WARNING: EXPLICIT VIDEO

THE good girl has just gone really, really bad.

After much anticipation, Rihanna finally released the completely NSFW video to current single Bitch Better Have My Money on Wednesday night — and it served as a not so gentle reminder that anyone who owes her a debt should pay up.

Co-directed by the Barbadian singer herself (along with French collective Megaforce), it’s a violent but darkly funny revenge fantasy that depicts Ri-Ri and her partners in crime kidnapping a woman.

When her accountant husband (played by Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen) resists paying up, Rihanna gets medieval.

Even scarier, the plot may have roots in real life. In 2009, Rihanna reportedly almost went broke when an accountant advised her to buy a crumbling Beverly Hills mansion. If the new music video is any indication, time hasn’t healed very much.

These are the five weirdest moments from the seven-minute clip.

Rihanna – Bitch Better Have My Money

2.04: Hanging out with some friends

With their kidnap victim tied up, Rihanna and her henchwomen suspend her half-naked, upside down inside a barn in a way that’s reminiscent of one of the more eye-watering scenes in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained.

3.23: Sharpshooting at sea

Clearly, Ri-Ri’s character in Bitch Better Have My Money has assassin-level shooting skills. In one brief scene, Ri-Ri throws her phone off a yacht and blasts it out of the air. Of course, it’s almost certainly a post-production trick, but it looks super cool.

3.37: Weekend at Ri-Ri’s

Rihanna makes a quick nod to the 80s comedy Weekend at Bernie’s when her kidnap victim (now unconscious thanks to a bottle being smashed on her head) is propped up and made to wave to a local law enforcement official. Just a bunch of girls hanging out, officer. Nothing to see here.

3.50: A party to remember (or not)

The gang of girls retires to a motel room and starts using the victim as a plaything, dressing her up, and plying her with drink and drugs. It’s like a wild slumber party hosted by a group of psychotics.

6.00: The reveal

Best to watch this for yourself, but here’s a tiny spoiler: Rihanna gets her money and puts it to pretty interesting use.
