Behind The Scenes Of Rihanna's 'R Rated' Photo Shoot

It's Friday and Hurricane Ida is lashing against the east coast. So what better time to watch Rihanna dance around in various states of undress, nearly get attacked by what looks like a baby panther (or really testy black cat), lovingly call her assistants bitches and flaunt that too-cute-for-words Barbados accent of hers?

Check out this behind the scenes video of Rihanna's Rated R album cover photo shoot with legendary photographer Ellen Von Unwerth.

And while we all wait with bated breath for her album to drop on the 23rd, continue to get amped by checking out leaked tracks from Rated R like "Hard" and "Russian Roulette."
