Rihanna has spoken to MTV News on the set of her new video for Hard.
Asked about the theme the stylish popster explained it was “military couture.”
And she told our US team: “Everything is surrounded around the idea of something military.
“We have tanks, we have troops, we've got helicopters, we've got explosions. We've got lots of cute outfits, lots of bullets. It's crazy.”
Ri’ also says the war theme is suited to the production of the banger- which features Young Jeezy. She said:
“Funny enough, when I first heard the song, we were in Paris — they (producers Tricky Stewart and The Dream) flew out there to play me some songs they had done for me, some ideas.
“And before they played Hard, they were like, 'We're gonna play you the ghetto one first, and you have to do it, you have to do it.
“They thought I wouldn't like it, and when I heard it, I just loved it. It had such an attitude and a swagger ... super cocky, and just a fun song. We just thought it was the perfect song for Jeezy [to do a verse on]. It was made for him to collaborate on it. And I think he did an amazing job.”
The video is being directed by Melina Matsoukas- who has made promos for Leona Lewis, Lady GaGa and Lily Allen.
