This weekend, when she wasn’t busy posting pictures and memes on Instagram that mourned the end of Breaking Bad (*SQUEAL!* She’s a BB #fanclub member, just like us!), Rihanna was sharing some behind-the-scenes photos from her upcoming “Pour It Up” music video. The song was released as a single last January, but the video release has been delayed after alleged ~dramz~ between Rih and the director, so it’s unclear if these pictures mean the video is actually on its way, or if RiRi was just showing us what we’re missing. Considering these two looks, we are BIG TIME pulling for this video to see the light of day.

One look features Rih in a silk, lavender romper, which is, oh, NBD, soaking wet. Did she pour water it up all over herself? Is she sweaty from dancing, or maybe she just sweats a lot? The release of the video holds the answers to all our burning questions, and we need to see it. Rih is also decked out in a short, platinum, flapper-esque wig and a diamond choker (her fave). But TBH, the most intriguing thing about the look is her purpley-pink eyebrows—where did those come from?! The entire outfit has enough going on as is (see also: white wig, soaking romper, etc.), that we almost missed them completely! But once we took a closer gander, there was no way to stop looking at them. Ever.

The other look takes a page out of the ol’ Miley Cyrus book of wearing fishnet dresses, though Rihanna’s features a mesh cowl-neck for, y’know, modesty. Based on the placement of the “Pour It Up” sticker, it would seem that Rih did not follow Miley’s lead on the black pasty front, but maybe she was just being extra-cautious? The pictures are in black-and-white, so it’s hard to tell if her eyebrows are still purple—perhaps she switched to green?—but her wig is the same, just a bit more mussed. Obvi, your hair can get reeeal messy when you’re putting on a long-sleeved mesh dress. Sure, it’s see-through and stuff, but it can get confusing in there. So many holes!

Knowing Rihanna, two looks does not a video make, so hopefully we can expect more in the full “Pour It Up” video, if we ever get to see it. Also, seriously. We’ve got to get the 411 on those eyebrows.
