Pink tanks, machine guns, and a little duct tape go a long way in Rihanna’s “couture military” video for “Hard,” the latest single from her fourth album Rated R featuring Young Jeezy. The pop star joins forces with director Melina (Beyoncé, Ciara) for the first time and the results are explosive.
“Everything is surrounded around the idea of something military,” Rihanna says of the clip. “We have tanks, we have troops, we’ve got helicopters, we’ve got explosions. We’ve got lots of cute outfits, lots of bullets. It’s crazy.”
