Rihanna’s “Needed Me” Video: Watch The NSFW Harmony Korine-Directed, 4/20-Themed Clip

Rihanna's "Needed Me" Video: Watch The NSFW Harmony Korine-Directed, 4/20-Themed Clip

 

In celebration of 4/20, Rihanna released the music video for her latest single, “Needed Me,” off her recent album “ANTI.” The visually impacting clip was helmed by none other than Harmony Korine, the indie director behind cult classics like “Spring Breakers,” “Gummo” and “Julien Donkey-Boy.”

In the video Rihanna appears half-dressed in a white, sheer robe as she roams an elegant seaside mansion and carries a gun. Various scenes show the singer in a strip club and men with masks holding large guns – reminding us of the James Franco-starring film. Watch the NSFW video above.

Korine has directed a number of music videos such as “Gold on the Ceiling” by The Black Keys, “Sunday” starring Macaulay Culkin and Rachel Miner for Sonic Youth, “Living Proof” by Cat Power and more. 

The director, producer and author has been an indie favorite since the 1995 Larry Clark-film “Kids” with Chloë Sevigny and Rosario Dawson, which he wrote the screenplay. In 2009, his film “Trash Humpers” premiered at the Toronto Film Festival and won the DOX Award, the top honor at the European film festival CPH:DOX.
