Rihanna's 'Bitch Better Have My Money' music video is bonkers, fantastic and totally NSFW

Rihanna premiered the music video for “Bitch Better Have My Money” late Wednesday night after debuting a trailer for it at the BET Awards on Sunday and teasing stills from the shoot on her Instagram all week.

The first teaser showed a woman getting into an elevator with her dog, only to meet her twisted fate — Rihanna, duh — and wind up stuffed inside a trunk. Now, we see that the clip only previewed a glimpse of the fresh hell Riri brings upon the woman (and, let’s be real, anyone who crosses her). Bonus: Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen appears towards the end as a total sucker.

Riri directed the 7-minute music video with Megaforce, and she wrote on Instagram that she’d been thinking about the project for eight months. “Ya girl got director skillz!!!” she wrote. “The concept for this piece came to me 8 months ago!!! So you can imagine how anxious I am right now!!!” She also teased that Sita Abellan would be one of her “henchmen” in the vid.
