Rihanna and Coldplay shoot ‘gangsta goth geisha’ video

Singer posts snaps from video shoot on Twitter

Rihanna has posted “gangsta goth” photos from the set of her and Coldplay’s ‘Princess Of China’ video shoot.

The ‘We Found Love’ singer put the photos of her, looking as controversial as one can be while shooting a Coldplay promo, on her Twitter this morning (March 23).

In one snap, which you can see at the top of the page, Rihanna, wearing freakishly long fingernail extensions, sticks her middle finger up at the camera. Beside the picture she tweeted the words “gangsta goth”. In another, which you can see on the right, she is dressed like a geisha with smoke bellowing out of her mouth.

It’s currently unclear whether Chris Martin will be applying mascara to his eyelashes for the video, and we might just have to wait until it is released to see if he copies Rihanna’s aggro-attitude by flipping the bird while dressed as a geisha. The pictures are from the video shoot of Rihanna and Coldplay’s ‘Princess Of China’ collaboration, which appeared on Coldplay’s recent album, ‘Mylo Xyloto’.

In an earlier interview with NME, which you can see by clicking on the video below, Martin said Rihanna was the only person the band wanted to sing on the track.
