See, we were always under the impression that Rihanna was just born beautiful, talented and abnormally amazing at dancing. But thanks to some new behind-the-scenes footage from her “Where Have You Been” video rehearsals, it’s become apparent that just like
me most humans, even Rihanna has to practice her running man in the mirror, too.
Watch Rihanna behind the scenes at her “Where Have You Been” video rehearsal.
Filmed while rehearsing the dance performance section of her “Where Have You Been” video, Rihanna is shown working on her moves with a gaggle of backup dancers led by head choreographer/”Step Up 3D” maven, Hi-Hat. Though Rihanna’s moves are close to perfection, Hi-Hat confesses it was hard to find time to teach the busy celeb: “Yesterday, this girl was dancing with french fries in her hand! That hour she was supposed to have for lunch, she wasn’t here yet!” Multitasking at its finest.
As she practices each move, Rihanna explains, “This one is just all about performance… It’s all about evoking emotion through your body. I would never shoot this video if I couldn’t do choreography. ’Cause it would be pretty pointless. It would be disappointing.” We highly doubt that any video that includes you looking LIKE THIS will disappoint, but we totally applaud your work ethic and dedication to making your moves as bangin’ as possible. Additionally, Rihanna, I’m wondering: How much might you charge for a private dance lesson? Asking for a friend.
