Coldplay & Rihanna: 'Princess of China' Video Premiere!

Check out the official tour edition video for Coldplay‘s “Princess of China” featuring Rihanna.

Coldplay first teased the upcoming video for the song during a tour stop in Edmonton, Canada.

Rihanna‘s bit on our record is my favorite bit,” Chris Martin told MTV News in September. “When the song came out, it sort of asked for her to be on it. And I think at this point, we have nothing to lose, and so we’ve been trying some new things and trying to break down the perceived boundaries between different types of music.”

The official version of the video will be arriving in a few weeks. We can’t wait!

    Ehhh looks boring and plain….sorry Rihanna. Idk but the look, looks more japanesse??…no?

  • mlllllllllllle

    Those kind of nails are not Chinese, they are Indonesian, far from china, you ignorant !

  • Love The Shoes

    I have never been able to nail (no pun intended) down why I don’t like her. I don’t like her music but more than that, I just don’t like her. I actually can’t stand her. I saw her be rude to production worker and then turn around in the same moment and faun all over another celebrity. It disgusted me and that’s the image I have of her. She was a diva and couldn’t be bothered and then was all smooches with her peer and it still irks me when I see her.

    Excuse me, ya’ll, but Ri-ri looks SCARY here!!!! This isn’t a natural look for Ri-ri! UGH-who the heck’s idea was it for this monstrosity?! Probably Miss Fenty’s herself…….Ha! Fashion way over board here.

  • Marie Martell

    dumb video..

  • Lalalove

    Rihanna is usually an attractive girl; however, she looks VERY unattractive in this video. Her forehead protrudes so much here; I completely forgot how big her forehead was… Anyway, Coldplay used to be remotely good before they sold out and started collaborating with people like Rihanna. *sigh* They all sell out at a certain point… PASS on this song and vid.

  • Lalalove

    Jared, hurry up and remove that comment by “ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS”….annoying broad. smh.

  • stephanie

    nice photoshop, by the way i didn’t knew China princess were black and with a monkey nose. LOL

  • Love it

    If the video didnt exist, the soung would have been good..But now its ruined.

  • Daddy

    Emelie Sante is the best singer/song writer this generation Emelie will blow up big this year leaving the hapless less talented singers like Riri, Katy Perry and Gaga behind. Watch for Emelie Sante to experience a true talent with a magnificent voice to see what I mean.

    they can hear, and see what your visually thinking
    this is the absolute complete truth
    The reason a lot of Asians have completely expressionless faces, segregate from everybody else-only associate with Asians and don’t associate with non Asians that much, and are very unfriendly in general is to avoid accidentally revealing that they can read minds. If all over a billion Asians where to show facial expressions all the time just as much as non Asians, integrate and associate with non Asians much more, and be much more friendly and talkative, then a lot of them might accidentally reveal that they can read minds by accidentally showing a facial expression or dirty look when someone thinks, or visually pictures something in their mind they don’t like, find astonishing, or funny etc because those people might see that and and really wonder what that was that just happened there and see the connection, and they might accidentally say something similar to what the person was just thinking and going to say. If they all associated with non Asians a lot more then there would be a lot more people around for them to accidentally show facial expressions when those people think things they don’t like etc, so they segregate and only associate with Asians so there won’t be anyone around for them to see that and have any accidents happen in the first place.
    Think about it, it’s not normal how a lot of them act, it’s not normal human behavior! and the entire way they act is all to hide their mind reading abilities, it makes perfect sense to do all of that to hide that they can read minds, because all of that is the perfect way to do it!
    Every single Asian alive is hiding their mind reading abilities, they don’t want ANYBODY to know that they can read minds, they will always deny that they can read minds, they will lie about having mind reading abilities forever!!!
    Because they value hiding their mind reading abilities more then their own lives!
    That’s why nobody knows about it!
    Try thinking, best yet visually picturing in your mind something absolutely crazy as you possibly can when you are around Asians, and try looking for Asians who give people particular looks, especially dirty looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, that is them giving people looks when they hear and visually see someone thinking something they don’t like, find astonishing, or funny etc.
    It still happens despite a large percentage of Asians having completely expressionless faces all the time, it would just happen a lot more if none of them had completely expressionless faces all the time, it’s still not uncommon!
    I know this may sound crazy, impossible and unbelievable, BUT IT ISN’T CRAZY WHEN ITS TRUE
    You have to spread the message!!!!!!
    The world has to know about this!!!!!!

  • Cold Gay

    I’ve never yawned so hard..

  • Fergie


  • doodle

    LOVE IT!!!

  • sweetness

    uh, that was neither inventive, imaginative or entertaining….it was just one long fashion shoot of Rihanna as a geisha.



  • eden

    c’mon rihanna, you’re just missing some kung fu action and more slanted eye makeup. as someone who is actually ASIAN, this isn’t just boring but it’s pretty silly and ignorant. but why am i not surprised??

  • This is…

    This video is quite offensive. Seriously, to be dressed up as what seems like a nonsensical combination of various outfits meant to evoke Asian-ness with geisha-fied make-up for a music video for a song entitled Princess of China… we might as well go back to the 50s and 60s when Hollywood actors were taping their eyes back and painting their faces yellow so they could play Asians. I mean I guess it’s too much to ask this moronic young woman to think about the racial implications of her work before launching into them, but I didn’t expect this thoughtlessness EVEN from her

  • This is…


    You do realize just how racially offensive it is to accuse a black person of having — of ALL THINGS — a “monkey nose,” right? Did you fall asleep in US history class when you learned about Civil Rights, or are you 9 years old, and haven’t got there yet?

  • bebe

    Don’t want to be mean…but this video seemed very low budget, and the song not good at all, actually quite horrible. Coldplay hasn’t released a reasonable song is years….

  • eden

    @This is…: THANK YOU. So I’m not the only sane one in here thinking this is fked up.

  • Zhanez

    errr… those nails aren’t Chinese! those are from Thailand! and a kimono?! its Japanese, btw! not a chinese thing in this video! stupid! not all asian things came from one place, got it RiRi!?!?!

  • BF

    Gee, wonder where they got the idea from:

  • Minh

    Is this offensive? No. Is it profoundly boring? Yes.

  • M

    I’m Asian [mix Chinese - Indian - Thai]. I’m not offended by the video. I do think she’s styled very terribly and it’s base on Asian stereo-types that comes from ignorance of different Asian cultures. So many people who don’t know about Asia thinks all Asian are all the same when in fact, there is so much diversity in Asia [as in any where else].

  • T.G.M.

    I don’t like the song and I don’t like the music video either. Sorry.

  • Peaches

    @BF: whoah, yeah, direct rip off! coldplay can suck a d*ck.

  • Thi

    I still don’t understand the choice of Coldplay to collaborate with Rihanna. And this video is boring, the look is ridiculous.

  • Natasha Stasyi

    hm… I expected more. Terrible video! btw, those hands behind her and claws just like in Shakira’s video “Give it up to me”.

  • Natasha Stasyi

    @stephanie: Oh, and you also forgot about tattoos. You know, she’s just playing a role.

  • glenn

    kimono, claws..she took the best 4rom those cultures. what does number 1 and 12 ment:( didn’t get anything at all:((

  • Lia

    the song is horrible and she is very boring in this video..
    nothing to look forward to , nothing
    she looks seriously rather stupid than beautiful

  • elea

    Rihanna has a nice voice but she’s the definition of tacky. I was hoping Coldplay would bring the best out of her but this video proved me way wrong.

  • mariaNY

    Now this is a very stupid video..where is Cold Play!!
    I love the song but who wants to see this

  • Thadeous

    This is NOT the music video for Princess of China, it was created to play at the Coldplay concerts during their tour when they are on stage and she is not.
    That’s why it says “tour edition” video. The actual music video is supposed to be much more epic and as he says, arrives in a few weeks. READ, YOU FOOLS, READ!

  • jillyro

    I had heard that Coldplay really wanted Beyonce for this song, but Beyonce said not so they had to settle for the less talented, budget version Rhianna.

  • Matthew Richardson
