"Numb" is a fantastic song. Let's just get that out there at the outset.
The video is great too. It's also an occasion to for Rihanna to show off all her tattoos as well as lots of flesh.
At 1:43 you can spot her tat which reads (though you can't in fact read it) in Arabic (roughly translated) "Freedom in Christ/the Messiah." Viewers might not have noticed because they were looking at something else. Or maybe at her new Isis tattoo. (For a better view of the Egyptian goddess Isis tat and the Arabic one, go here.) Another view of the Isis tat is: here.
I've blogged about these Arabic tats before. And about Rihanna's pro-imperialist vid, "Hard," too.
I just thought you Rihanna heads should know about this latest sighting. Don't forget to listen to the song. (I want to know who is rapping early on. Before Eminem kicks in.)
