Rihanna pulls off a dramatic kidnapping in the video for “Bitch Better Have My Money.” While the graphic clip was premiering online, some members of the Rihanna Navy got to experience it first hand.
The pop superstar kidnapped a group of 80 unsuspecting fans who entered the TIDAL x Rihanna contest. They were given blindfolds and boarded onto private buses to an unknown destination. While on board, they were asked trivia questions and given cash for correct answers. Once they arrived at the Bob Baker Marionette Theatre in L.A., they were treated to a late-night screening of “BBHMM.” At the end, Rihanna herself made an appearance.
“Thank you for allowing me and TIDAL to kidnap you and bring you here to see an exclusive premiere of my new video,” she said before mingling with fans in the crowd.
She threw out stacks of cash (from $25-$100), snapped photos, and signed autographs before making an exit.
Watch a recap of the wild night below.
