Rihanna goes 'Geisha' for new Coldplay video

Rihanna has given fans a glimpse at the video for her duet with Coldplay by posting pictures from the 'Geisha'-themed shoot on her Twitter.com page.

The Umbrella hitmaker sings with frontman Chris Martin on their album track Princess of China, which was released to radio stations last month (Feb12).

Now the chart-toppers are filming a promo for the single, and Rihanna shared photographs from the set with her Twitter followers on Friday (23Mar12).

One shows Rihanna, sporting an elaborate up-do and displaying her middle finger, in a sexy black strapless dress slashed to the thigh, which she has captioned, "Gangsta goth geisha".

Another shows a close-up of the singer's face, while a third depicts the Bajan beauty seductively blowing smoke at the camera.
