Rihanna loves the strippers in new music video

The bad girl Rihanna released the visual to her single “Pour It Up,” and it’s arguably her raciest video to date.

Ri-Ri can be seen dancing in a variety of locations filled with suggestive poses that are only fitting for the Mike Will Made It track.

She’s slow winding in a chair, in puddles of water and also on a strip pole. She even hires professional strippers that twerk alongside the “We Found Love” singer.

Rihanna is no stranger to controversy with every move that she makes and this will be sure to have her navy fan base talking.

Kendrick disses Drake. Again. 

It wasn’t too much of surprise but Drake’s third album, Nothing Was The Same, entered the Billboard Charts at Number 1. He sold 658,000 copies, which is his biggest debut sale wise and also the second biggest sales week in 2013.

And Kendrick Lamar just doesn’t care.

The Compton emcee took another opportunity to diss Drake and hip-hop fans may be witnessing the beginning of budding rivalry. In a clip from the upcoming 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards, Kendrick directly locks his sights on the Toronto rapper after Drizzy’s thinly-veiled diss on the track “The Language.” Will Drake respond? Only time will tell, but the clock is ticking.
