Rihanna – ‘Disturbia’ Video

Published: Monday 21st Jul 2008 by Sam

The video for Rihanna’s latest single ‘Disturbia’ premiered today. Put simple, the David LaChapelle clip is truly awesome, however the song is truly the pits – which is s shame. Still, I can see this one being another hit for the 20 year old. More power to her, I guess…

What do you think of the video?

    The vid is ok but I don’t like the song..

  2. SweetSugarShack July 22, 2008

    …I love the song. Can’t stop playing it. The video did a good job at depicting the mood of the song. Dark, twisted, borderline psychotic.

  3. SELITA July 22, 2008

    The most amazing video i have seen in a really long time..get rihanna…another hit, the song is crazy good, the video utterly orgasmic

    She’s bagged this, good song + great video = Another worldwide number one smash from Rihanna.

    See this is how you successfully promote a single, shame so many underrated artists havent worked that out yet.

    –as if rihanna had any input in this video

    rihanna is a big enough star, to input her creativity. any lable would sign her ina heartbeat, all she would have to say, is
    “if i dont get Juicy fruit im going to another label” and she gets her gum….shes a huge star…of course she had input…she chose disturbia, it was the same as umbrella…she heard it, she wanted it, originally breakin dishes was suppose to be the next single…but she wanted this out instead.

    i’ve seen videos like this from christina madonna lady gaga and the list goes on. but i guess it’s different for her. the europeans will eat this up since it’s the generic stuff they like

    Luv luv luv the creativity of this video. Something different. And something that goes with the song! Great job Rhi!

    Wow, this video is totally amazing.. Had nice 80’s retro chic, and serious goth overtones. And the song rocks. Very perfectly timed w/ worldwide obsession with Dark Knight. Fits right into the moment.

  18. Anonymous July 22, 2008

    Once again, I’m not feelin’ it. I will say up tempo beats do an amazing job of hiding her limited vocals.

    this video was scary but it reminds me of a janet jackson/michael jackson type video. thats definitely a good thing. i love the song. hot video. 10/10 go rihanna!!!

  22. Anonymous July 22, 2008

    Well nothing from this video screams original to me this video reminds me of Christina Aguilera’s video Fire but abit more weird either way I dont care for the video or the song most ppl*stans* only like it because its Rihanna

    Since ppl are always saying Beyonce need to sit down *not that she needs to anyway because music is kinda lame without her*

    I vote Rihanna to sit her ass down cuz im getting sick of seeing her big ass head everywhere the first album was lame and so is the re-release and she did a poor job at picking some songs as a single no hate hear I just think she should just let this album go and move on to something else like going away for a year or 2

    at this point im bored and so over rihanna

    Wheres Beyonce when you need her or even Alicia Keys and Mairah Carey ppl who can really put out great music and write it themselves

  23. Anonymous July 22, 2008

    Wow, this is HOTT. The video suits the song perfectly. It’s on some MJ “Thriller”-ish. It’s a really good look.

    This b**** is awesome and stop name dropping that fat b**** Weaveonce, the f****** w**** will be back so get out of her ass, is she paying you to mention her all the time, because it’s PATHETIC!!!!!!

    Anyways super duper HOOOOT video, best video of the year EASILY!

    And has anyone else noticed how Sam ALWAYS puts “review in a bit” but never ever adds one, what a lazy liying b******, i dont know why i like this site, but Sam your still awesome and so is this site, but you only copy paste stories and write minimal stuff, so it shouldnt be a problem to write a review on the spot.

  27. Anonymous July 22, 2008

    i don’t ever see beyonce or any of them other people mentioned put out great videos like this. Sure most of them are better singers but the siging shouldn’t be the main thing. it’s the way you change history….

  28. yaya July 22, 2008

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I sooo agree with you…Rihanna did the damn ting amazing video

  29. Anonymous July 22, 2008

    So not liking Rihanna makes you a hater?

    Because her stans are tripping in these comments about people not like this video or song

    Well point is not ever one has to like mediocre talent like rihanna just like people dont have to like great talent like the person said Beyonce,Alicia Keys, and well Mariah etc…. Hell Keri Hilson and Jazmine Sullivan are better then rihanna

    plus rihanna is just gonna kill this song when she sings it live because all she gon do is sit there and move her head and hands around like she alsways do and sing in a very flat key

    point blank you cant make everyone like she’s not what I would call real talent she is just an it girl in my book take away her writers an producers and what do yo have NOTHING

    hit me up when she starts writing some hits to add to her album and not depend on others to do it for her

  30. Jordan A. July 22, 2008

    It’s a good (really really good) video, but she’s trying too hard to be edgy. None of this comes off natural. And I’d have less of a problem with her being an “it” girl if she just had a bit more personality/creativity/talent.

  31. TRINA July 22, 2008

    I love this video! Song doesnt make it though.
    For those of you who think it’s too much, you have to rememeber that Rihanna has to ‘overdo it’ to cover up the fact that she can’t sing… Very clever management I think.

  32. Anonymous July 22, 2008

    this girl wants this to be another huge worldwide hit like umbrella.
    but why is the uk getting rehab and not disturbia for release?
    i think that’s stupid since people there are buying disturbia and the video’s out. sooo…
    doesn’t make sense.

  33. SamIsA… July 22, 2008

    Ah, ha ha! Let’s go down the f****** list here.

    The reason GAYMAN hasn’t review this yet is because he KNOWS it is the f****** hotness. Realize it, love it, suck it.

    Who in the f*** came up in this b**** and said “she needs to sit down.” F*** you, fugly ass, fat ass BeYAWNce needs to sit down. LoL, “she’s gonna kill this performance, all she going to do is sit there and bob her head like always.” So? All fat ass does is swing her nappy ass weave around.

    @ Trina, it’s not too much, stupid. Rihanna CAN sing. I will say it once more, you don’t have to sound like Mariah Carey (who no one is checkin’ for anymore) to be able to sing. She has talent, realize this b****.

    BeYAWNce is not going to be sucessful anymore. I’m telling you this right now! No one is checking for her anymore. NO ONE but Sam’s followers. I’m actually starting think all those anonymous comments ARE from Sam’s stupid ass. But whatever, BeYAWNce had to re-release her wack ass album four times before anybody started caring about it. No one is going to care about this stupid s***. The demos she put out, sucked, sorry but they do.

    Rihanna, who is the new Princess of Pop, realize it, is going to be around for a long time. Get use to it!

    ^^^ rihanna is jealous of bey so what are you saying

  35. Anonymous July 22, 2008

    SamISA is right!!!!!!!!!!! but he doesnt review any of the video, wtf, how unprofesh, he always writes that s*** and doesnt write anything

    Mariah is still the s*** and ppl still are checkin for her, i agree with u on everything but that, its her who went out of the limelite and stopped promoting her album but her new video is already #1 on bet. shes the s*** and Rihanna said Mariah was her first inspiration

    back to the point, Disturbia is the s***, this video is fly

    Beyonce fans are pathetic

  36. Anonymous July 22, 2008

    the video link is broken so to view the video for disturbia go on perezhilton.com it’s on there

  37. Lewis July 22, 2008

    i’m a big massive fan of rihanna and i absolutely love disturbia and the video for it is amazing! i know it will do well in the charts 🙂 but i think she should take a break and make a new album after having this guaranteed success with disturbia as she has been releasing singles from GGGB for over a year now i don’t want to get bored of her.

  38. SamIsA… July 22, 2008

    Oops, sorry. Meant Whitney, not Mariah. Haters just irk me so.

  39. Anonymous July 22, 2008

    I am so sick of people using the word “hater”.. Just because some people don’t like Rihanna’s song/video doesn’t mean they are hating!! Not everyone is going to like the same artists.. Personally I don’t like Rihanna but I will give her credit when due.. I like the video but I don’t like the song.. That doesn’t make me a hater..

  40. Anonymous July 22, 2008

    I’m not of fan of any of the above mentioned, and feel no need to act a fool w/my comments (unlike some others), but I don’t like the video or song. Riri would be better off as a model opposed to a proclaimed singer.

  41. Anonymous July 22, 2008

    I don't like her and i wouldnt call her music r&b, it's merely ordinary bubblegumdancepop with a little taste of r&b (and with r&b i mean elements like britney did on boys or christina has dione on dirty)

    real r&b is maybe lauryn hill, or estelle or maybe beyoncé. its neither rihanna nor ciara, that just some little stupid fakers. also i wouldnt describe mariahs music as one of this genre, ys shes got a damn good oice, but i think, she makes pop.

Just for the record, I never said it was too much, in fact I actually said the opposite… I think you have some issues, why don’t you call this number: 08457 90 90 90 – tell them how much you hate Sam and how much you love Rihanna.

    the video is hot but there something missing a sickning dance routine like the thriller video .all i have to say rhianna is here to stay haters get ready this girl is the s***!!

  47. DreamWriter July 23, 2008

    “I vote Rihanna to sit her ass down cuz im getting sick of seeing her big ass head everywhere”

    That’s what I don’t understand. Why is it that Beyonce is overexposed by releasing an album every two years and being on a magazine cover from time to time, yet it’s fine for Rihorror to be on multiple magazine covers in one week, release a new album every year, do duets, do movies, etc.

    Well, JLo was the IT girl and it didn’t last, so Rihbot better enjoy it while she can. Soon the fashion and swaggerjacking won’t be able to save her talentless behind and she’ll fade away, letting more talented people take their rightful place.

    Rihorror and Breezy are perfect for each other. Both clearly love Michael Jackson and will copy everything he does, unable to be ORIGINAL!!

    but she is a way better singer than jlo

    its what you would expect from rihanna
    still good just not my favorite

    I have just viewed the best video to hit television in the last year or so. I mean this video was exceptionally good. From the creative vibe,the choregraphy,clothes, make-up , hell even the shoes. Damn!! rihanna did it again. I mean a video is suppose to add visual aid to the song and hell if she did. Its dark and scary .. I honestly think it couold be consindered as the new century Thiller! Damn!!! I mean how can you hate on her sam and everyone else. Yes the song might be a little midiocore. But hell i bet she’ll have you singing. Bum,bum,bum … lol
    I love it. I can see this/ hell it already is a huge success. Rihanna is sellable. She appeals to others. She knows how to sell herself good. So thats easy money. This Video will be on televisions everywhere starting tomorrow. SO EAT YOUR HEARTS OUT! SHE MIGHT NOT BE THE WHITNEY HOUSTON THAT YOU WANT BUT HELL SHE GIVES YOU WHAT YOU NEED. AND I KNOW CAUSE I HAVE EVERY ABLUM TO DATE. She is keeping wit the theme of her album. So hell more power to you Rihanna. Keep stacking that paper and soon awards. Cause this is easiely the video of the year. Dont think so….. Hit up Rihannadaily. Com and view it for yourself NOW!!!!!

    I saw no comparison to Christina Aguleria's "Fighter" video. LMAFO @ that one… I am actually becoming a Rihanna fan as the days go by. The song & vid are great. The vid completley matches the song in my opinion. Both the song & video give you that dark & eerie feeling… O & 4 some reason when she has on that crownish lookin thing in the vid, she kinda reminds me of Aaliyah in "Queen of the Damned", but again that's just my opinion.

  53. Anonymous July 23, 2008

    Samisa… you give Rihanna way more credit than she deserves… You say SO?, to the ppl who wanna talk about Rihanna moving her hands & arms on stage & compare that to Beyonce, well i'm here to say SO… You know once Beyonce comes back out Rihanna will be no more & than everyone will have someone new to hate on. And you said no one is checking for Beyonce? LMMFAOH!!!!! Have yo read the comments lately about everybody wanting Beyonce to come back dumbass? And Sam always puts "Review in a lil bit" on almost every video, its nothing personal with Rihanna, even though he doesn't like her. And you said Beyonce had to release her album 4 times for people to be checking for it… WRONG AGAIN DUMBASS!!! She last i checked she released it twice, once on her birthday & the second time was a re-release version.

    In my opinion, Samisa is definitley a Rihanna stan… Becuz only a stan of an artist would make b******* claims about another artist of Beyonce's calliber just to make themselves feel better about Rihanna when everyone is dissing her. If you don't believe me, then tell me why is it that everytime Sam posts something about Rihanna Samisa is sure to be on there putting down Queen B & make no mistake about it she is the Queen, Rihanna is not because you saide it yourself, she's the Pop Princess, right? ASSHOLE!!!!

    She really needs a break now. she said on TRL her fourth album will be released next year. so she will probably be in our faces til 2010. Looks like we will just have to gett used to rihanna-mania.
