Rihanna Raises a Glass In 'Cheers' Video, Feat. Kanye, Jay-Z & Avril Cameos
Perez Hilton isn't tied to a leash, walking on all fours in Rihanna's new music video. There are no special effects or crazy storylines -- and no chance of lawsuits. The video for "Cheers (Drink To That)" is just a look at Rihanna's day-to-day life -- a storyline that is exciting enough in itself.
Rihanna's video, which features behind-the-scenes and live footage from Rihanna's tour, debuted late last night. Watch the 23-year-old pop star raise her glass and "cheers to the freaking weekend" in the video below.
Video: Rihanna's "Cheers (Drink To That)"
Cheering fans kick off the energetic club track, as the video cuts between professional and candid footage, shot on stage, on the tour bus, out on the town and everywhere in between. In one scene, Rihanna dons a colorful feathered headdress and poses with fans, then joins dancing performers at a street fair in her native Barbados.
Her family, crew and friends all make cameos throughout the almost-five minute clip. Jay-Z and Kanye West can both be spotted in the concert footage, while Avril Lavigne can even be seen drinking and joking by the pool in a few blink-and-you'll-miss-it shots.
Rihanna toasts her fans during her live performances, and the clip shows the thousands that go out to cheer for the young star every night. Following the release of the video, Rihanna tweeted, "CHEERS... U like??? #drinktothat #RihannaNavy I love yall forever!!!!! Keep making me proud!"
