Rihanna ‘Diamonds’ Video Reveals Singer’s Deeper Side

Rihanna certainly knows how to turn her emotions into compelling art and her latest video for the single “Diamonds” reveals this more than ever.

The singer has been under intense scrutiny for painful topics like her complicated relationship with Chris Brown and her grandmother’s recent death.

She is clearly drawing on this for inspiration in the song, when she sings, “We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky/ Shine bright like a diamond.”

Although these words, and the video itself, don’t come delivered with a cocky swagger. However, there is the somber realization that this brightness often fades all too soon.

In this light, Rihanna’s song acts as a reminder that the brightest and beautiful moments in life are ephemeral and should be treasured. For all her dramatic moments and playful pop star comments, the Def Jam signee reveals her deeply emotional and sensitive side in video.

Witness RiRi’s moving video below and look for her new album, Unapologetic, out Nov. 19.
