Rihanna Makes a Bang at NYC Video Shoot


Red alert! Rihanna nearly caused a traffic jam in New York City while shooting the video for her new song “What’s My Name” over the weekend. A smiling RiRi, sporting a colorful outfit and flaming red hair, danced in Central Park and on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, using drumsticks to bang on light posts. Passersby stopped to gawk and take pictures on their cell phones as the Barbados beauty crossed the street.

The video marks the first time the pop star has worked with director Philip Andelman (BeyoncĂ©, Jay-Z). She previously shot a clip for her first single “Only Girl (In the World)” in California. Catch some more red-hot pics and video footage below.

    Just because she isnt bland like your fav. Rocking the same old ass hairstyle and routine year after year.Same old same old. Dont hate. Rihanna takes risks. She is never boring. New sounds, new styles, new energy. Thats why haters always watching, and commenting on her, because they cant look away. She’s way too hot.Keep killing the game Riri.#2 and #3 songs on billboard; who mad!! LoL

  14. imma

  15. Daniel from Israel

    All I have to say is Qalqiliya. It’s so obvious that she’s wearing a weave, she looks so cheap and ugly with that… that’s a shame ’cause she’s a pretty girl. She is a puppet in her label’s hands – they tell her to get a long hair – everyone’s laughing at her that she looks like Ronald McDonald…


  16. Well Alright

    Damn!!!! That Rihanna reign will never let up it just wont lmao.


  17. PRESSED?

  18. PRESSED?

  19. Kyle

    I am so disappointed that she is rocking that red hair this time around. She looks absolutely hideous with that wig on. Other than that, I’m excited to hear what else she has in store for this album!!


  20. Ciara Fan

    beyonce, take notes bytch! Change is good, get rid of the 15 year hairstyle you have been rocking. I wuold love to see beyonce change as much as rihanna does


  21. heather

    COSIGN WIT Nait Phoenix!!!



  22. EL

    I need to hear that song yesterday! That is about to be a smash!

    That’s why she’s getting all this early buzz and pre-publicity. And “Only Girl” is already on its way to No. 1. (Currently at No. 3)

    Get used to her. She’s not going anywhere.
