After tons of generous teaser pics and a behind-the-scenes sneak peek, Rihanna debuted the full-length video for “Pour It Up” yesterday, and WOW. I mean, WOW. The only other word that comes to mind right now is stripper-ific, and that’s not even a real word, so, WOW. ICYMI, the video features Bad Gal RiRi and a ton of scantily-clad dancers getting their twerk on in water, on poles and atop a decadent gold throne. Rih is basically, like, the Queen of a water-drenched strip club kingdom, where booty poppin’ is not only encouraged, it’s expected. But this ain’t your run-of-the-mill strip club kingdom, no ma’am. This place is all about luxury. And the Benjamins. And the Queen rules in heavy chains of Chanel.

We’ve talked about the denim thong, and we’ve seen a shot of what we now know to be a pimped-out floor-length fur coat, but now we NEED to discuss Rihanna’s multiple GIANT Chanel accessories because they are pretty much impossible to miss. When we first get a glimpse of the iconic double C logo, Rih’s just casually dancing in a dark, smoky room, wearing a leather bra over a full-body fishnet jumpsuit (?) that may or may not have a mock turtleneck. But we can’t be sure because CHAINS. DUH-RIPPING in chains. Also, because we are distracted by her massive gold Chanel logo earrings that we never knew we needed until now.

And OH. You didn’t know Chanel made a plated, multi-chain harness double-belt? Well, they do. We know this thanks to, once again, those dangling double C charms. That thing must be custom-made, right? Also, where else could someone wear something like that? I mean, let’s be real: Rihanna can basically wear anything, anywhere (i.e. that time she wore a jacket sans shirt to go shopping), but what about those of us who are suddenly/desperately lusting after it? Where are WE supposed to wear that thing? We’ll figure it out and get back to you after we save up, like, a bajillion dollars.

P.S. Is anyone else concerned with how the weight of all that jewelry is going to affect Rihanna’s posture? No? Just me?
