Rihanna finally debuted the music video for her hit song “Diamonds,” and we happen to love it— so what are her fans saying about it?
In a montage of many different clips, Rihanna surrounds herself with bright gems, blazing fire, horses and smoke in a beautiful, haunting video. Oh and did we mention it ends with a heavily tattooed man—who looks exactly like one Chris Brown—lit on fire?
Overall, fans seem to be responding positively to the video, with one fan posting “this video is POWERFUL! She is singing with all her emotions! simply beautiful!” Another fan tweeted “gorgeous...!! i love the new look_ and her new song.”
But there are some who aren’t really feeling the vibe of the new vid. “I love this song but I’m Not impressed with this video- a little disappointed” one fan tweeted. “Perhaps I'm a little but slow, but i just cant see how the video connects with the song.”
In a recent promo for the video, Rihanna admits that she simply wants to relay a certain feeling to the audience.
"With every song it's a different story, so the visuals are very specific to that story and that world," Rihanna explains. "With 'Diamonds,' it was just a series of vignettes that we put together to help get the emotion across throughout the song."
Though we’re not 100% sure how to define the mysterious video or which emotions Rihanna is referring to, it’s safe to say the star shines “bright like a diamond,” as usual.
