Video: Coldplay f/ Rihanna – ‘Princess of China’

Rihanna and Chris Martin

Rihanna journeys to an ancient land with Coldplay in the cinematic video for “Princess of China,” the latest single off the British band’s album Mylo Xyloto. The pop superstar transforms into a “gangsta goth geisha” and sword-wielding samurai in the kung fu-inspired visuals, heating up the screen with frontman Chris Martin.

“The final concept is a movie trailer to an old Kung-fu film,” explained RiRi of the special effects clip. “I get to play a bad samurai bitch. I get to play a cute little geisha bitch.”

Marvel at their masterpiece below.

    @MinajRules2012, She only has about 5 lines she was not enough of a pivotal character to blame the movie bombing on her. FAIL of an accusation…come back a bit smarter next time im not even a stan but your constant stupidity had to be addressed.

    @MinajRules2012, Nice to know you’re a Nicki fan that checks for Rihanna more than Nicki. How many Grammy’s, singles, and albums have/do Rihanna sold/have compared to Nicki? OH, I’ll wait.

    Attention Seeker,
    Man Hungry,
    Groupie (she even appears at the end of the J. Cole/Trey Songz – Can’t Get Enough video).
    Chris Brown said it after he Knocked her the Fuck Out back in 2009 as well.

    I feel like the video was a little culturally insensitive.

    The song is called “Princess of CHINA” but she is portraying herself as a Geisha?

    China and Japan are two different things

    Geisha’s are part of Japanese culture not Chinese

    other than that it was a cute video
