“I won”t remember this in the morning”: Tired Rihanna reveals she”s overworked as she films You Da One against Hackney backdrop
It looks like her time with Londoner Dudley O”Shaughnessy influenced her new music video.
Rihanna filmed You Da One on location in east London”s Hackney and has now released a behind-the-scenes preview of the piece.
Riri has gone for a less energetic level with the follow up to We Found Love and shows a more low-key side to herself.

The Bajan beauty wears a number of outfits and wigs through out the video.
In one scene she pays homage to Stanley Kubrick”s A Clockwork Orange by wearing a white bowler hat as she dances with a cane.
The 23-year-old filmed the video while she was in England for her string of concerts at the O2 Arena in London last month.

The hectic schedule of the superstar was beginning to take its toll on the singer and her face was covered in make-up to try and hide the tiredness.
In one clip an exhausted Rihanna turns to the camera and says: “I’m not going to remember this tomorrow!”
As well as several blonde wigs the Umbrella singer also sports a new mouth accessory.

Rihanna can be seen following in the footsteps of rappers such as Kanye West, by wearing a grill.
She places a gold brace on the bottom half of her jaw and smiles for a camera close-up.
You Da One is the second single to be released from Talk That Talk after the success of the number one hit We Found Love.
Rihanna spoke to MTV about the addictiveness of the new song.

She said: “To me, it”s very infectious: The more you listen to it, the more you want to listen to it.
“It had a reggae vibe, but it”s a sweet little love letter. I love the record. It”s kind of dirty, I love it.”
Riri wasn”t in such a chilled out mood yesterday, however, when she hit out at a fashion writer”s comments in a recent issue of the Dutch magazine Jackie.

“To encourage segregation, to mislead the future leaders to act in the past! You put two words together, with the intent of abasement, that made no sense … “N—a B***h”!….Well with all respect, on behalf of my race, here are my two words for you … F— YOU!!!”
