Rihanna and Coldplay's collaboration, "Princess of China," now has an accompanying video, even though the British group is nowhere to be seen in the actual clip.

RiRi gets all pan-Asian with the imagery, rocking gilded talons similar to those seen in Thai dance and a purple and crimson kimono. She also sprouts multiple Ganesh-like limbs. The entertainment comes mostly from the brightly-colored visuals, as the songstress pretty much just stays put as swaths of geometric shapes in bold colors swirl in the background.

Entertainment Weekly surmises that Coldplay isn't in the video because the clip is chiefly for the band's tour, and Rihanna won't be able to come play the duet live on all those dates because, well, she's Rihanna and she's got her own rock star obligations.
