Rihanna Wears a Space Caftan in Her New Video

Rihanna released the video for “Sledgehammer,” the theme song for the upcoming Star Trek: Beyond film, and damn, does she make space look stylish!

In the video, RiRi plays some sort of eyebrowless, caftan-wearing moon goddess, as rocks rise from the surface of a planet and electricity pulses through her fingers. Harnessing this magical pink cosmic energy, she eventually transforms into an interstellar deity, her starry visage illuminating the night’s sky like a distant galaxy.

The final shot sees the Starship Enterprise flying directly toward her, as any right-minded gang of space travelers would. Beam me up, RiRi.
