Rihanna Shows Vulnerable Side in ‘Diamonds’ Video
Rihanna's is the only face we see in her incredibly vulnerable 'Diamonds' video. But we do witness another body, in the form of a heavily tattooed, man's arm that she's desperately trying to cling to. We don't see him, but the suggestion that it's Chris Brown is obvious.
Ri is naked in the black and white scenes. The video turns to color when she tries her darnedest to hold onto her man, even though he's slipping through her fingertips. Those dagger nails get in the way of everything.
She runs. She floats in the open water -- love the aerial view at the end -- and she watches an unbroken stallion gallop and run free, refusing to be tamed. Again, a metaphor for her love for Breezy?
We liked this softer version of RiRi.
