Video Premiere: Rihanna Gets Serious In “Stay” (Plus Two Other Famous Bathtub Videos!)


Lost in emotion. Rihanna is a beauty, whether she shines bright or strips bare, as she proves in her latest introspective video, “Stay.” There’s no fashion, flash, or sparkling diamonds here, just a girl wearing nothing but tattoos and raw emotion. Along with Nashville singer Mikky Ekko, Rihanna’s piano ballad is as haunting as her eerie reflection in the murky water.

Rihanna isn’t the first pop star to brood in a bathtub. Janet Jackson and Britney Spears also bared their emotion immersed in water. The original pop queen Janet bared all in a blue lagoon for her “Every Time” video. A little less glam, Britney’s tub scene in her “Everytime” video proved dark foreshadowing into her troubled world.

Watch all three videos after the jump.

Rihanna- “Stay”
