Coldplay and Rihanna’s Music Video: Princess of China
Oh and a few other asian countries….
The longly awaited music video to Coldplay and Rihanna’s hit song ‘Princess of China’ has been released and it is getting quite a bit of media attention. Many different sights are getting in on the action and attempting to give their reviews and a lot seem to be, well, missing the mark. The music video is inspired by chinese culture, but also has many Japanese and Indian elements, but to be completely honest most of America probably won’t even notice as they struggle to define the differences between the adverse cultures. And by probably I mean ‘certainly’. MTV News were straight onto the music video giving their praise and stating
“Rihanna’s look is also a standout as she appears in several forms: multi-armed goddess, heartbroken geisha and fierce warrior princess.”
Um MTV, multi-armed goddesses are a reference to the Hindu Gods which aren’t exactly chinese, actually they are not even close to chinese. But I’m sure India, Nepal and Bangladesh will appreciate the shout out. And MTV, ‘heartbroken geisha’ nice try, but geisha’s are Japanese, common mistake, but honestly MTV. And not to mention fierce warrior princess, relying on what? Disney? To give you your wealth of chinese knowledge. So overall although the video is more the ‘Princess of all of Asia’ rather than just China, it is still beautifully shot and I have to give credit to them for creating a music video unlike every other one we see today, so overall great job Ri Ri and Coldy. See for yourselves and tell me what you think?
