Rihanna Debuts “Pour It Up” Music Video, Wears Dollar Bills and Twerks

If there's anyone who can make Miley Cyrus' twerking and teddy bear leotard look tame, it would have to be Rihanna. The "Diamonds" singer debuted her new music video for sultry hit "Pour It Up" on Wednesday, Oct. 2, and she didn't hold back when it came to turning up the shock factor.

In the green smoke-filled video, Rihanna, 25, perches haughtily on a golden throne in a diamond bikini top that just barely covers her nipples, coupled with tiny red bikini bottoms covered in dollar bills and elbow-length black leather gloves.

The songstress tops off the look with dollar bill-print platform heels, dark shades and a blonde wig of tight curls.

Though the video features several different women sliding up and down poles amid a hail of dollar bills, it's Rihanna's turn as a stripper, twerking up against the throne, the pole, and the ground, that ultimately gives the video its over-the-edge appeal.

Though Rihanna's legion of fans are already showering their praise for the sexy singer, the video itself — which Rihanna co-directed — is reportedly already in the process of getting banned for its raunchy content.

"I bet you never seen bitches twerk on water," she tweeted on Wednesday.
