It's Rihanna's Stripper-Filled "Pour It Up" Video

Last November, when I was on a plane with Rihanna flying all over the world in a sleep-deprived haze, tracks from her then-new album Unapologetic were piped in wherever we went: the 777 jet,  shuttle buses hauling us to her club shows each night, her concerts themselves...

One of the murkiest of them was "Pour It Up," which still has the ability to give me flashbacks to that trip whenever I hear it. The lyrics are all about Rihanna's alcohol consumption, her pride in the money she's got stacked up and the glitzy life she's bumping, grinding and smoking her way through.

The video takes things a step further and shows strippers (Rihanna included) twirling on a pole, twerking in a pool and looking pretty altogether stunning.



The track itself is vapid as fuck, but the video's a winner in my book.
