The highly anticipated video release for “Princess of China” by UK band Coldplay featuring Rihanna has finally made its debut.
The singer dons a Geisha getup with long press on nails while visuals of the band performing while on tour. She doesn’t move much. Just hand movements giving off some kind of multiple handwork illusion. Frankly, it’s quite boring. Well, except for Rihanna’s right leg on display. Kind of remind of Angelina during her Academy Award red carpet pose. Yeah, the one that became a trending topic on Twitter. Is that like a new thing now, a pose trend? Check it out.
A good song with an under developed video. Then again, I never really got Coldplay or any of their previous videos so who am I to speak? But on a positive note, it was probably a smart decision to just feature the singer for the entire video. She’s our modern day Madonna, a visual artist. And although you’re not sure what you’re looking at you want to keep looking at her. Maybe some thought went into this after all.
