Behind the Video: Rihanna – ‘Diamonds’

Rihanna

Rihanna sets the screen ablaze in the video for “Diamonds.” The sexy singer shot the apocalyptic clip last month in downtown Los Angeles with director Anthony Mandler. In the behind-the-scenes footage (via MTV News), she is seen walking out of her trailer, floating in a pool of water, and standing amongst destruction and fire as a riot breaks out.

The full video will premiere Thursday at 6:50 p.m. EST on MTV.

“Diamonds” is the first single off Rihanna’s seventh album Unapologetic, due November 19.
