Rihanna to Set the World on Fire in New ‘Diamonds’ Music Video
Rihanna has filmed a new music video for her latest smash, ‘Diamonds,’ and photos from the set show the singer surrounded by apocalyptic flames.
The 24-year-old shot the video in Los Angeles on Sunday (Oct. 21) with director Anthony Mandler at the helm. “Heading to set #CCcertified,” Rihanna wrote with a photo of herself. Later she tweeted another pic with a simple hashtag “#Diamonds” as the caption.
Mandler also took to Twitter to write about the shoot, simply saying: “We’re like #Diamonds in the sky..”
While the treatment for the video is still under wraps, the photos from the set show the Barbadian beauty dressed in a slinky off-white gown in one shot, as well as a stylish black dress in another. In the background, Rihanna’s surroundings seem to be destroyed and engulfed in flames.
