as a ‘singles artist’ she will only be as good as her last hit. Unfortunately, he didn’t inform his client and I’m receiving the brunt of it.

Most people go out for a night of clubbing to get their groove on, but Rihanna apparently also goes to adopt dogs! The “Bitch Better Have My Money” songstress was out at 1Oak in Los Angeles on Saturday, June 27, but came home with a cute little pooch instead of a hangover.
“Well, I found him in the bathroom somewhere, and he ran up to me,” Rihanna said in a Snapchat video recorded by a friend. The singer, 29, apparently couldn’t resist the tiny dog’s adorable face and brought him home with her. “She literally just went to the club, came back with the cage, wee-wee pads, food, and a f—–g dog!” her friend exclaimed in another video as she panned the camera around the home to show all the supplies Rihanna had purchased for her new pet.

You’d better have Rihanna‘s money come Thursday. Or else she’ll get you, my pretty – and your little dog, too. The pop star dropped a nearly two-minute teaser for her “B—h Better Have My Money” video late last night, and if this clip is any indication, it may already be too late for the woman who owes RiRi the cash.
In the lavish trailer, a beautiful, wealthy (-looking) woman steps into an elevator cradling her little dog. Rihanna’s already in there, with a giant trunk taking up most of the small space. Two seconds after the doors close, they reopen – but the woman is nowhere to be seen, and the dog is snug in RiRi’s arms.
She’s just been made the new face of high-fashion brand Dior. But Rihanna has been looking less than her glamourous self in recent days and once again opted for a very casual ensemble when she headed to an appointment in New York City on Wednesday. The red haired beauty, 27, looked deep in thought as she left an office building flashing her copper red tresses under a beige baseball cap.
