So we know that all the promo pics from the video shoot for Rihanna’s “Umbrella” showed off the nice pair of black toe shoes she wore, and sure enough, there she is, dancing around en pointe while the song stomps around her. But watching the video multiple times, something seemed off to us–like the fact that none of the shots in which those toe-shoe-clad feet are actually shown moving also show her face at the same time. Can we call stunt-leg shenanigans? It’s a pity, really, because the video doesn’t really need the tippy-toe posturing; the song is still a burner, and the whole “Give It Away” homage during the bridge would have sufficed, as far as gimmickry.
