Rihanna’s ‘Russian Roulette’ Video is Too Obvious ?

Rihanna Director Didn’t Want ‘Russian Roulette’ Video To Be ‘Too Obvious’

The video for Rihanna‘s “Russian Roulette” is just as eerie as the song itself.
In a preview that aired on German TV and stills that appeared on the fan sites,
the singer is seen drowning, being shot at and imprisoned.
Of course, there are scenes of her sitting at a table with a man seeing who can win the deadly game.

Director Anthony Mandler — who also helmed the singer’s “Wait Your Turn” clip —
said the video is the perfect embodiment of the haunting ballad.

“I think that with this song and the meaning of this song and how loaded it all is, no pun intended,
how much imagery and perhaps symbolism that is loaded in this song, the only way to do it was to do something
that was visually challenging,”
he told MTV News about the video, which premieres Friday (November 13) on “20/20.”

Mandler thought of the video as a metaphor for Rihanna’s very public life in the gossip pages,
as opposed to a direct comment on her February assault by then-boyfriend Chris Brown.
