About Rihanna's new video...

I absolutely love it.

What I don't love is the comparisons people make.
In some unmentionable places on the net, Rihanna's 'Rude Boy' has been compared to this. Seriously? 'Boyz' looks like a cheap crappy pixelated Gameboy game. Rihanna's video is more Pop art.

Lady Gaga once said that people's references don't go very far back. This is a perfect example.

When I see Rude Boy, I visually imagine this:

Andy Warhol. With a bit of...
...Keith Haring. Mixed in with...

...Rasta colours.
And according to MTV News, I'm right.
"...appears artistically influenced Andy Warhol's pop-art vibe as well as Keith Haring, thanks to its funky graffiti room...catsuit echoing the print in the Haringesque room."

So please, people, do not compare this video to the crap that is Boyz.
