Rihanna‘s sexy ELLE cover, which is the fashion mag’s May issue, is already generating plenty of chatter, since the singer: a) looks stunning in the clothes; and b) opens her mouth about her much-criticized collabo with ex-BF Chris Brown.

Ri can get tongues wagging yet again, as the short film (based on the cover shoot) is now available for your viewing pleasure.

Set in 1956 Havana, this three-minute, Tom Munro-lensed film offers a voiceover in Spanish and plenty of scenes of RiRi in a belly-baring white ensemble.

There is a scene where a man is dancing feverdly in the street. The singer is a few floors up in her apartment, looking down and watching. She then joins him, dancing in her window in her room. So they connect from quite a distance through the vehicle of music.

There’s also footage of RiRi and a bad boy in a car, arguing a bit. The staging has a Bonnie and Clyde look, as we previously noted.

If you viewed the images from the mag, the clothes look familiar, as the ‘We Found Love’ singer is wearing them here.

Essentially, for three minutes, we watch Ri act. Or is that “react?”
