VIDEO FAB: Coldplay & Rihanna's "Princess Of China" Vid

The official tour version of Coldplay's "Princess of China" vid ft. Rihanna just premiered.  This particular version shows only Rihanna portraying her version of a sexy claw-having Geisha girl.  Check it inside...

This version of the Adria Petty & Alan Bibby-directed video will play behind Coldplay on stage during their upcoming tour as they perform "Princess of China."  The official video for the song will be released in the coming weeks.

About the record, Coldplay's front man/Gwyneth Paltrow's husband/Jay-Z's bestie, Chris Martin, told MTV News:

“Rihanna‘s bit on our record is my favorite bit.  When the song came out, it sort of asked for her to be on it. And I think at this point, we have nothing to lose, and so we’ve been trying some new things and trying to break down the perceived boundaries between different types of music.”

Rihanna performed this song with the band at the 2012 GRAMMY Awards.

The Randomness:

1.  Nicki Minaj's "Starships" video will premiere tonight on MTV right before 8p EST.  She is also shooting a video for her & Chris Brown's song "Right By My Side".

I don't understand why they did so many things that are not associated with China. Japanese Geisha costume, Thai finger claws, evocation of multi-armed Hindu goddesses. I don't understand why they didn't take the time to research these things and find something that is actually Chinese.

actually that is exactly what

actually that is exactly what they meant and the correct term to apply to this video. Orientalism, mysticism and exoticism: According to Edward Said, orientalism refers to the manner in which the West interprets or comes to terms with their experiences and encounters with the foreign or unfamiliar Orient, or the East. Said claimed that "the Orient" was a European invention to denote East Asia as a place of exoticism, romance, and remarkable experiences and also as a concept to contrast (commonly negatively) against Western civilization.[2] The effects of orientalism in Western cultures includes the "othering" of East Asians and East Asian Americans; their cultures and lifestyles perceived as "exotic", in stark contrast to "ordinary" Western customs.[2] While Western cultures are perceived or believed capable of change and modernization, East Asian cultures are considered (in contrast) ancient.

That is a form of dance meant to be dainty and elegant. She looks stiff and uncomfortable, and she's holding her hands like a man in those moves. But then, dancing has never been her strong suit. I don't know if I agree that she's looking washed out and old, I just think she's so overexposed these days that her fatigue is starting to become apparent.
