Rihanna – Diamonds Video

It’s no wonder Anthony Mandler directed this video, it reminds me a lot of “Disturbia” (another Ri Ri video that Mandler directed). “Diamonds” is broken up into several different scenes: Ri Ri running down a dark road, sitting in a destroyed room that is being pieced back together in reverse, floating in the sea, standing among ruins with wild horses running around, you get it; there are many ways to read into Rihanna’s fragmented world. However, Mandler has managed to capture the crux of Rihanna’s disillusioned past and present it as it may play out in her mind; Rihanna’s stream of consciousness. The video brings its viewer into a very mysterious world, a world where love is as fragile and as dangerously consuming as a diamond.
