It struck me as a bit strange that Coldplay and Rihanna would work together in the first place. (Yes, I know Chris Martin is Jay-Z’s BFF and Rihanna is his protégée.) I wound up liking “Princess of China”–the song–but I can’t say the same about the video. It features all of the cheesiness of a martial arts movie, choreographed in-air fight sequences and everything, plus costumes picked from what seems like every corner of Asia. Riri-diculous.
What do you think?
