Rihanna finished to shoot the “Russian Roulette” music video a few hours ago. We’re still not sure where exactly the video was shot, but we guess it wasn’t shot only in Los Angeles.
The video was shot in two days: Friday and Saturday night, until around 7am – in both days! It’s been said that the video will be hot, sexy and will make history. There are no pictures of RiRi on the set.
Anthony Mandler is rumoured to be the director… again.
The video will premiere on November 6th!

People want to learn more about Rihanna simply because they like her music and admire her beauty and fashion sense. Thatâ€™s our story and weâ€™re sticking to it.
Back in 2008, Rihanna Daily asked Rihanna’s dancer Bryan Takana – who’s working with Beyonce now – 10 questions.
1) What’s your full name?
Bryan Kekoa Tanaka.
2) When and where were you born?
April 11th 1983 in Olympia, WA.
3) When did you first start working with Rihanna?
I danced for her when she did a tribute for Destiny’s Child on the World Music Awards back in 2005. But really started our working relationship when the Umbrella video came out in March of 2007!
4) What was the funniest and what was the scariest moment you’ve had with Rihanna so far?
The funniest moment with Rihanna was on our last show of our 1st European tour. We played sooo many pranks on stage. The highlight was when me and Julius came out as Egyptian Pharaohs on “Question Existing.” We made her crack up during her song!
5) What was the best/most interesting place you’ve ever played? Why?
The most interesting place we’ve played together was Abuja, Nigeria. The performance was kinda chaotic due to lack of preparation from the Nigerian side. It got made up when Jay-Z took the stage with her though. But the icing of it all was that half of our crew got stranded in Abuja for an extra 2 days and I missed our next show because of it!
6) What’s the best part about working with Rihanna?
The best part about working for Rihanna is that she is the most caring, smart, and down to earth woman. Not too mention she’s drop dead gorgeous.
7) Will you keep working with Rihanna during her next album?
It’s up in the air but I hope to be working with her on her next album.
8) What other profession would you have liked to attempt if it didn’t turn out this way?
Firefighter or Physical Therapy.
9) Describe your personality in 3 words.
Goofy, Caring, and Focused.
10) Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
In 10 years I see myself as an actor, choreographer, dance teacher, and proud parent.
Thank you so much, Bryan!

In other news, we guess Rihanna is in Los Angeles now. She will start rehearsing for upcoming performances/tour soon.
According to one of the RihannaDaily.com sources and adressa.no, “The Wait Is Ova” is the second single of Rihanna’s upcoming album: Rated R.
Mikkel Storleer Eriksen and Stargate produced the song, and he can report good news from Rihanna’s record label.
“We were just told that they go for ‘The Wait Is Ova’ as next single and that it will launch in a few weeks before the album release. It means a lot to us to be a part of a single-release in this format,” said an elated Mikkel Eriksen to Adressa.no.
Mikkel says he is very pleased that Rihanna chose just “Russian Roulette” as the first single.
“Yes. We love the song. It was written by Ne-Yo, and we hope it can help pull up our song too,” said Mikkel.
“Our song is pretty atypical Rihanna and has a much harder sound than ‘Russian Roulette’.”
You can listen to part of the song here. Rihanna shot theÂ ‘The Wait Is Ova’ music video in New York City last week.

The American Music Awards are about to get another boost of star power. Rihanna has been added to the lineup for the 2009 AMAs.
Sources exclusively tell Rap-Up.com that the â€œRussian Rouletteâ€ singer will take the stage at the 37th annual show on Sunday, November 22, a day before her fourth album Rated R is released on Super Monday.
Rihanna has performed twice on the show in the past and won three awards, including Favorite Soul/R&B Female Artist and Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist.
Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez, Black Eyed Peas, and Taylor Swift have previously been announced as performers. The AMAs will broadcast live from Los Angelesâ€™ NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE on Sunday, November 22, at 8 p.m. EST/PST on ABC.
Ne-Yo and Rihanna certainly have a special working relationship. After collaborating on some of Rihanna’s most memorable hits, they came together, with the help of producer Chuck Harmony, for her latest single, “Russian Roulette.” But the new track, off her upcoming Rated R album, sounds very little like “Hate That I Love You” or “Take a Bow.”
Ne-Yo said Rihanna requested the song’s somber vibe. “She wanted to be dark, but not just dark for the sake of being dark,” he told MTV News. “Dark with kind of a meaning, dark with some kind of thing to it.”
Ne-Yo called the track “my first ventures off into the fictitious,” as he explained how he came up with the haunting Russian roulette theme, which appears to be a metaphor.
