Rihanna took a bath on camera, called it a music video
Not many of us get to perform at the Grammys, release hit records or model for major magazines, so not many of us can imagine the scheduling demands put on a superstar like Rihanna. When you need to hire someone to hold your purse, surely it's a challenge finding time for the simple things in life -- especially when whatever minutes you might have to yourself are frittered on discovering new angles from which one can Instagram one's boobs.
Priorities. Always, priorities.
The thing is, RiRi's still got a new single to promote: Stay. You want a music video? She'll turn up for the shoot, but it might bump up against something else in her super-packed schedule. Hey, Sophie Mueller: How about you bring the crew 'round to Rihanna's place around bath time. You'll work something out.
Let's pretend that's what happened to make Rihanna's latest music video a reality. While her Mikky Ekko duet plays, Rihanna enjoys tubby time, blankly soaking in some greenish bathwater as she presumably reflects on her feelings, or her vocal performance on the recording. You might sing in the shower; Rihanna lip synchs in the bath -- occasionally mouthing a few key lines as she relaxes, perfectly recreating the experience of a live Rihanna show.
